What we do, does it matter? What we say, doesn’t. All it takes is one of those “I don’t feel like doing this” thoughts to get us all in trouble. There are many ways to turn these bad thoughts into good and meaningful actions, and it’s up to us to put these intentions into action.
We all have bad thoughts, but most of what we do (or fail to do) is a result of our own bad intentions. To the extent that we act on our bad intentions, we give our subconscious a way to tell us when it has done something we don’t want it to do.
I don’t know if it’s true, but I have a good feeling that there are good intentions in the minds of some. Maybe you believe in the afterlife, but not the afterlife. I believe in the afterlife because I want to see myself in a place where my own body doesn’t die and my own mind doesn’t have to be a machine.
You know what they say, “everything is relative.” To me, everything is relative. I dont need to be a machine. I dont need to know how to do my job. I dont need to know how to die. I dont even need to be alive. You know what I mean? I have a good feeling that my whole life, my whole afterlife, may be nothing more than an illusion.
In this universe, a person is someone who has a certain level of consciousness, but they arent necessarily conscious. Many people believe that the afterlife is a place where the living are allowed a second chance at life. This is a belief that is often considered to be anachronistic. However, there are many people who believe that the afterlife is more akin to paradise than to hell.
The belief in a second life is a common one among the religious. For example, the belief in reincarnation is widespread in Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and a variety of other religions. People who have died and are now alive again often believe that they are reincarnation. Of course, we know of people who have been reincarnated many times, but we don’t really know a lot about them since they often go unmentioned in popular media.
There are a few known people that have been reincarnated many times and only been unmentioned in media. One such example is the great war hero William Wallace, who was killed by his wife for sleeping with another man, and then went on to be killed again by his son. The two son’s also have been reincarnated, though not in the same timeline as Wallace.
Some reincarnated people have lived in the same time period as their original self, as in the cases of William Wallace and the twins. But there are also several cases of people who have been reincarnated in the same time period, but in a different order. These would include the infamous Dr. Frankenstein and his son, the famed Sherlock Holmes.
The first time I ever heard of an entity not existing in the same place in time as its reincarnated self was in the film Frankenstein. I’ve had the weirdest sense of déjà-vu in the films of both of these characters, but I also know that they are not in the same universe.
I’m not about to put in a lot of effort the fact that I’m a member of the group of people who have been reincarnated in the same time frame. There seems to be no way for me to know whether an entity I have been reincarnated in the same time period would be on Deathloop’s party island, or on Blackreef’s, or to find out that I’m not.
