My main source of information when making this film came from the book Life before Life  by Dr. Jim B. Tucker.

 

In this book, he shows and explains the research that has been started by Dr. Ian Stevenson and that is now continued at the  Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia, with Dr. Tucker as the director of the department.

The main focus of the research is to question the legitimacy of childrens past life memories.

Regardless of the spiritual nature of the believe in Reincarnation, the investigation is known for it's objective and speculating approach. As a reader, I found this to be very pleasant because I could form my own opinion about the cases that are presented.

I encourage you, as the reader of my notes and the book, to do the same.

1 introduction.png

This paragraph elaborates the open-minded approach of the research more but it also touches the mythical layer.

To speculate and to find truth behind these memories.

Where does fantasyland end and reality begin? 

32 33 attitude.png

The department and the publications on the subject of past life memories have caused a lot of controversy in the field of psycho- and neurological research. So far the research hasn't been able to collect facts which can make you question its credibility. 

It's too open-minded for science but too grounded for superstision, which I found to be an interesting tension.

With Christianity being the most dominant religion in the USA and it not supporting the believe in reincarnation, it only makes sense that many of these childrens memories never get picked up by the adults around them.

The most populair religions in which reincarnation is believed are Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. Which are mostly practiced in India and nearby countries.

The story of Patrick is interesting to me because it suggests that the wounds don't have to be fatal in order to turn into a birthmark. This gives me more options since the face is quite an uncommon location to result in death when compared to for example the torso.

Pigmentdisorders like viltiligo don't count since it changes over time.

48 49 remembering wounds.png

During my phonecalls with psychics I found that there is a common believe of carrying unresolved pain with us to our next lives through mental struggles. Maybe it's not that strange for them to become physical?

66 67 connection mental and physical.png

Though self-inflicted, an interesting physical symptom relating to stress and declining mental wellbeing is skinpicking.

68 69 connection mental and physucal 2.p

Opposite to causing blisters through hypnosis, there is also a more accepted practice called Psycho-cutaneous therapy in which skinproblems are cured through hypnosis.

This shows another connection between mental and physical which we can take into account when we speak of the mind creating birthmarks.

As a visual thinker I do wonder what this 'consiousness' looks like and where in the body it's located.

Is this what we mean by the aura that some people claim to see? And why do some people see it and others don't? Is it similair to why some people get birthmarks and others don't?

70 71 connection mental and physical 3.p

It's interesting to bring up why we should be reminded of our past selves. Was the suffering that lead to the passing not enough? One argument could be karma, but is that fair in the case of Patrick and his brother?

I expressed my thoughts on seeing a birthmark or birthdefect as bad karma more through the homevideo's scene  

72 73 connection mental and physical 4.p

Maybe a skinrash on my cheek? Or a wound from hot oil or falling? A bruise?

I consider myself to be agnostic.

Is this open minded enough?
