Well, I thought, I'd probably conquer the world, establishing a universal regime of peace, justice and tolerance, and careers open to talents. Then I'd weed out the human genome, removing all lethal recessives, and maxing out intelligence, fitness, good teeth and attractive noses.
I'd develop an ftl drive, and lead the human race away from Earth to explore the cosmos. I'd stop those damned vacuum fluctuations—new universes are all well and good, but NIMBY, if you know what I mean—and fix the Boltzmann brain problem.
After a few more inventions the world badly needs—a custard pie with a bottom crust that doesn't get soggy; an inexpensive PC on which impoverished children all over the world could play BioShock; Siamese with a proper fear of heights—I would create a time machine, return the early 1960s, and propose marriage to Mary Tyler Moore.
Somehow, I don't think these are exactly what Robert Schuller had in mind. People who say things like that rarely think them through.
meaning: accumulate, involve
累加 == ruika == (noun) acceleration, progressive increase
Bottom radical is 'thread' (糸). Top
radical is 'field' (田), which here acts phonetically to express 'bind'. The original meaning
of 'bind with
thread' led to 'bring together', and eventually to meanings such as 'accumulate'. Henshall
suggests as a mnemonic:
'Threads accumulate in field.'
