  1. NDE to Hell
    When I was 3-5 years old, I had a recurring dream/nightmare in which I was surrounded by an endless sea of blackness, with spectral sheets/sails floating/waving all around me and as far as I could perceive. My only emotions were of desolation, hopelessness, sadness. This exact same dream happened more times than I remember. My lifelong fascination with mind, reality, the soul has resulted in my interpretation of this dream as a memory of my time between lives, perhaps in one of the “hell” experiences, in which the sheets/sails were lost souls, who never made it to he light. Thanks goodness, I eventually re-incarnated out of that place 🙂 Hopefully I do better next time/this life, though I’ve made many mistakes I know :(…

She had no interest in using computers or teaching a new thing and I remember hearing her arguing with a supervisor that the kids would never need to learn how to use them. I was 5 years old then. I’m now 29 and I feel old because of this article. Those disks only hold up to 1MB of data each. The smallest drive in my house is a 128MB SD card from 2005.

    That moment when perspective bitch slaps you into the back wall 😛
