I am glad that a simple message had changed your life, for a better direction than the one of the past that you had presume will help you reach your
goals. Most telling of this new direction is 'to stand upon the shoes of another person' ( and walk through his/her life) in order to make a judgement
of against or for that person that may be of relevance to our lives.
'The egg' by Andy Weir is an inspired piece, but still only an opinion based message, culled and learnt but 'twisted' by himself from the wisdoms of
our ancient sages, who onced live like us upon Earth. That 'twist' is that we each other are the same person, reliving out our reincarnated lives and
interacting only with ourselves.
This is far from the truths taught by our ancestors.
I can qoute theological cases, from the bible to the buddhist scripts that you are not me nor a reincarnated form of me from a different timeline.
Even the one who discovered or was revealed the cosmological workings of reincarnation - Buddha, make no claims of you and I being the same being
with the same consciousness interacting with ourselves in different timelines.
I can qoute you scientific studies on the evolution of our Universes. It follows Universal laws, some of which are discovered by Man, and many more
yet to be known. But such laws are known to be irreversible, takes on a course of its own, and cannot be reversed.
Perhaps in the theological sense, our Creator has such powers and purposes for reversal as nothing is impossible to Him, but once creation is in
place, it will follow the programme as created and run on its own. Remember that we had been given free will, to determine our own course as well as
Good or bad will be the result of our chosen course, to continue with divine teachers and guides or have a divine intervention for the programme to
be erased. To reverse time would be against the very programme, laws and order that our Creator had written, for chaos will only reign - one simple
reverse change for man will only lead to a pandora box of chaos in the cascading effect of matter re-acting with matter .
Any mortal being - humans or others - would love to have time reversal powers, either for good or even for bad, but it is something that is beyond our
powers for the consequences that it may involve. While we do not have the powers to change the past, we have EVERY POWER to change our future, and it
lays within our conciousness and will to do so, a gift granted by our Creator along with divine teachers and guides to help us along the way...
Thus, we are not ourselves and the same, but each a different being with a different consciousness, gifted by our Creator. We are one, part of the
whole with only common aspirations, the way a hand and a leg, parts of the whole, have same purposes necessary for survival, but different in parts
Andy Weir may have his heart in the right place with his opinion piece, but our opinions must be based upon truths. It is not enough to know, but to
research, find collaborating evidences and form the most logical and rational intelligent critical assesment that we know, and then discuss and debate
it with many others will the truth emerged.
The sooner Andy Weir realizes this, the faster will his and our evolution progresses. To continue on the 'twisted' path will only lead us to remain
where we wrongfully are today, complacent in hand fed directed info from our masters
To those who claimed the OP's thread is a possibility of mental control:-
I will then ask:- Was his message for us to have more empathy a correct course for our human evolution, or a regression?
What is 'civilisation' but a form of mental control as well - for it encourages hetrogenous animal like humans to group together, share resources and
evolve into a better species for their future, beginning with rules and guides for common behaviour so that it may lead to peace if not harmony within
that enclosed space?
Such forms of 'mental control' that you speak derogatively of is at least far more better and a call of higher plane of evolution than the ones such
as 'unchecked greed is good', 'Never leave home without your credit card', ' Iraq has WMD so we must bomb it to kingdom come', etc, etc.
And the 'mental control' from the OP's thread has no control. No gun is pointed at our heads to believe. It's one choice and free will, based on logic
and reason, for us to progress and evolve as one race - different people with differences but to put aside such differences and find the common ground
of aspirations to stand on and evolve together, leaving none behind - muslims, jews, christians, hindus, buddhists, free thinkers, white, black ,
rich, poor, phd, cleaner, tall, short, male, female, etc, etc....
The alternative to such appeal is to live freely, do as we will without a care and concern to another, as we wish, with no direction, to harm and hurt
or not to as we like - a regression back to the animal-like states our cavemen barbarian ancestors once were.....
