I don't know if I necesarily believe in reincarnation, but it could explain some people's affinity for earlier eras. I personally am drawn to the 60's/70's era, and before that, the late 1800's. I just have this obsession, you know how certain eras draw you, and others have no appeal? I absolutely hate the 80s. And the 40's/50's. I don't know why, i just dislike them. Who knows.
