>>26456826 This is retarded. You can't transcend something you're intrinsically a part of. You were here since the big bang and even if you killed yourself parts of "you" would still be here. And since inexperience is impossible which is clearly evidenced by you experiencing life right now (and not floating in some void or lying in an eternal cosmic sleep, which if inexperience existed is almost statistically inevitable because the universe has been around for 14.5 billion years and the odds strongly favor you being dead right now, having already lived your alleged one life, or you being born sometime in the indeterminate future would also in this hypothetical scenario necessitate that you be in a state of "inexperience").
"Rerolling" is very real but its not like opening up the character select screen in WoW and consciously creating a new character. Every life is necessarily felt like the first and last life you will ever have. If you didn't feel this way, shit wouldn't work and if you think about it for 10 seconds you should be able to figure out why.
I know this answer. If people were aware of reincarnation as fact, everyone would continually kill themselves until they got the life they wanted,,, which would be impossible because those stuck in a position that was necessary to 'cater' to those superior would also kill themselves and the entire system of reality/life falls apart.
>>26456918 That's ridiculous, that assumes absolute determinism. Centers of consciousness don't arise in a predictable fashion and time doesn't loop. The "big crunch" theory has been louted for a while now.
If this were true,it would mean that every single event at the quantum level would have to be identical for you to experience yourself again and again(assuming time loops, which it doesnt).
>>26458306 Yep, I've thought about global, en mass suicides as well if the truth leaked out. Who can blame them? I am in all likelihood going to kill myself, even.
Shit would be so fucking silly if societal beliefs about death caught up with our current understanding of the universe. I can just imagine the successions of gunshots that aren't sounded to wage war against others, but to wage war against the self. An endless chain of suicides by organisms rebelling against themselves, the only respite being the infinitesimally small "blink" in consciousness that demarcates one consciousness from another.
