Past Lives: The Reason We Don't Remember Them
There is a reason that paranormal things are not able to be proven: the same reason that ghosts always make noise in the next room (but not the room you're in), and ghost boxes and psychics don’t tell you the lottery numbers. We cannot, as humans, know empirically that life exists after death, because to do so would ruin the whole reason we came here: to forget about the millions of lives that came before, to forget that death is not to be feared, and to experience emotions on the physical plane that will feed and grow our souls. We can get hints of the truth in paranormal things, and we can believe in them, but we cannot know them scientifically and absolutely. To do so would mean people leaping to their deaths in droves, which would go against everything we came here to do.
