If You've Got the Power

I love the blogging cabal. I really do.

Today, I had this conversation with the Helpful Deity after reading a fantasy novel which had me lusting for power.

HD:  You will have the power of your fantasies. It will be horrible.
Myself: Horrible? [horror] (Gulp!)
HD:  Terrifying. Once one has power, you end up using it in ways that you do not want for once power arises a counter force arises as well.
Myself: Terrifying? (Gulp!)
HD: It won't be as bad as you've been through [but it is of all together different quality] Now that you have power, you should use it.

So then I read Faust's post here. If you read down far enough, he says almost the exact same thing. I love it when that sort of thing happens.

P.S. If you haven't read the Black Swan article over at Rune Soup, follow this link. An interesting thought is presented.

Oddly enough, I'm dealing with something that fits the HD's description really well at the moment. Well, a moment ago.
