At any given time, just about every spare neuron I have that’s not keeping me breathing is contemplating that age old question that all of us have asked ourselves at least once in our lives; If I had super powers what would I do? Would I keep them a secret? Would I save people from natural disasters but vow never to meddle in the politics of the world? Or would I make my own mind up on what the world should be like then force my will upon the world?
These are the questions that drive my imagination and I’m sure I’m not the only one that indulges in a little omnipotent fantasy, and on a more serious angle it does actually help one work through some very sticky ethical issues that one may apply to every day life- If you honestly consider the choices available to one with infinite power and what you’d choose to change, then it can be quite a revealing exercise.
Stay tuned for some more thought provoking super powered dilemmas.
