[QUESTION] What would you be in your perfect world?

For example, if you had the chance to make the world perfect, what position would you put yourself in? The king/queen? The peasant? The law enforcer? What?

    I would be the one with the ladies.

  2. 2 The Archer

    I’d posses omnipotent power, and rule all humanity and have them serve under my ruling! Mowahahahahaha!

    But seriously.. I’d be a writer.. educating others and enlightening the world.. Knowledge is freedom.

  3. 3 Amethyst

    Correction: the chubby ladies;p

    The Archer
    Lol, not far from what I expected. Just kidding;p

    Knowledge is definitely freedom, but the world doesn’t want to be enlightened at times.

    Why not be a writer in this world?;)

    Tawni adri you like variety..

    I prefer not to reply to your comment:)

    A Journal Entry

  22. 22 Âme

    Can you please explain the word “Perfect” ?

    Isn’t it relative ?

    Give us a benchmark please.

    ~ Soul

  23. 23 Grey

    I’d rather be batman ….

  24. 24 Amethyst

    Hehe, souds a bit too superhero-ish;p

    I can’t.

    Yes, it is relative. There is no benchmark, but if you like, you could use Plato’s The Republic. It’s what inspired this post.

    Lol, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want that;p

  25. 25 Coconut

    In my perfect world I’d be the Da vinci ( artist, scientest, inventor).

  26. 26 Amethyst

  28. 28 Don Juan

    Easy come, Easy Go

    beside I’m gonna be a good president 🙂

  29. 29 Ruby Woo

    I don’t want to rule the perfect world. Making a world perfect is too hard.
    In my perfect worls, I want to own an animal reservation in Kuwait. Where animals have their rights. I know too cheesy but I want that!

  30. 30 Diddlina

    An author..they live even when they’re gone

    Kila Ma6goog
    Wishful sinking sounds good to me:)

    Don Juan
    Again, it’s your world. You can have no easy come easy go.

    Ruby Woo
    Very humane:)

    So do murderers, politicians, philosophers, etc.

    e.g. Lizzie Borden, Abraham Lincoln, Plato..

    Is it the power of words?


  32. 32 Don Juan

    if I was born as a king ,, how am I going to feel what the peasants and labours are going through ??

    but if it’s up to me I don’t want to be a king ,, R2ees Et7ad Kort El Qadam + El Lajna El Olombia El Asywia is enough for me ;p

  33. 33 Amethyst

    Don Juan
    You don’t need to.

    It’s your world. You can be whatever you want to be.

    I can tell you haven’t settled on one thing.

  34. 34 Âme

    I would be a king, whose interests would be the interests of his subjects.

    A counsel would be formed of wise men, those who shall be called guardians and whose wisdom will be to serve the cause of overall justice and peace.

    Each society at different locations would compromise of such wise men and women, whose wisdom not only serves the universal cause but also local causes.

    There would be no perfect world, yet, an undying effort would be made on behalf of the kings to come and counsel guardians.

    ~ Soul

  35. 35 Amethyst

    Well thought out, but not everyone can be wise. So, what if the societies had men and women who weren’t wise?

  36. 36 Âme

    We would make some then.

    Spreading knowledge of the wise would be on the the primary concerns of the king.

    ~ Soul

  37. 37 Âme

    **…would be one of the primary concerns…**

    ~ Soul

  38. 38 Amethyst

    Wouldn’t it cause too much uniformity?

  39. 39 Âme

    No, it wouldn’t.

    Because the wisdom of one region would be specific to that region, however, the souls of the causes would retain their respective meanings.

    ~ Soul

  40. 40 Amethyst

    What about uniformity within a region/community?

  41. 41 Âme

    Since it is a community, the wisdom of the community is collective.

    Such a community would always be non-uniform by its nature.

    However, the guardians wisdom would try to cater to such non-uniformity.

    Ergo, the trying for perfection.

    ~ Soul

  42. 42 Amethyst

    I certainly wouldn’t want to live in such a world, but it’s all yours:)

  43. 43 Âme

    May i dare to ask, why you wouldnt want to live in such a world ?

    ~ Soul

  44. 44 Sou


  45. 45 Amethyst

    Because I believe in each person having their own causes, and those causes would serve in the path to perfection in one way or another.

    Plus, uniformity in ANYTHING annoys me:)

    Lol! I know!;p

  46. 46 Âme

    The individual has all the freedom to express his thoughts, reasons and explanation to causes.

    There should be a reference point which might be relative, however, its existence is important.

    Individuals make the community and thus are the building blocks.

    About the uniformity, it is not a practical term when considering societies.

