You are a member of a world of super-beings. Not everyone wants to be a god but those who do typically enroll at a Godiversity. They take classes in all sorts of things such as Ethics, Multi-dimensional Thinking, Alternative Physics and Creatorship.
You have decided to set up a business to help aspiring god-students pass their courses.
A desperate student, YeeHaw!, has just landed in your office. His term-assignment for "Creation 101" is due to be handed in in a mere 10,000 years. He has already been running his creation for 90,000 years so it is well under way. You glance over his write-up so far and have a peek at his creation in action.
Here's one problem you noticed.
Student Y! neglected to specify all the laws of physics in advance. This omission led to one scientist discovering that light is made up of particles and another finding that light consists of waves. Sorting that out so that they were both right was a bit of a headache. You had to come up with a solution and implement it in the World's physics. You had to make it plausible enough that the World's future scientists would be able discover it and make a feasible theory about it. Problem solved.
What other mistakes would a typical student make and how can you fix them?
Each answer should have the following sections:
- A brief description of the nature of the student's oversight.
- A brief explanation of why this poses a problem
- Bare bones of the proposed solution.
- A short discussion of why it works and of any issues that might need to be addressed.
