When I think of the only logical way to look at life, I think of the lyrics in Stone Sour that say "Immortal till I'm born again". To me thats true. As soon as you die, you have to be born again, from your perspective. There is nothing in between living and a new beginning. Thats why when you sleep, time goes by in an instant. So you really never die. I was forged together by the stars before I was born, I'd imagine it wouldnt be hard after I die. Personally, I believe there is no such thing as 'true death'. We are all the same Self, manifesting in different bodies and different times and places. When a body dies, the focal awareness is merely transferred to another body. It's not exactly reincarnation, since that implies an individual self to be reincarnated. It's more like infinite incarnation of the same Self. The same person in Essence living out various characters in the wonderful play of life. You ever wonder about the 'afterlife'? You're living it. You will live it again. The pity of it is you will be none-the-wiser.
