I don't know if reincarnation is true, but I did give this this question some thought when I first heard about this kid some time ago.
If this is true, the only reason I can come up with for him remembering his past life is that in both lifetimes he was given the same first name.
This somehow triggered past-life memory recall. Kind of like how in our current lives a smell, sound, or voice you haven't heard in a long time can
bring back a rush of memories from your past. I suspect such a situation where two consecutive lifetimes have the same first name is a highly
uncommon event. Hence why only he remembers a past life and not the majority of us. If we reincarnate we likely don't share too much in common with
our previous lives and major overlapping things that would trigger past life recall simply aren't available to us.
This particular reincarnation case reminds me of the case of Arthur Flowerdew from the UK. He got a sudden rush of past-life memories after seeing a
television program on an ancient civilization (Petra). Here again a trigger was what brought forth the alleged memories.
Either that or those of us living today aren't usually reincarnated back to this planet. Only those who really mess up their lives badly come back.
Such as this kid who previously allegedly died violently in a war.
