A Mighty Spirit occured before your eyes, and gave you a choice between these gifts...;)


Which one did you prefer?


And why?

I voted knowledge.

With knowledge you can obtain all the other options.

I choose knowledge.


I am satisfied with my appearance.
I already have honour and I´m faithful.
Too much wealth ruins the character .
But you cannot have too much knowledge.
Knowledge contains science.
Knowledge is power.

You forgot Health, which IMO is the fundamental prerequisite for all of the above. ;)

Hm, what do you mean with Science?

I guess I have all of the rest though, except wealth (and modesty :-D)

Seriously, I voted Knowledge, Enibas explained it well.

Agreed, health is basical.

I thought about that, but both health and love are fruits of knowledge, the creative power, IMO.

Health may also be achieved through faith, science and beauty...

The model of these 7 is also an ancient model, that implies just these aspects....And it should be 7, not 6 or 8.

Money, money, money! :D That covers power as well since money is power.

I could achieve so much if I were unbelievably rich!! :thumbup :thumbup

Too much knowledge is a bad thing in my opinion. As with everything there needs to be a balance... just look at the problems our information age is currently causing for young people. :( There needs to be some mystery and necessity of faith left for people to feel truly inspired and alive I think. Gaining knowledge means losing innocence... and innocence, to an extent, is a beautiful thing. :) Why bother going on living if there is nothing left to explore or uncover in life? If everything is already known, life would become tedious and mundane...

And anyway, without the wisdom to regulate and prioritise the proposed degree of knowledge a person would go mad I think.

I voted for "Beauty". Not because I think its the most important thing of all, but because you can get other gifts more easier by beauty.

If you are beauty, you can become rich ("High society"..."marry a rich old men" etc.) easier. You can become famous, too. "Ugly" persons become famous only in a negative way. And beautiful persons have it also easier to get into positions of influence and power. A big part of beauty is charisma, and charismatic persons are prefered when it comes to questions of power and influence.

And if you are beauty and rich, you can spend more money for your health and fitness.

So, to put it in a nutshell, a person who is not so beautiful has it very hard to get rich, to become famous, to become powerful and to stay healthy. Our society is somehow sick, and the external looks are more important than the inner, true character. Sad enough, buts its the reality.

You know what they say : the more you have, the more you want. And all I want is more! I always wanna more! :P Eternal dis/uns/atisfied.

I voted power. I would want to have the power to lead my nation to its salvation and thus saving Sweden from its impending doom. Then i would live happily ever after in some remote village, spending my time in the woods and in a cozy cabin, striving towards reclaiming my peace of mind, and the genuine joyfulness and warmth which the multi cultural nightmare has taken away from me.

Knowledge without power leads to despair. I share Patriot Patrik's sentiments above.

Power.

Seems like a few of us are looking for this phenomenon.

Funny really, because I just got a book out from the Library called:

"The Third Reich in Power", by Richard J. Evans.

I believe Power is a Gift of Eternity, given out in Time, through a clear River of Life.

None of them!

All I desire is the power to perform a Jedi Force Choke:

I cannot guarantee that such a power would not be abused...............

but failing that, Knowledge obviously. Knowledge + Jedi Force Choke, I would be a happy man.

I'm sure many people would believe you.

I can see them queuing for a Jedi Force Choke, delivered by OneFrenchSaxon - the best Jedi Force Choker in town.
