    Maybe he rode in on a (high) horse, and wanted to get rid of it at the end.

      Perhaps somewhere along this line something as simple as a flying stone could make a huge impact?

        As far as preserving Forrest’s DNA, I had an entire solve based around “Me in the Midden”. They’ve found organic material inside packrat middens that dates back as far as 40,000 years. I thought Forrest wanted his bones near a midden so the packrats could carry some bone fragments inside.

Thus the answer to "why" could be the journey of enlightenment that Forrest took during and after his bout with cancer, causing him to progress and develop his feelings about how and where he would actually die and be interred (or have his ashes spread). Does anybody know that? If Jack does, he wouldn't answer. Perhaps that is the big final reveal.

            That idea will be considered (some more. It's kinda been, for a while).

              I'd consider amniotic fluid to perhaps be considered "water", but not "waters".

                It does, to a degree. If you mean to the highest degree measurable, that's a pretty low likelihood, unless Forrest is an identical twin. I have no reason to believe he is. But in some circumstances, like when someone has a "double cousin", the two people share identical genetics. I don't know whether that means having the exact same DNA, necessarily. Mutations happen, for example, and could interfere with that kind of "coincidence" (I suspect). As always, part of my opinion.

                  Consider, per chance, that little rock had wings and just how influential that might be (have been) on a young man's mind?
