    I don't know where that crap of reincarnating into animals came from.

    There are several religions (including a main-stream religion like Hindu) that believe in reincarnation. Overall, the concept of after-life is existent (in some shape or form) in every religion. Even in Christianity, when were refer to Heaven and Hell...aren't we referring to afterlife?

    Yes, I read a bit about reincarnation about 15 years ago (as part of Karma theory). Some interesting thoughts, no self-contradictions. However, none of the books I read ever mention human reincarnating in animals or anything apart from human.

    I haven't seen any evidence for dualism and plenty of reasons to think dualism is wrong.

    What about the idea that the information that was contained within your mind still exists after you are dead, based on the concept of conservation of information.

    Would be good...but hard to establish a link between Hindu religion..and contemporary knowledge management methodologies

    On a serious note, if spirits do exist, there is no reason why they should not be able to sustain intellectual capital.

    I thinking more along the lines of how some psychics seem (based on the Sensing Murder TV show hahaha) to able to gather information about past events such as crimes. But are hopeless at predicting the future (e.g. lotto numbers). Perhaps the information about past events including our memories is conserved.

    I wrote on NDEs a while ago.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell
