Perhaps God or the Universe could turn the coin over, perhaps.
The new plan would solve some of the ongoing problems, namely grief, sorrow and dying.
Perhaps we could be born on the day we die and live life in reverse, thereby slipping quietly away at the end of our days.
We would be wise when born or have Alzheimer’s when born and live backwards to regain our memories, and become a child again with our faculties intact until we are back to the days of not knowing which is the same as what happens with having Alzheimer’s except there is no joy in watching this happen whereas there is joy in watching a child learn.
Reading the above makes no sense because in the end it is both the same. Sorrow comes at all stages of life and perhaps we grow in exponential ways not known until the event happens and we get past the why’s and what if’s, the deep painful grief, the eternal sorrow.
Is there, perhaps, a parallel world? Is there a place in space, not yet found, where life is lived in a more humane way? Is there a place where there are no politicians? Would we be happy without conflict or is conflict what our human race thrives on? It seems that, as I draw near the end of life, this planet is coming apart from all the divisiveness among the inhabitants of our universe.
Does Bezos, Elon, NASA or others have the answer? Not in my opinion, however I could be wrong.
Our brightest and best seem to be leaving this earth through death going to that place we hope is there but only knowing this through faith.
Freddie seemed at peace. I was not at peace with him leaving, however, that could be a selfish view. He had so many gifts yet to give. This is a very common feeling, I think. We seem Never to be prepared fully for the actual event to happen.
I watched my Mother and now my brother-in-law disappear into that black hole of not knowing. Is that better than knowing? Who can answer that question?
Is there a parallel world? When we die what really happens? Do we have a soul that waits to reunite with a healthy body at a resurrection foretold in the Bible? Or, does the soul hang out with those left behind to bring them comfort? Or is there a parallel Universe where they all gather to watch what we, on earth, are doing?
Questions I wonder about as I search for meaning or a reason to go forward in this world.
Do you know?
