My best wishes to you. I know a guy (we call him Flaco), and he's had brain cancer for over 20 years now, and he's not all that slowed down by it at
all, so it's not necessarily a death sentence. Here's a youtube link to a story about him Flaco
and the Snake
and he's in the video clip. I shot this in 2009, and he'd had it diagnosed by the VA since 1989 at that point. Just letting you
know that there's someone out there who's been managing it pretty well, since most of us like to know that the odds can be beat.
On the subject of life and death, I have a somewhat unique take on it, and the truth is that I can prove (via extrapolating what we can know from the
wealth of stuff that we already know) that what I believe to be true is probably very close to being true, if not completely true. I have a new book
out on the subject of human existence, and will link you to it if you feel like it. That said, this is what I've found to be the truth about life and
When your mom and dad launched your corporeal development, you existed for 9 months within the placenta that your mom's body provided. During that
time, your corporeal system developed and achieved viability, and when that was done, you were forced from that confine into the big cold bright-harsh
world. The eviction process wasn't fun, and it's a good thing we don't remember it. That said, it was time to leave, and as you've grown and
become more and more independent, you can see the reason why you had to leave that snug little space. Besides, its a lot more interesting out here -
even if it's a bit more dramatic than some would prefer.
Over the average human life span, the corporeal brain does a lot of thinking, emoting, reacting, responding; and as it does, this information (all the
Intellect being configured and launched into active existence by the brain) gathers in intimate association with its "kind". I prefer to think of
each unit as a burst of Intellect, and these bursts gather with all the other bursts from the same human brain (or author) to form an intelligent and
consciously aware informational being. This being is the true human being, and this development process (the gathering of these bursts - kind of like
how your cells gathered while the human is a fetus) is the 2nd gestational stage of the overall development of a human being.
When this 2nd phase of gestational development ends, the corporeal placenta (the body and its brain) is discarded by the human being that has been
under development for however many years, and it is finally born. The truth is that the human being is a dynamic, contemplative informational being,
and being that information is eternal (once it has come into physical existence as a result of either occurrence of authored generation) the human
being is eternal.
Oh, and as for what to expect - all the busy-bodies that lived here on Earth (and on other planets) are still being busy-bodies as informational
beings. People don't change. So, when you are finally born as a fully viable human being, there will likely be someone or someones to show you the
ropes. They've been there a long time, and by now they have it all organized and properly labeled.
You've never lived before, and as soon as you are born, you'll feel as if you just discovered what it is to be alive for the first time. I
understand that it's pretty wonderful. Personally, I can't wait.
