Thanks for replying.
The many, many things and books I have read over the years seem very much to me like we have always been conscious, both before and after birth and therefore after death of this body.
There are all these small children, some just having learnt to speak, who tell about their other mothers and how they have chosen these parents before they got here. So many stories about it, and why should they not be true?

If I can find you from "up there" I will knock you the "SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT SHAMPOO". In seven years time!

I want to live forever! So much to do and see and invent!

GG.
