    Whys your post so crazy? I mean all the space? Is it to allow us time to think until we get down to the words at the bottom? Haha

    And that's funny you started this thread after our conversation haha

    But you know what reincarnation is. What are you really meaning to ask?

    I was meaning to ask others about their experiences, then, once I knew I had a captive audience, get some methods for self-regression. I was hoping that if I knew some real memories from others, I could better understand the process myself.

    I'm not at the 101 reincarnation level, but I could say I'm learning reincarnation 150…

    I don't know how likely it is that you can do it on your own. I think you're supposed to be in some sort if hypnotic state where you're disconnected from your present ego state.

    Darn…
    I guess I have to wait until I move out of the house in a few years…



    At least I can have a pen pal until then…
    I'm still amazed at how much we have in common, except you ended up a little happier and with less death…

    I was brought up Hindu and we do believe in reincarnation based on karma. I remember my mom asking my to get her a glass of water once and I made a kind of groaning noise because I didn't want to do it and she scowled at me and told me I'd be reborn as a lizard in my next life and be doomed never to be able to drink because of my unkindness. It was such a terrible image and she said it in the most dire way you can imagine.

    Anyway, I don't know if I believe in actual reincarnation. I had a dream once where I died and my spirit gradually became a part of everything in the universe. I woke up once I no longer had any consciousness left of me being me. I like to believe that's what will happen when I die, but honestly, I have no clue what will actually happen.

    There are other threads on this topic and some of its details that you discuss.

    I personally put VERY little credibility in hypnotic-like state past life recall. past life memories wouldn't be in the brain because you have a new physical body each time. One would have to access some "reincarnationally deep" portion of one's being. Thats not something some psychotherapist is going to pull out fo you in 30 minutes lying on a couch.

    I guess that sounds reasonable…
    I just thought that it was plausible that such a thing could happen…



    The more spiritual side of me wants meaning, but the more rational side of me keeps swatting things down. The way I was raised, reincarnation wasn't a thing. I just am trying to explore and develop something I can really put stock in.



    I need to know something comforting, that I can also back up logically.



    Otherwise, I just have a bunch of possibilities with equal value.



    I guess I need something that I can defend with evidence if I get challenged. I guess I need facts and examples to ground an idea and make it more than a simple concept.



    I guess I am looking for true metaphysical principles that I can champion and spread throughout the world.

    I don't believe there are facts about the afterlife, or at least ones that are known to humanity. Maybe some day they might be, but I kinda doubt it.

    I personally believe reincarnation is impossible, except maybe tangentially in the form of atoms that were once mine becomng part of others (which is, and is beautiful).
