Reincarnation Case of Ida Noddack | Jacob Barnett


Past life Talent & Child Prodigies

Revealed by: Spirit Guide or Spirit Being Ahtun Re in a Ryerson-Semkiw Reincarnation Research Session, 2012

Article by: Walter Semkiw, MD


After seeing Jacob (Jake) Barnett, who is a math and physics prodigy, on the television show 60 Minutes in January 2012, I wondered where his genius came from.  In a session with Kevin Ryerson, I asked who Jacob may have been in a past incarnation.  Keep in mind that when I have sessions with Kevin, I do not tell him what my questions will be prior to the session.

Ahtun Re, speaking through Kevin, told me that Jacob was a woman in a past lifetime who was the first to hypothesize nuclear fission, also known as splitting of an atom. This phenomenon is the basis of nuclear energy, as well as nuclear weapons.

Further, Ahtun Re told me Jacob's name in this past incarnation and even spelled it for me.  Ahtun Re told me that Jacob had been Ida Noddack, a German physicist and chemist who indeed was the first to suggest that nuclear fission could occur.  In addition, she had been nominated for three Nobel Prizes. I later noted that a dramatic resemblance exists between Ida and Jacob.

If this reincarnation case is accepted, it demonstrates the following features:

Principles of Reincarnation & Understanding Past Lives

Physical Resemblance from One Lifetime to Another: A strong resemblance is noted between Ida Noddack and Jacob Barnett.

Past Life Talent: Ida's talent for physics shines forth in Jacob.

Change of Nationality and Ethnic Affiliation from One Incarnation to Another:  Ida was German, while Jacob was born in the United States.
