Okay, bear with me for another one of my bat shit crazy ideas:
Let’s suppose that reincarnation is real.
Suppose that the purpose of life is to spiritually progress and become more like God, by means of repeated incarnations on earth.
Suppose that in one of your incarnations, you gain a lot of wisdom and write books about what you’ve learned.
Suppose those books are published.
Suppose that you die and return to earth in another incarnation, and discover these writings that you made in a past life.
Would that not be the most brilliant way to cache your knowledge and use it to catapult you to knew heights of understanding and spiritual development?
It makes me wonder, is writing and publishing, a characteristic of a highly evolved person?
Is it possible that on some deeply subconscious level, they understand the profound value and importance of getting their ideas out there into the world – not only for the benefit of other people, but for their own future use?
Stephenie Meyer, this does not apply to you. 😛

I feel compelled to include the words of T.S. Eliot:
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
