Wisdom of ages

Who were you in your last life? Try the Past Life Analysis to reveal your soul's true history.

My diagnosis:

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 North Japan around the year 775.
Your profession was that of a sailor or shoemaker. Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Such people are always involved with all new. You have always loved changes, especially in art, music, cooking. The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your lesson is to learn discretion and moderation and then to teach others to do the same. Your life will be happier if you help those who lack reasoning. Do you remember now?


The English Proverb of the Day from Mythfolklore.net; or, since I can't post javascript, you can just look at the entire calendar of proverbs.

Try Sage, the oracle at Nick Bantock's official site.

The exact origins of the Sage will probably never be confirmed. However, given the location of the find, it is more than possible that the author or authors were members of the Knatii, a nomadic group of mystics that inhabited the area during that period.

Given the difficulties of translation, and the often obscure and ambiguous tone of the answers, the scroll's contents weren't released until 1977, when they appeared as an academic paper. This paper entitled The Ala-Dagh Sage, was given to a distinguished audience of linguists at the Salzburg Theosophical Symposium.

In 1999 a new (and more poetic) translation of the Sage was commissioned, and the following electronic version is one of the outcomes of that enterprise. When consulting the Sage it is important to remember that its wisdom is only fully revealed when the questioner accepts the sense within nonsense.

Chica! I think we were the same person in a past life. I got the same results exactly. I even did it twice. What's up with that? Kindred spirits or broken program?

The links were great. Thanks for all that great info.

Cheers!

Well, you know that old bit about how reincarnation can't be true, because there are so many more people in the world now than ever before, so where did all the new souls come from? Well, clearly, souls just divide from time to time to reproduce, and once upon a time, we were both that Japanese man. Simple.
