Humans are superior biological machines created by God and the angels. At a basic level, the way a human operates is similar to a computer. The brain of a human is a biological processor while the brain of a computer is a mechanical processor (CPU/hardware). The function of the soul to a person is analogous to the function of software programs to a computer. Data from an old computer can be copied to a new computer. In the same vein, God can take the soul of a dead person and install it to a new body.
- The Soul
The soul of a person is a mass of information, including software programs with preeminent features programmed by God, and it contains all of the information that the person has experienced in all of their lives (this life and previous ones). Since the very first humans appeared on Earth, every time a person dies, God retrieves the soul and has it reincarnated into a new body. God uses a type of wave, called a super brainwave, to transmit souls. The speed of a super brainwave is infinite and no material can stop it from traveling. Super brainwaves are transmitted by superior technological equipment which resides with God. With our science and technology today, we are unable to read information from souls. Thus, we can only gain insights into how the soul works via the activities of our brains.
A soul is installed into the brain of a human fetus in the fourth month of maternity. According to medical studies, the brain of a human fetus grows quite complete during the fourth month. The Qur‘an of Islam also mentions that God gives souls to human fetuses in the fourth month of maternity (Hadith 3208 & Hadith 1 & 2643).
The human soul is comprised of three major components: the consciousness software program, the spirit software program, and the repository of past lives‘ information (RPLI).
The Consciousness Software Program
The consciousness software program‘s mission is to manage the operations of the brain. After being installed in the brain, this program helps the brain perceive and process information, introspect, think in the abstract, and use language. The consciousness software program distributes and forwards information received from five senses and extrasensory perception to the spirit software program or the subconscious. When it arrives in the subconscious, it then contacts the RPLI and pulls the related information into the central brain for the consciousness software program to process and yield results. The consciousness software program also saves the results it processed into subconscious memory. It can also read the information it previously saved in the subconscious memory for its use (via the function of recall). In summary, the operation of the consciousness software program is very complex; we simply cannot understand all of its functionality. At a lower level, we can understand the consciousness software program of humans similar to the system operating software of a computer such as Microsoft Windows OS or Apple Mac OS. Without this program, our brain cannot operate normally.
The Spirit Software Program
The spirit software program‘s function is to create the various human emotions. The eight basic emotions that the spirit software program creates are pleasure, happiness, anger, love, hatred, sadness, desire, and fear. These emotions are grouped into three pairs of opposite qualities and one pair of neutral qualities.
Pleasure, happiness and non-couple love are three prime emotions inclined toward good. These can be individual emotions. When these emotions are activated and combined with one another, they create other good moods such as love between parents and children, siblings, friendship, kindness, altruism, mercy, and lots of other positive emotions.
On the other hand, anger, hatred, and sadness are three prime emotions inclined toward the bad. These can be individual emotions. When these emotions are activated and combined with one another, they create bad moods such as hostility, wickedness, selfishness, envy, pessimism, frustration, and lots of other negative emotions.
To better understand, we can visualize the way the spirit software program works as similar to a television screen which has only three primary colors (red, blue, green), but that, when playing, projects thousands or millions of colors onto the screen.
Desire is an emotion that has the ability to resonate with other emotions. It can help elevate good emotions, but it can also result in a magnification of negative emotions. A person‘s desires can be regulated by knowledge, will power, and especially morality. With good morals, excellent knowledge, and strong will one can regulate his desires in order to achieve the most appropriate and best possible outcome for his life.
Fear is a defensive emotion. Its function is to watch out for the needs of one‘s personal safety.
Fear can diminish good intentions as well as extinguish bad intentions. In other words, when our consciousness recognizes a danger, fear will appear automatically. However, fear can be controlled and regulated by people with a stable mind and strong will.
We know that human emotions are extremely complex, but ultimately it boils down to each emotion having its own characteristic properties. Rationality can control almost all human emotions, but rationality cannot conquer couple love. Couple love is a special emotion because it incorporates all eight emotions in the spirit software program. Among all types of relationships, couple love is the most intense. People are more willing to scarify for their lovers than for their parents, children, siblings, or friends.
We can recognize that most activities of the soul, especially the spirit software program, are based mainly on receptions from the five senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste) through daily interactions and activities. From this varied input, the consciousness software program processes and connects with the spirit software program, creating different moods. This process repeats many times and, as a result, establishes unique temperaments for each of us.
Because of this special spirit software program, humans have become the most advanced creatures on Earth.
