I was once contemplating birth and how the experience is said to be traumatic for the child and I wondered, does the child believe itself to be dying when in fact it is being born? Does this tell us anything about our own future "deaths"? Are all lives of limited duration with a further death/rebirth to come? I am not referring to reincarnation here but perhaps being born into different dimensions or something completely different. I don't know what evidence we can possibly find to answer these questions but I am happy just to have a philosophical discussion, a kind of "what if?...".
