#1 Posted by DEADPOOL (2703 posts) - - Show Bio

We know that his eye technique is called "Metempsychosis Eye." Metempsychosis is a part of Buddhism where they believe that there are 6 different "realms" that you can enter after death based upon your actions in life:


6. Deva (the highest, god-like and know only joy, they are ignorant to the pain of lesser beings)


5. Asura (demi-gods capable of both good and evil)


4. Human (capable of both good and evil, also capable of ascending or descending)


3. Beast (characterized by stupidity and servitude)


2. Hungry Ghost (characterized by insatiable desires)


1. Hell (the lowest, characterized by torment and aggression)

actually, it is buddhist, Hindu, janism, and any other religion that believes in the transgression of the soul.
