    Have you ever thought of rencarnation. Like if you could be renencarnated what would you like to come back as? Maybe some type of animal or celebrity 🤔. If so maybe you would like to let other posters know and why?

    To start off I'm going to reveal what I would like to come back as. Well for me it would be a fly 🪰 I know it doesn't sound too exciting but the reason is I could fly around and listen to what my friends really thought of me when I was alive. Were they true friends or friends who would talk about me behind my back but were friendly when face to face.

    So why not reveal and why you choose as I said a celebrity, animal or something else. Have fun. Remember there are no right or wrong answers.

    Tiger Woods in his pomp.

    Excuse my ignorance but what is a pomp?

    A phoenix.


    I thought the basic tenet of reincarnation was that you don't get to have a say in the form reincarnation takes. I also think it applies whether you're cremated or not.

    5-Dimensional space whale for me. If the crack pots are right and reality is just the night-time hallucinations of such a creature then I'd like to see the universe from that perspective. Be fairly crazy to see 3 dimensions the same way we'd look at a hypothetical flatland. I'd settle for 4 dimensions but gotta dream big.

    A big cat - e.g. a tiger or leopard

    You don't have to be cremated to be reincarnated, you simply have to be dead.

    Apparently.

    A ghost. I'd gain some revenge on Effers

    If I'm cremated please let Elvis come back he can have my spot (instructions unclear)

    I actually believe in reincarnation but I’m not sure whether we have any choice in the matter. I think the spirit world is too full as it is and we’re just born into the same family we lived with just to clear issues we had with them.

    Do you only get to come back if you're cremated? Burial doesn't count? 😜 I'm deffo getting cremated - after organ donation. Pointless having a lifeless body rotting in the ground... full of life saving organs.

    Anyway - I digress - I'd love to come back as myself. But AWARE that it was my second coming. I've no real regrets - but I'd love to do it all again, but different.

    However, I don't believe that there's anything but nothingness after we are gone - so I won't be holding out any hope.

    Think your wish has come through because you're flying around my desk here at the minute but you better do your listening quick because you wont be around for long. Figure out what you'd like to come back as after I finish with you !!

    You wouldn't last very long if you were my friend as I abhor house fly's and the second I see them I get out the fly spray.

    Woody Allen was asked this question once with the answer being "Warren Beatty's Fingertips." I think there was a similar question asked on the RTE radio or something similar as in "Where would you like to be buried? " The show was going out live and some lad gave the answer as "up to me Bollxx in Bibi Baskin."
