    I wouldn't want to go to the kind of place where they'd let me in.

    If you really didn't like it, you could stage another rebellion. You know how that ends.

    Ask Satan. Who was cast out of God's realm.

    Why are biblical entities always cast out instead of just thrown out?

    If you're boss, you can change it. A few thousand years all in pastels, with gauzy, blowy draperies and pretty girls carrying fruit on trays; a thousand or so as an artists' colony, some while in shiny techy hardware with Metallica; then you can do a stint as Hell's Kitchen, with Gordon Ramsay giving everyone... well, you know. Whatever you feel like. Don't get stuck in your stereotype!

    The explanation I like is that all life comes from the same source, one being experiencing itself as many beings. It's not only logical but also observable. As for the soul, I think that is people confusing their person for the true essence at the core of each individual. When you die, your history and your individual story dies with you.

    Do you remember how exciting life was when you were young?

    Like, one organism, living 36-ish billion times, travelling back and forth through time?

    Explain "logical".
    Explain "observable".

    Algae, bacteria, fungi...

    Seriously, though, where does the back-and-forth through time component come from?
    The original life-form need not do anything but go forward in ordinary time, replicate, feed and multiply in order to experience lives as increasingly complex organism(s), at increasing degrees of separation from one another and the life-source, thus becoming less and less aware of their root connection; eventually to become alienated and long for absolute separation from all life as pure spirit.

    Organism is a bit gross, like claiming your body is the sum total of your existence.

    It's everywhere you look.

    Again, it's everywhere you look.

    Because that is not what "one organism" means.


    Those are uncountable distinct organisms.

    I am an organism. I am not the same organism as Napolean, let alone a petunia.

    But OK, you're viewing all life as one big bio-system.
