At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
If you watch Elementary you know what inspired this question...
What if you could be granted one impossible wish (such as a visit with a deceased relative or a glimpse of the future), but the only way to achieve this would result in permanent debilitating brain damage? Would it be worth it? What if you were dying anyway?
