If they created it ( Purgatory ) why did they need to be reminded that they are dead ?
I must say, they sure looked REALLY happy to be dead when they found out. I'm not to sure that I would be all that happy to find out that I was dead and living a false life. Maybe I'ld be like Ben and Eloise, I'd be happy just staying put. I'm not looking to find out though ! ->
the purgatory plays another part people generaly obsess about.it's the "what if my life had been different" dream.they were happy i gues because they were really greatfull to have experienced the what if's as well as their real life.they didn't remember their real life so the experience could be real to them.that's how one can come to terms with one's own demise,no what if's,maybe some regrets.
fairy tale ending i say!!!
