In keeping with the Halloween theme, and to better ascertain the views of Skadi members on the paranormal, I decided to post a poll on the 'typical' categories of phenomena transcending the known physical world.

reincarnation for me...I also adhere at to the theory of metagenetics(that souls are recycled through ones blood line or the statis of a people held in high regard by the person who died)

:D I must be a balmy one!...I chose all of them...he he.. I have an open mind to all possibilities and the potential power we & the universe holds.

I forgot to tick the Other option. I also believe in nature spirits...Literally!.. (see my Thread on Blutundboden about my mysterious garden Land Wight throne in my hedges :lol ). Also UFO's. Sending & receiving spells (both positive & negative). The evil eye (some people are born with this..they seem to just look at something & cause bad luck to others/situations).

With the subject of reincarnation...I personally think the way different people are drawn to specific periods of history is indicative of The other life/s previously lived. Now.. to whether this is/was acheived through bloodlines or perhaps our spirits are actually random (perhaps even skipping centuries & cultures, between another/each physical birth)...I do not know.

Perhaps every 'theory' and 'belief' is just a concoction (much like any singular religion) by humanity to make sense of an existence we will never truly understand.

I wouldn't say that I believe in any of them. However, three of them I consider plausible enough that they might be real. They are telepathy, telekinesis, and reincarnation.

The idea of inter-generational rebirth was not unknown among our ancestors. Evola however, with the early Hinduists, saw it primarily as "recycling" of various parts of the soul, and a very chtonic phenomenon. ;) I wonder if it is possible to combine the Solar way of spiritual integrity and free choice of post-mortal destiny with the inter-generational idea, ie. the soul choosing to be reborn in the same bloodline.

I am not sure if it's meaningful to talk about individuated integrity and assume being reborn further down the generation. If a soul can climb up to a higher plane of existence, or to prop it with a scientific term, a higher dimension allowing to oversee the three basic dimensions plus Time like sitting on a mountain and take stock of the valley down below, if you would restate the valley by Time Stream, why would a soul be incapable to reborn in the past or again its own body and perfecting itself throughout continious reincarnations in its old physical existence till he achieves the goals he has set forward to be truely a ruler in his own fief and then break away to the undiscovered country and never return, since his vocation has been fulfilled and nothing is to be added.

None.
...Becouse i'm materialist and so on... (The Universe consist not of illusions (i hope ;)) but of matter! There exists no miracles that are not proved by Sciense. :)
In spite of what ever is there, these disputable phenomena should be investigated without prejudices)
And more..:D I believe in this - :battap ..A very true believer :D

:chinrub OK... I've yet to see all those things.

Anyways, I've a question about reincarnation : Does it works in the same racial group, or, is reincarnation anti-racist and gives one the "pleasure" to test all the races?

I believe in all of that except for time slips - I truly believe that time goes only forward as we perceive it and going back in time is not possible.

As for reincarnation I believe you are reincarnated along the same family line (if your soul opts for reincarnation of course.)

Meowse, suppose you and I are standing outside a door. You go inside and find you are in another dimension. Suddenly, the door opens and you walk back out. But now, I am 90 years old and you have seemingly come from the past. For the participant, all travel is forward but for the observer, all time travel would come from the past. Am I wrong?

Dr.Solar Wolff that axiom is indeed very true...brilliant scientific conclusion on the phenomeon of time fabric and time slips

I believe in all of them and have experienced and seen all of them.

As to your query about reincarnation, I always figured it depended on what your karma could afford ;)

I also believe in metagenetics. In truth, I think reincarnation is probably a mess of possibilities and is not always pure. Bit of memories and personality floating around, sometimes coalescing into "you" again.

Interesting. Could you share some of your experiences?

I'm openminded about the possibility that remnants of personalities persist in the collective unconscious and may resurface in the living. That's not to say I'm a believer, but rather agnostic.

I can't actually say I believe in any, so I've voted none.
If I would ever have the pleasure dealing with some of these phenomena I would probably not believe it or either start doubting my sanity.

:ffear:I don't rule out ghosts, spectres, and apparitions. I don't rule out telepathy etc. I have never experienced ghosts and spectres but I have experienced clairvoyance and what you might call telepathy. But the experiences are obscure and unimportant.

I probably shouldn't launch into this, since it basically amounts to attacking other people's religious beliefs, but as a scientist, I feel I must.


None.
...Becouse i'm materialist and so on... (The Universe consist not of illusions (i hope ;)) but of matter!
I don't think there is necessarily any conflict between believing this and believing in ghosts and whatnot — if one is open-minded enough to admit the possibility of material ghosts, for example, then the supposed contradiction goes away. A ghost doesn't have to be immaterial. It is a very common misconception that ghosts must be immaterial — it even makes its way into dictionaries sometimes. There is no decisive proof one way or another on whether ghosts are material, though there is evidence to suggest their materiality.

A conflict between science and spirit only exists when people misunderstand one or both of those.


There exists no miracles that are not proved by Sciense. :)
Now that's just patently false. It might be true that there exist no miracles that cannot eventually be proved by science, but it is most definitely not true that science has explained all things. But I'm starting to get a little queasy talking about science as though it were more than an instrument and actually had agentive capacity in itself — I'm really not comfortable with abdicating my power as a man to some vague, incorporeal, omnipotent, higher power — like Science.



In spite of what ever is there, these disputable phenomena should be investigated without prejudices)
Agreed. So we should not deny the possibility of their existence until we find conclusive proof that they do not exist. But remember that while it is easy to prove that a thing exists, it is next to impossible to prove that it does not exist.

But at any rate, I chose Other in addition to some of the listed options. I also believe in the existence of various "supernatural" corporeal beings, such as angels, gods, and demons. And I suspect that other such beings exist (like trolls or elves or dwarves or centaurs or dragons), though I am not a firm believer in them. I do however believe quite firmly that there are various animals that exist but that do not exist on this planet — I suspect things like dragons and unicorns might be among them.

Telepathy is true i dont know how it works or how you use it but many times now i have had the experience of starting to think about a person out of the blue and seconds later receiving a phone call or an email or even knokcing at my door. sometimes i have also had dreams in which i foresee the future, one time i dreamed that all my friends would visit me from school and i was worried about that i dont know why. the next day withouth a reason all my friends showed up at my door in the same way i have dreamt.

so yes i totaly believe in paranormal staff (x-files theme.wav)
