Thanks, I'll look into the Glenn Ford case :thumbup:

Ah quite. Well, magnetic monopoles aren't solely in the province of string theory, or should I say, M-theory.

Anyways being a statistical theory it could never be absolutely observed
ORLY? :ask:

Well, perhaps we'll not go there as this is not a discussion about M-theory. I'm sure Rome Existed for example would be happy to discuss its (lack of) merit with you if you opened a dedicated thread on it. Wink wink. Nudge nudge.

As for the child I can't find his name anywhere (and I looked), they must be protecting his privacy
Unfortunately this ethical concideration also makes the story quoted rather anecdotal as we have no corroborating facts to check up on. Not a feature uncommon in the context, unfortunately. Well, at least we have Glenn Ford now.

What it seems, at least what this hypothesis states, is that for some reason some children from ages three to seven, can recall past events, and learn at a much faster rate. Then they completley forget everything
Like imaginary friends from childhood, maybe? Or are they also, in your opionion, evidence for rebirth? Memories of friends and relatives from former lives? Has it really been consistently tested if the children who exhibit this "much faster rate" of learning retain their ability to assimiliate knowledge and skills in later life or not? And for that matter, how much faster is "much", really?
