There is no point in asking the incarnated on their choice between existence and non-existence. Their answer will not be coming from the Truth, but from the accepted order of things. And the answer is always yes. For in prison and captivity such is the only response. There is no reason in asking the non-being, because the answer is always no. The truth lies in the view from a different perspective. And the truth is that the birth is repellent. It is the concentration of violence, hopelessness, suffering, and fatality. - Book of Consolation, 10.1-3
