sorry if im intruding on yours and blackhammer's discussion, but i felt like repsonding.Originally Posted by SamIam
with that scenerio, doesnt that apply to a god? so if what you are saying is God (entity being ominpotent and immortal) cannot do anything? so doesnt that mean that if this diadem applys that god simply creates and does not the ability to preserve or destroy or even intervene? sorry if i misunderstood or if that doesnt apply to gods, but i found that interesting.
also, that inverse proportion, seems to be missing something. if you are an adult, dont you have just as many things to choose from, and thus if you get over social expectations then you can choose those choices AND thrive with them
example, a seven year old could chose to drop out of school get on a greyhound bus and choose to live in the middle of alaska.but could a seven year old really thrive doing all those things?
doubt it, but an adult can because of the necessary experiences and ways of surviving and chosing. but would an adult really drop his/her career, sell all belongings to go live in the wilderness? doubt it since social expectations deem its unreasonable, irrational, and unproductive.
i think, the I wants, i cans and the I SHOULDs especially are contrived off of social expectiations.
