"Oh, well. I can't say I will change my plans because of you either, but it is tempting to the point where I almost regret not staying in Rio and then meeting you at a later date. Almost, I am very glad to have met you and I have no idea how we would've found Thor."

"Why do you regret that? Presumably if it's that tempting it's because it's not clear it's not a good idea...?"

Permalink

"I don't regret it. It's a figure of speech. But while meeting you earlier has the extremely great benefit of spending more time with you, I will have to factor strongly missing you while we are away in different colleges when I am picking which one to choose."

Permalink

"Maybe we should figure out how to teleport."

Permalink

"I like any solution that solves our problems and also gets us rich."

Permalink

"Or we could just try to get into the same universities, I don't expect our judgment on which are best to be substantially different."

Permalink

"We could, in a sense it isn't that much of a change of plans if you consider that 'going to a place where we can find a biokinetic coven mate' was a factor even before we met you. Did you have specific plans?"

Permalink

"Vague ones, nothing concrete."

Permalink

"My mom could help you advising with that."

Permalink

"Oh?"

Permalink

"She knows a lot of people, who themselves knows a lot of people. I would be extremely surprised if there isn't someone at two steps remove or less that could guide you through the process of planning your entire career if you so wished."

Permalink

"Did you do that?"

Permalink

"No, but my career is less clear and I would've liked more flexibility. If I had your gift I would've gotten mom to call friends that would come up with a career plan titled 'the best way to become the kind of magician that figures out mass-produced immortality'."

Permalink

"Well you could still do it, I'm sure I'm not the first and slash or best biokinetic on Earth."

Permalink

"Well, for certain definitions of 'best' indeed you are not the best biokinetic on Earth. But with my gift I have multiple ways to pursue mass-produced immortality, but there isn't a obviously best one to pick."

Permalink

"Well, presumably your mum's contacts wouldn't just give us the obvious options, we can come up with those ourselves."

Permalink

"They did. A lot of things that you can only really know if you know the places or know people from there, and they did help a lot, but in the sense that I have a notion where I would like to be in say five years, not where I would like to be until I managed to make myself and everyone immortal."

Permalink

"Didn't you just say you could've called on them to get a career plan called 'the best way to become the kind of magician that figures out mass-produced immortality'?"

Permalink

"Well, yes. But without being a biokinetic myself a strict career plan to railroad me into mass immortality is less feasible because it would have branches that depend on things we can't know in advance. If I was a biokinetic I could've had those branches metaphorically pruned until whatever was left with something I could devote more resources to."

Permalink

"You're tempting me again."

Permalink

"I am afraid that exacerbating mass immortality related temptations is a common side-effect of interacting with me. I should've warned you in advance."

Permalink

"Should you and I go find those friends of your mom's and get ourselves such a career plan delineated, then?"

Permalink

"If you insist. I will leave her a message about it then. She and dad are likely to come by next weekend if you prefer to do that in person, they will want to meet you anyway."

Permalink

"Do you think it's not a good idea? If not nowing a good biokinetic was the only thing standing between you and that plan..."

Permalink

"I was kidding, talking about solving the world's problems affects my sense of humor. I think is a great idea!"
