     As far as the hostilities between me and ACE on this list
it probably should be noted that I started it.  Or
escalated it.  Seems to be a major flaw in my personality
to react to 'dyed in the wool physisicts' in such a way.

     Consciousness is clearly the primal reality,
and the world of external matter energy space and time is just
one possible theory to explain the consistency of our conscious
daily lives.  I happen to think it is wrong, but please lets
not turn this list into a metaphysical war ground between
those who believe in the grave, those who believe in the
after life, and those who believe in bi directional Immortality (me).

     I will try my best to keep my caustic comments to myself.

     Of course you guys can do what you like.

     I too feel quilty about eating meat, but I love meat.
I get sick without it.  Milk too.  Sorry.  I also feel guilty
about garbage.  I mean where does it go?

     And of course rain forests are a disaster happening right
on schedule.

     So I am really on your side.  But the trans life time view
is not bunk. Those with some contact with their past should
be consulted for what they can remember about what happened
in those lives the rest of us can not remember.

     Think how much we have forgotten.  And didn't someone once
say 'those that can not remember the past are doomed to repeat it'?

     IF we have had past lives, don't you think that would apply?

     Can we afford to cast off such suggestions with an
'I am a scientist, I know it all' attitude that got us into this
mess in the first place.
