    I would question this,

    too, of anyone who chooses to give his or hers away. If I never asked you to give your will to me, then I should be absolved from responsibility for the decisions you choose or do not choose to make. Especially when we do not even live in close proximity. The statement, 'You...

    If we don't exist in the physical reality,
