Nothing exists at all, but you, an immortal entity/consciousness among an infinite nothing with the 'power' to do anything..... so what do you do?

Could be some truth in this

Running this question through my mind, to me the most logical thing to do would ultimately be creating more or less what we have now.
With nothing, you would create something. With no one else, you would create others. Faced with infinity, you create the notion of mortality and forget your immortality so as to not go completely insane
Essentially ending up right where we are now. Every individual, every atom, just another part of a play in an attempt to pass time that never ceases to end. Yet each individual is one and the same, you.
Experiencing every single life separately yet at the same time.

Forever is a long time after all.

I wouldn't do anything. Too lazy and bored to care I guess.

Your question implies that being among nothing else, just me as an individual what would I do? So basically among nothing I'm not only a single being but have  acharacter trait with a personality too. What would I do? Contemplate nothingness and think about who I am :D

Create different worlds, I guess. See how they operate. No point in creating someone to talk to, since you're talking to yourself.

Forget what they told you. You want the truth, follow the money.
In this life, things are much harder than in the afterworld. In this life, you're on your own.--Prince

I'd create a big ol' mess because there would be no one around to complain about it and tell me to clean it up.  Then I'd create pizza.

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

The first thing I would do is put the sign "I am god" above my door, and the second thing is create humans and their bible will be called "the new and concise kitchen unit must have book"