Repository of Past Lives’ Information (RPLI)
The repository of past lives‘ information (RPLI) is an important component of the soul. The mission of the RPLI is to store information about a person‘s previous lives. To better understand the RPLI, we first need to differentiate the RPLI from the subconscious.
The subconscious stores all of the information that a person experiences from birth to death. An ordinary person can easily retrieve the information stored in his/her subconscious memory (through recall). There are two exceptions, however—remembering past lives and child prodigies, which will be explained later in this chapter.
The RPLI stores all of the information that a person experiences in all of his previous lives. This information includes knowledge, feelings, thoughts, and actions. In the first life of a soul, God equips the RPLI with only some basic information for instinctual operations. When a person dies, God collects all of the information recorded in the subconscious and puts it together in one package (like a computer folder). Each life of a soul is stored in a separate package, and all of the packages are installed into the brain of a fetus. This becomes the individual‘s RPLI for his current life. The central brain cannot retrieve information from the RPLI directly, however. Rather, in order for this information to feed into the consciousness software program, there must be leading information and it must go through the subconscious. Leading information is the information received either from the five senses, introspection, or extrasensory perception, and is related to the data stored in the RPLI. Because many humans have knowledge from previous lives available in the RPLI, there is a common phenomenon in which many people know more than they have actually learned in their current life.
In summary, God created the RPLI to give humans opportunities to re-use all of the knowledge and experiences gained in their previous lives for the purpose of assisting humankind in the evolutionary process.
- Phenomena Related to the RPLI
In this section, we‘ll examine the following phenomena: inborn talents, child prodigies, geniuses, remembering past lives, homosexuality and bisexuality, inborn temperaments, holy maternal love, and feelings of familiarity (déjà vu and love at first sight).
In the history of mankind, there have been many people who were born with exceptional talents in various subject areas, such as music, acting, literature, painting, etc.A talented person is someone with excellent ability in a certain area, particularly one he has not yet studied or practiced enough to have feasibly achieved said ability under normal conditions. This can be explained by the existence of the RLPI. People with inborn talents only need to have gained minimal knowledge related to their vocation in previous lives, and this knowledge then serves as leading information to activate the RLPI. This process allows the consciousness software program access to the related information in the RLPI.
In order to use the knowledge in the RPLI effectively, we need to, as early in life as possible, align our current vocation with vocations that we have pursued in our previous lives. We also need to update our knowledge in the visioning field and frequently contemplate the knowledge we have acquired.With practice, we will promote our talents to the fullest and realize success in life. Of course, new souls do not benefit from this practice since the repository of their past lives is virtually empty.
Oprah Winfrey (born 1954) is a talk show host and media producer. Winfrey is the first African-American billionaire and is considered the most influential woman in the world. When she was a little girl, she already possessed extraordinary talents in communication, and with this ability she become successful in her career.
Joanne Kathleen Rowling (born 1965), author of the famous Harry Potter fantasy book series, is another example. Before writing the series, she was a single mom living on government welfare. Today, her fantasy book series are liked by millions of readers, of all ages, all over the world.
She has received many awards consecutively. As of 2012, her book series has sold 450 million copies.
A child prodigy is a purely scientific phenomenon that relates to the consciousness and the RPLI. This phenomenon is created by God to send humans a message to enable us to better understand Him and the soul.
For ordinary people and geniuses, all the data from their previous lives is stored in the RPLI. However, this is not the case for child prodigies. The way God makes child prodigies is as followed:
First of all, God selects some souls that, in their past lives, have had excellent knowledge in a certain field, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, linguistics, biology, etc. He then filters only the knowledge related to their specialty and installs this information in the consciousness of a fetus. When an ordinary child is born, there is little information in the subconscious (apart from the information fetus receives while in the mother‘s stomach, such as when the mother talks to the fetus or plays music to it). However, in the case of a child prodigy, at the time of birth there has already been a huge mass of knowledge installed in his subconscious. Thus, when a prodigy is just a few years old, his knowledge is far greater than other children his age.
Wendy Vo (born 1999 in Charlotte, North Carolina) is a Vietnamese-American. At 2 years old, she could speak Vietnamese, English, Spanish, and Chinese. At 3, she could speak French, Japanese, Indian, Russian, and Cantonese. At 4, she learned Portuguese and musical theory, and began getting acquainted with musical instruments. At 6, she knew how to compose music, and at 10 she had composed more than 40 pieces of music. Forbes Magazine 2008 selected Wendy to be one of 10 representative teenagers of the world. Obviously, Wendy is considered to be a child prodigy.
