Past Lives of the Rich and Famous by Sylvia Browne is a fascinating book which contains some very interesting stories of how notable people lived both in this age and centuries ago. Each story is very engaging with real characters and scenes from previous lives described in vivid detail.

Browne discusses Elizabeth Taylor who lived 47 times before. Taylor was Anata of Babylonia. In the 1500s, she was a member of a Benedictine convent in Switzerland. She lived as Marie Lilliane and died at 89 years of age. Browne explains that specific memories of past lives are on the other side. But are they?

The story of Mother Teresa is equally fascinating. Browne relates how the Mother Teresa lived in the person of Leah during the time of Christ. Leah came to know Jesus Christ through the Apostle Luke. In addition, she attended the Sermon on the Mount. Mother Teresa lived through her 54th and last incarnation according to the author.

Browne’s recitation of the lives of Dr. Martin Luther King provides equally fascinating reading. The book describes how Dr. King navigated eight lifetimes on earth before resting for eternity. The book takes readers through the past lives of other famous people like Amy Winehouse, Steve Jobs, and Elvis Presley.

The author discusses some scientific basis for these statements by referring to cell memory. Probing cellular memory is an area where scientific knowledge is evolving. In addition, existing tissue for such things as blood stains needs to be accessed in order to recreate DNA profiles.

Some of Browne’s statements refer to people who lived at the time of 33 AD or perhaps were blood relatives of Christ Himself. Events like the Great Fire in Rome 63 AD have erased the Roman record of Jesus Christ.

There may be remnants of Christ’s DNA on the Shroud of Turin. If DNA traces could be found on the Shroud of Turin, the DNA could be dated to the time of Christ. These aspects should be addressed by Browne.

In addition, the crucifixion itself was an event bathed in blood. If blood stains could be recovered from Golgatha Hill, these stains could be used to create a Christ-like human form in the laboratory. The implications of this event would be
very controversial for the Judeo-Christian world.

Sylvia Browne’s book has some stunning ideas that could bring great controversy into the public arena. Perhaps these notions should be tested and advanced. At some point this century, more will be known and decisions could be made to move forward to put these ideas under microscopic examination.

Browne’s notions could be put to the test in other ways. For instance, there would have to be specific burial plots of two people thought to have identical past lives. Samples of the DNA would have to be tested after exhuming the bodies. If the samples matched, the claims might be proven. Such an experiment would require the approval of medical science due to the ethical and moral issues inherent in conducting such tests.

Past Lives of the Rich and Famous by Sylvia Browne is a fascinating book with huge implications for medical science if any of her theories on cell memory stand the scrutiny of scientific analysis, as well as the ethical and moral dilemmas such experiments might entail.

The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria.
