...unless the duality and separation of the holographic universe turns you into a bitter corpse.


I think that was unnecessarily mean spirited. And wrong.

Believing in an afterlife gives me a feeling of hope. It makes me understand why I am here. Obviously, what I believe doesn't need to be what you believe. But I don't think we should destroy each other's beliefs, either.

Is that what you want to leave as a legacy for your life here on earth - destroying people's faith and attacking them?
I sure hope not. What we do and say can influence people and make a difference, for good or for ill. Taking away a person's faith can leave them adrift, without a core and without hope. No one should destroy another person's beliefs.

"Cloud Atlas" is just a movie, but the synopsis basically conveys what is possible. And although I haven't seen it, it does say that one life can impact another, which I believe. Isn't that what Charles Dickens wrote about in "A Christmas Carol"? In many of his books? Man has been exploring the issue of our impact on each other for millennia.
Opening tomorrow, "Cloud Atlas"
An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