Ainan Celeste Cawley from Singapore is also considered a child prodigy, in chemistry. When he was 6 months old he could walk, and at 1 year of age he could talk about complex matters with adults. At 3 years of age he could draw multi-dimensional objects, including objects with 100 sides. At 7, he passed the O-level examination in chemistry. At 9, he obtained one more O-level certificate in physics. He could write and balance chemical equations, draw molecular structures, knew chemical properties, had knowledge of radiation, played music instruments, etc. He can learn very quickly, and is now studying lectures at the university level.
Geniuses are people who have transcendent intelligence, and whose works have a great influence on human civilization. To ensure the intellectual development and survival of humans in the age of the population boom, God specifically brings forth geniuses.
Similar to the phenomenon of child prodigies, before creating geniuses, God selects souls that have outstanding knowledge in certain fields, such as mathematics, physics, astronomy, biology, chemistry, etc. He then provides these souls with new important knowledge that is suitable for each developmental stage of humankind. God installs this knowledge, together with information from previous lives, and all of the information is kept in the RPLI of a genius. In the early years of a genius‘ life, the new knowledge in his RPLI would be quite vague if it showed up at all. When the brain structure is fully developed, the knowledge the genius has received through learning or experience becomes leading information which brings forth the related knowledge from the RPLI to the consciousness. Consequently, geniuses create transcendent works, and the knowledge revealed in these works is completely new to humans on Earth. There have been many prodigies in the past, but true geniuses are rare. God creates geniuses when appropriate, but he does not determine the time in advance.
Albert Einstein (1879–1955), a German-born theoretical physicist, is an example. People recognize him as the father of modern physics. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921 for his contributions to physics, including the theory of relativity and his discovery of the law of photoelectric effect. He was voted by the NY Times to be ―the man of the century.‖ He was the greatest scientist in the 20th century and the most prominent intellectual in history. Albert Einstein is considered a genius.
Another example is Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), a Spanish painter and sculptor. Picasso is considered one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is one of the top ten artists among of the 20th Century according to Times magazine. Picasso is considered a genius in the arts.
Remembering Past Lives
As mentioned above, the human soul is immortal, but the physical body at this time cannot be immortal like the soul. Therefore, to assist humankind in the evolutionary process, God continuously allows souls to be incarnated in new bodies. This process is called reincarnation.
Besides normal reincarnations described above, there are a few special cases of reincarnation that involve remembering one‘s past life. This phenomenon is somewhat similar to the child prodigy phenomenon. Reincarnation that involves remembering one‘s past life is also a message from
God, helping humans to understand Him and how our souls work. Usually, people who can remember their past life did not have a long lifespan in their past life. The reincarnation process of these people is somewhat different. God installs information about the last life into the consciousness of this life—instead of the RPLI. Therefore, when one is born, his consciousness is already filled with information from his past life. His thinking and perceptions remain as if he had never died. We can think of these reincarnation cases as ―dual lives‖ or ―adjoining lives.‖ In these cases, the information package of the last life has been installed into the subconscious storage unit, into the same place where the information about the current life is stored, forming one information package for two lives.
Binh Lac Bui is an example. He was born 10/6/2002 at Coi Village, Yen Phu, Lac Son, Hoa. Binh, son of the Muong family. When he started to talk, he insisted that he was Tien Phu Quyet Nguyen, son of the Kinh family, born 2/28/1992 in Vu Ban town, who had died 10 years before Binh was born. Binh wanted to come back to live with the parents of the dead boy. After relating many pieces of evidence to prove that he was actually the dead boy, he was accepted by the parents of Tien as their dead son restored to life.
Similarly, Shanti Devi was born on 11/12/1926 in Delhi, India. When she was very young, Shanti Devi told her parents that her name was Lugdi Devi, that she lived in Mathura town, and was married to her husband Pandit Kedernath Chowbey, with whom she had a son named Nabanita Lall. People started to believe her after determining that what she said was correct. She even know the details about how Lugdi hid money under her bed before she died. Therefore, they accepted Shanti Devi as the soul of Lugdi Devi, who died 10/4/1925 and reincarnated into Shanti Devi.
Homosexuality and Bisexuality
Homosexuality is a phenomenon that happens all over the world. Homosexual men are called gay, and homosexual women are called lesbian. Bisexuality refers to people who are sexually attracted to both men and women.
Homosexuality is not disease, as homosexual people cannot change who they are, nor can medicine or medical procedures. This is because homosexuality is rooted in the RPLI. When God created the spirit software program, he made one version for men and one version for women; they have different affection frequencies. Usually, a male soul is incarnated into a male fetus and a female soul is incarnated into a female fetus. However, there are many exceptions, which result in homosexuality and bisexuality.
