I hope that it is true. If afterlife is true, another of my hopes, then it seems most logical for reincarnation to be also true so that the soul, assuming that is what survives death, has an opportunity to evolve over many lifetimes from primative forms to humans and hopefully even higher beings.

I cannot say I believe this to be true in the sense that I know it to be true. I cannot even say that I have faith in its truth.

I just expect it to be true. I see nothing in science that falsifies it. And much like dark matter and mirror matter that open up such possibilities.

So I conduct my life as if it were true. If it's not true, I'll never know the difference as I will just cease to exist when I die- not so long from now. I'm more than half way there.

And also I look to all religions and even the occult for clues as to what is the logical way to conduct my life with that truth used as an axiom.
