Prof. Jim Tucker of Univ. of Virginia, medical school, affirms reincarnation possibility

Here's a short video featuring Prof. Jim Tucker, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK9KvP4ZuAE, 6 min. Great to see such a strong affirmation of reincarnation from a researcher of a top USA university. Of course, his work will not be easily accepted by mainstream science in the USA (and the West in general).

From around 5:00 in the video, Prof. Jim Tucker says:
I don't think that we can just map these cases on to a mainstream materialistic view of the world. I think what they seem to indicate is that consciousness is not limited just to the physical brain but can continue on after the brain dies. I think there are reasons, other reasons, to consider that consciousness should be considered separate from the physical world, that it's a separate entity. And it's not necessarily dependent on the physical world. In fact, the reverse may well be true, that the physical world is dependent on consciousness.
So, in these cases this consciousness has continued after the brain died and for whatever reasons has shown up again in somebody, another person that was born. That doesn't mean that that would typically happen but it is what appears to happen, in our strongest cases anyway.
