- Telepathy: this one is pretty obvious considering how frequently we are unable to read body language. So the ability to read the thoughts of everyone else would more than compensate. If I knew what others were thinking I'd be the most charismatic person around. When others want me to catch on to what they are saying, I can generally appear to be intuitive and somehow understanding. The negative side is that I would try to please a mass crowd if I knew all of their thoughts. Worse than that, I don't know if I am allowed to limit my telepathic abilities to one person at a time; sensory overload would surely take place.
- Possession: oh mind control you devilish power. Like many aspies, I am happiest when I have complete control over my own environment, aligned with my passive aggressive nature. So what better environment control than getting into the mind of someone else and plugging in the thoughts you want. Maybe I wanted that promotion; with possession of the boss' mind, I tell the physical version of myself that the promotion is happening. The quandary with mental possession is this: who controls my mind if I'm controlling that of someone else? Would I be on auto-pilot for those fleeting moments?
- Time manipulation: Freeze time, and I may be able to get things done and look the part of superhero. There are constant distractions for me, and if I can freeze time while being able to manipulate everything around me, I can get everything done in time, and possibly look like the fastest worker ever. I could even cheat on exams or win at Jeopardy...even rig the lottery somehow. However, I could still get mad tired and look like I'm often sleeping.
- Teleportation: Instant transportation, by means presented in Star Trek, would allow more time to enjoy a vacation, or even a quick getaway. I would enjoy the lessened financial burden with such a power, pending any medical bills if your mass ends up leading to bouts of disorientation. The final reason is that my girlfriend is two hours away for the next year, so having that immediate ability would be nice for quality time. However, what if the porting leads me to a spot in the middle of an interstate? We all know that wouldn't end well. Maybe if I landed in a ditch near Route 1 instead if the power forces me to be dropped.
|Batman kept it real.|
At the end, I would come up with the lesson that it is "just so great to be me!" Especially because there is good and bad with each power. However, I don't know if that's the case. I like being me, but I know I'll still desire some supernatural ability when the time calls for it, as long as I don't have to sell my soul for the ability. Still, everyone is a hero to someone, and I guess I can make the best of being an Aspie with my own supernatural abilities.
Maybe that will be a future blog.
