"It's just a ride" can't get that out of my head...
Alright so if it is just a ride, but you wake up tomorrow with the power to destroy and rebuild the ride in whatever way you wanted to. It just
wouldn't be the same as getting on a ride you've never seen before, you couldn't have as much fun on it, as pikypiky said "it could never be
perfected to my liking", You could build your own thrills ups and downs but as far as a ride would go it'd be boring because you'd know when all
the exciting bits are coming up. You'd never get off the ride because you'd never be satisfied with it because you'd know you can do more. The
other people on the ride will be having fun(or not as the case may be) so you could never relate to them.
Absolute power, isolates absolutely I'm beginning to think

Hmmm, I'm not really saying that the system wouldn't work or that people wouldn't be happy in your utopia, I'm sure that it the breakthroughs in
science would come pouring in and that very fast humans would spread quickly throughout the universe with that kind of team work and motivation. But
it will still leave you alone, you will constantly need to be checking on your creations making sure they don't annihilate themselves accidentally
with new technology, who would allow an accident to destroy their perfect utopia, and then if they reach other planets were there are people with
malicious intent who see earth as a viable resource then you would need to destroy them or change them like you did earth and this will occur at an
exponential rate and in the end with the entire universe single minded and united as 1 You would still need to take constant care of them so they are
not killed by stars collapsing or galaxies imploding and the like,
You said the needs of the few outweigh the many, well when the many is the whole universe (and we're taking absolute power anyway) you would be sick
and tired spiritually of taking care of them, you will be alone you will not understand them, and they certainly wont understand you... Maybe you'd
still look after them for the greater good.
