"Yep I've read that one. And another one of his "Your Past Lives".

Yeah, I actually picked up a copy of that book and tried to read it since it was written by one of my favorite authors. It's about how to "remember" your past lives, which I'm very skeptical about in the first place.

It's rather ironic that one of the people I most admire bought into the whole reincarnation thing when I find it so distasteful. I'm hoping to God it's something else and not what a lot of people believe it to be.

There are whole lot of people though that love talking about it. I don't get the attraction? ? Who the hell in their right mind would want to leave heaven and come back here? I'd have to be dragged back kicking and screaming.

I've watched the youtube video's of Michael Talbot also. Hey Andrew, for the record, Michael Talbot was gay. He was a Science writer. He was born the same year as me. He died in 1992 of Leukemia at the age of 39.

Three books of his that I've read twice are Mysticism and the New Physics, Beyond the Quantum, and The Holographic Universe, which I think was his masterpiece. It's ironic that Michael Talbot died only a couple of months after The Holographic Universe was published. It was like he had accomplished what he was supposed to do and was allowed to cross into heaven. He did what he came to do.
