History In My Head

Ever since infancy I have had a deep knowledge of things way beyond my years. At school I never needed to study history or religion because I just knew it anyway, and even though I did not study I always came top of the class in these subjects. When I saw the John Wayne version of the Alamo when it was first released, I was almost out of my seat yelling "No...it was not like that at all" in the final scenes, yet at that time I had  not been taught anything about that particular bit of history. If I visit some ancient place, a castle or a battlefield, I feel very much at home there and can feel the past very closely but I am left cold by todays fast-paced electronic age.

Does anyone else feel the same?

Apologies for this late response peeps! <br />

In response to Lady Nikolena, I think you may be correct. I have undergone regression on several occasions over a number of years and although the information received was jumbled, once I had recorded and sorted it into a time-scale, it made perfect sense with no overlap in time and a decreasing number of years between incarnations as follows:<br />
<br />
Oldest identified - about 2000 years ago - Roman - name Severus. Killed in battle. Young age (30 ish) <br />
<br />
1000 years later - Arab Trader working Mediterranean area (no name given) Died of heart attack aged about 60 (Very old for that time) <br />
<br />
500 years later - working on the construction of the great Cathedrals in France - Reims, Chartres etc. Killed in a drunken fight with a Templar. Aged about 30.<br />
<br />
250 years later - Incarnation hidden. (Cloak of darkness)<br />
<br />
125 years later - Wealthy Engliish entrepreneur woking in import/export busines and living in Belguim or France. Large family. Died of Tuberculosis aged 30 to 40. <br />
<br />
75 years later - Member of Hitler Youth and then a German soldier in WW2. Committed suicide on Russian Front, Christmas Eve 1943 when surrounded by Russian tanks and no chance of escape. <br />
<br />
Immediately after WW2 - reborn as I now am.

That's very interesting. I too yearn for a simpler, more connected life. But, I LOVE having the availability of technology...LOVE the internet/my laptop...and access to volumes of material.

Yes, I get that feeling and a feeling of guilt, mostly when I see anything from WWII. Other times, too. But It's at It's worst for WWII.
