I wonder as I wander through the great depths of life, if maybe, just maybe, this has all happened before. Everyone has their own thoughts and beliefs but have you ever stopped to think that maybe since the beginning of time life has been repeating itself? From Dinosaurs and Caves to iPods and plasma TV’s everything has been done before.
In my “next life” I want to be a cat with a loving family, like my kitten, Gracie. But what if that is not possible? Maybe when I die I will go up to heaven and watch over the world with everyone else. Watch as the world ends and God starts to create it over again. I watch the dinosaurs become extinct and watch all history pass me by, fascinated. Until my mother is born and I am fixated on watching her grow up to be the beautiful woman she is. I learn from her mistakes and know that when I am born I will make my own. I watch her meet my dad and marry him, soon after my life in the sky is ending; I am being sucked into a deep and dark place as my wonderful memories start to fade.
After living in a tunnel for about 9 months, I am awakened into a very bland room and try to recognize anyone around me. I see one person I recognize, as I am handed to her, I smile and know that I am in good hands. I am passed from person to person taking in their faces so that I never forget. Once I am back with my mother and father I try to tell them all that I have seen and been through but they don’t seem to understand my language. I understand every word they say to me, but they look at me with confused eyes when I try to talk back to them.
I give up as I grow older and talk to them in their native tongue, soon forgetting all that I have seen. I grow up with a loving family and in a wonderful home and now have absolutely no memory of what I have witnessed and will see again some day. I will continue to get older, write this same article time and time again and watch as the earth expands, too soon it will be my time to leave again and go live in heaven as it all happens again. Will it never end?
This is just a theory that I have always wondered about. I guess we will never know. Any thoughts?
