I have noticed...
Jews, Christians, and Muslims all "profess" belief in immortality, but the veneration paid to the first century of life is proof that they truly believe only in those hundred years, for they destine all the rest, throughout eternity, to rewarding or punishing what one did "when alive".
In my view, the Wheel conceived by certain religions in Hindustan is much more plausible; on that wheel which has neither end nor beginning, each life is the effect of the previous life and engenderer of the next, yet no one life determines the whole.
[J.L Borges, The Immortal]
