What spiritual or super powers would you want?
« on: November 04, 2013, 02:29:53 AM »
It's a serious question I've always wondered to myself. I guess if I could choose any powers that I wanted, the only one I would be interested in is having omnipresence. The ability to be everywhere and know what is always going on would give me an extreme, although unapparent (to others) advantage over everybody.

Of course this is all hypothetical, but we could probably have some fun with this. Hypothetically what powers would you want? Any powers you want that would give you whatever you want. Heh, now I have even more reason to understand why both religion and sci-fi movies have such a broad appeal.

I don't get what you mean by spiritual powers, but I would be happy with the ability to travel space quickly and without a suit. Likewise I would want to be able to breath in any environment and survive extreme heat and extreme cold so that I could explore everything the universe has to offer. Maybe see what the inside of a star looks like or find fossils deep under the ocean of a foreign planet, shit like that. If I encountered other civilized life, the ability to blend in with them would be amazing to.

Infact, I could live with just the last one... the ability to merge and blend in with any culture, both human and alien, and teleport to those culture's when ever I chose to.

Another power I would like is to make any one I encounter happy.

Meh.. The power to raise the dead I suppose.. Sounds REALLY profitable. Imagine how much you could charge for that service. :shock:
And don't give me your crap about the ethics and morality of selectively raising the dead.. Nobody has that ability anyway. :roll:

My super power would be the ability to strike people reasonable for about half an hour or so.

I suppose if I had a '12th-level intellect' like Brainiac 5, I could figure out how to get most of the other things I might want.

To be born the most beautiful lesbian in the world. :shock:   :lol:  To be immortal and be able to do whatever I want to by my will alone actually. It wouldn't be bad to live near Azure either.  :-$  Don't tell anyone where that is!  :lol:  Solitary

This is pretty much what I want. Absolute knowledge of the universe, with the answer to any question that can be asked. All I have to do is have the questioned posed to me or ask it myself and I will know. If not that, then instantaneous teleportation, a la Jumper.

FLYING!

frosty, did you mean any 'supernatural mind power' with 'spirituality'?

Some people consider things like "remote viewing" or "telekinesis" as "spiritual" abilities so that's why I put the term there. Nothing else to it.

Immortality.

Or more specifically to remain at age 21 forever.

Death is a real nuisance. There's so much in this world, this universe, that I want to explore and discover, and our lifetime is far too short!
