Boy are we going to have some good laughs in the afterlife about some of these threads and what our thoughts were. :weeee:

Seriously though... I know that in our mortal existance we have choices to make. But perhaps those choices are part of the test to see if we are worthy of moving to the next realm, or plain of existance. Maybe after we pass on, we are judged, and if we have not learned enough good, and bad in order to fit into the afterlife, we are sent back against our will, to learn more.

I only speak in "what if's" because I have never been to the other side and come back. My father did when he had his first heart attack, but he would never speak of it.

Say, that reincarnation does in fact exist...Is reincarnation necessary?

And if so, what purpose would it serve other than to help us attain our highest self?

What more of a purpose would you need than to become a perfect soul?
Religious people fear going to hell. Spiritual people have already been there.

I believe that the Bhudda taught how to rid oneself of the 'wheel' in one life time. Without going into my books and correct me if im wrong (and some one will im sure) We can all reach nirvana if we follow the middle path.

This is actually a true statement. But you have to look at it with some basic intelect. Sidhartha himself only gained release because of the build up of good merit/Karma from his past lives. If you look at his teaching and his stories of his past lifes you may see that he had actually spent past lives as man, beast, in the hell realms, and the realms of gods. The Buddha did say someone can reach Nirvana in one lifetime, but he did not say which lifetime that was.
