Well, surely some of Indias' culture and beliefs are bizzare and just because they have knowledge of it doesn't mean it isn't twisted. Every Religion has passed through this twisted, 'overboard' phase. I much prefer to approach this scientifically and seperate reincarnation from any religious taint. Regarding juvenile trance derived past life recollections, the devil or some malevolent extradimensional entity(bad spirit) would no doubt in my mind, be overstepping his bounds in doing what you say, although there is room for the possibility that the mind when trancing is merely tapping into the Jungian universal mind. This I will admit.
