    How much did it cost you to get yourself born?

    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?

    I am not sure exactly what is being asked, but I got my life because my mother did not believe in abortion I suppose.

    I understand the OP but think it was poorly worded. I happen to believe in reincarnation so I was put here.

    I don't understand what is being asked. Please clarify.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I made a deal with my parents before I was born, and promised them I would try my best to be a good daughter, if they would give me a body to live in.

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

    I think my parents were in heat and conception followed. Once here I tried to hang on to the tit as long as possible, but they are harder to find after you get in your sixties. In between, I was pretty much manic 90% / depressive 10% until about age 40 and got lots of crap done. High mileage and misuse/overall abuse of the soul sack wore me down, and so I just chased women and felt obliged by my inner drives to do so and would continue to do so, but you can have all the women you can afford and I can't afford so many anymore. Now I worry about global warming and energy/environmental issues but lack the manic drive of my youth. I analyzed that as other.

    Okay, maybe I can put some clarification here. From all indications, life starts at birth, but we are inside those bodies that are born, we are not those bodies themselves. If we were those bodies themselves, then for example we would not recognize our own past pictures without being told that it was us, and more importantly, we would not recognize any of our own sentiments whether they are past or future aspirations, in other words, we would not have the CONCEPT of time. Everything that is formed, be it people or animals or manufactured goods, have a sequence of events that leads to their formation, so their existence is present in that sequence, before they are formed. In this thread, my question is how you experienced the sequence of events that led to your formation.
