Everyone, in a fit of boredom, will occasionally sit before the "boob tube" and channel surf. However, not everyone who does that has the power to create (or destroy) universes by merely focusing their will.
Enter Tricksy. He might be a god. He might also be incredibly deranged. No one ever said that either of those choices were mutually exclusive.
