albeit a very persistent one."
- Albert Einstein
Maybe the secrets of life and death are a lot simpler than we could ever imagine.
Maybe, just maybe, one of the wisest men to live in our times told us the secret in just one sentence.
What if Albert was right?
What if your life is an illusion? What if your life was no more real than a movie made in Hollywood? What if you are the writer, director, and main character in the craziest story ever told- the story of your life! If that is true, then maybe believing your story is real could be the only true hell there is.
What are the secrets of life and death and why we keep coming back to Planet Earth?
Everyone loves a good story. This is Mary's story. Mary's and Michael's, Kristin's and Eric's, Kort's and Leni's.
And perhaps, in one way or another, it's everyone's story.

About the Author
There are pieces of me in the story. I do believe in reincarnation, even though I was raised in a strict fundamentalist Christian faith that didn't believe in the concept of reincarnation and the immortality of the soul.
As a small child, I had a strange fascination with the Second World War. I loved to build model German airplanes from the war. I loved to watch war movies. I would play World War II board games for hours on end. It was a strange kind of obsession.
All this was very strange because I was raised a strict pacifist. The Jehovah's Witnesses believed in strict neutrality. I was hated in high school because of my stand against the Viet Nam War.
I joined the ministry and moved to Salina Kansas in 1968. I was a conscientious objector during the Viet Nam War and had a 4-D minister classification. From there I went to the headquarters of the Jehovah's Witnesses and worked in their factory for four years. I was a total self-righteous religious zealot by the time I got there.
In 1974, I left the headquarters and got married. I was no longer the religious zealot-just a family man with two kids.
There are many things I appreciate about how I was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, besides their neutrality in all political matters. Yet in 2001, I left that thought system too. The reason is they too had the "us and them" mind set. Because shunning is a part of their believe system, I lost almost everything: all my friends, a sister of fifty years, a wife of twenty-seven years and most of my business.
It's all perfect. I know on a spirit level, I set this story up on the other side. So no sour grapes here. It's my story and I helped to create it, on a soul level.
I drove a taxi in Portland Oregon for six months in 2008, it was one of the most spiritual things I've ever done. I found out that everyone has a story.
