Past Lives, Why Siva created the universe?

A cybercadet asks why don't we remember our past lives. Gurudeva says that the memory of past lives is available to us and that it is possible to trace back to past lives. Another question comes from a cyberspace devotee in Wales who wonders why Siva created the universe.
