REINCARNATING...BE RIGHT BACK

(Excerpt from the book 1,001 THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU’RE DEAD: A Dead Person’s Guide To Living )

VISIT A MATERNITY WARD.

If you finally change your  mind and decide to go back to being a baby again, your best chances of getting a new baby body are at a maternity ward. Find a hospital building. Locate the newborn baby section. You may have to wait for a body that is not already occupied, or one that isn’t quite ready to hatch yet. This could take a while.

Or, you may be able to get one sooner by fighting off all the other disembodies beings who are hanging around the hospital trying to get a body for themselves. Why do you think babies cry and sleep so some much when they’re born? They had to kick a lot of disembodied asses to get a body. That’s why they are usually tired and cranky and have bruises, messy hair and blotchy skin!

1001 THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU'RE DEAD

REINCARNATE YOURSELF AS AN ANIMAL.

Theoretically, you can go back to Earth and inhabit the body of a human being. And, just as theoretically, you can go back to Earth an inhabit the body of a different kind of life form. This could be an interesting interlude.

Many small animals don’t live a long time, like rats and small birds. So, you might enjoy a short excursion as a creature of some kind. There are millions of species to choose from on land, in the air and in the oceans.


For convenience, here is a list of the Top 10 longest lived animals: rabbits – 28 years, bird-eating spiders – 28 years, dog – 29 years, cats – 38 years, goldfish – 43 years, horses – 62 years, birds – 60 to 118 years, elephants – 86 years, Koi fish – 226 years, Tortoise – 255 years!

If you decide to inhabit the body of a different life form you might want to consider their life style and eating habits before you choose.

For example, cats eat rats and mice. That could take some getting used to…. Some birds eat seeds, raw fish, frogs, bugs, garbage and road kill.

Silverback gorillas eat vegetation and they are strong enough to tear a man’s arms and legs off easily. Whales eat plankton, krill, squid, octopus and jellyfish. Dolphins are a fun species. They eat whole, raw fish – guts and all.

Anyway, there are a lot of options. Of course, human beings have been known to eat just about everything under the sun – including ALL of the items AND the animals listed above.”

HONEST COWARDS

“An early description of the way contemporary culture is now full of re-creations and themed environments was provided by Umberto Eco.  In a brilliant essay, Eco saw that we create these realistic fabrications in an effort to come up with something that is better than real — a description that is true of virtually all fiction and culture, which gives us things that are more exciting, more beautiful, more inspiring, more terrifying, and generally more interesting than what we encounter in everyday life. In his description of Disney, Eco also saw that behind the facades lurks a sales pitch. Put these ideas together and you have a succinct characterization of the age, which is forever offering us something that seems better than real in order to sell us something.”  — Umberto Eco (born 5 January 1932 — ) is an Italian semiotician, essayist, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist.

“I GOT DEM (REINCARNATION)  BLUES”

 

I got dem meat body,

don’t know how I got down,

musta’ got shot down,

stuck in my head, blues.

 

I got dem titty suckin’,

sleepin’, walkin’

growin’  and cryin’,

wet, shitty diaper, blues.

 

I got dem anticipatin’,

gotta be creatin’,

start new relations,

re-educatin’, blues.

 

I got dem groin hair growin’,

hormones a’ roarin’,

loins don’t stop achin, lusty sensations,

datin’, matin’, fornicatin’ blues.

 

I got dem eatin’ meat bodies,

army drilling’, rapin’ and pillagin’,

hamburger grillin’, can’t stop killin’,

don’t let ’em beat you, blues.

 

I got dem “now I’m supposed to”,

“be what I’m told to”,

“don’t be day-dreamin’ “,

“what’s it all meanin’ ?, blues.

 

I got dem go to work steady”,

raise up a family,

do what the boss says,

got to pay taxes”, blues.

 

I got dem “do what the preacher say”,

“wait till next pay day”,

“don’t matter anyway”,

“Be Good ’til Doomsday”, Blues.

 

I got dem can’t out-create,

ain’t safe to say,

family beratin’,

self-abnigatin’, blues.

 

I got dem “too late now”,

pains in my bones,

doctors don’t know,

gonna die soon, blues.

 

I got dem creepy worm eatin’,

don’t recall nothin’,

startin’ all over,

got to get me another meat body, blues.

REPEAT (ad infinitum)

HOW THE PYRAMIDS WERE BUILT?

CORAL CASTLE

Coral Castle (shown in the photo above) is noted for legends surrounding its creation that claim it was built single-handedly by Edward Leedskalnin using reverse magnetism to move and carve numerous stones weighing many tons.  Edward Leedskalnin (January 12, 1887 — December 7, 1951) was a Latvian emigrant to the United States and amateur sculptor who single-handedly built the monument known as Coral Castle in Florida. He was also known for his obscure theories on magnetism.  The Force of Nature he describe was also understood by Nikola Tesla.  And, it may have been used to move and life block of stone weighing hundreds of tons by the builders of the ancient pyramids!

Edward Leedskalnin wrote an technical article in 1945 that describes the natural forces of the universe that he refers to as “Magnetic Current”. Apparently, this “force of nature” is are the fundamental particles of energy that cause the planet Earth to rotate on it’s axis.  It also holds the Moon and Earth in their orbits, relative to each other.  This energy is the source of lightning.  It is the same energy from the sun that can been seen in the Northern Lights. This energy can be harnessed and controlled.

HERE IS A PDF FILE OF HIS 1945 ARTICLE:  “Magnetic-Current_Edward-Leedskalnin_51pp

“There is only one man in the world who, by demonstration, has supported the claim (that he understood the secret) of how the pyramids of Egypt were built! The man is now deceased. The claim was made by an eccentric Latvian recluse named Edward Leedskalnin.  (visit the website for videos and technical details)

An immigrant to the United States of America, Leedskalnin devised a means to single-handedly lift and maneuver blocks of coral weighing up to 30 tons each. In Homestead, Florida, using his closely guarded secret, he was able to quarry and construct an entire complex of monolithic blocks of coral in an arrangement that reflected his own unique character. On average, the weight of a single block used in the Coral Castle was greater than those used to build the Great Pyramid. He labored for 28 years to complete the work, which consisted of a total of 1,100 tons of rock.  What was Leedskalnin’s secret?

Is it possible for a five-foot tall, 110 pound man to accomplish such a feat without knowing techniques that are uncommon to our contemporary understanding of physics and mechanics? Leedskalnin was a student of the universe. Within his castle walls, built of coral blocks weighing approximately 15 tons each, he had a 22-ton obelisk, a 22-ton moon block, a 23-ton Jupiter block, a Saturn block, a 9-ton gate, a rocking chair that weighed 3-tons, and numerous puzzles. A huge 30-ton block, which he considered to be his major achievement, he crowned with a gable shaped rock. These personal accomplishments have astounded and surprised many engineers and technologists, who compare them with those achieved by workers handling similar weights in industry today. For his miracles of construction engineering, Leedskalnin received attention not only from engineers and technologists, but from the U.S. government, who paid him a visit hoping to be enlightened. Leedskalnin received them gracefully, and they left none the wiser. In 1952, falling ill and on his last legs, Leedskalnin checked himself into the hospital and slipped away from this life, taking his secret with him.” — from the article by engineer Christopher Dunn  (read the entire article)
