Thias is a copy of a page called life and afterlife. I think that reincarnation now needs a separate page that I will add in the menu under Learning – Paranormal.
- Reincarnation cases
- Consciousness in a new body
Metempsychosis (Greek: μετεμψύχωσις), in philosophy, refers to the transmigration of the soul, especially its reincarnation after death.
Virginia University Perceptual Studies has dedicated a lot of time and effort in analyzing the report about reincarnation that has become viral in the latest years.
There is a Netflix doc about reincarnation in Season 1 episode 6 of “Surviving death” series. Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist, talks in this doc about a few cases.
He says among others that “there is more than just the physical world. There is a larger reality”
James Leininger is interviewed in the Netflix reincarnatíon doc.
Another story is that about Manika. Even if a nice story, I have not find other sources telling about Manika. A similar story about Shanti Devi that even engaged Mahatma Gandhi, is however known. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7IK6OoU6SI

One good video presenting scientific studies of supposed reincarnation is found in https://youtu.be/9w2MCpzE8u0?t=1m1s
Anna Franks reincarnation
I did not know the case of Anna Franks reincarnation presented in this video ( https://youtu.be/9w2MCpzE8u0?t=5m45s )
What facts are documented in this video:
- Barbro, a girl, born 1954 in Sweden was baptized by her Christian parents with the name of Barbro
- 2 years old she told her parents that her real name was Anna, not Barbro
- The diary of Ann Frank had yet not been published in Sweden in 1956.
- The parents insisted on calling her Babro and themselves as mam and pa
- Barbro knew they were not her real parents and that her real name was not Barbro
- 10 years old they went to Amsterdam where Anna Franks house is located.
- At the hotel, she said to her father they did not need a cab as they were not far away from Anna Franks house.
- She said she knew where the house was.
- She guided her parents to Anna Franks’s house in 10 minutes walk.
- At the house, she saw that they had changed the exterior stair.
- Inside the house, she had horrifying feelings.
- In her rooms she saw in her imagination, the movie star images she once cut out from newspapers.
- But the images had been taken down as people touched and stolen these. The guardians explained.
- The parents understood after this that she had memories from a past time.
Consciousness in a new body (reincarnation)
This is a copy from my page about the unlimited consciousness
If our consciousness is getting a new body (as in reincarnation) the memories of its previous earthly life is remembered as dreams (or nightmares) in children up to a few years age (1 to 5-6). With the development of speech, children can give more detailed information with articulate words, about its previous life.
Many childhood memories of a previous life “will fade with time. That in no way diminishes the strength in the child’s original experience.”
Ian Stephenson says: “the assumption is that when your brain dies, your brain perishes also. That is so deeply believed that scientists fail to understand that it is in the end an assumption only. And there is no reason why aspects of the mind wouldn’t survive the death of the brain.
Jim Tucker, University of Virginia: “While we will never fully solve the greatest of all mysteries, what happens after death, the evidence is starting to suggest that we might be part of a grander existence that we can’t fully fathom.”
Cases documented in the Netflix series “Surviving death” S1.E6:
- Gitxsan Alex Stoney/ Albert Tate case
- Atlas//Jaylen Robinson case
Atlas is born 2014 Jaylen died 2005,
- Ryan Hammons/Marty Martyn case
50+ of Ryan’s statements about Marty were correct.
- James Leninger/James Huston Jr case

James Leniner as an adult said: “I think that the soul, whatever’s there carries on. I think especially James Huston’s case. I think that there was something he hadn’t accomplished. there was something he was meant to do, that he hadn’t done. And this was the second chance for his legacy to live on.”
Reincarnation believes do not hold water”
Video with Abdul Ghani Jahangeer tells more about it.
Whatever is true, the testimonials shared by UVA are astonishing.
As Abdul Ghani Jahangeer present reincarnation as happening for leaders who committed crimes and sins, it does of course not “hold water” as he says. We know only about Dalai Lama as a reincarnated leader. Most cases are about normal peoples like wifes, a pilot etc.
Abdul takes inspiration from the Quran, where reincarnation is in terms of “twise” in case of sinners. ut we do not know the real devine mechanisms behind reincarnation. If sins committed by leaders would be the reason for reincarnation, then I presume we would one day have leaders like Hitler, Stalin reincarnated. No one can turn the story back and no reincarnated human can give relief to all the victims of these leader’s crimes.
hat decides however you will be reincarnated or not, is however not known. Buddhists have their opinion, others like our Muslim brother Kanat Eleyon talk about reincarnation if you are a bad leader in this world. It is up to you to believe whatever. We have maybe to wait to walk over the bridge to really get knowledge about this issue.
As I always say, behave like a good man loving your next and you should not be afraid.
