Okay, I started this forum post on a whim, and also because I was thinking of Bokura no Kiseki for no real reason. Now, I saw another forum post having to do with reincarnation while searching Google, however, since that was started back in early 2008, it's locked now. Not to mention, most of the posters were talking about the idea itself as opposed to any personal things.

Anyways, my mother has said that when I was a toddler, I used to say I grew up on a farm in California. I also used to say that my mom was "just as nice as my other mommy", Now, I don't actually remember this since, obviously, I was a toddler. The closest I can get is a pretty darn vague image of a farmhouse in the middle of a field, although that could just be imagined. Of course, the whole story is vague, so that's to be expected.

I'll admit, I've always found the idea of reincarnation fairly interesting: If I did actually exist in another form, I had different parents, friends, relatives, possibly a wife and even child. A few times I've wondered if any of these mysterious people exist in my life now or somewhere else in the world, just not recognizing each other(Or subconsciously so). Although, I will admit, it'd be awkward if it turned out I had a child, since I don't know when this past life would've been. What if the child was still alive by the time I was born into my current life?

Now, don't get me wrong: I'm an Agnostic, so I don't really know one way or the other whether reincarnation exists. All I know is that my mom said I used to say this stuff, and I apparently talked about it a few times. For all I know, it could've just been some random thing I made up for fun. I was just making this topic to see if anyone else had any stories they remember telling or that people have said they told, or even straight-up dreams involving any past lives as just a fun little thing. Well, see ya, folks.

Reincarnation is a fantasy. You can't give personal experiences since it is not possible. Once your body stops functioning your brain decays. Your entire being is programmed by your brain. Once that finishes decaying you are nothing.

There is some research by Psychiatrist Ian Stevenson, from the University of Virginia, in The Division of Perceptual Studies

Of course I really don't care enough to do any research, myself, right now anyway
Still I do find it interesting

My story is I live my current life and not waste time hoping that I will be brought back to life when I die.

It's great.
I self-taught myself to use a bow and arrow. I'm so accurate on doing it that I could pierce a small toy-like marble and scattered it to little pieces.

Somebody's just jealous they don't have any cool incarnations.

What if every really great or really awful person is just a reincarnation of a previous great or awful person? Like Ted Bundy being an incarnation of Jack the Ripper, or me being an incarnation of Vlad Tepes.

One of my oldest memories is waking up from a dream in which I was an adult that was not myself. In the dream I went to sleep next to a blonde woman I do not know, but that's all I remember. It bothered me though, I remember thinking that I had woken up from a different life. Probably just a dream but it was really strange.

sometimes when I look at old photos, especially noticing people dressed in old clothing, it's vaguely familiar to me. it's almost scary how familiar it is.
