DeMarco, Frank. Rita's World: A View from the Non-Physical (Kindle Location's 4460). Rainbow Ridge Books. Kindle Edition
(Q) [In an earlier session, Rita said, "The whole point of creating a soul in a given time and place, comprising certain traits and predispositions, is to create an enduring resource; so, when successful, there would be no point in throwing the elements back in the soup!" What would constitue a "success" that would "create an enduring resource?"]
(A) This is simpler than it seems, in concept, but may not be so easy to grasp in detail. The short answer is, to the extent that a lifetime created a unique new window on 3D, it is valuable. But if it did not, not.
(Q) That sounds awfully cold.
(A) I know, it sounds like we are saying "that life wasn't really worth anybody's time, forget about it".
(Q) That is exactly what it sounds like.
(A) And that is both an accurate and an inaccurate summary of our position. The closest analogy I can think of offhand is fishing. If any particuar cast doesn't catch a fish, we pull the line back and cast again. Would there be any point in leaving the line in the water so we wouldn't "waste" the cast? Do we hurt the line by pulling it back? The apparent callousness stems from your viewing it from the 3D, which tends to make illusions seem real and reality seem illusory.
