MAN DIAGNOSED WITH TRANSIENT GLOBAL AMNESIA

MAN AWAKENS IN HOSPITAL
WITH NO MEMORY OF HIS PAST
www.usatoday.com - When Michael Boatwright woke up in the emergency room, the nurses began asking him questions for which it became clear he had no answers. The gray-haired, soft-spoken man looked at his identity card and didn't recognize his own face. He answered only to Johan Ek. Though his driver's license said he was born in Florida, he spoke in Swedish and said he remembered nothing about his life before.
“The guy Michael - it wasn't me. I'm still Johan,” he said through a translator in a recent interview at Desert Regional Medical Center. The man was found unconscious in a Motel 6 room at noon on Feb. 28 and taken to the hospital, said Lisa Hunt-Vasquez, a social worker.

He had with him a duffel bag of casual athletic clothes, a backpack, five tennis rackets, two cellphones, some cash, a set of old photos and four forms of identification naming him as Michael Thomas Boatwright: a passport, a California identification card, a veteran's medical card and a Social Security card. Following mental and physical health exams, Boatwright was diagnosed by a psychiatrist and psychologist with transient global amnesia in a “fugue state”.
The conditions, both temporary and related to memory loss, were likely triggered by some kind of emotional or physical trauma. Medical staff determined that it would be unsafe to release Boatwright and have moved him to the hospital's skilled nursing facility. “He's kind of a blank slate,” Hunt-Vasquez said.

Michael Boatwright, 61, a man who woke up in the emergency room at Desert Regional Medical Center with amnesia, refers to himself as Johan Ek and spoke in Swedish. “The guy Michael - it wasn’t me. I’m still Johan,” he said through a translator. Boatwright was found unconscious in a Motel 6 room. He had with him a duffel bag of casual athletic clothes, some cash, a set of old photos and IDs identifying him as Boatwright. A psychiatrist and psychologist diagnosed him with Transient Global Amnesia in a “fugue state.” However, other explanations may be possible. Is he remembering his past life? Nowadays, hypnotherapists use sessions of past life regression as psychotherapeutic process.

WHAT DO THE VEDIC TEACHINGS TELL US? 
Reincarnation forms an integral part of the explanation of the Vedic scriptures for the seeming contradictions in karma. They assert the eternality of our existence; our life doesn't begin with birth or end with death. Each one of us is an irreducible, infinitesimal particle of anti-matter - spirit. It is this spark which animates the material body that we currently reside in. The body is merely an external covering like a dress. And just as we give up old and worn out clothes and accept new ones, the soul similarly gives up old and worn out bodies and accepts new ones at the time of death. ... Thus the principles of reincarnation allow us to view life with a much broader perspective - not from the standpoint of one brief lifetime which is nothing more than a flash in time, but from the standpoint of eternity.
