*Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life's actions.* -Thanks Wiki.

This is today's topic. Reincarnation. I personally do not believe in anything, but I'm very open minded, and I do not judge people. Reincarnation is a cool concept to consider.

The thought of reincarnation is a fascinating one. I mean, think about it, if reincarnation were a possibility, we would have to watch our every action, every decision, everything! I mean, from what I understand about reincarnation, is that if a person is well behaved and treats others good, and are good themselves, they will be reincarnated in their next life as a being with good luck, and hardly any misfortune. However, if they are bad, and treat others bad, luck will not be on their side come their new life. 

This is where Karma supposedly comes in.

*Karma in Indian religions is the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect.* -Wiki

Basically, do a good deed, and you build up good Karma. Do a bad one, and good Karma gets taken away. The more good karma you have, the better your next life will be, and vice versa.

But this would also mean, that your life isn't your own. It's your previous life's life, and so on.

Some people also believe that they have experienced occurrences that dealt directly with reincarnation. Dreaming for instance. People would have dreams and not recognize themselves or other people in the dreams. 

Below is a quote from an article I read online, "Out of the Psychic Closet: Reincarnation Dreams".

"Reincarnation dreams are easy to distinguish from other dreams because of setting details. You and others in the dream will likely wear unfamiliar clothing and the dreamscape will appear old or futuristic or foreign in some other way. You'll have a sense of yourself as someone else rather than as the dreaming self you're accustomed to identifying in your nightly excursions."

And honestly this makes sense. I can also say that I have had these types of dreams sometimes. I don't remember much from them, just that I felt out of place, and didn't know who I was or anyone else. I could not recognize my face or the language I spoke. I thought this was just because the night before I was watching a foreign film, but what do I know?
The above image is the title image for the movie, "CLOUD ATLAS". It deals with multiple story lines of certain people who, through time, are connected. It is a very good book turned movie that I suggest people read & watch.

It took me a year to return. I apologize for that. Everyone has family issues, right? I will try to post regularly.

My topic today is actually about dying stars, which die every day. It is unlikely that we will see a supernova in our lifetime, due to their long life span, some millions, even billions of years. However, here is a tidbit for you. If you didn't know already, we have, in our galaxy, one Red SuperGiant that may explode to a Supernova Type II. Or, it may already have exploded and we just don't know it yet.
From our Sun, it takes light about eight minutes to reach us, since its only 93 million miles away. But the Red SuperGiant is about 640 lightyears away. (That's roughly, 9,460,730,472,580,800 metres [exactly] times 640.)
This Red SuperGiant is called Betelgeuse and it lies in the Orion constellation. It is a possibility that Betelgeuse has already turned supernova and we're just waiting for it to reveal itself to us. It could show tomorrow, or in the next 1000 years.
But with every death of a star, births a new. In all sorts of nebulae stars are being born, nurtured by its surroundings, etc.-Meiko
