Hi Alan.  I have no personal experience of this, so all this is based
on others ideas.  I recently read that the average period is about 100
years for every year of life and that the 1500 years is based on the
average human living only 15 years.  Therefore a person living 75 years
might expect a 7500 year holiday.  However this is very rough, and
generally lower types are supposed to come back sooner and higher types
later.  However highly developed types such as the Dalai Llama and Sai
Baba apparently come back very soon through choice as you indicate is
