Holographic View on Reincarnation
The real process of reincarnation is far more complex than in the classical views of Hinduism or Buddhism.
For example, the terms “previous” or “future” life are far from being reliable for depicting the Truth. In a way, these “previous” or “future” lives are all simultaneous. Let me explain.
In accordance with the theory of relativity, time is interchangeable with space within the space-time continuum and, in a way, time is only the fourth (or first!) space dimension in that continuum. Our consciousness is moving steadily along that fourth axis of the space-time chart. This is actually giving us the impression that everything is changing. We are moving along that time axis and everything else around us seem to be moving as well. Nevertheless, the whole fourth-dimensional existence is fully stable in the 4D space-time continuum.
Therefore, our lives in the “past,” from the perspective “outside” of the space-time continuum, are actually simultaneous existences. It’s just a matter of point of view—from which coordinate of the space-time you are observing an event. You could even have some lives in the future that are your “previous” lives, meaning the roots of some events in this life stem from those lives. Or vice versa.
But that’s not all. Yes, there are many people being able to recall many various lives from their “past” or “future.” Yet, there were some accounts of different people remembering the same life! How’s that possible? The answer is fairly simple: we live in the holographic world.
Simply put, a holographic world’s view indicates that the Universe is a huge hologram, which is in line with some of the theoretical physics’ new approaches. In accordance with that, each phenomenon, thing, event or being within that hologram has all the information on the entire hologram.
This implies that information on the whole Universe, including its past and future, is embedded within each of us. That’s also applicable to the reincarnation. When one remembers a life, say, from the past, that same life could be “remembered” by another person, as that life is a part of that person’s embedded information as well. It’s just a matter of individual traits and subconscious structures of a person who remembers, which lives they will remember more probably. Each individual is more inclined to one or more “streams” of lives within the “past” or “future,” and those streams are usually considered as their real past or future lives.
Bizarre Entities of Time
But there could exist many forms of time itself.
Imagine that there are beings whose conscious focus is moving in the opposite direction along the fourth coordinate of this 4D continuum. To them, the reality would also be perfectly credible, otherwise, they wouldn’t be conscious at all. Although their reality would be completely different than ours, they would live their lives unaware of our “time” and perhaps of our existence, too.
Moreover, there could exist beings whose conscious focus is moving steadily (or unsteadily?) along one of the other three coordinates of our space-time continuum. Their existence would probably be completely unrecognizable to our minds. Yet, their lives would be absolutely plausible to them, as they would find their ways of connecting different things or events within their consciousness. Actually, that would be completely natural to them.
We can go even further on: the existence of entities whose “time” is two-dimensional or multidimensional is also possible. Their conscious focus would be moving not along one coordinate only, but two or more.
Theoretically, there could be an infinite number of dimensions, which implies the possibility of infinite “types” of conscious minds.
However, string theory envisions the existence of 10 or 11 dimensions in total, of which our familiar 4 space-time dimensions are fully “developed” or infinite, and the rest are infinitesimally small.
Are We Living in a ‘Block Universe’?
Yet, things are even more complicated than all of this. We are not only living in a “block universe” which is static from the 4D perspective; quantum physics tells us that in every single moment of our conscious existence we are “collapsing the quantum wave function” and choosing only one of the countless possible universes that lie ahead of us.
So, we are not some passive experiencers of reality, we are actively choosing our reality ahead and making it real. Still, all those possible lines of time are real in a sense, we could say, as “potential realities.” These potential realities are also part of the whole picture. Some other beings might be going along those potential timelines, but they are real to them, as our is potential to them.
Not only that, there are countless potential timelines behind us, as possible past events that could lead us to this here-and-now reality. And we are aware of one timeline only, to which our memory is tied (except in some cases of the so-called “false memories”). Therefore, the whole picture is far more complex than looking at “simple” 4D relativistic continuum.
Nevertheless, although we are still far from a final “theory of everything,” everything we have learned so far directs us toward a conclusion that the reality and consciousness within it are inseparable, both with potential to have endless manifestations. And consciousness plays a dynamic role in these manifestations – it actively chooses its path all the time.
Nevertheless, we are all one, at the deepest level. And all lives that “happened” in the past or “will happen” in the future, are the lives of the only one being – the Pure Consciousness, Underlying Perfect Reality, God, or whatever we call it. We are one.
A large number of subjects permanently solved their emotional and mental difficulties by recalling and facing the traumatic memories of their past (or even future) lives.
Are there parallel existences to our own out there? If yes, can they be marked as a form of reincarnation, a well-known theory of re-birthing after physical death? Is reincarnation actually something much more fascinating, comprehensible only if we really open up our minds?
There have been a huge number of books written on the subject of reincarnation. Many researchers have dedicated their whole lives exploring it. Perhaps the most prominent investigators of this phenomenon were Ian Stevenson, a Canadian-born U.S. psychiatrist, who worked for the University of Virginia School of Medicine, and Jim B. Tucker, a child psychiatrist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the same university. They were researching mostly the cases of children who were able to recall some memories from their “past lives.”
The evidence they collected as well as many proofs gathered by other scientists and researchers are overwhelming. There are so many children and adults all around the world who were able to evoke some reminiscences from other existences. Amazingly, many of those claims were actually investigated and have been confirmed in great detail.
What’s more important, a large number of subjects permanently solved their emotional and mental difficulties by recalling and facing the traumatic memories of their past (or even future) lives. To me, it’s a very sad thing that the mainstream science still rejects to validate the concepts of reincarnation or parallel existences.
However, this article is not about the question whether reincarnation exists or not. In my opinion, there is definitely enough pretty reliable evidence supporting the assumption that there is a continuity of individual consciousness even after death. Our consciousness regularly extends from one existence to another.
The physical mechanism of re-birthing is mysterious. However, if we postulate that at the core of our personality lies a kind of hidden conscious energy, we may call it the soul, and when we take into account the natural law of the conservation of energy, we may conclude that our consciousness cannot disappear with the physical death. On the contrary, it must continue to exist in another form.
Some people recall details from several lives that had been lived concurrently, within the same time span. Moreover, there are cases of two or more people remembering the very same life, as though all of them had been the same person in one of the previous lives.
