So I was surfing the net, when suddenly I got to thinking... Is it possible for someone to reincarnate as an inanimate object?

I recall the movie "The Love Bug" which involved a sentient VW Beetle, and hinted that Herby (that's what the car was named) may have been a person reincarnate as a car.

Or better yet: is it possible for someone to reincarnate as a character in a work of fiction?

Could a person in theory live a life in this realm, die, and then be reborn on the other side of the paper--as a character in a newly-written book, or film, or even painting?

This reminds me of the old series on the television called "My mother-in-law the car."

Also the movie "A Cool World."

And the music video, "Take On Me."

Other than fiction no I don't believe we could go back to unconscious once we are conscious.

I see your point as to that. But you do think that someone could come back as a character within a work of fiction?
