Manusia Itu Memiliki Batas

apa definisi batas?
menurut Kamus Besar Bahasa Indonesia :

batas (ba.tas)
nomina (n)

    garis (sisi) yg menjadi perhinggaan suatu bidang (ruang, daerah, dsb); pemisah antara dua bidang (ruang, daerah, dsb); sempadan (nomina)
    mana ~ kebun ini?; sungai ini menjadi ~ Provinsi Jawa Barat dan Jawa Tengah;
    sumber: kbbi3
    ketentuan yg tidak boleh dilampaui (nomina)
    pembentukan kabinet diberi ~ waktu seminggu; tindakan itu dianggap orang telah melampaui ~ kekuasaannya;
    sumber: kbbi3
    perhinggaan (nomina)
    air sungai itu tidak dalam, hanya sampai ~ lutut;
    sumber: kbbi3

contoh kasusnya adalah perubahan pola pikir pada salah satu karakter pada film watchmen (2009) yaitu Doctor Manhattan yang pada film itu Doctor Manhattan berubah pola pikir dari pola pikir manusia ke pola pikir keabadian atau mendekati pola pikir ketuhanan, pola pikirnya berubah menjadi demikian itu karena formnya sudah bukan dalam bentuk manusia seperti manusia pada umumnya, juga karena life span atau umurnya yang berubah menjadi abadi (immortal) dan pola pikirnya itu berubah menjadi tidak peduli kepada manusia karena perangai manusia sendiri dan diapun berkata

"I can change almost anything...but I can't change human nature."

siapa sih Doctor Manhattan?

Dr. Jonathan "Jon" Osterman is a physicist who was transformed into a blue-skinned god-like being after he was disintegrated in an Intrinsic Field Subtractor in 1959. He had returned to the chamber to retrieve his girlfriend's watch (which he had repaired), and was accidentally locked inside when the Subtractor started automatically. Jon was blown into atoms, with nothing left of his body. Within a few months, his disembodied consciousness managed to reconstruct a physical body for itself. Following his reanimation, he is immediately pressed into service by the United States government, which gives him the name Doctor Manhattan, after the Manhattan Project. He is the only character in the story that possesses actual superpowers. Though he dabbles briefly in crime-fighting, his greatest influence is to grant the U.S. a strategic advantage over the Soviet Union during the Cold War, with his most significant action taking place after he is personally asked by President Richard Nixon to intervene in the Vietnam War, leading to an unqualified victory for the U.S. with the defeat of North Vietnam and the Vietcong, preventing the collapse of the Saigon government. Since he works for the U.S. government, he is exempt from the provisions of the Keene Act, but spends much of his time doing advanced technology research and development, and physics research. He is single handedly responsible for the shift to electric-powered vehicles (by synthesizing the needed elements and chemicals himself) and Veidt credits him with causing a huge leap forward in myriad areas of science and technology. As a result, the technology of the alternative 1985 of the Watchmen universe is far more advanced. After the death of his father in 1969, he does not conceal his birth name and is referenced as "Jon" or "Dr. Osterman".

Doctor Manhattan was based on Charlton's Captain Atom, who in Moore's original proposal was surrounded by the shadow of nuclear threat. However, the writer found he could do more with Manhattan as a "kind of a quantum super-hero" than he ever could have with Captain Atom. Moore sought to delve into nuclear physics and quantum physics in constructing the character of Dr. Manhattan. The writer believed that a character living in a quantum universe would not perceive time with a linear perspective, which would influence the character's perception of human affairs. Moore also wanted to avoid creating an emotionless character like Spock from Star Trek, so he sought for Dr. Manhattan to retain "human habits" and to grow away from them and humanity in general. Gibbons had created the blue character Rogue Trooper, and explained he reused the blue skin motif for Doctor Manhattan as it resembles skin tonally, but has a different hue. Moore incorporated the color into the story, and Gibbons noted the rest of the comic's color scheme made Manhattan unique. The blue skin color is explained as being a result of Cherenkov radiation.[citation needed] Moore recalled that he was unsure if DC would allow the creators to depict the character as fully nude, which partially influenced how they portrayed the character. Gibbons wanted to tastefully depict Manhattan's nudity, selecting carefully when full frontal shots would occur and giving him "understated" genitals — like a classical sculpture — so the reader would not initially notice it.Dr. Manhattan's forehead is marked with the atomic structure of hydrogen, which he himself put on, declining a helmet with the atom symbol.

His powers include superhuman strength, telekinesis, teleportation, control over matter at a subatomic level, and near-total clairvoyance. He perceives the past, present and future as happening simultaneously, but states that he cannot act on that knowledge since his own actions and reactions to events (as is reality itself) are predetermined. His ability to see the future can be blocked by a surge of tachyons, such as that released when Ozymandias puts the final step of his plan into action.

In the Watchmen film, Doctor Manhattan is a CGI character modeled after Greg Plitt with voice, motion capture, and facial performance provided by Billy Crudup.

well, batas itu memang dibuat karena manusia memiliki banyak batasan, beberapa diantaranya adalah batasan kemampuan dan batasan life span (rentang waktu hidup / umur), contohnya ada orang yang mengatakan bahwa :

"sebenarnya sabar itu tidak ada batasnya, tetapi manusialah yang membuatnya tebatas"

saya setuju dengan kalimat diatas karena memang batas itu dibuat untuk tujuan - tujuan tertentu, andaikan manusia tidak mempunyai batas (GOD LIKE, immortal, maha segalanya) maka tidak akan ada permasalahan batas.
