Until the mid-20th century, most people in the West either subscribed to the traditional Christian version of death or simply believed that death spelled oblivion. But something changed very dramatically: A new consciousness began to infiltrate the mainstream which resurrected the notion of rebirth. Theosophy was one of the primary agents in reviving the principle of reincarnation, a belief held by many religions and cultures down the ages, including Christianity in its early days. In this talk, Tim Wyatt analyzes how – despite the dominance of materialist consciousness – belief in rebirth continues to show an upward trend.
