Magnetic Functional Resonance is one of the most advanced and precise instrument used in modern medicine today to observe the brain. It can be used to study brain activity and to discover which part of the brain is activated when a subject is talking or doing a mental activity.
There are many doubters and sceptics from the scientific community about past life regression. The experience is often dismissed as a metaphor, projection, symbolic representation, or false memory. This is because there has been no physical or scientific evidence to support the idea of past lives.
So this research used two different Magnetic Functional Resonance machines (Tesla 1,5 and Tesla 3) in two different Hospitals. It used different subjects; male, female, different ages, different hypnotic ability and beliefs, all experiencing a past life while being monitored.
The subjects were screened for amnesia, depression, panic attacks, alcohol or substance abuse symptoms in the last 6 months. They were selected for different ability to reach a level of trance state (Stanford Scale). Then the subjects were put in a Magnetic Functional Resonance machine.
A regression was started, recalling first a memory of the current life, then a memory of a past life going to the end of the life, and then beyond the death into the spiritual realm. All the images were pre-processed and analyzed using Statistical Parametric Mapping.
During the past life and the spiritual realm experience there was no activation of brain area used for storing current life memories or imagination. The part of the brain activated was the same in all the subjects and in an area associated with deep relaxation and or transpersonal experiences. This seems to suggest that for these subjects past life memories are not imagination or forgotten current life memories.
The research is still a pilot study and needs larger scale research before being published. The team I work with are currently looking for funds in order to continue this research.
