Random fact not directly related to the ramble--I still sorta associate myself with being a god. But if someone asked me if I thought I was one, the answer would be "Nobutyes". Why?

When it comes to here, *points to everything around me*, I know better than to think myself a god. I'm mortal. I'm human. I don't have the hubris to think that I am a god. I am a frail, fragile being who could easily die at any moment. I might be an INFLUENTIAL human, but I am just that--human. I am not divine in any matter at all.

When it comes to here, *points to my brain*, ohhhhhhh, yes. I am a god. In the physical world I occupate, I am just a man. But in my own mental domain, I can control everything. In the flow of a story, I dictate what ultimately happens. I see the characters I create as people, and as their creator, I am their god. They have free will of their own, and feel like real people...but I can still influence them, subtly directing them.

In other words, in my own mental domain, I do exactly what I talk about in this ramble. The characters have the power of choice. That's theirs and theirs alone. They have minds of their own, a Fate to choose, a fate that they dictate. But as the person telling the story, I still know what WILL happen. They have choices, but I know which one they'll actually pick. That's because I control their ultimate Destinies, as their own god.

Which kinda reminds me, I've got plans to maybe write a sixth ramble, tied into this fourth ramble, that deals with the subject of the universe. I won't spoil anything, but basically, my take on the universe is that it's quite similar to a video game. Think of your choices as being actions you can take as a player, and of God being the one who created the game and dictates the fundamentals of the world along with what your choices actually do.
