What do you think?

What a wonderful thought that you could go back in time, but you may not reincarnate as a human. Purhaps coming back as your own pet cat, or your own next meal. Personally I would think that your karmic energy moves forward in time, this energy dictates your next rebirth.

There's no way of knowing for sure if we can, of course, but I've wondered this myself.

I'd love to be in a 20's speakeasy with a flask of gin on my garter, LOL.

From another thread on here.. "It is only your human perception of earth time of being in the present that moves forward always, but what if you were in fact moving backwards? What if you are not even moving in any motion? Perhaps you are moving through something. But all you know is that you are moving, and things are changing. Forward is a silly word. Future is a silly word. Humans with all their words. There is no word that can translate really to what I am trying to tell you. When it comes to time you won’t know which way you are headed, you can go any direction, and anywhere, because when it comes to time, there is no such thing as direction, it all exists simutaneously,

Hi Stevo,

You may be right. But I personally think that for us humans, time has always existed or at least existed as a sane perception of time. Even from the very beginning of our history we needed something to measure and make sense of time since it's an invisible abstract dimension, so we used cycles as measure sticks (eg the sun in the sky) . We still use cycles to measure time but now on an atomic level. So I think in order to maintain a sane frame of mind when we live here in our physical world we have adopted a system that our mind could understand. I am very happy to see that the time on my clock moves forward and what has happened before the present moment belongs to the past and cannot be relived. Otherwise I would quickly go insane :-)

Agreed Boson the brain needs time to function in a linear fashion but that doesn't stop all timelines existing simultaneously.

Stevo,

Sounds good to me what you just wrote. I tend to believe that too. I have noticed that believing in a mystery is a challenge at times. Yet, mysteries is what makes life interesting.

Imagine a film strip cut into all its frames, imagine each simultaneously existing frame is a still parallel reality and there is a light that shines through one frame at a time in an order. Reality is similar, all times exist now just like the film frames and the brain focuses on one parallel reality after the next giving the illusion of movement and time.

Absolutely.

The only reason people think they incarnate in 'time' order is that they search for past lives by going back in time (in a more or less linear way). They then arrange the lives according to their dates in history, not the order of incarnation.

And as someone mentioned above, the over-soul is timeless and is fully capable of multiple simultaneous incarnations.

Yeah Wstein, I think the oversoul/higher self etc splits its awareness into many 'times' at the same 'time'.
