sorry to sound so stupid.edit on 6/21/2012 by aaaiii because: (no reason given)
we're all entitled to our own beliefs. have at it.
the big bang is still a theory despite your vehement defense, and you admit it.
my point is made. thank you very much.
i'm well aware of what a theory is. thank you. i'm a college grad.
I never said god did it and you shouldn't assume that's what I think.
i'm not rabidly religious, but I do recognize an intelligent aspect to the universe. is it god? I don't know.

Walk-ins is a flattering description. Most of us are just walk-ons.

To clarify for those who have never heard the term, a walk in, is a soul (entity) that has commandeered a physical body on our plain of existence. Please feel free to correct my understanding of the term if required.
It has come to my attention that some interference, or some might say, external influence has been apparent through out humanities existence. Some in the past may have called it witch craft, while others have called it "Being Possessed".
At any rate it makes no difference to a person who strongly believes we humans are nothing more than "smart monkeys", only to live one life. But what if we are more. What if we do have a soul that never dies and actually lives forever? Is that the key that unlocks the secret of secrets?
Some have had concerns that I myself are one of these "Walk Ins". But, what if, we all, are walk ins? Spiritual walk ins that decide before we enter the game, what game piece we will be. Well, I'm sure some of the folks would agree with that and add one of the stipulations to the game is that we have all our memories removed before we enter. After all, whats fair is fair.
I understand the gravity and "long shot" mentality this line of thought carries with it. But, supposing this is all true, sooner or later one comes to the realization that we, presently, on the surface of this planet, are actually the third generation of intelligent beings. That would mean there were (are) two previous generations who have had a great deal of time perfecting the art of Walking into a willing, or unwilling host. Would that not be the hack of all hacks? Would these previous generation walk ins, honor the no memory rule like everyone else, or would they try to dominate and control mankind, from within?
Is it possible? any thoughts?

Anyone can have ideas about anything. Ideas in themselves are worthless. It's only if those ideas are supported by hard evidence, and lead to testable predictions and such, that they can give something back, and perhaps even become scientific theories, which describe (to the best of our knowledge) facts.

You say you would never allow walk-ins. What if you had no choice in the matter? What if it happens whether you want it to or not?
I agree with your statement on psychosis.
