Thoughts on reincarnation What do you think the possibilities are?

Only human? Or multiple forms like animals, insects, microorganisms, plants, rocks, etc.
And can we be iterated in more than one form and/or "place" (universe) at the same time?
Too long a question to put into the Ask Mike box, so I thought I'd ask it here. Thanks.

Would you really want to come back as a rock? I spose it's an interesting variation on being 'stoned'.
I believe animals 'spirits' are all part of a big melting pot and get randomly distributed among all animal life and are inter-connected, but we are the main players. Animals, scenery, etc are the affects.

We have access to all the knowledge being experienced by each of our "incarnations" as each seperate one is unfolding. We see it as a time line from past to future but potentially experience everything at once.
Some Theoretical Physicists are now describing the Universe as having as many as eleven dimensions which we only experience 4 of, the 4th dimension being time and space and some even say thought. One of the theories being kicked around is that there's another version of us or several versions occupying these other dimensions. These dimensions each vibrate at different frequencies or wavelengths so we don't have access to them via our 5 senses. We're out of sync I guess you could say.
Even Einstein suggested that since the time/space continuum is curved a straight line intersecting through the curve at two spots would connect those two spots or events. A potential basis for time travel? And where does a neutron go exactly when it blips in and out of existence for a split nano-second while colliding atoms together? Is there another one of us on the other side (another dimension) experiencing it from there?
Lucid Dreaming, and Astral Traveling are interesting too. Who is having the experience if there isn't a physical body? And how do we explain two people meeting in a dream (lucid? astral?) and comparing notes, having been in the same place in the "dream state". Exploring consciousness is an amazing journey.
Past and future lives or multi-dimensional beings living across time? It's challenging to comprehend our multi-dimensional selves from a singularity. So all we have is our own consciousness to explore and travel upon to find our own answers.
In any event it appears we have a choice as to whether we play or not, whether we vacation or not in another dimension before jumping in to another "life experience". And since there are billions and billions of stars with planets circling about them in an ever expanding universe whose to say there aren't myriad choices what kind of life-form we even take.
It boggles the mind and frees the soul.

Well, I think that if you had been a happy rock, you would have said the same: ”Would you really want to come back as a human?” My guess is that we are talking here about perspective and, further, my point is that each and every level of existence is the best way to experience life.
Maybe some of you are aware of the fact that dolphins have been ”declared” (kind of human arrogance to behave like the all-knowing scientist) non-human persons. Maybe they think that their existence is the best of all, or maybe not. How should we know? As long as we do not cross the frontier of language into a realm of shared experience, even between species, a kind of mind melding, we can not be sure of the way of other beings feel.

But I am not convinced that this way is the real one to keep in touch with them.
I think that we are already in touch with them, even if we are not aware of this fact. Consider life as a computer game. You move your character and you are aware of him. He is part of you, but you do not know if he is aware of you. I think that all the characters in this game called life are not aware of their higher self that moves them. Maybe there, your departed one is by your side while you are still playing this game.
Peace and good wishes...
