Capable of it, too, immortal and creative beyond measure, being pure creative force, pure soul of humanity. Defined not by the body and its urges, but by the volatile, divine urges of the mind. It is that which makes us human, this creative capacity. This is why we feel most happy when interacting, when building, making from nothing. This is the gods' seed in all of us, capacity to make from nothing. With words, with hands, with thought. No wonder dictators abound; once you have the power to define the world around you, you can easily mistake yourself for God.
