God made you write this to give everyone a perfect example of how the grand
systems of Cosmogenesis and Anthropogenesis may have come into being.
Which would common observation give information about first--the
circumstances associated with reincarnation or those associated with sleep?
Would it stretch the imagination to believe that highly developed ~actual
human beings~--rather than the beyond-normal-life-and-death demi-Gods Paul
~couldn't~ find in his book--might be able to take just your last sentence
and analogize it into an elaborate myth about what happens when you die and
what happens when you come back again?
If somewhere down through history people forgot that "What you do during the
day will likely effect your dreams at night, and what you leave undone during
the day will still be waiting for you the next morning," they could just
re-read the reincarnation myth and make the analogical connection to get
practical information about sleep, couldn't they?
The possibility always exists, of course, that the analogy has really been
made between small fact and big fact rather than small fact and big myth.
That determination, of course, is where personal theosophy comes into play.
