Day Brown :
>> The cosmological question rides on the definition of a soul.

makes sense.

>> No experience, no soul. There is no experience in the womb,

very interesting theory. how can you tell there's no experience there?

>> it is a uniformly consistent environment without any outside
>> stimulation that can be detected by a foetus in the early

then the detection would be possible, if it weren't "uniform"?
i.e. it is well-known that fetuses respond to rhythmic sounds
and loud voices prior to birth, for example. (Lisa Gardner):

what initiated your "contact" seven years ago?

that's kinda the problem with "feeling" things. they might be

agreed, or ever.

yeah? and here I thought an avatar was a manifestation of 
Lord Vishnu, of which, many Vaisnavites suggest, Krishna, the main
character of "Bhagavad Gita", was one.

keen, sorta like a pre-programmed angel kinda thing. and you say
this is described in the Song of God (Bhagavad Gita)? whereat?

then you'll want to ascribe 'life' to everything so you don't
miss anything that *might* be alive. what accord and respect
you feel is due to all these living beings will determine the
nature of your response.

> I'd rather assign them life than deprive them of it. 

many would.

beautiful example of how ALL souls are imagined beyond the reality
of the quite real stuff that shifts through it all without any kind
of identifiable essential core.

blessed beast!