The RPLI stores all the information of previous lives that a soul has experienced, including information about sexual activities, love activities, sexual habits, sexual feelings, etc. All of this information is stored in the RPLI, and it is revealed gradually as the child grows up.
A gayperson is born when a female soul is incarnated into a male physical body.Gay children show their feminine side as they grow up, and their sexual orientation will show more clearly when they reach puberty. Usually, this is the most difficult time for gays because their sexual desires and emotional needs start to surface in opposition with their physical body. When gays are in love and have sex with each other, in their mind, they think they are women.
A lesbian is born when a male soul is incarnated in a female physical body; lesbian children gradually show their masculinity. Like gay men, when lesbians are in love and have sex with each other, they always think they are men.
Bisexuals are similar to gays or lesbians: their souls and physical bodies are not in sync, meaning a male soul in a female physical body or a female soul in a male physical body. However, bisexuals are different from gays and lesbians in one aspect: they are new souls.
As pointed out above, the spirit software program of males and females are different in terms of affection frequencies. This difference gradually forms different love and sexual habits between men and women. All of the love feelings and sexual experiences from previous lives are stored in the RPLI; therefore, it would be very difficult for a person to adapt to their strange new feelings. For bisexual people, their souls have only lived a very few lives; thus, there are not too many of these experiences and feelings stored in the RPLI. For this reason, bisexuals can get married, have children, and have sex like ordinary people for a period of time; after a while, however, these sexual experiences will activate the RPLI. They then realize that their sexual orientation and desire are not really what they are experiencing. Finally, they decide to leave their husbands or wives to seek out their true feelings with homosexual partners. However, a few bisexuals decide to remain in asexual relationship with the same gender or opposite gender for all their life.
In the case of Ma Tin Aung Myo, a girl born on 26/12/1953 in the village of Nalthul in the north of Myanmar, she is a lesbian and can also remember her past life. Ma Tin Aung Myo identifies herself as a male Japanese soldier who died in the war, and has decided not to get married because she thinks she is a man.
There is an old Vietnamese saying: ―cha mẹ sanh con trời sanh tánh,‖ which means: ―parents give birth to children but God gives them their temperaments.‖ This is in fact correct because parents can only give their children a physical body, while God is the one giving them a soul (temperament). It is often difficult to understand temperament formation in our children; children often show unique temperaments that are unlike anyone in the family, or even in their extended families. Even with lots of effort, parents can rarely change their children‘s temperaments.
People have realized this for a long time, but there has not been a satisfactory explanation of its causes. Why is it that some children show at an early age that they are dutiful to their parents, docile, studious, obedient, brave, courageous, lofty, and cannot stand wrongdoing, while other children are shy, fearful, pessimistic, sad, and lonely, or even stubborn, hot-tempered, aggressive, lazy, and feisty?
We recognize that children reveal their unique temperaments earlier than what they obtain from their parent‘s instruction. Temperament can be explained clearly when we consider the concept of the RPLI. In order for humans to evolve, God has every soul live many lives via reincarnation; thus, the temperament is already well established in previous lives and is stored in the RPLI. Therefore, the formation of temperament in children or adults largely results from the RPLI.
Emotional perception is among the first things a child perceives in his life when interacting with parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, and schoolmates. This emotional perception serves as leading information to activate the RPLI. The related information in the RPLI is revealed to the consciousness software program, this process, in addition to parents‘ teaching, gradually forms the temperament of a child.
There is also another old saying: ―Non sông dể đổi, bản tính khó dời,‖ which means: ―It is easier to move mountains and rivers than to change one‘s temperament.‖We see many changes in the world, but we hardly ever see a person changing their temperament. Some people are kind and generous, while others are brutal and hot tempered; some are shy and fearful, while others are wicked and dishonest. Their temperaments rarely change throughout their entire lives.
As a parent, if we realize our children have poor temperaments and try our best to teach them but they still do not change, we should not blame ourselves, because their nature has been established previously.
Holy Maternal Love
Throughout their lives, good mothers love, sacrifice, and care for their children. These mothers consider motherhood a holy duty, and the ultimate happiness of their life. In past societies, most women took very little interest in public duties; they mainly did housework and take care of their children and their homes. In feudal times and before, if one‘s husband died young, the wife rarely remarried. Instead, she devoted her time to raising her children and living with them and her grandchildren until the end of her life. The emotional experiences associated with maternal love are repeated life after life; thus, we often see that mothers love more and are more willing to sacrifice for their children than fathers. And in return, most children love their mothers more than their fathers.
