Yesterday, I wanted to watch my favorite program on TV, but I was some minutes early so I checked the other channels and came across a program which was called "Mein erstes Leben" = "My first life"
There they had put a girl in trance who saw herself living in an early 16th century castle. She described it vaguely, and somehow they were able to find a fitting place. (Wow. How many castles are there in Europe? And one fits a vague description about stone walls, placed on a stony hill above a forest and with some device to pull goods up to the castle? Amazing)
Then she described a town in the distance of ca. 10 km and there is one (Well, 12 km, but who cares. Isn't it more amazing, that somebody who believes to see through the eyes of a 16th century woman describes distances in the metric system?)
She describes the town. Timber-framed houses and a church. (Amazing. Like in almost all 16th century towns in central Europe.)
The church had a big round glass window (see above)
Some children were there playing a famous 16th century game (Wow. How good she possibly have known?)
I kept watching because I hoped they would add some skepticism to that story. And they did ask an "expert".
Who babbled something about science can't prove personal experiences.
Hey, who tells us that this girl wasn't simply lying?
But even if some people have these kind of "memories". But the first one I'd ask about that would be a psychologist or even better a neurobiologist (Yes, someone like me, with the difference that such an expert should actually work with human brains).
And the worst thing is that some people will buy that story and tell everybody who (doesn't) want to hear about it, that "they proved in on TV"
