While science studies many things about memory,
this is not one of them. Science can tell us
all about the life of an individual, from
conception to death. After death science can
only tell us about decomposition(which is
cool, but not your question).
Reincarnation, the idea that the soul continues
into another life, involves supernatural
ideas which science can’t study. The
existence after death has intrigued countless
people, whether they believe in reincarnation,
heaven, or some other afterlife. Other studies
like religion, philosophy, and art explore these
ideas. That’s a good thing. The world is much more
exciting when there are many ways to understand
You may want to talk to your family about what
they believe happens after death and how they came
to believe it. What influences your thinking
about what happens when we die?
Thanks for asking,
So far as we know scientifically, people do not
live multiple lives. This would imply that
those people who claim to remember past lives are
either dreaming about something that never
happened, hallucinating, or simply lying. This
could be overturned of course should evidence of a
soul or something like that be discovered, but so
far all such evidence is ambiguous at best.
That subject is outside of Science.
There is no scientific concept behind it, but
there are things Science doesn't know. There have
been a lot of people who faked stuff about
previous lives. Even in our own minds, it's hard
to know if we are imagining things or not. But
it's interesting to think about.
