This book of short stories is called fiction, which is often considered the result of a person's unbridled imagination gone berserk. But it is much more than that; fictional stories allow one to freely examine that which is not accepted as a truth or not considered a real possibility without the fear of reprisal from society's convention. The maxim offered by the great philosopher of Samos suggests that one seek his own truth and not that of another. To actively seek truth for one's self will give an accepted truth from effort and not merely acceptance. How can one seek his own truth? This book is founded on many stories that are pure fiction, although a few contain a bit of truth. Two of them, however, are exactly true without a shred of fiction or imagination attached. Read this book and find them. I t is a demonstration called: seeking truth. Consider the principle theme called metempsychosis offered in many stories contained in this book. Millions of thinkers deny it a possibility. A few thinkers offer the notion from ignorance that one returns from death as some kind of animal, however, once human, always human. Pythagoras only claimed to have returned as human. If you acted like an animal in human form, then you would return as an animal in human form. All cultures and religions once accepted transmigration as fact which was and is held as truth by billions of thinkers. Do not allow another to think for you. Great numbers of believers in any direction cannot offer an absolute truth, one only need look to fanatical mob mentality to see this is a fact. Perhaps this book will stimulate your thinking.
