Wednesday Word: Metempsychosis

Metempsychosis - noun. From the ancient Greeks comes the idea of metempsychosis, or where the soul, after death, transmigrates to another human or animal. It can be thought of as a synonym to reincarnation.

A fun starting point for learning about is, of course, on Wikipedia.
