Heard about Sumeria 20 years ago. They truly were amazing and the things they discovered. Astronomy etc. Seems like civilizations just loop, they disappear then reappear and discover the same things again until they destroy themselves.

Maybe reincarnations are similar.

The Sumerians were a pretty advanced society back in the day, so for those of you who like the spiritual conspiracies I think this is a good read.

The Sumerian's idea of reincarnation was something similar to the modern eternal return, however they did believe in an afterlife of sorts and they thought the soul could in fact go to another body after death kind of like our modern concept of reincarnation.
