In class we talked about regeneration. Some religions believe that we are reincarnated until we achieve Shantih, or ultimate peace. This got me thinking about one of my favorite shows Doctor Who. For almost the last 50 years the Doctor has been regenerating. The most logical explanation for this is so that the show can continue after an actor leaves without just changing actors and telling people to deal with it. Recently however, I thought of it as the Doctor is reincarnated because he has not yet reached peace. There is still something left for him to do and therefore his time is not over. Tennant said, "I don't wanna go", maybe that was because he had not found his peace. He knew that there was still more to be done and still worlds to be saved.
