Life after birth ? A thought experiment .

In  a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe  in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has  to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves  for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than  here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe  we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The  first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with  our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and  everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after  delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted,  “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is  here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The  first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no  one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in  the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and  oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We  are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not  and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you  focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can  hear Her loving voice, calling down from above .
