Past Life Analysis
The Past Life Analysis website offers you a chance to find out who you were in your past life. I entered my birthday, and this is what I got:
I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Egypt around the year 1150. Your profession was that of a writer, dramatist or organiser of rituals.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Ruthless character, carefully weighing his decisions in critical situations, with excellent self-control and strong will. Such people are generally liked, but not always loved.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your lesson is to combat violence and disharmony in our world, to understand its roots and origins. All global problems have similar origins.

Do you remember now?
Interesting that I was a writer in my past life. Maybe I was the Pharaoh's Official Debunker of Legends and Hoaxes! Unfortunately, I remember none of it.

The disclaimer for the past life analysis admits that, "you should know that this software is only slightly more sophisticated than an electronic fortune cookie."

I got:

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Spain around the year 475. Your profession was that of a artist, magician or fortune teller. Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
As a natural talent in psychology, you knew how to use your opportunities. Cold-blooded and calm in any situation. The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your task is to learn determination and persistency. Youd should not allow to let misfortunes take influence on your strong will.

I don't need some dodgy site to tell me what I was in a past life. I already know.

I was Santa grin

Interesting! Changing the date by 5 days creates a similar profile, except the country. And in troduces an impossibility:

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern North New Zealand around the year 475.

northern New Zealand around 475 AD? But the first Polynesian settlers arrived on the uninhabited island not before 800 AD....

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern South Japan around the year 1700. Your profession was that of a shepherd, horseman or forester.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Person with huge energy, good in planning and supervising. If you were just garbage-man, you were chief garbage-man.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
You are bound to learn to understand other people and to meet all difficulties of life with a joyful heart. You should help others by bringing them a spirit of joy.

I'd still kiss Nettie if she had a beard LaMa raspberry

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern East Australia around the year 1375. Your profession was that of a preacher, publisher or writer of ancient inscriptions.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:Timid, constrained, quiet person. You had creative talents, which waited until this life to be liberated. Sometimes your environment considered you strange.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:It always seemed to you that your perceptions of the world are somewhat different. Your lesson is to trust your intuition as your best guide in your present life

What a coincidence, in my past life I was also a ruthless Egyptian....

OK, I was a female builder of temples or cathedrals in South Africa in the 700's. Looking at the entries before this one, I get the feeling that the program just places together certain stock phrases. Maybe I should have entered the date I was supposed to get born, I waited 2 days, and see if that makes a difference.

Putting in the day I was supposed to be born came up with the same entry. A female builder of houses, temples and cathedrals in modern South Africa born around 725. Maybe the first Gothis cathedrals were realy built in South Africa instead of France.

We hate to break the news to you, but you've had 165 past lives and this is the first time you lived past the age of two.
Posted by Joe  on  Tue Oct 09, 2007  at  03:29 AM
In all your past lives you were a marauding barbarian, most recently in 625 in the British Isles. In all of them, you killed the man who is your father now just because you didn't like his shoes.

Enough with the italics already!</i>

LaMa, you were to blame for that! And your dilemma is easily resolved: the 'scientific' and 'rational' historians are clearly wrong. Who you gonna believe, a bunch of guys who weren't even there or your own past self?

Either that, or you were a cute little moa chick.

Hm, looks like that attempt to fix the italics failed. Try again... Any luck?
Posted by outeast  in  prague  on  Tue Oct 09, 2007  at  05:00 AM
Nope.
Posted by outeast  in  prague  on  Tue Oct 09, 2007  at  05:00 AM
Italics should be fixed now...
