Actually, no. It has very easy to have power well in excess of your 
comprehension. You don't have to look very far to find examples, Leifr. 

Besides, if YOU don't know everything, how can you be sure I don't 
already control it.  8^)

Now, now, Henry. Surely, knowledge and power are separable quantities. Of 
course, if you accept the paradigm that "Knowledge is power", then your 
assertion is actually backward--omnipotence is an incidental byproduct of 
omniscience...oohhh...that would be Leifr's basic assumption.

I still think knowledge and power are separate. I can never seem to find 
them in the same quantity, in the same place, at the same time...or maybe 
that should be "sufficient quantity".
