There is nothing to be charge of with respect to the whole
Plenitude. Everything happens in the plenitude - there's nothing you,
God or anyone else can do about it.

Only parts of the Plenitude have the possibility of someone being able
to change things.

This is one of the themes of my book. As I put it: ``Demigods yes, but
is there room for God?''
