If you could be reincarnated as anything...

...what would you be?

I've been learning about the Tibetan Buddhism, and I think its very interesting.

This question assumes that you have enough Karma to actually make it to that form.

Personally, I'd like to try life out as a woman. Either a woman, or a dolphin.

What would you be if you could be reincarnated as anything you like?

I think I would want to be reincarnated as a turtle since I will live a very simple existent and be protected by my hard shell.

The only thing I would be afraid of as a turtle is being killed to become some human's soup.

A bird or a domesticated cat with great owners.

It also would be interesting to exprience life as the opposite sex (female), but I would rather be a bird or cat than a human again.

i would not be reincarnated because it is an illusion as you know from reading Tibetan Buddhism

The point of all this is to end the cycle of rebirth, which is illusion, isn't it?

A housecat...does it get any better? No worries except whether to chase the string or sleep some more, chicks go ga-ga over you, and an empty box is all you need to entertained for hours on end. Sure there's the whole licking yourself thing but no deal is perfect right?

Ah yes, ART. However, we assume for this study that you can comeback with whatever you want, and it's not an illusion...

Hmm, I'm not ready to escape the wheel yet; I like it here, and that limits my karmic range considerably, probably putting all of the following out of reach:
- Myself with full memories (there would be some changes, oh yes.)
- Ron Jeremy at the beginning of his career
- Danni Ashe at the beginning of hers.
- Minor member of the house of Saud circa 1960 wouldn't be all that bad either.

Three guys are biking on a windy mountain road. They come around a corner, and WHAM! they are hit by a semi and all killed immediately. They're chillin' up in heaven, and God comes to them and says, "Hey guys, you know, I know I kinda screwed you on the whole life thing, so I'll make you a deal. I'll reincarnate you for another lifetime as whatever you want." The first guy says, "Gee, I've always wanted to know what it would be like to fly." So God turns him into a falcon, and he flies off. The second guy says, "You know, I've always wanted to run really fast." So God turns him into a cheetah, and he runs out of there. So the third guy says, "You know, I was always kinda a loser when I was alive, you know, bad with the ladies. I guess I'd really like to be a stud." So God grants him his desire, as well.
A few weeks later, God wants to know how the three guys are doing, so sends St. Peter out to check up on them. St. Peter comes back, and God asks him how the guys are doing. St. Peter replies, "Well, I finally found the first guy soaring around the Adirondacks. The second guy is running all over the place in the plains of Africa. The third guy? oh yeah, I think they just put him into that new development going up in south Jersey."

sorry, first thing that came to mind. I think I'd like to be either a Perigrine falcon, or a dolphin.

My personal beliefs on reincarnation espouse the fact that life is a ladder, with humans occupying the top rung, closest to enlightenment. Therefore, once we have reached human consciousness, we cannot move back down the ladder (well - I suppose some major fuckups could)

So my hope is that I return as a human, and learn more than I have on this trip.

I'd like to think that I've learned enough to be able to not be reincarnated.

But I'm pretty sure I won't have that problem, so I guess I'd come back as some sort of predatory bird.....preferably one protected by the government.....
