Does a belief in reincarnation perpetuate its continuation?
To be reborn in the flesh over & over again.
I don't believe anyone has yet really proven having had a past identity except maybe in sessions of Scientology & other belief systems of a relative nature.This can be of the imagination
Nobody has reported back from heaven or hell either.
I sincerely believe I have recalled having been of other identities in the past but the substance of these no longer exist only being now of the imagination.
I don't see though the purpose of continuing on & on being reborn in the flesh. I can often enjoy the fleshy experiences but how the body can become sick,injured, disabled, old & die or struggle in the pits of society can be nasty.
Its really only a meat product of unique design but continues staying a bad habit requiring always to survive.
LRH seemed excited about how he believed he discovered life must survive.
So what. Forced to survive no wonder teenagers can rebel as I did careworn about always repeating usually the same old shit.
