From the Paper:

"Reincarnation has long been a religious belief. It is the belief that the soul continues and the person will live again after being reborn into a new body. People who believe in reincarnation generally take it on faith that the phenomenon occurs. Science, however, is not far behind in the quest to prove the existence of reincarnated souls. Biological data has been extensively researched and offers the physical evidence as proof of the correlation between reincarnation and biology. It is the most compelling evidence so far and goes a long way in advancing the belief that the soul can be reborn into a new life."
