In some religions there is a concept of regeneration or reincarnation. Soul of the person, they learn, after death goes not to paradise or to hell, and in new, absolutely other life. The regenerated king can become kozopasy, and the gardener — the crown prince, and will proceed so until the spirit doesn't pass all cycle of transformations put to him.
Certainly, most of people doesn't believe in reincarnation. However it is difficult to explain Joy Vervey's case with something to others!
Already at three-year age the girl entertained all the seven tall tales. The baby claimed that she remembers ten previous lives distinctly. Adults would consider stories by Joy inventions, be not they so detailed!
When to the girl there were five, journalists, scientists and mystics constantly tried to agree about an interview with her. Being guided by memories of life as the primitive person, the baby could spend experts to caves in South Africa. There were proofs later: a set of years back ancestors of modern people really there lived!
Joy remembered how she was a slave in ancient Egypt and the respectable matron at the end of the century before last. She lived in the 18th century in Africa and in Rome at the time of Neron. Moreover, in some old pictures Joy has managed to find last herself.
The most interesting happened when have brought the aged child of her former embodiment to the girl. Several hours of a brisk discussion later the elderly person recognized: unfamiliar to him hitherto the child also really knew much everything about him the late mother long ago!
