james_stephen018I am a retired American stage actor and recycler. I am writing my first musical play called Democracy is Dead, which deals with this subject of dreams as a vision of the afterlife.

I am not a religious person, but I do believe there must be some reason for our existence. I do believe in a God, or perhaps some alien race that once created this world or universe and are now, perhaps, long gone. I think all religions are basically good.

I think the big question may be “are we just robots”? If we believe in nothing after death, or that dreams are nothing but the result of the brains actions and so die when we die, then we have to face the inevitable fact we may just be nothing more than robots.Science has become the new religion. But they still cannot tell us how life is created or how it began.
