Patrick, thank you for providing these comments from Vice President Burr. I am particularly pleased to read his thoughts on a smaller government...and surprised that he didn't consider himself a founding father...if they now call John Quincy Adams a founder, then Burr certainly is.
I read when he was asked why he shot Hamilton in the duel, he replied "because at the last second, Hamilton's hand shook, and mine didn't". Here Burr corroborates that comment made during his lifetime.
Thank you again for this wonderful insight.
The soul of Burr's viewpoint is logical, if a founder should means a signer of the Declaration of Independence and/or framer of the US Constitution (being an author or contributor, and of & to the Federalist Papers.)
Burr didn't do those things I don't believe.
That is correct...Burr was a practicing lawyer and heavily involved in NY politics and I believe a founder of Tammany Hall.
If Burr had a subsequent lifetime which was chronologically in our past, could a soul have a lifetime which is chronologically in our future?
And if so, can the information given by it of that future lifetime be considered a "prophecy" from our perspective and information on those future events be considered "unchangeable" since that lifetime has already taken place?
It would be interesting to have an interview of a soul having a lifetime in our future, say, 100 years from now.
For sure, in this case the notion of parallel universes will kick in.
As stated before, there are multiple past and multiple future in the existence, all real.
The number of those defies my immagination, and I suppose that only a soul can contain all of them in some sort of universal memory.
Being eternal beings, we, for sure, have an infinite amunt of memory to store an infinite amount of experiences...
@ Santanu - Says The Committee, "Yes and yes and how should the Earth sequential timeline be distorted by such an interview? What you suggest plays to the very old Earth idea of predictions. The future is variable, so is the past, both in equal measures, ways and manners."
But this not implies a splitting of your identity/consciousness?
I as human incarnated, am a "part" of my larger self, so in another incarnation, I'm still "me", but a very different "me"... Maybe now I'm a fairly compassionate man, and there a brutal, merciless killer... How these two can even match?
Maybe my larger self is interested in roleplaying the second, but for sure may current incarnation is really scared and refuses to be something like this...
I'm beginning to question myself... duh
@Santanu, it was described to me that the selection of possible lives and the times in which they exist, are arrayed as a helix around the soul and the soul can choose which life in which ever time (s)he chooses to experience. I understood Burr to say his life since that of Burr occurred chronologically prior to the time in which his life as Burr occurred. I do not have any real understanding of how that might happen, but I am assured I will understand it when I next have that choice to make.
Very interesting, being Straylian, and not a hugely edumakated one, didnt know wtf he was, but with interest pinged, did what we do these days and googled... absolute outrageous behavior to be firing pistols at each other at 6.30 am, with no Starbucks around.. no siree , and i must wonder did Jon Bon Jovis line of I never drew first, but i drew first blood have any relevant to this... probably not, more like ok coral.😁😁
Doubly outrageous because the Vice President and former Treasury Secretary did it.
The Code Duello was an amazingly archaic method of resolving matters of honor between gentlemen. Should one take offense to the actions or comments of others, the Code forced the offender to provide the challenger satisfaction through apology or "on the field of honor", an effective manner of "put up or shut up", all in the name of honor. As advanced as the enlightened thinking involved with the drafting and implementing of the US Constitution, the Code Duello, still used concurrently therewith, was equally as unenlightened. Burr's comment that had Hamilton not accepted the challenge he would have been socially wrecked is certain, so certain in fact, that Hamilton chose to go through with the meeting despite his son having been killed in a duel only a couple years before, and with the same pair of dueling pistols.
An interesting aside to this meeting between Burr and Hamilton is that Burr acted as Hamilton's second on at least two previous occasions and assisted Hamilton in formulating an adequate satisfaction to the offended party...in this case it appears Hamilton's seconds did not have the requisite level of representation Burr had previously provided, and suffered the ultimate price.
@ Steve ...
Both Mr. Burr and Mr. Bon Jovi spent quite a bit of time trotting on the soil we call New Jersery, so they are definitely connected in that way (if not by a similar time stamp).
Burr-illiant connection Mate!!
I wonder how history would have panned out had America remained a part of the British Empire. I guess that scenario did indeed play out in a parallel timeline. Now Britain is a part of the American Empire.
The difference now, less forced participation and short term.
Probably a good thing its no longer the done thing, although i imagine we could have been treated to some contests worthy of a Don King promotion Bill vs Hillary over Monica, Donald vs Hillary , although if Trumpie missed, he cry Fake Pistol, its a Fake pistol ! ! 😁😁
Though this interview I have digested
It is not the one that I requested
It wawas President 3,
Thomas Jefferson, he...
and Ghengis (though he wasn't vested*)
