Bigfoot’s Museum…

Now that we’re completely addicted to the bliss that is the incredible new TV drama Past Life based on M.J.’s book, let’s get back to the  inspirations, history, reincarnation news, weirdness, and general wonderment that we know and love on this blog:

Bigfoot’s Museum: Loren Coleman on his new cabinet of cryptozoology curiosities

For half a century, my friend Loren Coleman has been obsessed with unusual animals, many of which may not exist at all. Loren is a cryptozoologist. He studies hidden and unknown animals, and the mythology, urban legends, folklore, and culture surrounding them. Sure, Bigfoot, Yeti, and Nessie are the big names, but there are countless others — the Jersey Devil, the Thunderbird, the Mothman, to name just a few. Loren has written more than a dozen books on the subject and posts daily at the Cryptomundo blog, all from a firmly Fortean perspective. Does he actually “believe” in Sasquatch or sea monsters? No, because belief, he has said, “belongs in the providence of religion.” He just tries to keep an open mind in order to accept or deny evidence based on examination and investigation…

Play a Past Life Game

And now for something different… play  The Reincarnationist game – it’s fun 🙂


Reincarnationist Q&A – Author Wendy Webb

Thank you Wendy Webb, author of THE TALE OF HALCYON CRANE, for answering this week’s Reincarnationist Q&A –


What is your most marked characteristic that you believe could be a hold over from a past life?

My writing ability.  Writing comes naturally to me, and it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.

What is your principle defect that you believe may be inherited from a previous incarnation?

I have an irrational fear that I’ll fall overboard when I’m on a ship in the middle of the ocean. In an odd coincidence, my mate, photographer Steve Burmeister, is rather obsessed with the Titanic. He knows names, dates, facts, every little thing about the ship and the night it went down. Were we among the people who died in those freezing seas?

Which of your favorite heroes do you think you could have been and why?

I don’t think I was anyone famous, but I do have an affinity for certain time periods and peoples. Early Native American, Victorian England, and post-World War I Paris all seem familiar to me.

What three people from history would you like to have over to dinner for a discussion about reincarnation?

Edgar Cayce, Jesus and my brother Randy, who died in 2004.

What do you think happens when we die?

The spirit leaves the body, (I do believe in ghosts, after all) but beyond that, I really don’t know.

When you come back next time, who (or what!) would you like to be?

I like the ride I’m on right now, so I’d wish for it to continue.