When mothers—especially mothers with old souls—look at their children‘s faces after delivery, no matter how good-looking/bad-looking and healthy/disabled the child is, their love manifests strongly.
This special emotion does not just arise from nowhere; it is accumulated in the RPLI through many lives as a mother. However, not every mother has such great love for her children. There are cases wherein mothers, after delivery, throw their babies in trash cans, public toilets, on streets, etc. What causes those mothers to be so heartless? The reason is that these mothers have new souls, and they were not taught properly while growing up when their personality was forming. These souls are first-time mothers. Therefore, there is no information related to maternal love in their RPLI. As a result, they throw their children away easily.
Feeling of Familiarity—Déjà Vu
There are times in our life when we travel to a place we have never visited before—a house, a street, a village, or even a strange country. These places are not necessarily beautiful landscapes or luxurious houses, or even magnificent streets or a modern developed country. These places could be ordinary places, but upon arriving we have an intense feeling of familiarity and closeness in our heart. Many people say that they have experienced this feeling many times in their life, but they cannot explain it. These is called ―déjà vu,‖ it comes from the RPLI.
Most of us are not aware of who we were in our previous lives, or where we lived and what we did. Although our consciousness does not know this (except in cases of reincarnation where previous lives are remembered), all the images, memories, emotions, etc. of one‘s previous lives are stored in our RPLI. Therefore, the places that we visit today may be where we used to work or live in our previous lives, or places that impressed us with wonderful memories. Many people, when visiting a foreign country for the first time, have a strong sense of familiarity and closeness with that country. They eventually decide to live there for the rest of their lives. This could be because they used to be a citizen of that country in their previous lives.
Love at First Sight
In order to find the cause of love at first sight, we first need to know the difference of the two concepts: ―an ideal lover‖ and ―a lover in dreams.‖
An ideal lover is a product of our imagination. For example, when a girl thinks of her ideal lover or husband, she thinks of a handsome, rich, intelligent man or a nice, gentle, faithful guy. Similarly, when a young man thinks of his ideal girlfriend or wife, he envisions a beautiful, gentle, sweet, well-mannered woman. These are examples of ideal lovers which are drawn from personal preferences.
On the other hand, a person who has a dream lover cannot clearly identify the figure, face, or personality of their lover or spouse-to-be. This is because the information about the dream lover is stored in their RPLI and their consciousness cannot reach this section without leading information.
For example, in his previous life, a man had a very beautiful wife and the love they had for each other was very passionate and deep. They were living happily together when the husband died young, causing such a great shock to the wife. She became mentally ill for the rest of her life.
As another example, in their previous life, a man and a woman were deeply in love with each other, but for some reason they were not allowed to be together. Later, the woman killed herself and the man was very regretful and missed the woman until the end of his life.
Finally, as another example, in their previous life, a man and a woman were deeply in love with each other, and they swore they would marry and love each other forever. Unfortunately, both of them were killed in an accident.
There is similarity between all three examples above: these people were deeply in love with their partners in their previous lives. And of course, when they reincarnated into this life, the emotion and images of their lovers were still deeply engraved in their RPLI. Despite lots of opportunities for them to have love relationships with different people, they usually do not have feelings for them. This is not because the people they meet do not meet their standards, but because the people they meet do not have personalities, gestures, or appearance similar to their lovers in their previous lives. Then, one day, they meet their previous-life lover, and both immediately recognize each other by the other‘s familiar personality, gestures and/or appearance, as this is leading information which activates their RPLI. From then on, the love they previously had for each other surfaces to form an intense love, and even they themselves do not realize how deeply in love with each other they were in a past life. Love stories of similar scenarios are often called love at first sight.
In addition, there are other cases related to loving emotions kept in the RPLI, but these are one-sided love. For example, a man adores and loves a woman, but the infatuation remains one-sided (unrequited love). Although his love is not returned, his feelings for this woman are still very intense and enduring. He would provide anything she needs and is always ready to sacrifice for her without asking for anything in return.
We know that love at first sight is a case where two people fall passionately in love with each other from their previous life experiences when they luckily meet again in their present lives. However, with one-sided love, only one side has passionate love from the previous life, while the other person has nothing to do with this love. In the present life, the appearance, gestures, and personality of the other person is similar to that of the previous lover; thus, the RPLI is falsely activated and leads to one-sided love.
