Spiritual World; Palestine; Reincarnation
"For many Africans," says Carol Beckwith, "the spiritual world is still very much alive.
"For the Betsileo people of Madagascar, for instance, there seems to be no boundary between the living and the dead and, when we were talking to them, we could never be sure if they were talking about people who were dead or alive.
"While we in the west seem to have lost that immediate sense of the spirit world, for many African societies it is still a vivid part of their daily lives."
