    Here's some scripture that explicitly mentions it:

    ... few are the beings reborn among human beings. Far more are those reborn elsewhere. Thus you should train yourselves: 'We will live heedfully.'
    It is from the Buddist scriptures, look here for the full text of this discourse:

    Quick update: Well, the little ones's almost 3 now and still weird as hell. Just prior to Nanna Gymea's passing, we had built her a motorized wheel chair. She's the one all the Aboriginals say the little one's the incarnate of. Any road, Nanna Gymea's chair still sits outside our door. Well the other day I says to the little one, "Wanna go for a ride?" She looks me dead in the eye, pats her legs and says, "No, I don't need that anymore." -:eek:

    Not this time, mate. He was just as surprised as I when she said it.
