Fair enough, but I got the impression (and I'll admit I could
be mis-remembering:) that it had something to do with the genes.
Or, at least, that's part of the subject that Aliera and Vlad were
discussing when they talked about regressing into past lives.

As I don't really believe in reincarnation, I can't compare the
Dragaeran Past-Life Regression to those of modern hypontists.  Though,
given the nature of the Dragaerans, it wouldn't surprise me that
they believed something that wasn't true, either.  (Wasn't it Sethra
who said that Aliera would deny that Easterners were on the world
before Dragaerans?)

Yeah, but Noish-pa's kick- at ss, and it wouldn't surprise me in
the least.  He's cool....:)
