Mortals aren't meant to comprehend the secrets of the universe.
We can't name colors we're incapable of perceiving. We can't picture creatures that exist beyond the realm of our imaginations. And most of all, we can never grasp the magnitude of Shaggy's true power.
For many decades, we have falsely believed that Shaggy was just a normal, mystery-solving teen with a love for all things green. Sure, we knew he had the power to talk to dogs, but we assumed this was just a side effect of the copious amounts of weed Shaggy consumed. As it turns out, our perception of Shaggy was a false reality, possibly pushed by Shaggy himself to help our primate brains become accustomed to his glory.
Now, at last, Shaggy has revealed himself.
Shaggy has achieved Ultra Instinct. The concept, introduced by the anime Dragon Ball Super, is a state of extreme power and awareness that places one amongst the strongest entities in the universe. But unlike Goku, who can only wield the power of Ultra Instinct for minutes, Shaggy has basked in it for eternity. The extent of his power is beyond anything we've ever seen. To truly know Shaggy would surely melt our brains.
To give you an idea, this video, the first known footage of Shaggy's Ultra Instinct state, depicts him at barely 0.1% of his full power.

Only one human has ever been allowed to wield the power of Shaggy. Actor Matthew Lillard was briefly imbued with Shaggy's energy in order to accurately portray the mighty warrior in the 2002 Scooby-Doo movie. Various behind-the-scenes interviews have recently brought to light Lillard's experiences interacting with an ancient god.
Lillard recounted how many of the snags typically encountered during Hollywood shoots were superseded by his struggle to handle Shaggy's massive power. Here, Illard is pictured transferring a tiny portion of Shaggy's aura into a baby.
The rest of the cast constantly needed to work around the incomprehensible reality of Shaggy as well.
Luckily, most of them survived with minimal lasting damage.
The revelation of Shaggy's true identity has been picked up by adherents who have formed a worship community on Reddit to spread the good word. Over 75,000 apostles have also been attempting to get Shaggy inducted into Mortal Kombat 11, where he will inevitably feast on the blood of lesser combatants.
With minds as small as ours, it's hard to gauge what surprises Shaggy holds for us in the future. Even harder is the realization that Shaggy can change that future at any time he sees fit.
But while we may not be able to grasp Shaggy's power, the least we can do is spread the message: Shaggy is our new god, and we must either bow to him or face his unknowable wrath.

Animation is lame and live-action is awesome.
Everybody loves Disney live-action remakes.
In a world plagued by racism, disease, and a seemingly endless bounty of spiraling misfortune, at least we can all agree that Disney knocks it out of the park every time they dredge up an old, animated movie for a live-action makeover because cartoons are for babies.
Sure, some of us thought the original Beauty and the Beast was fine, but could lame, 2D Belle ever hold a candle to 3D Emma Watson? And yeah, the original Lion King was okay, I guess, but there's nobody in the world who preferred cartoon Scar's rendition of "Be Prepared" to the incredible feat of getting a real lion to sing it in the live-action remake.
Being a Disney fan can be hard sometimes, as you have fond memories of beloved childhood movies but also don't want people to make fun of you for liking cartoons. That's why, out of all the corporations in the world, Disney is undoubtedly the most selfless, willing to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to bring their old, outdated movies into the modern age—all for the fans.
After Halle Berry walked back her consideration of playing a transgender character, we look back at how Hollywood has repeatedly fumbled trans representation.
Halle Berry has made headlines this week after turning down a role in which, had she gone through with production, would have represented a transgender man.
Berry, an Academy Award-winning actress known for roles in films like Monster's Ball, Catwoman, and Gothika, took to Twitter Monday night to apologize for considering the role. "Over the weekend I had the opportunity to discuss my consideration of an upcoming role as a transgender man, and I"d like to apologize for those remarks," Berry wrote. "As a cisgender woman, I now understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories."
The post continued: "I am grateful for the guidance and critical conversation over the past few days and I will continue to listen, educate and learn from this mistake. I vow to be an ally in using my voice to promote better representation on-screen, both in front of and behind the camera."
