So what is the "me"?
My brain, I suppose.
Your brain? Your brain is a body part. Like your fingernail or your heart. Why is that the part that's you?
Because I have sort of a voice in my head, the part of me that thinks, that feels, that is aware that I exist at all.
So if you're aware you exist, then you do. That's why you're still here.

The version released in Thailand (and most likely in some other countries) both theatrically and on DVD has a song 'Beside You' that plays over the first portion of the end credits. It is sung by Simply Red and credited to Mark Snow and Michael Kaman. The credits go on to say that Chris and Annie's theme, which plays on the credits of the American release and throughout the body of both versions, is based on variations of 'Beside You' by Mark Snow and Michael Kaman. However, the American credits say that Chris and Annie's Theme is based upon variations of 'Beside You' written by Martin Fulterman and Michael Kaman. See more »
Although this movie is heart-wrenching, it is just too beautiful to pass up.
The creators explore possibilities of the spiritual life, and in doing so, have created some of the most beautiful scenes that I have ever seen. Their imaginations seem to be beyond any limitations. I congratulate them on their genius.
Those who have experience deeply meaningful experiences beyond the world of physical senses see these images and concepts as actual possibilities, and rightly so. In a world where time and space lose all definition in physical terms, incomprehensible and mystifying beauty become the reality. But then, who is qualified to define "reality"?
I have seen this awe filled movie several times and would love to see it again.
