So you were always conscious?

As far back as I can remember.  I remember my first thought, so this is life!!  This tells me that there was something and I didn't think of it as life.

My two sense/since/scents/cents:

I think that, in SETH SPEAKS, Seth does a very good job in explaining it. All we have to do is reverse-science consciousness according to Seth.

Ever wonder when our memories start? Most people say when they were about two years old. Could it be when a word is understood and spoken is when our memories start?

Not in my case, I remember the thought and moving shadows.  I assume the hospital staff.  My mom told me when I was two days old I was trying to hold the girl next door hand.

But I asked if you were always conscious, not conscious just during your life.

And, I said I remember there being something before life.  So the answer is yes.  I would hace to have a conscious in order to remember something bing there before life.

The standard line among those fundamentalist Buddhists who go around trying to prove rebirth is that to catch past-life memories you have to question very young children.

I have always felt that this is a cop-out, since there is no particular reason for it that I can imagine that holds water.  Also, of course, children can be impressed with false memories through their desire to please adults, so the very questions can lead to the answers the questioner wants and the child henceforth thinking it was a real memory.

My view is that the very rebirth process would wipe out any past-life memory, period, so there is no way using such approaches to learn anything.  Only if memories are retained in some non-physical (non-brain) way could things be otherwise, and, stories aside, there is no reason to think this and plenty of reason to think not.

You don't sound very sure.

I live in Thailand. My girlfriend is an ardent Buddhist. She prays to him with chanting and a yoga style lotus position to meditate for some hours every day.She has no memories of a past life. I asked her about this and she said " what a stupid question "  She believes that she will come back after death.

I think that's a little excessive, even for a monk or a nun.  I'm not sure she would identify what she does as praying -- you may have a little translation problem there.
