If reincarnation were true, what happens when we finally reach true consciousness?

Who’s to say we just won’t be reborn as an drunken non-believer who has to go through the whole damn thing again?

  1. Because the cause of existence, according to most reincarnationists, is illusion as to the true nature of the world, in one form or another. These successive existences are not a punishment: They’re simply the result of being where we are at the moment. Once you outgrow that, you outgrow it.

  2. From the perspective of eternity a thousand years as a street cleaner would be like nothing at all. Especially if you could spend the next trillion years in utter bliss. Well, or something like that.

  3. From my understanding, Nirvana, the final stage of reincarnation, isn’t true consciousness. It’s the opposite. Absolute non-consciousness.
