News: Remember a Previous Life? Maybe You Have a Bad Memory

News: Remember a Previous Life? Maybe You Have a Bad Memory:

This is a fascinating article that combines information from a few studies and evidences that people who remember "past life experiences" are in actuality distorting a bad memory somehow.

Excerpt:
In other words, people who believe they had previous lives are committing a source-monitoring error, or an error in judgment about the original source of a memory. (In this case, they are misremembering the source—themselves—of nonfamous names.) This is important because source-monitoring mistakes are the first in a sequence of events that psychologists believe lead to false memories.
