FINDING MY RELIGION / Psychiatrist Jim B. Tucker studies past-life memories of children
Here is a guy risking his career by thinking... always a good sign. This sort of open-mindedness is good for society and the paper didn't look down on Dr. Tucker as so many would have. Some fascinating cases are mentioned and I imagine there are tons more in the book itself. I'm familiar with some of the excellent past-life work of Dr. Barbara Lane on Civil War reenactors who seem to harbor the souls of "returnees," which is also most interesting; the work with children seems slightly different as it is described here in that the kids start reminiscing at around 3 years and then usually forget it all before they hit double digits. Exciting stuff! I wonder why they forget. This is one of the areas that we need to understand in order to grasp the interconnectedness of the universe in it's entirety... and the real nature of what makes us human. Dr. Tucker speaks of quantum level goings on which is a decidedly forward-thinking approach. No doubt an excellent book. Interesting that the article is in "Finding My Religion," but I guess that makes some sort of sense given the nature of the subject.
