If You Could Change Just One Thing

Mon Jan 23, 2006 7:08 pm

If a magic genie gave you the power to change one thing in the whole universe, regardless of how sweeping it might be, what would you wish for, and why? (Proviso: You cannot wish for any more wishes.)

Some examples of what you could wish for would be:

1. Make interstellar travel easy and affordable.

2. Restore the divine rule of kings and make yourself king.

3. Make yourself immortal.

4. Eliminate an opposing political party.

5. Eliminate war.

6. Eliminate injustice.

7. Make yourself the richest and most powerful person in the universe.

But remember: You only have one wish.

What would it be?

That really is depressing! But consider: Some believers in reincarnation may say that this would only mean that you would be born to some other parents, at some other time.

If I cared enough about the universe, I'd wish everyone would inform themselves and not think they know enough.

I'd keep it from happening.

2. Restore the divine rule of kings and make yourself king.

Hey, only WIlliam gets to be King. Big grin

Quoting AerospaceFan (Thread starter):
3. Make yourself immortal.

What idiot wants to watch the entire human civilization die out? This person will get more and more cynical with time, until all they do with their time is get high.

Quoting AerospaceFan (Thread starter):
4. Eliminate an opposing political party, 5. Eliminate war, 6. Eliminate injustice, 7. Make yourself the richest and most powerful person in the universe.

Nature has the tendency to want to equilibrize situations. Having wished for any of the above, it wil come right back, i.e. not logical. Most humans are quite selfish.  Smile

Limitations on wishes? Some genie... :-/

More than likely I'd be selfish. Hmm, the universe is kind of big, who knows what I wish for the universe may throw off the balance...

But I do not care much for the universe, I wish I could relive a moment in my past once more.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
