yep, good point. like we talked about on a thread about multi-armed gods recently, on the 'whole track' there should have been all sorts of bodily forms quite different from bipedal anthropomorphic ones.Why be earth centric? It's a big universe with probably lots of bodies with a brain scattered around. You can't have science fiction stories without them.
I better get off this thread - I'm getting "buttered all over the universe", a phrase I heard in scn.
another of the known problems with supposed past life recollections, is people rarely imagine being a different gender or ethnicity than they are in this life. any spiritual approach in the 21st century that gives consideration to such phenomenon but doesn't try to do some of the obvious separation of the wheat from the chaff in matters like that, is unscientific and non-rigorous, and just repeating known illusory errors from the past.
