“In my research, I have found that the issues people are dealing with now often have roots based on an earlier life that extends into this life. If not resolved, they will possibly carry them into a future life.”
“So people have more than one life?”
“Many do. What I’m going to tell you now is strictly my opinion, not fact.”
“I believe we repeat circumstances to get a ‘redo’ in a sense until we can correct whatever issue we left unresolved.”
“What if nothing happens while I’m under hypnosis?”
“Then it means one of two things. Either you did not have a previous life or you don’t want to remember it at this time. Are you ready to begin?”
“I guess. What do I need to do?”
“Just lay back and try to relax. Alice will stay here the entire time. She tapes the sessions.”
Casey looked at Alice, who gave her a reassuring smile.
“Will I remember anything?”
“Yes. You will see, hear, and experience everything about your past life or lives. It will be as if you are watching a movie. Throughout the journey, you will be completely safe and protected. You can come out of it at any time you feel threatened.”
Casey glanced at Alice. She still maintained her friendly grin.
With a nervous chuckle, she reclined on the chaise lounge trying to lessen the tension without much success.
Alice got up and turned the lights down low.
Dr. Bernard spoke in a soft voice. “Now, Casey, I want you to listen to my voice. You are completely relaxed. In a few moments, you will begin to feel your eyes getting heavier and heavier, so heavy you won’t be able to keep them open any longer.”
Casey’s could feel her eyes closing despite trying to keep them open.

...angement was your hand in marriage in exchange for Francois paying off my gambling debts. He wanted you and a child. Now that he has both I will not allow you to ruin our family name nor the name of Dumas by carrying on a secret liaison behind our backs. Francois never needs to know. It will remain our secret.”
“That was why you arranged my marriage as payment for your misdeeds?”
“I knew you would be valuable to me one day. The day Francois asked for your hand, I was finally glad I did not kill you or give you to the nuns at your birth.”
She was in shock by her father’s declaration.
The doctor’s voice interruption the enactment, “Tell me what is going on? You seem upset.”
“My father is angry with me because he has discovered I have feelings for Sean. He is acting strangely. I do not recognize the man I call father. He is talking as if I am simply a bargaining chip?”

- ... The aliens are subjected to unfair treatment due to the biopolitics that take place with the human population. The government ran by the humans’, uses biopolitics as a “negative power of exclusion and annihilation,” towards the aliens, rather than to their benefit (Prozorov 191). The humans feel as though the aliens do not belong, and that they should be pushed to the ghettos. Many feel this way because of their own xenophobia. The government uses biopolitics to create a state of exception, where laws that were once protecting the aliens are removed and “the sovereign no longer have limitations” (Bourke, 4)....

- A man named Speaker of Nonsense will clearly be disadvantaged in any debate. What kind of information or argument can be expected of such an individual. Can he explain a rational idea or form a logical conclusion. Is the authority of his discourse trustworthy. Or is he just a man with name and nature in perfect harmony. These are all questions that Thomas More leaves us asking of Raphael Hythloday, the garrulous sailor-philosopher who describes and extols the society of Utopia. From his memories of a five-year stay on the island, Raphael conjures up a thorough depiction of the sociopolitical practices of the Utopian way of life, which he proclaims "the happiest basis for a civilized communit...

- Population Control in China: One Child Policy Does More Harm Than Good Arzigul Ablet is a woman in China. She got permission from the Chinese government to become pregnant, with one exception: she had to give birth in early January 1997. Arzigul went into labor and ended up having her baby in December of 1996. Due to nature's timing, the government fined her 3,000 yuan, or $362.40.

Shortly after, her father dies of a heart attack.

In the midst of this historic tradition is the Utopia of More, a work which links the utopias of the ancient with the utopias of the modern.

- Thomas More's Utopia as a Social Model In his famous work Utopia, Sir Thomas More describes the society and culture of an imaginary island on which all social ills have been cured. As in Plato's Republic, a work from which More drew while writing Utopia, More's work presents his ideas through a dialogue between two characters, Raphael Hythloday and More himself. Hythloday is a fictional character who describes his recent voyage to the paradisal island of Utopia. Throughout the work, Hythloday describes the laws, customs, system of government, and way of life that exist in Utopia to an incredulous and somewhat condescending More.... [tags: Thomas More Utopia]

- Human beings are always consumed in finding something “more”. Our world lately has evolved into a race for materialistic gains that eventually lead to a utopic state of satisfaction and extravagance. Life is no longer a journey to be travelled and enjoyed, but merely a destination to be reached – a destination that portends an existence of affluence. We fail to stop and realize the sheer happiness that the things that we have around us can bring to us. Rather, we focus on our dreary lives, toiling away to reach the almost imaginary world that will give us precisely what we ask for.... [tags: Film Review]
