Gene, this is very funny, but also--- who knows perhaps true as well. Scientists now talk about parallel universes with galaxies, planets and stars, existing in the same time and in some way in the same space. They talk about 11 dimensions wrapped around each other. The ancients said everything is Mind. I mean this is all mind-boggling and yet we live as if trivia and competition is all there is. No wonder they say 90% of our brain is not used. I hope your friend will find some peace because the Tibetan Buddhists claim that the state of mind before death is crucial, it determines where your next voyage will take you. What if they are right? I remember something like this from the Bible: he who conquers himself is worth more than the conqueror of the city.
