3 Supporting Facts about Existence of Reincarnation
Science confirmed the existence of consciousness outside the physical body. The investigation of near-death experiences contributes to exploring these paranormal phenomena backed with scientific experimentation. The perceptible science has its limitations and the events beyond its limits are considered as the hypothesis that requires innovative scientific principles to explore in detail. Few facts are supporting the existence of reincarnation, but it couldn’t explain its hidden laws.
The inability of Science to Explain Reincarnation
Parapsychological and paranormal investigations continue with the research of life after death and the existence of consciousness outside the physical body as I mentioned in the mysteries of the astral body. With the advanced technologies and the present understanding of science couldn’t connect the dots. So, that made it fail to explain how reincarnation takes place and is noted as pseudoscience.
Such is as in the case of pranic or reiki healing. The existence of the energy can be verified as biometric energy but couldn’t explain its nature, properties, and medium of transfer.
Reincarnation is the concept in philosophy to explain the journey of the soul. Most of the events that happened in nature will have an explanation in science and the rest lacks suitable theories for the explanation. The laws of science are the laws of nature, some are revealed and the rest are hidden, but it does not mean that these laws do not exist.
Hence, presently these phenomena are more dependent on the philosophical explanations and interpretations of the ancient scriptures that require the validation of their results. Physics and philosophy are interrelated, where the philosophy uses intuitive principles with the mentally coordinated data that becomes evident only through the interaction of the subject. Thus couldn’t verify objectively.
The nature of relativity and quantum mechanics are not apart from the concepts of philosophy that show the mysterious behavior of nature. But this pure science has nothing to do with reincarnation directly, yet it probably has an explanation in the concept that transcends space and time and the presence of virtual reality.
1) One of the irresistible facts is that the child spontaneously talks about their past life experiences. Even though, the result could be a coincidence based on possibilities yet more oriented towards the existence of reincarnation. These studies are denied by the scientific authorities as the research requires solid facts with open resources. This does not mean the non-existence indeed couldn’t support with the scientific basis. (See Why Children Talk about their Past Life?)
2) People believe in enlighten personalities. They are endowed with superhuman qualities and their level of consciousness could not be perceived by ordinary humans rather than experiencing it. The concept of enlightenment is the factual reality that is verily associated with the concept of reincarnation. This cannot provide solid facts rather than the enlightenment itself. The world has passed through many enlightened personalities from ancient times. Recently, the life and teaching of enlightened personalities like Ramana Maharshi, Narayana guru, etc. lived in the twentieth century gives a clear understanding of life and its purpose.
3) The philosophical texts (yoga texts) support the existence of reincarnation and have their own explanation. Their principles are used to support various forms of yoga. The concepts of yoga become apparent when indulging in yogic practices which could not deny this phenomenon. The experiences with the mystical kundalini are supported by the theories of philosophy that aptly hold up with it and could be validated.
The yogic texts say that if one couldn’t attain perfection through kundalini spiritual practices in his lifetime, then his effort will be carried to the next life cycle. Kundalini takes its own time.
Enlighten ones are the examples that with less effort or without effort in the present life they could reach the culmination in spirituality excluding the possibilities. It states that they have gone through arduous practices in their previous life. However, this does not mean that one cannot attain perfection in this lifetime indeed which requires quite more effort.
