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.”

HUBRIS – THE HUMAN TRAGEDY

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Definition of hubris: exaggerated pride or self-confidence.

Human beings, with rare exceptions, do not confront their own mortal frailty.  Humans die. Only spirits are immortal. A human is an immortal spirit who temporarily animates a fragile body.  The tragedy of humans is their failure to be the spirit they really are.

The English language picked up both the concept of hubris and the term for that particular brand of cockiness from the ancient Greeks, who considered hubris a dangerous character flaw capable of provoking the wrath of the gods. In classical Greek tragedy, hubris was often a fatal shortcoming that brought about the fall of the tragic hero. Typically, overconfidence led the hero to attempt to overstep the boundaries of human limitations and assume a godlike status, and the gods inevitably humbled the offender with a sharp reminder of his or her mortality.

To the Greeks, hubris referred to extreme pride, especially pride and ambition so great that they offend the gods and lead to one’s downfall. Hubris was a character flaw often seen in the heroes of classical Greek tragedy, including Oedipus and Achilles. The familiar old saying “Pride goeth before a fall” is basically talking about hubris. —  Merriam-Webster Dictionary

LAND OF THE DEAD

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Land of The DeadIn the fanciful world of the Pirates of The Caribbean films, the living and the dead sail the same seas together — one above, one below.  The dead share the same thirst, hunger and lust as the living, but cannot slake them unless they inhabit a body.  Yet, how much different are the adventures of the living and dead?  Those beings with bodies are called the “living”.  Yet, are not those without bodies also alive in eternity as spiritual beings?  Physical sensation is pale, fragile and temporary and nearly always far less satisfying than imagined in the mind! Inevitably every “living” person will sail The Sea of Life to the same destination: The Land of The Dead.  Who accept the “living” claim that “gettin’ back” is the problem?

It’s easy to die.  Everyone does it inevitably.  But, how easy is it to “live” in a body?  The real problem for a spiritual being is Living in The Land of The Dead eternally.  And, perhaps, it may be wise to avoid “gettin’ back” all together to save repeating the same folly that caused the pain, sorry and disappointments we suffered because we were encumbered by a body!

15 of the Deadliest U.S. Corporations

What’s faster than a speeding bullet?  What’s mightier than a locomotive? It is a bomb? Is it the Black Plague?  No, Billy, it’s an American Corporation!

Big Pharma gets rich when you get sick. Pfizer, the largest pharmaceutical corporation in the U.S., pleaded guilty in 2009 to the largest health care fraud in U.S. history, receiving the largest criminal penalty ever for illegally marketing four of its drugs. It was Pfizer’s fourth such case. As if Pfizer’s massive use of animal experimentation wasn’t heart wrenching enough, Pfizer decided to use Nigerian children as guinea pigs. In 1996, Pfizer traveled to Kano, Nigeria to try out an experimental antibiotic on third-world diseases such as measles, cholera, and bacterial meningitis. They gave trovafloxacin to approximately 200 children. Dozens of them died in the experiment, while many others developed mental and physical deformities. According to the EPA, Pfizer can also proudly claim to be among the top ten companies in America causing the most air pollution.
