In order to grasp total world domination?...for the good of mankind that is


- Let just speculate that you own Technology that allows you to
see the world from any angle with certain accuracy:
en.wikipedia.org...

- Lets just speculate that you have access to knowledge, that
will allow you to control an ethnic group:
en.wikipedia.org...

- And Lets just speculate you have total power allowing you to manipulate
the Economy worldwide:
en.wikipedia.org...

How far would you go? how far would a human go in order to grasp this amount of power? should this even be a question?

One is not even a human who grasps these reins of power and uses them in action.
Human beings are not designed for the schemes and incredible ambitions of total control, technologically and spiritually.


How far would they go? Would I go? If I could shake hands and claws with a small grey alien and share my fellow human beings with them in exchange for wicked super-future technology and discrete colonization, and I could ride it out the "tough times" in a underground bunker with semi-immortality wet-orasmic pills and virtual reality the likes of Hassan I Sabbah would've spiked somebody for, then yeah, I would take the deal.

Just because it's impossible to imagine doesn't mean that it's impossible that it exists.

not to grasp it, but merely to comprehend it? i would go beyond human measure, if i were capable.

how far would i go?

as far as i am permitted, if it would help everyone.

how far would a human go in order to grasp this amound of power?

to grasp it, i would go nowhere. to comprehend the truth of it, so as to know my enemy? i would go further than humans can go, if i were capable.



should this even be a question?


that quote, in and of it's self is just priceless.

should this even be a question?

i love that.

at any rate, here is how far i am going, if you care to join me, you are more than welcome to. disregard what does not make too much sense, but see if there are truths in it for you, if not, i understand.

this is how far i am willing to go, to answer your question:

na, i dissagree, humbly mind you. nice avatar.

absolute power does not corrupt absolutley.

not if you just pick it up to analyze it. acknowledge it's properties and it's truth. see it, watch it, observe the truth of it. do all you can do to learn what you can from it.

then, put it back down.

if one could learn the truths of absolute power, and define the corruption of it, then put it back down and walk away from it.. . .

then perhaps they have not been corrupted, but have learned the truth of absolute power and absolute corruption.

and, perhaps simply knowing the truth of absolute power and absolute corruption, then would make you immune to it effects.

just, perhaps.

If it was for the good of Mankind, I would go as far as possible.

If it meant tracking EVERY human being then I would.

If it meant imposing Sanctions on those who break the law, then so be it.

I was always told that if you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to worry about.

Dogs may hate us because we lock them up, but if we didn't, they may injure a small child, simply because it is in their nature.

While I may not agree with the way certain Governments are handling certain situations, I do agree with their original intentions, and that is making this world a place where peace comes at the price of control.

But we only have to be controlled until the negativity is bred and taught out of us.

What would I do to gain control of absolute power to benefit mankind?

Well, just about anything, as long as it did'nt involve killing off 50%+
of the species.

Of course, once the good was done, if it was one thing, I'd destroy it,
however if it was various technologies, they'd be kept seperate and
have limits on who could use them, and how far and in which direction
they'd be developed and used.



Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely...


That's true for the majority of the population, indeed probably for 99%
of the species.

However, for a small amount of individuals, it's not true.

In the case that the numbers were so close, I'd consider many
different variables, and make a decision based on them.




thank you.

You're welcome.

Umm, I supose maybe that it's that I'm being my true self today,
don't know about exotic though.

Hwo as long as 50% make it is pretty harsh but I respect your opinion.

This answer I have heard many times, and even if it goes against my beliefs it makes sense.

Our Own Nature is our own worst enemy!

how far would i go ?

pray you never have to find out


as for killing off 50 % of the planet ,

i would kill off a far bigger % just for the hell off it

thats before i setlle grudges , vendettas , petty zenophobic hatreds [ the french ] and every slieght real or imagined [ yes i have a list ]

one step past how far everyone thought they would let me, but only if it were to grast what total world domination could mean, not to obtain it or use it for personnel gain.

Total world domination and helping mankind seem to me to be mutually exclusive.

When in world history have mega-powers ever helped mankind? The more powerful the entity, the more death and destruction has been the result. It goes to the heart of human nature. If your nature is to help people, you're going to be too busy helping all the needy around you to assume world domination; and if you're so driven as to be able to achieve world domination, you are very unlikely to be trying to help folks, technology not withstanding.

It seems to me that the technology you site is very quickly leading to a world domination, and I find it highly unlikely that it is going to benefit mankind as a whole, but rather lead to the worst tyranny ever.
