Are you intentionally trying to derail this thread with your comment? Or just trying to be witty?
Depending on the definition of "past life" you use, your claim is false. Technically, our material composition has been derived from matter from the past. The atoms that comprise our bodies have not sprung into existence upon our birth, but have been re-organized from a past life, as it were to built each one of us.
You being a practical person, as you always tend to be on these types of threads, should agree.
So the concept of a past life is not as far fetched as you are making it seem. Can you try and contribute a little more next time

Some Bodily Malformations Attributed to Past Lives - Stevenson et al
Children who speak about previous lives usually begin to do so between the ages of 2 and 4. In a group of 458 such children the mean age for first speaking about a previous life was 37 months. Most of the children continue to make references to the previous life until the ages of 6 to 8. In a group of 135 cases the mean age of ceasing to speak about the previous life was 7 % years. The number and content of the children's statements vary widely. Most of the children, however, refer to the mode of death in the previous life. In a group of 419 cases,
74% referred to the mode of death. Violent death figured in these cases much more than in the general populations where they occur. In a group of 536 cases the concerned deceased person died violently in 274 (51%) of the cases. (The data given in this paragraph were first published in Cook et al., 1983;
information could not be obtained about some features.)

I think he is referring to the fact that our universe is a closed system. Therefore all atoms present at the time of creation are just recycled.

Very interesting stuff! I have read many a tail of children having substantial knowledge about past events, that they should in no one have any recollection.
I just want to add that their are theories of cell memory that can be transferred.
I apologize I do not have time to get into it, but just thought I would make this quick post to add.
