If you could wish for any 3 things, what would they be? Two conditions: (1) you cannot wish for more wishes or make wishes designed to achieve that end, and (2) you cannot wish for anything that would make you all-powerful.

So, what would you wish for?

1. That technology would develop/be invented at an astronomical rate.
2. That more food, clean water, and basic living necessities were cultivated/gathered and shipped out to those who needed it.
3. My family would acquire $1000000 per individual every week for the rest of their life.

1. Salvation and eternal life for all human beings.
2. The ability to make governments and politicians do anything that I want them to and for civilians to not try to resist such decrees (basically the ability to step in at any point in the paths chosen by civilizations and governments and make them do Y instead of X).
3. ?

You never get what you wish for, you get what you work for.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I believe the number 2 violates his omnipotence restriction
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

This is not, as the OP seems clear, an AMA.

If you know everything that there is to know, there is pretty much nothing that you cannot do, because you would exactly know how to do it.

you were thinking exact what i was. If one knew everything they would know how to destroy realities by just blinking their eyes, with every possibility of doing something, that knowledge would enter their head, thus infinite knowledge equals infinite power.

Invulnerability to age tho would not be omnipotence seeing invunerability to age means one can die of disease, accident, or purposeful death.

Agreed.

Invulnerability to age tho would not be omnipotence seeing invunerability to age means one can die of disease, accident, or purposeful death.

Even immortality isn't omnipotence, since immortals can still be ineffective at doing things.

1. That everyone could live a long, healthy, and happy life.
2. That I could play every piece ever written for the violin.
3. That I could fly. That'd be awesome.
