Fortunately, it has recently begun to attract serious interest from the scientific community. Decades ago, American astronomer and astrobiologist Carl Sagan stated that ?there are three claims in the [parapsychology] field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study,? with one being ?that young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way than reincarnation.? Fast forward to today, and amazing discoveries have been made, as multiple researchers have taken it upon themselves to study this intriguing and inexplicable ? at least from a materialist scientific world view ? phenomenon. Subjects like reincarnation belong to the non-material sciences, an area of research that deserves more attention. As Nikola Tesla himself said, ?the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.? University of Virginia psychiatrist Jim Tucker is arguably the world?s leading researcher on this topic, and in 2008, he published a review of cases that were suggestive of reincarnation in the Journal, Explore. A typical reincarnation case, described by Jim, includes subjects reporting a past life experience. The interesting thing is that 100 percent of subjects who report past life remembrance are children. The average age when they start remembering their past life is at 35 months, and their descriptions of events and experiences from their past life are often extensive and remarkably detailed. Tucker has pointed out that these children show very strong Psych iat r ist Jim Tu ck er emotional involvement when they speak about their experiences; some actually cry and beg their parents to be taken to what they say is their previous family. According to Tucker: The subjects usually stop making their past-life statements by the age of six to seven, and most seem to lose the purported memories. This is the age when children start school and begin having more experiences in the current life, as well as when they tend to lose their early childhood memories. Sam T ay l o r Sam Taylor is one child Tucker studied and wrote about. Born 18 months after his paternal grandfather died, he first began recalling details of a past life when he was just over a year old: When he was 1.5 years old, he looked up as his father was changing his diaper and said, ?When I was your age, I used to change your diapers.? He began talking more about having been his grandfather. He eventually told details of his grandfather?s life that his parents felt certain he could not have learned through normal means, such as the fact that his grandfather?s sister had been murdered and that his grandmother had ΥΝ•„™½½ΑΙ½•ΝͽȁѼ΅…­”΅₯±­Ν‘…­•Μ™½Θ‘₯́Ι…Ή‘™…Ρ‘•Θ•Ω•Ι䁑…䁅Ёё”•Ή½˜‘₯Μ)±₯™”Έ€‘Ν½Υɍ”€)AΙ•ΡΡδΙ•΅…Ι­…‰±”°₯ΝΈύЁ₯Πό)I䁅Έ€ό½δȁΌ΄P ”4€ά•ΝΠ)Iε…Έύ́ΝΡ½Ι䁉•…Έέ‘•Έ‘”έ…̀Ё啅Ί½±°έ‘•Έ‘”έ…́•αΑ•Ι₯•Ή₯Ήœ™Ι•ΕΥ•ΉΠ°‘½ΙΙ₯‰±”Ή₯‘Ρ΅…Ι•ΜΈ)=Ή”‘”ΡΥΙΉ•™₯Ω”°‘”΅…‘”…Έ…ΉΉ½ΥΉ•΅•ΉΠΡΌ‘₯́΅½Ρ‘•ΘΈ!”Ρ½±‘•Θ°€ύ$ΥΝ•ΡΌ‰”Ν½΅•‰½‘䁕±Ν”Έό)!”έ½Υ±½™Ρ•ΈΡ…±¬…‰½ΥΠ€ύ½₯Ήœ‘½΅”όΡΌ!½±±εέ½½…Ήέ½Υ±‰•œ‘₯́΅½Ρ‘•ΘΡΌΡ…­”‘₯΄Ρ‘•Ι”Έ!”Ρ½±)‘•Θ‘•Ρ…₯±•ΝΡ½Ι₯•Μ…‰½ΥЁ΅••Ρ₯ΉœΝΡ…Ί±₯­”I₯Ρ„!…εέ½ΙΡ °‘…Ή₯Ήœ₯Έ Ι½…‘έ…δΑΙ½‘ՍΡ₯½ΉΜ°…Ήέ½Ι­₯Ήœ)™½Θ…Έ…•Ήδέ‘•Ι”Α•½Α±”έ½Υ±™Ι•ΕΥ•ΉΡ±δ‘…Ή”Ρ‘•₯ȁΉ…΅•ΜΈ!”•Ω•ΈΙ•΅•΅‰•Ι•Ρ‘…Ёё”Ή…΅”½˜)A…”€Τā)…Έ€Έ°€ΘΐΔ
