A Theory of Reincarnation


Reincarnation, which is also called transmigration or metempsychosis, involves the rebirth of the soul in one or more times. Souls are found in humans, animals, and some vegetables. Reincarnation is popular in Asian religions, some Middle Eastern religions, Manichaeism, Gnosticism, and today’s religions such as theosophy.

In primitive religions, the soul leaves through the mouth or nose. In southern Africa, the soul stays near the grave and then seeks a new resting place in a human, mammalian, or reptilian body Ancient Greeks believe that a preexistenting soul survives bodily death and is reincarnated in a human or other mammalian body, eventually receiving release from the cycle of birth and death and regaining its former pure state. Plato believed in an immortal soul that participates in frequent incarnations. Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism originated in India and believed in reincarnation. They believe in karma, the law of cause and effect. What one does in life has effect in the next life. By increasing good deeds the soul is freed from disciplines. Since truth liberates, they believe that a soul can escape from the wheel of birth and rebirth by being absorbed by God or losing all desires. Religions in the Western world do not believe in reincarnation. Instead, they believe that one has only one life on earth after which eternal life is given to them by God either in Heaven or Hell. This highly irrational belief is being dropped by many people in the Western world.

New knowledge today on a monotheistic God transforms the theory of reincarnation radically. In my book, one learns that soul (1) is a spiritual atom, (2)is always related to an infinite number of other souls (3) is never liberated from all of its body parts, (4) is never disconnected from any other soul, (5) can be absorbed or negated only by God, and (6) can never prove its preexistence because its infinity is forever changing and without a root cause. In this new theory of reincarnation there is no karma. Although souls might live together in one life, these souls will not know anything about their previous togetherness. Thus, honor must replace love when a person passes on.

    Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

    I disagree with almost everything you write (except your obervations on the ugliness of modern architecture), but today is your birthday, so congratulations!

    response to Robert and Max,

    Thanks, I am 78 today.

    Max, disagreements are healthy. So, let me suggest that you take a look at Nicholas of Cusa and his work on 'God as not-other' (his last book) and 'On Learned Ignorance' (his first book). Then, wonder why it took over 500 years for his work to appear in the USA.
