If I work incessantly to the last, nature owes me another form of existence when the present one collapses.
I don't know if Nature actually owes me anything, but it would be a waste of good learning Not to give me another chance at existence.
I hope to work this winter in Yellowstone, watching wolves in the snow, bison snorting out steamy breaths near Old Faithful, plowing through several feet of snow, looking for a few grasses. If I get to chose an animal for my reincarnation, I think the wolf would be fun. They live in packs, get to roam around a great deal, and look pretty awesome.
