Hello Fuzzy,

As obtuse and contradictory as this is going to sound, I have to be honest with you, and indeed everybody else here, and admit I'm not sure about Life after Death.
Back in the early seventies, a clairvoyant gave me a message from my father who had died a few years previously. The message concerned an incident that occurred during the one and only time I met my father (16 years after he'd disappeared from my life when I was three years old). Only two people in the world knew of this particular incident, my father and myself. The clairvoyant was a Canadian lady who had just arrived in England for the first time, so she most certainly had never met me before.
To say I was stunned and shaken by the message would be a classic understatement.
This incident with the clairvoyant occurred in a Spiritualist Church and at the time I felt sure that at last I had definitive proof of Life after Death. But this feeling did not last.
Amongst my many friends was a man (now dead some nine years) who possessed the most extraordinary psychic powers it has ever been my privilege to witness. His strongest ability was mind reading (usually most effective through psychometry). Over a period of more than twenty-five years I watched and studied this remarkable friend at work (he was also a spiritual healer), and one thing became clear to me: mental telepathy is a fact of life.
For reasons too long and too involved to go into here, I eventually came to believe that the message I received from my late father via the Canadian clairvoyant was actually an incident of mental telepathy between her and me. This, combined with smatterings of information about quantum physics and time travel (not the H. G. Wells kind!) led me to my present position of wondering if perhaps what is seen as evidence of reincarnation is actually evidence of mind reading across time.

As far as I know, there is no "proof of factual evidence of a telepathic link occurring between persons separated in time as well as space." It really is a matter of personal belief - and like all of my personal beliefs, is subject to change.

As I have mentioned elsewhere on this board, an elderly devout Christian lady once asked me if I believed in God. My answer was, and still is: emotionally, yes; intellectually, no.
Thinking about it, I suppose my stance on Life after Death and Reincarnation is much the same. I would like to believe in an after-life and reincarnation because I believe I could then begin to make sense of my Life here on Earth. But, frustratingly, my intellectual view of Life, the Universe, and Everything (for want of a better way of putting it) keeps getting in the way.

I do hope, Fuzzy and others, this makes some kind of sense.
