what if you were the omega man?

In The Omega Man, Neville (played by Charlton Heston) is presumably the last man on earth, defending himself against vampires at night. Otherwise, he does whatever he wants during the day.

What if you were the omega man? What if the world were your oyster? What if nothing were at stake? What if there were no reason to do anything? What if there were no audience? What would you do to pass the time? Write songs? Paint? Play chess with yourself?

Answer these questions honestly, and you reveal your authentic creative interests. Then ask yourself:

What if the world is already your oyster? What if nothing is at stake? What if you already have no reason to do anything? What if an audience is unnecessary?

Then what would you do to pass the time? And why aren’t you doing it?
