“You want to know what Heaven feels like? Try being God.”


The power of creation is the most mystical and beautiful one there is. It’s so simple yet so complex. One moment there is nothing and the other it all makes sense.

I wonder why it is so elusive. Maybe it’s because it is also a big responsibility. Immediately, you start thinking of SpidermanTM, “With great power, comes great responsibility.”

Are the powerful always responsible? It’s what everybody is trying to do. Become powerful. Everything that anybody does is to gain some sort of advantage, a small piece of authority over everybody else. However, is everybody worthy of it? Is it alright to be able to scare innocent people away from doing something entirely harmless just because you don’t think it is “decent”?

Talks about power and responsibility are always around. Everybody has an opinion. It’s a good thing to discuss and hopefully someday, we will come to a solution. But what till then? Are we ready to have so many Gods roaming amongst us, bashing what they don’t like, ripping out things that displease them?

Are we ready?
