Reincarnation.. abit to mystical for me. I do however think that once the Singularity has occured (which who is to say it hasn't already) then yes we will be able to go back and "live" lots of kinds of lives. If you wanted to go back and see what it was like to live in WWII and been on the beach of Normandy when the US invaded then there will be a simulated program for that.
I could give lots of examples of times in history it would have been so neat to have lived through and the main thing is this, once we have indefinite lifespans these mesely life expactancies we have now will be laughable in the long run and worth it to spend 70 years in a simulation just to experience a few important events, and even with that said, everyone learns different things through our all unique experiences in life so in this short simulation every glorified event and terrible experience you had through "someone else's shoes" would help you to learn more in the end result.. when you die/snap out of it.
Well, past as in the linear way that the human mind automatically views things. As in, dying in "2012" and being born into a life that we would consider to be the past right now, less technology, etc.
