Just a thought.. So it means that everything is already build in this case student build himself ? If he is reincarnated in every person that ever exist in the universe right ? And the guy who leds him after says " I create everything for u " That means he is the guy.. just a thot :)

I feel like this is all a metaphor for some greater intelligence. Of course the god figure chooses to come in the form of a human and speak english, to not confuse and scare the being who has died, starting to forget everything. This is put into simple terms for us to understand. The reincarnation process is just the impending truth that we all are alike, our souls are all equal. If this scares you, you shouldn’t take it to heart. Life as we know it is beautiful, and that’s why you should cherish it.

Life is a matter of light or darkness We see through this to see the better We run from it to see the worst We work for it to get a bonus We get fired from it and clouding your mind with the judgement We see the light as it bends through the galaxies We see the light But Darkness is light It shows of the path It makes us choose It forces us bad as it shows u bad and makes u a angel of good Life is everything We gotta embrace it to see what is it I am nizar stellman And this my my way of saying L I V E as it will be a wast of cost if you don’t

Not going to lie, this is my favorite video on this site. I’m not sure of any other way to put it. The story is perfect, the voice acting and animation just makes it better, and the music is like the icing on the cake that makes everything about this so beautiful. Good job, me.

I was in such a dark place the first time I listened to this, I don’t know why but I broke down in tears. At the time I really lost my way and I was ready to give up. not to sound cliche but this video really spoke to me, I think maybe it’s the idea that life doesn’t have to be so lonely or that people can be kind? And that my life might have a meaning, if not now than maybe in the next. It’s been a few months now and this video appears in my feed again. I’m not in that place anymore but it still gets me.

How is this not a religion from history. Did no one think of an idea just like this before. I've never heard of this before, but i think its a beautiful way to look at the world and humanity. It puts a new level on "treat other how you wish to be treated"
