If not a “divine comedy”, it was at least a “divine joke”.
Immortal was not “contemporous” with omnipotent; that was the rub.
That made a Hell of a lot of difference.
Perhaps the difference between “divine” and “infernal” although the reality, as with most things, was somewhere in between.
It kept one on one’s toes though; omnipotent not being synonymous with omniscient.
