I am the rebirth of Proust
But I will be free of his will.
To understand that requires that you understand how one can be both the same and different from a personality in a previous birth; how one can be the product of past actions with which one identified, and yet retain the possibility of escaping the repetition of the same. It requires understanding how one can learn from mistakes. It requires understanding how Buddhist rebirth is imagined.
It is also an assertion of will: I will write more briefly.
