Reincarnation: do you believe in it?
Being afraid of the unknown is part of life. There are many different answers to this question. Philosophical search of self might lead to results unimaginable. Is it reincarnation if you found out something new about yourself that changes the core of who you are? Is it reincarnation if you leave your past behind and start anew? Is every Monday a reincarnation day? Different answers for different thoughts.
And then there’s science. The cold hard facts studied minutely in an attempt to obtain a solid result. There’s no irrefutable evidence that suggests the possibility of reincarnation. When you die, you die. Your brain deteriorates like every other part of your body. All information stores in it, lost. Never to be found again. Well, not in the same form, at least. But then again, even science tells that every cell in the body dies and replaced in about seven years. That’s a new body you have right there. You could consider that to be reincarnation if you choose.
At the end of the day, it’s all about perception. Choosing to believe without is still just a belief. And choosing to ignore facts is not gonna change reality. I don’t believe in reincarnation in the strictest sense of the word. However, I am open to it in a scientific way and in a philosophical way if it means starting fresh. But, I don’t know.
