I think acceptance is huge. When we execute a Genius, there is no way we can know all the variables that need to take place to make what we want to happen. And probably, if we did, we would never want to use one. Quoting: Unit3
Maybe I can clarify what I am saying in the post above. Quoting: Unit3
Unit3, please accept my apologies for making you feel misunderstood, especially when my intention was the exact opposite.
I put the word "probably" from your quote in bold to depict that you had already decided that if you "knew all the variables that needed to take place to make what you want to happen", you wouldn't have made that "particular" wish
. Not the Genius in general.
And for that, I tried to show (from my perspective of course) that thinking about the variables (whose number will make you decide to go for this or the other wish), or how you expect the genius to do its job, is exactly what we are not supposed to do. All we have to think of, is the "what" and "why". The "how" leave it to the genius.
But we all must know how to ask "what" and "why" from our previous wishes. What is so special about the genius, that we seem to have a problem with it now (defining point B, that is)?
(That's why I said "we don't know what to do about it").
Your remark is not only legitimate, is common to everyone of us (read Jesse's fear of not losing his precious).
Since I failed to tell what i saw in what you wrote, I will leave it there and maybe come back from another path.
I will try to amuse you though, with another old joke that sometimes reminds me of Chaol.patient:
Doctor, every time I drink tea, I have an ache in my right eye.Doc:
Next time, take out the teaspoon from the mug.
