    This life was a summation of my previous existences. My next life will be a summation of this life and previous existences. It is mathematical and perfectly balanced with my previous existences. A formula-driven life.

    As an addendum. You know that if you don't squirt a little life here and a little life there that there will be no life. A drip here, a teaspoon there, Voila! Life! Without which no life. Screw the math. Screw the philosophy. Screw the logic. Who passes on the life? You or me? Do yourself a favor and give the gift of life.

I put up a poll to help but you don't have to follow it, use what you know/guess about your own history. This would be sooo interesting. To start, let me write in mine.

    I head a bunch of easy passings into life, in a careless way, like many options were available. This was for a long time. More recently, there was a competition for life, like a reduction of opportunities. Then, I was asked by a very high-spirited "party"-like group, that I turned down. (Stupidly.) After that there was no opportunity for a while, until later I was offered ONE, but someone gesumpted me out of it really quick after everything was already arranged. Then I was "ordered" to do it already "or else", so I pushed for it and had to stong-arm a few fellows to get into this life that I currently have. No wonder it changed a few times unexpectedly, like it is not really mine. Some others are likely pissed off with me.

    What may be interesting is that I can correlate my above experiences with officially published historic population count data in the Mediterranian region, for the past few 1000 years.

    So, what is your story/interpretation?
    I used to eat mushrooms too.

    There was no “me” before my brain was significantly developed enough to manifest a mind. Who I am, that mind, is a product of genetics and experiences, all of which could have played out in a countless number of ways. If each gene and each experience is a card in a huge deck, then I just happen to be the hand that was dealt.

    I'll never know the answer until I die. If I do come back, I won't remember who I am supposed to notify.

    Re: How much did it cost you to get yourself born?

    I got here by luck, I was born by biological parents that did not have their life together and I was lucky enough that they didn't believe in abortion and I was fostered. Two-years later I was lucky enough to be released by my birth parents from the fostering cycle so my real parents(who fostered me since I was 5 days old) could adopt me, it was a fight bt I was eventually officially adopted . And Now 20 years later I'm as happy as ever.

    How much did it cost? Not sure. I'm in my mid 20s and still paying them off to keep their mouths shut about how cheap cocaine was in the 1980s.

Now I worry about global warming and energy/environmental issues but lack the manic drive of my youth. I analyzed that as other.
