We’re all familiar with the concept of reincarnation, where one has lived before in the past and has recall of it in the present. Well, if time is a continuum and there is no fundamental differences between past, present and future other than our limited, three dimensional perception of it, then perhaps some of us are living once again in the future as well as in the past. Instead of continuously focusing on what was, why do we not pay more attention to what lies ahead of us?
There is a substantial body of data strongly suggesting that some people, do indeed, reincarnate. Maybe those of us who are able to access future data (precognition?) such as gifted inventors from all aspects of creativity, are possibly perceiving what our future selves are seeing, hearing, feeling and tasting within another lifetime somewhere in time other than in the present? Maybe our consciousness is far more vast and comprehensive than we give it credit for? Could we be living at multiple times simultaneously and not even be aware of it?
Throughout my entire life I’ve felt that I was born way, way too early, Maybe several hundred to thousand years too early. When I was tested as a psychic by the late Dr. Thelma Moss at UCLA from 1969-1970, one of the other investigators on the study published on me, Herbert Eveloff, M.D., made a rather interesting and bizarre comment to Thelma after he finished an elaborate series of tests and evaluations on me to insure that I was “normal”.
Doctor Eveloff felt I was normal but that I was living several centuries too early. Perhaps the one thing I said to him in response to one of his many questions of me caused him to make such an obscure statement to Thelma. When I was asked what would I like to be doing if I could do anything whatsoever (not necessarily limited to the here and now), I responded that I wanted to be the captain of the Enterprise.
The doctor immediately and incorrectly assumed that I wanted to be a naval commander. I had to correct the doctor in telling him that the Enterprise I was speaking of was the one from Star Trek. By the way he looked at me after my response, I thought his eyes were going to come out of his head.
He asked me why I said this and I replied that if the human race has achieved this level of technological accomplishment, where real-time interstellar travel was possible, it meant that we’ve solved all of petty differences and grown into a wonderfully productive species whose primary occupation wasn’t that of tribal warfare (what was I thinking?).
In my book Aliens Above, Ghosts Below: Explorations of the Unknown, I talk about my strong emotional reaction to seeing a large-scale model of the Enterprise in spacedock during Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). There was only one other film in my life that had such an emotionally powerful effect on me. In fact, this movie from 1960, is what pushed me into science. The title of this particular film will be mentioned in another post, somewhere in time, into the future to be exact.
