I guess the difference is that I see the purpose of future PLM researchers and scientists as bringing a permanent golden era upon the world, one of complete and concrete knowledge of the afterlife, not as vindicators of already held beliefs. Utopia, to me, is a time when everything we once thought we knew about what happens when we die has been eradicated and replaced with discovered truths, no more mysterious than those of the physical world. Those who usher in that truth can be as iconoclastic as they need to be to ensconce it in the public conscience. By all accounts, that factual reality of the afterlife appears to involve reincarnation, and the tales told by those who've been there and come back are our only window into the nature of that reality, so their words will guide us toward that destiny. There seems to be a lot of sentiment here that these things are meant to remain obscure to the broader world, or that our lack of knowledge of the mechanisms of life and death is good, but as I see it, the endgame is to know, to reveal all, once and forever, and not to be denied by will of God or man.