    There would be no uniformity. However, having reference points as discussed above becomes important.

    If there were no reference points and individuals when left without honing their thoughts with reference points and then judging for themselves, how they could contribute at a larger level for the community…there would be chaos.

    ~ Soul

  47. 47 Amethyst

    I like the world I live in now. It might not totally match the reality of the whole world, but my world seems perfect enough.

    There is no reference point, and there is a good kind of chaos. People learn from cause and effect.

    If I lived in your perfect world, I’d be exiled by the wise guardians;p

  48. 48 Âme

    No you wouldn’t be exiled.

    Since my world is the world what is it right now. (The only difference is there is uni-position of a king)

    You are already living in it.

    However, the wise guardians are not seen, they are a very small minority.

    ~ Soul

  49. 49 Amethyst

    This world isn’t striving for perfection as a whole. Each nation is doing it separately to benefit themselves.

    The small minority of guardians isn’t really making a difference if they can’t be seen.

  50. 50 Âme

    Yes it is.

    The definition of perfection is on line.

    The minority still counts.

    ~ Soul

  51. 51 Amethyst

    It counts, but the difference it makes needs to be bigger..

  52. 52 Âme

    Open your eyes and ears.

    ~ Soul

  53. 53 Amethyst

    They’ve been open for quite a while, now..

  54. 54 Âme

    Probably you should be looking and hearing somewhere else.

    ~ Soul

  56. 56 ĐǻñĎõøðñ

    id be a law enforcer with a shot gun and the right to shoot anyone who smokes and people who drive like idiots! (no offence to either, they just piss me off)

    and maybe add an extra category or two to that eg: alien head 7ijab people, mna8aba woman with the tightest 3abaya, guys who annoy girls everywhere, guys who wear boxers, the vast majority of our MPs etc etc etc

  57. 57 Amethyst

    The population would definitely decrease.

    Diversity is good..

  58. 58 ĐǻñĎõøðñ

    diversity is good when everyone knows and respects their limits, allowing the community to live inpeace and harmony

    diversity is NOT good when everyone thinks theyre right and swalef if youre not with me then youre against me

    ps: the world is overpopulated anyway 😉

  59. 59 Amethyst

    You’re contradicting yourself:)

    You think you’re right in cutting out:

    “alien head 7ijab people, mna8aba woman with the tightest 3abaya, guys who annoy girls everywhere, guys who wear boxers, the vast majority of our MPs etc etc etc”

    The munaqaba wearing a tight 3abaya thinks she is right, but she is not preaching that everyone else dresses similarly.

    Are these people going against you?

  60. 60 ĐǻñĎõøðñ

    thats exactly my point!!
    she does go around saying ena the person eli dresses like that is katha o katha o katha
    im okay with it, she can wear watever she damn well pleases, bs when she goes around saying choofay hathy shino labsa o entay laish mo m7ajba o look at how short her skirt is

    thats when it gets on my nerves!! you cant preach about something if you’re doing it yourself if you know what i mean 🙂

  61. 61 Amethyst

    Let me emphasize what I said earlier:

    The munaqaba wearing a tight 3abaya thinks she is right, but she is not preaching that everyone else dresses similarly.

    Then, you should argue against hypocrites or narrow-minded people rather than those who dress or act in certain ways.

  62. 62 ĐǻñĎõøðñ

    fair enough 🙂
    hypocrites it is 🙂
    i suppose thats what i was thinking of at the back of my head, but i apologize cz i didnt make it very clear 🙂

  63. 63 Amethyst

    No problem.

  64. 64 Diddlina

    You are right. but we’ve got a choice whether to write for inspiration or destruction..
    I remembered something from ” the thirteenth tale ” by Diane Setterfield ” :
    (People disappear when they die.Their voice,their laughter,the warmth of their breath.Their flesh.Eventually their bones. All living memory of them ceases. This is both dreadful and natural.Yet for some there is an exception to this annihilation.For in the books they write they continue to exist.We can rediscover them. Their humour,their tone of voice,their moods.Through the written word they can anger you or make you happy.They can comfort you.They can perplex you.They can alter you.All this,even though they are dead.Like flies in amber,like corpses frozen in ice,that which according to the law of nature should pass away is,by the miracle of ink on paper,preserved. It is a kind of magice ).
    Yes words are very powerful =)

  65. 65 Amethyst

    You’ll be remembered either way:)

  66. 66 F.

    You’ve been reading “The Republic” haven’t you…?!

    Well, I guess I’d be a sage…a teacher…the wise old lady that lives down the street.


  67. 67 Amethyst


    Hehe, that I didn’t expect!;p

    Miss you;*
