     The implication here is derisive, that there is something 'wrong'
with someone who cant win at the game of life.  You leave no room
for people who took on too much limitation to where they cant win
no matter what, or people who are bored with this game and want
to create a new one.

      You seem to have the attitude of 'you made your bed, now you
sleep in it.'  Each being should be free to change his mind about any
game at any time.  No spirit OWES you to stay limited just because
they originally made such a decision.

>Show me a happy person who is looking for PSI powers, and I'll show you someone
>who doesn't try to cheat on the conventional rules of the game by invoking
     Show me a happy person who does not have PSI abilities and I will
show you a hypocrite who cant see the doom that waits around the corner.
I guess you must have loved being a baby and going to school and having
to work and you must also want this to happen again and again for the
next 200 livetimes until the world dies in nuclear holocast.

     You must also enjoy world wars and being drafted, and having to
worry about crime.  This is no criticism of you, but please do not
disparage others for wanting out.

     At the worst they might make the world a safer place with their
PSI powers.  You might not like this if you are really bored and want
a dangerous game, but wont you eventually get sick of this?

     So was I.  But now I am bored of solving boredom with crucifixion.
Time to get back to art.
