Wow, I'm shocked by how many people think that perhaps that is the truth of it. Whilst I agree that the possibility must be explored (how else would
you find the truth), I don't think it to be so.
If THIS really was all there was to life, then would there be a point to living? If after this there was seriously nothing, then I would have no
reason to continue living, because whilst I may make a difference to future generations, I can not make a difference for me. It's a little bit
selfish I guess, but if this was all there was, then no one else would have a point for living either, and so it's not like it would affect them.
However, my thoughts are now turning to the other extreme which is almost equally unbelievable. My current going theory is that we are all God. I
don't mean gods, I mean God - as in just one. How is this possible? Well, assuming that the soul is unrestrained by time, then a soul could live my
life, and then go BACK in time and live my father's life! I could then go forward and live my granddaughter's life. If that were true, then it's
actually possible that there is in fact only ONE soul that just living every life to experience life in all its possibilities. In that sense then,
perhaps we are God, living out every life so that we can understand what it means to be alive (and to help with that, it's not just every life, but
every way of those live's being lived - and so living "alternate" lives in alternate universes where different decisions are made).
This doesn't mean you need to be peaceful to your neighbour, nor should you not kill animals - for they're living their lives and your living your
life. You're still in control, but it is a natural part of your life to hunt. Heck, it would even mean that God would have lived the life of Hitler -
that we have lived, or will live, the life of Hitler.
