What would you do if at the moment of your death you were visited by a celestial being and given the option to either pass on to the after life or be reborn? If you would prefer to pass on, why? If you would prefer to be reborn why and as what? You can be reborn as any type of real living organism on Earth that isn't extinct. I'd like philosophical and or truthful answers please. For me, as I fear what the after life truly holds, I would prefer to be reincarnated, but not as a human. I am living a human life and I don't like it in the slightest. I think it's boring, full of sadness and generally uneventful. I would much prefer to be reincarnated as either a puppy or a kitten or even a bird of prey. A puppy because to me it seems that dogs are always happy (when in a proper environment). To me, its as thought no matter what the problem is they can see pass it and see sunny skies where humans see oncoming darkness and gloom. I also chose a kitten because cats seem to do whatever the hell they want. They adapt to their surroundings and they are resilient in almost all environments. And finally I chose a bird of prey because of the ability to fly. I think that even if I am not aware that I was once human, I would still enjoy the opportunity to fly.
