Early episode, "Mind War", where a character becomes, to steal from
Scott Adams, "a godlike being of pure energy". A transition executed by
a bunch of races a billion years before and by the human race a million
years hence. Telepathy and telekinesis are involved, though, with JMS
being coyly evasive as to whether they are wholly reducible to

The million-year-hence scene might be good, for surprise.
