    This story may not be completely relevant to this experience however I just felt like sharing my thoughts. Reincarnation, a form of it anyway, exists.  Not the spiritual wishy-washy version though, of souls migrating from body or form and continuing to live on untouched...

    I want to be a star in the sky when I die. I want to be something shinny down on my friends and family. I want to be able to watch over them while I am gone. It would be nice to be a star in the sky when I die.

    Most probably physically impossible,
