What Type Of World Would Be The Ideal World? by johnydon22(m): 7:22pm On Mar 23
I have heard so many argue that this universe, this world is quite flawed mostly due to the existence of things we may philosophically refer to as Natural evils. Famine, hunger, diseases, dangerous animals, natural disasters, death and what not.

Even though personally i think things we refer to as evil are necessary - Topic for another day.

I'd like to experiment on this a bit, create a hypothetical universe.

Assume you are in the position of an All-powerful entity, you want to create a world, what type of world, what model of world do you imagine right now to be the ideal world?

A world where the major player(s) have and/or are of preferred, desired and/or approved character(s). This is where the world is getting to, after and is said and done, there no more be natural evils, famine, hunger, diseases, dangerous animals, natural disasters, death and whatnot.

The end justifies the means of the necessary evil allowed for this greater good of a better world brought about, where the major player(s) have and/or are of preferred, desired and/or approved character(s). This model and/or type of a world, all along, is the position and vision, of the All-powerful entity, this is what the All-powerful entity is working on and bringing about

It's like saying what's the highest number. Anything cool can be improved, will be improved, must be improved.

Stagnancy seems to hurt the human mind, at least curious ones.


Anyways, beyond the philosophical, a good world will have winged humans. Imagine the possibilities... FLUBBER - Fly without wings.
Neckpains from watching too many aerial fights.. Evolution would probably sort that by giving us some extra shoulder or some weird poo.

No dwarfs in my world, too. I feel so guilty around them, like I owe them height or something.
Got high once with a midget, and couldn't even make a high joke.

And lots of fries, weed , cotton candy, soda.. An no negative side-effects from indulgence...

And lots of sexy ladies.



Ideal for me.... Others might disagree too.. Or call me vain.... I run on veins... grin grin grin grin

I know sheeple don't use brains, so I will try to break it down a little.

The thread will be better without you. Your presence makes it bad. That doesn't mean you should leave.

You can stay. Pigs do enjoy their smell.

Btw, all are welcome to my shrine. It's a happy place. No crying or singing slave songs. It's a really simple place to live in. You're always welcome.

I kind of like the world as it is myself. I think its just about the best possible world one can get unless one wanted it flat. But then, where would you put the oceans, the mountains, Venus, Mars and the Sun? It would be odd if earth were flat as paper, and most likely wouldn't work.

The people though, I'd change. My ideal world is a world that's full of people who use their brains. School would have to be good, of course, with lessons that educate the mind and not indoctrination. If people use their brains, this world would be full of smart people and very close to my ideal.

The world has never remained the same. It keeps changing. An ideal world would be one without pains. Our ever dynamic world can change to such kind of world by the time science discovers what can remove the feeling of pains from every organism in it.

When i say Ideal i don't mean man made things like schools etc.

I'm mostly referring to natural factors as implied, you as the omniscient being would set as a default state

How would a world without religion be better?

And religion is quite man-made doesn't sound like a natural evil, or is it?

This is correct and it is so because that is how character is formed. Exposure to changing elements

Imagine a world without character, it all be meaningless, drab and mundane.

My concern would not be the natural factors since I've created living things imbued with an ability to "be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth".

If my being was Yahwehlike, I'd just send them a better teacher, most likely my own self taught son and other teachers, to teach them to do it better, except, done that already. If only I had more than one son, I'd likely send him now, though I'd prefer if she were a daughter so she can be called my only begotten and teach science (except, already done that too!).

So, the world we live in now is already as good as it can get?

Because a world of infinite second chances sounds like a world with eternal life.

You can't get infinite second chances if you don't have infinite life

And I told you that you were arguing for a world of absolutes which is essentially dead. My conception does not arrive at an absolute end to emotion, desire or appetite.

One in which potential is limited to those things which can only bring forth "pleasant emotions". Not always euphoria but always pleasant no matter how mildly.

Uuuuhm, i am arguing that a world with pain, suffering, desire is necessary. A world without these is meaningless.

I objected to a world of absolutes. I conceive of a world where there is no pain and suffering but not in the absolute sense ie such a world will still have you recoil if your bare foot felt fire while in yours it would not.
