About This Quiz

Reincarnation is an idea shared by many ancient religions as well as several new age movements. It's an intriguing idea. The human race has been around for an eye blink in terms of geologic time, far less time than certain insects and fish, but unlike most other races, humans have multiplied our population many times over in just the last few decades. The world's population has grown by 4,736,752,237 people since 1959. That's just 60 years. It has grown by 7,214,576,923 since the year 1600 when the world population was only about 500,000,000. 

This means that the likelihood of being reincarnated from before the industrial revolution are pretty slim, but still possible. Of course, there is the possibility that reincarnation's rules aren't what we imagined, and that the human population going up is commensurate with the animal population going down and that many of us used to be insects or squids, or, more intriguingly, that human souls split apart and become reincarnated as multiple people as the population goes up.

Either way, this could make even more awkward the possibility of running into an ex, since theoretically, one would not only need to worry about exes from this lifetime but all of one's exes from every lifetime one ever lived. Bear in mind that gender roles have changed a lot over the centuries, and depending on who you were and who you were dating, the relationship could have been fraught with the cultural mores of the age, or doomed because of religious prohibitions.
