Regarding item 17
I have long considered the question: When did persons with very special attributes recognize that they were REALLY special, and might have a significant impact? How did such realizations effect their lives?

This question is always coupled with the studies of delusions of grandeur and the pathological arrogance of self importance among so many.

How many people of importance in history are known only because of circumstance - being at the right place at the right time - and not because of anything unique that they contributed?

Can we ever know of how many persons existed with significant potentials to contribute, but who were not at the right place at the right time, or were unable to attract others to help seaf their ideas or innovations?

Regarding item 8
This is now a favorite topic of alternative universe speculation. In its most radical version, every moment is a moment of choice and causes branching in the network of multiple universes.

This also has generated new What if? fiction. What if Hitler had been assassinated? What if JFK had not been assassinated?

What do the unique traits of people in power contribute to the consequences of their reign, vs how much are they mere conditioned tools of their position?

Are individuals a total product of the DNA and environment, or to what extent does creative initiative (with no causal source) play in the life of each person?
