BEFORE SUNRISE – 1995 – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112471/
Jesse: Do you believe in reincarnation?
Celine: Yeah. Yeah, it’s interesting.
Jesse: Yeah, right. Well, most people, you know, a lot of people talk about past lives and things like that, you know? And even if they don’t believe it in some specific way, you know, people have some kind of notion of an eternal soul, right?
Jesse: OK, well this was my thought: 50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there’s, like, two million people on the planet. Now there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? ‘Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth’s time. You know, so at best we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking… I mean, is that why we’re so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized?
Celine: I don’t know. Wait a minute, I’m not sure… I don’t…
Jesse: Yeah, hang on, hang on. It’s a, it’s a totally scattered thought. It… This is kind of why it makes sense.
BEFORE SUNSET – 2004 – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381681/
Jesse: Do you believe in, like… ghosts or spirits?
Celine: Uhm, no.
Jesse: Ok, what about reincarnation?
Celine: Not at all.
Celine: That sounds… that sounds terrible. No, no, no. But, at the same time I don’t wanna be one of those people that don’t believe in any kind of magic, you know?
Jesse: So then, astrology.
Celine: Yes, of course!
Jesse: There we go, right!
Celine: I mean, that makes sense, right? You’re a Scorpio, I’m a Sag, so we get along.
