When You Say "I Can Influence.." You Mean "conservation Laws Can

influence..", because you brain is governed by conservation laws exactly the same as falling rock does. Why does a rock falling distance h always have velocity sqrt(2gh)? Well, because energy conservatiol law demands that: from equation of energy conservation mv2/2=mgh you get (as a by-product) the "natural law of free fall velocity" so to speak: v=sqrt(2gh). And because it should be valid for ANY part of rock's trajectory (= for any h), then you may say that symmetry of time (=energy conservation law) allows only certain behavior for rock (=governs its motion).

Therefore regardless what you do, you behavior is governed by math. You simply CAN NOT do what math does not allow you to regardless all your will (say, walk over water, stop Sun from moving across sky or blow you brain and then resurrect back. Same with God - he HAS to obey all natural laws, thus be very limited in his abilities (say, can not travel superluminally to save many distant civilisations from blowing their Trade Centers). Or even support Trade Center frame from collapsing when math of softening hot steel dictates that "it is time to fall".
