RE: Reincarnation.

There is all too much I disagree with in your reply that it is evident we will just not agree no matter how much we try, so my one question is this.

Do you feel that Jay Alfred is a responsible, representative and reliable source of information? In other words do you think he is misleading in anyway?

EDIT
Just a side note, your link to detected particle does not work, do you have a working link?

Kinda feels like qualifying exams or prelims, if I have to repeat them then I'm not getting something. ... I mean what if you were not allowed to just cease to be until you've passed your qualifying exams? That feels like what most reincarnationists are suggesting. But I passed the qualifying exams as soon as I was, just by virtue of being.

Just because someone believes in something like reincarnation doesn't necessarily mean they like the idea.

Of course, disagreement is the spice of life!

I thought so initially, but that might be because I'm so familiar with all this and I can skip a lot of crap when I need to. And the tests on human subjects (including you) are going badly. I should radically revise that hypothesis. If I'll ever use him as a resource, then mainly for astronomic discoveries.
You know what? Just forget him and read the journal. No matter how I look, it looks to me like a scientific journal. The experiments use scientific method, control samples, they're properly described for replication and so on.

Another copy of that article is here, if that doesn't work just google up "Dark matter: can you hear me now?"

If you claim there are nuances to principles, there are no nuances to getting arrested or shot for disobeying the power.

RE: Reincarnation.
I believe I will be reincarnated into a level 8 Warrior-Monk-Elf-Mage from the planet Cthulhu. My proton aura is so powerful that I am about to gain paradise. All I need to do is find the flux capacitor on Mount Kilimanjaro. It is heavily guarded by dark Thetans, but I am sure that my Hindu powers are good enough a match for them.

RE: Reincarnation.
I do strongly believe in reincarnation. I believe that we choose who were are, where we're born, and etc all to serve a certain purpose. In my theory no one will know that purpose until death, I believe that our sole purpose as humans is to keep evolving. We don't need to stop at opposable thumbs. I have the utmost respect for all other replies, all very interesting.

Very well! How did you get to that belief?
Something tells me you used the method used by philosophers of ancient Greece, that is, to have an idea and see if it's internally logical, intuitive, "self-evident", and non-contradictory with what we know.

I'm scared by how much sense this makes. If you disregard the actual words.
