    I remember in like 1987 I interviewed for this tech company, and the HR woman that interviewed me all of a sudden started talking about religion or her beliefs (not really appropriate, but it was really after the main interview, plus, she was friends with Taylor Dane!).

    Anyways, she said she believed that everyone has a lesson that they need to learn while on earth, something they have a hard time with. Like for instance: patience, forgiveness, anger, etc. She said that once you learn that lesson, that is when you will die and go beyond.

    Just thought I'd get your reaction to that or if that is a belief in any kind of religion.

    She just described the premise for the TV show, Quantum Leap.

    So people who live past 100 haven't yet learned what they're supposed to learn ?

    And, what about the fact that people in poorer countries all have a shorter life span, on average ?

    What about our ancestors of only about 100 years ago, who had a much shorter life span than we do now ?

    What about children who die at a very early age or babies who die at birth ?

    don't believe this theory at all. life lessons often come early bringing about life changes for people that they carry with them successfully for a long long time afterwards. sometimes those lessons come on the backs of terrible events that redirect a persons life in a more positive way by reassessing priorities. How fatalistic to think that that would be the end of life. Was this a jaded old maid interviewing you

    Whatever it is, I hope you learn it....bro. Because it doesn't matter if what the woman said is a crock or not if it helps you empower yourself.

    So following her theory, it's a good idea to not learn anything if you want to live long.

    I was just telling you what she said, it's not something I personally believe in. Oh, and thanks for wanting me to die.

    I think your head has been squeezed too tight between a nice pair of muscular thighs, buddy. icon_surprised.gif When I said what I said, I said it not believing in the quote because if it were true, academia would be splatter house. You didn't really make it clear that you agreed or disagreed with her, so I wished you fulfillment of life's lessons, only after reading religious poppy-cock like above, would that be an offensive gesture.
