They say that the olfactory senses (the sense of smell) is the sense closest linked to memory. Go on eBay, or to a high-end antiques dealer. Find an item made a good amount of time before you were born that was hermetically sealed, vacuum packed or tightly packaged in some way. Make sure you are in surroundings of completely neutral smell with little or no wind. Open the package. The smell should hearken back to your collective subconscious or memory of a past life.

If you are successful in choosing the right item, with the right smell, you will have at least a memory flash, or likely a memory flood of years before you were born.

    I wouldn’t call this “creepy” but it is rather interesting.

    So wait. You’re telling us to spend hundreds of dollars for an antique peice of pottery, that may even be fake for all we know (it IS ebay after all), in an attempt to remember things we should’ve learned in History class? I’m sorry but this ritual reaks of fial.

    Isn’t this usually called ‘huffing’ just to get a high from random scents? Like opening a plastic toy in your youth and you took in that deep inhale when you broke the cardboard backing to the plastic cover?

    @ 7
    ………Can’t say i ever did that :P

    Coulda been scarier…would been better if they’d somehow incorporated like an example/anecdote/story into it, you know, made it more personalised…an account of it actually happening could have made it more creepy

    But I liked the concept, so overall, good pasta… :)

    I have to say, any mystical/creepy atmosphere evoked is immediately ruined by the phrase “go on Ebay”.

    i should fart in a plastic bag and put an old box or something in it and sell it on ebay just in case one of you tries this out.

    This would actually happen. People do it quite often actually to induce past life regressions. However it does lack the creepy.

    I sort of believe in past lives…but i’m not going to go sniffing around things to figure that out.

    i say let sleeping dogs lie; if i was meant to remember my past life then i would have been born with prior memories n’est pas?

    Surely the item would have to be connected with one of your own past lives- you aren’t going to get memories from someone elses?

    geeze people all the complaints about things not being creepy… Creepy pasta doesn’t need to be scary, just pasta about anything abnormal… I always really liked this one. I don’t really believe its true or anything but sometimes when I handle old things I can imagine the time period, this makes me think of that, but exaggerated and i can picture something of this sort being used by hypnotists when working with the past lives stuff. Its neat, you can really allmost believe the idea even though you obviously know its not real.

    @ 20: Tell that to the people who believe in past life regressions. Lol.

    @ 19: Not nessecarily. Sometimes it’s a mind over matter thing. People want so badly to be brought back to a certain time that they are. Sometimes it’s just the avaliblty for a connection, other times it’s imagination. Who’s really sure though?
