1. The world is round and thus it doesn't have any edge - so to speak. The only edge is the blue sky and the limitless emptiness
2. We are all closer than we 'think' we are
3. Maybe we are all living like in different rooms of the same house - having separate exit doors for each room so that we never get to see each other - and become aware our closeness
4. Life is as good as it was from day one
5. Our task is to become aware of the objective that we are constantly suppressing
6. The only future we get is the one we make
7. The most intelligent thing we can do is to pray for criminals
8. It's mainly attitude which changes
What use is prayer? It hasn't ever been shown to do anything at all.

And this isn't the only study I've read where prayer was actually worse for the one's being prayed for.
Prayer has no effect on the external world. You’ll get the same results praying to Elvis. Praying takes balls!

Maybe it would be safer for you if your god weren’t real?
God hears every prayer and answers them all, in time. Sometimes not until your next life. Unless you don't need to come back.
Criminals need our prayers. and love. and help. and jails.
