I know, ... how much do I smoke to ask this question ... but ... knowing that we have no photo albums and T-shirts from before we are born and after we die, ... maybe you all can take a trip to answer what happened to you at that time. 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?
