Reincarnation and The X-Files
At times I almost dream
I too have spent a life the sage's way
And tread once more familiar paths
Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-alliance an age ago
And in that act a prayer for one more chance went up so earnest, so...
Instinct with better light let in by death that life was blotted out not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it to remain dim memories
As now when seems once more
The goal in sight again
The latest movie from the library wasn't a movie but the 4th season of The X-Files, and tonight I watched the episode titled The Field Where I Died in which FBI agent Mulder, working with the ATF to find guns cached by a religious cult, meets a woman he comes to believe he knew in a former civil war era life, who dies, despite his best efforts, in a group suicide. In the video, Mulder speaks the lines above at the end of the episode, holding the old photos of the people he and she once were, standing in the filed where his former self had died.
Some pics .....
- Mulder and the ATF enter the religious compound
- a woman shows him an underground bunker where he thinks guns are hidden, but she tells him instead it's where she watched him die in another life
- Mulder tries without sucess to convince his partner of reincarnation
- Mulder's too late to stop the group's suicide
Forgot how much I liked The X-Files.
