I saw Frozen recently. A Disney princess with ice magic creates castles and monsters and dangerous bolts of ice.
Idle thought: Look at how much that magic diverges from ordinary physics. It’s so powerful.
Except it isn’t powerful. Because anything powerful solves problems that matter.
Building castles from ice? We’re pretty good at building castles and apartments and skyscrapers. Firing dangerous projectiles? We’re pretty good at that, too. And creating monsters? Not actually useful.
You know what is useful? Energy healing a knee in chronic pain, to help people run and exercise and have a better quality of life. Or predicting future events, so you can invest in smart ways. Neither is hollywood-flashy. But both solve problems that are actually worth solving. That’s what power is.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.
