That is an interesting question almost no one asks ... but in imagination/myth, every soul goes before G-d before it is incarnated, to volunteer to leave Heaven.  And the fold beneath your nose is where an angel touches you, so that you forget the eternity of your "before" life.

People assume ... X ... and never question it.  So many assumptions, so much ignorance.  Another model is ... we are the fallen angels of Lucifer.

All culture, including all language ... is bullshit (it comes from apes).  So what is your excuse?  You have better crap?  Hmmm.

Here is what I was looking for ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophical_zombie

If to be conscious is to be a zombie, and if the zombies are the un-dead .... then since you and I are conscious, we must both be zombies aka dead.  It is mere prejudice that you consider yourself a life form, rather than a death form.  It is unexamined in philosophical zombie land, if pre-life has any meaning.

Well, of course all the mythology is bullshit.  There was no Odin, Zeus, Jupiter, Amun, Ra, Shiva, etc.  All were developed through superstition and fear.  But hundreds of generations lived thinking they were real and ruining their lives because of them. 

We had the bronze and iron ages, the industrial age, and I hope the future brings us the age of non-superstition.  I think that would be the greatest advance of all.
