Come to think of it. I may not be 80-years-old. Maybe life begins only when one becomes fully conscious. As a thinking being. Aware of one’s own existence.  Complete with memory.  An argument could be made. That I don’t yet meet the requirements of being alive. Sure, there’s circumstantial evidence that I emerged from my mother’s womb. In Chicago. On the night of 9/11/35. But maybe it wasn’t until five or six years later that I had a conscious identity. As a unique functioning and thinking being. It’s possible, too, that I still haven’t reached the level of being fully and certifiably born. In the form I’m ultimately meant to be. Perhaps as nothing less than a living and conscious and thriving and loving spirit. Gloriously and magnificently sprouting from my physical cocoon. In other words, I’m still in the process of being born. Not yet fully alive. Therefore, there’s no reason to start counting the years of my real and profound life. Yes, it’s a good feeling. That I am so young. Not even yet being born. Here I am. Still in the preliminary and preparatory stages of truly conscious life. Wow!!! What a stunning revelation!!! --Jim

I don’t want to sound like a born again fella. Because that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m looking at the possibility. That I haven’t even been born yet. Not even a first time.  So I can’t be waiting for a second time.  In my weird scenario, there is only one time. And that time hasn’t yet come. I’m  steering clear of any religious context. Could be that physicality isn’t real life. It’s merely illusion. Duping us. Into thinking that our make-believe physical world is real. When it isn’t. We achieve true reality when emerging as spirit. Any way, it’s a thought. That makes me smile. Does no harm. That’s a good thing. --Jim

I love to exercise my imagination. Gives me a sense of having a mind. With no limits. --Jim
