    Each life I live will be the same but previous lives aren’t remembered so sameness doesn’t matter. One may think there’s that open infinite future time that allows for a different scenario and gives sense and possibiliy to these same lives but it doesn’t exist, it gets struck dead in the water when things begin anew. There’s only one life really. All else is an illusion. The catalyst for this I keep personal.

    in other words…
    I can safely say that I relive the same exact life over and over again, doing the exact same things and yet each one possesses free will. One might think that these contradict one another while in fact they work in perfect harmony.
    It’s the closest I’ve gotten to understanding one of gods mysteries. The other mystery I keep personal.

    -Sameness is an illusion that shouldn’t be feared as God begins anew.

    If you live multiple life, but do exactly the same each time. how do you develop and understand what you need to do different to gain new wisdom?

    So then you are saying the whole universe is in an infinite loop?
    I mean, it would have to be for each of your lives to be "exactly the same", right?
    I mean, one little difference and poof, your life is different.

    Change the world,
    move a rock....

    Try this:

    Befriend an elderly dying homeless man, catch a boy falling from a tree, perform a lifesaving Heimlich Maneuver, encourage a soon-to-be-married couple having cold feet, etc., and during your busy day, learn to play the piano and ice sculpt, and then fall in love.

    Well since you can't remember past lives, how do you know it's always the same?

    It took a min. Then I just laughed. I think that's a good movie I'll watch today. Long time no see.
