Exploring Reincarnation the Scientific Way

Let’s first understand the meaning of the word reincarnation. The word reincarnation is derived from Latin and means entering the flesh again. This also translates to changing forms.

Reincarnation is the philosophical concept that an aspect of a living being starts a new life in a different physical body or form after each biological death. It’s also called rebirth or transmigration and is a part of the doctrine of cyclic existence. 

It’s a central tenet of Indian belief systems like BuddhismHinduismJainism, and Sikhism. The idea of reincarnation is found in many ancient cultures, but does it have a scientific explanation?

In my perspective, yes. It does. Let’s explore.

When a living organism dies and is buried in soil, the particles — that make the body — are broken into many sub-atomic particles and get merged with the soil with the support of many micro-organisms.

The particles are transferred into various living organisms like a plant. Then, the plant grows into a tree and it’s cut for wood to make furniture. In this way, the furniture has the same particles that were once a part of the plant; and those particles were a part of the living organism that dies and was buried in the soil.

Quantum Physics and Law of Conservation Energy also explains a part of the philosophy of scientific reincarnation. Thus, reincarnation, if looked in a purely scientific purview, is possible and is happening every moment.

    1. Lovely comment. So, I am not saying that we are plants but rather we all are just a block of particles. And, yes, I believe in reincarnation in the purview of science. More based on science and less on mythology or spirituality.
