So, what's the difference between being male and female. :)

Is this some kind of content idea for an new AdSense site?

Now that's an idea. I will set myself up as a Reincarnation Ministry and sell Reincarnation Certifcation Franchises at $29.95 a shot. Now where did I put that file with the 3 million e-mail addresses in it...

I firmly believe in it as I have some surprisingly clear partial memories that noone in my family can explain away.
Such as a white house on blocks in a white sandy yard where two roads meet. I can remember being a small child who held onto the gate and peered between the pickets at the beautiful moss hung trees across the road, then I would turn around and go under the house to play....that's where that one ends.
I saw a picture a long time back of that very house and location...the name of the town was Cassadaga, Florida. I actually yelled out when I saw it because I finally had confirmation that I wasn't crazy and imagining things. :)
(not sure of the spelling on the town but you can sound it out)

Bred by the moon
Born in a gale,
Forever torn between Heaven and hell.
In my lives
I have done many things,
Walked with paupers dined with kings.
Now looking backward through the years,
Through all my hopes and fears
Here it ends
There it begins
A circle wrought with tears.

Fiction. Transmigration all the way!

So what do you have in your tea and coffee Essex_boy - reincarnation milk?
Along these psychical lines, surely the most fascinating and amazing of reports of 'proof of an afterlife' comes in the guise of the Scole Report [afterlife101.com] as published by the Society for Psychical Research and co-authored by the late Montague Keen [thepsychictimes.com]. I was lucky enough to attend an incredible and mind-wowing lecture given by him on the phenomena that was the Scole Experiment just a couple of months before he died.

When you're dead you're dead!
Only our own self-importance makes us think that there has to be something else beyond or before this snapshot we call life and that we have a soul.
We are no different, except in terms of evolution, than an insect.
Beware of tricks of the mind, remember any good hypnotist can give you a broom and convince you that you are dancing with a beautiful woman. That is the power of the mind
Also, I've medically died twice and there were no blue lights, no visions etc things just fade out to nothing.
As indeed they should

Hey- I bought 4 of those Medieval Wenches. When Fedex arrived, the box only contained 4 sets of clothing. Obviously, some lucky Fedex driver somewhere is partying with 4 naked wenches! That *I* paid for! I'm filing a complaint with Fedex.

Phantombookman: after the hypno thingy thats what I think is true too.
All very odd.

Transmigration is definitely among the serious replies. There's a subtle distinction. Reincarnation supposes a rebirth of the soul. Transmigration is the process of the soul moving from one body to the next. There is a new birth of the new body, but the soul remains unchanged.
I don't have any memories of past lives (or maybe I've forgotten again) but regression is certainly a nod to hypnotism, something I have a predilection for.

Some say "when you are dead you are dead",
Some say "we certainly reincarnate",
Some say "we can go to a beyond"...
The problem is no one knows! No body can answer that question for us. I suspect there are people with genuine experience of greater mysteries. However, I know there are some real fruitcakes who think stuff that is clearly wrong. If you have such experience you may be able to decide for your self. If you do not have that experience you don't know if you are listening to a bigoted opinionator, someone with real experience, or a fruitcake.
So the real answer is frustrating - we don't know. And neither the sciantist or the theologian has a monopoly on that answer.

Reincarnation Exists - The Gods Recycle!
In the future you'll be able to download your soul to disk, whatever a soul is, but you'll have to wait for a new operating system to return to the living. And of course, the software won't be Mac compatible.

Is it true that with each reincarnation one returns as a lower form of life?
| 1:49 am on Apr 28, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Our karma is the main decider of what form another life will take. Fruitive activities are one way of 'falling lower'. Pious activities tend to lead to advanced life forms or better living.

Here is an excerpt from Dory's poem I like very much.
.....we are everything and nothing
but that's how to play the game
in these weather beaten bodies
with these god forsaken brains
we can listen
listen to the universe resounding
in the pulsing and the pounding
of our infant ancient veins.....

Back on topic.
I personally feel as if this world is one gigantic school and there are lessons that MUST be learned or we will keep coming back to the same type of life albeit the characters may change but not the situations, hence, deja vu.
once these are learned well then your next life will be advanced to even more but different learning situations until finally you will not need to "go no more out".
Just my thoughts, everyone is welcome to their own.

Ive heard that said before, Ann.

I think there is a small chance for plant reincarnations.
This is a mess, please bear with me.
I'm living in the family house, in northern California, since at least 1938 when my dad first bought it.
Alongside the driveway was this shrub, which I later learned was a Rosemary bush.
Rosemary is an important herb used in all sorts of cuisine, French and Italian especially.
My parents died and I bought out my brother and sister and moved in, late 1980s.
The old bush was in terrible shape by then, just gnarled old knots of wood with here and there a sprig of green.
On the other side of the driveway, I planted a tiny nes new rosemary plant
(75 cents at the discount nursery) and it grew like a champ.
The OLD R-plant got a hard on! It grew new green and even blossomed!
I think it was trying to romance the new kid on the driveway.
Anyhow, I screwed up and accidentally killed the new R-bush with weed killer.
You have to be super careful with that stuff, watch the winds etc.
The new bush died, and the old one (at least 50 years old) withered entirely.
Finally I yanked them both out. I pitched the old one into a pile of potential firewood.
The new one stayed dead, but the OLD one kept pushing out a few spears of green.
This went on for months.
Finally, I cut off a piece or two of the OLD plant and stuck it into some damp soil,
right where the new plant used to be.
The cuttings from the OLD plant took root! Amazing! no roots, just cuttings.
Now the old plant is outgrowing everything else. I have to trim it back, it blocks my car.
Maybe just looking at a pretty young thing can add a new life to a tired old plant.
I would like to think that the plant "reincarnated". Maybe a better word is "reinvegitated".
Either way, I'd like the opinions of the many qualified botanists out there in Webmasterland.
