I’m curious as to what people believe about reincarnation (if you believe about reincarnation.) and I’m going to post my theory here as well as ask that you all post your own or comment/wail on mine.
Time is infinity. There is an infinite amount of time after your death, and there is an infinite amount of time before your life. Even before the big bang, there was already a universe before that that must’ve caused it, this energy, and after the universe now stops expanding and starts contracting, there’ll be yet another big bang to start it over again. The universe, all that exists, the suns and the planets, and our life, is just one, big cycle. Knowing this, that the universe has always existed, perhaps not as it is now but always has, for an infinite amount of time, is comforting. And knowing that the universe will continue to exist, even after the contraction and another big bang, for an infinite amount of time, is also comforting.
Knowing this, however, we realize that we, as humans beings, are not the first sentient beings to exist in the universe. If you think about it, infinity has stretched out forever behind us, and there were probably beings that were very much like us, perhaps better or worse, and they eventually died out. And after we die out, because you know that humans eventually will, there will be other sentient beings that will live on a world like ours or different than ours, and continue to live on.
People, human beings, are filled with the energy of the universe. Our birth is a collection of that energy into a sentient form, and our death is a dispersal of that energy into the universe to be used for something else. There is, however, a chance, a very small statistical chance that that energy will collect itself again, sometime in the future, to create the same human being, in a different situation or time. The chances of this happening are astronomically small, so small that it’s one in 1 with some million digits. So small it seems impossible. And yet, when you multiply that with infinity, it also becomes infinity, and it becomes sure to happen.
So when you die, at some point in the far future, you will be born again, in another time, place, species, planet or situation, and your energy of consciousness will be with you again, and the life you’re living now is just a repetition of the life you’ve already lived before the last big bang, or perhaps even farther back then that. – S’ijto.
i enjoy this theory. my personal theory is based off of quantum physics.<span style=”font-size:11.0pt;line-height:107%;

quantum physics shows that at the most basic level of the universe, events
involving its smallest particles, such as electrons and protons, only occur
once they are observed. This suggests that the material world may be derived
from consciousness, not the other way around. Although that idea is debated by
many. It is a belief that’s been shared by a number of quantum physicists, including
Max Planck, the father of quantum mechanics. If consciousness creates the
material world, then it may not be dependent upon the world to exist. It would
follow that consciousness does not depend on a living brain to exist. So, if
consciousness doesn’t require a brain, it may continue after the brain stops
working. It could then get attached to a new brain and continue on in another
life. so if the the material universe is derived from the mind, then possibly so is time. there is always the possibility that each and every mind is the same, continuously bouncing from life to life, not letting time control its path, because it created it. this one mind is sort of like god. it has created everything in the material world, all the way down to time itself. one day your you, the next life your a slave woman, in the next your me, in the next your your own mother, in the next your Julius Caesar. the same mind that creates it all, and controls it all, entirely subconsciously.
