I Got Reincarnated And Mistaken As A Genius? - prologue

I was floating in a soothing, warm place engulfed in white light.
I can almost feel my brain melting from all the tranquility and serenity, and before long, I recall something.
“Oh, right… I… got into an accident”
I finally took a leave from work after a long time. When I said a long time, I mean a really long time since like 8 months ago. I threaten my superior while in tears, that I will commit suicide and haunt him on his bedside every night if he wouldn’t let me took a leave. So I took off for a vacation to refresh my mind.
Then I got into an accident. The last thing I could barely remember is that I was driving along a ridge in a small rain before my car slipped and crashed into the railings. I had to arrive at the next town by the next day if I wanted to make it during my leave period, so I forced my way through the rainy dark night to have my vacation as planned.
I know, it’s really stupid. I must be an idiot.
Now here’s the question, did I actually die, or I’m currently in a vegetable state  …?
“I can talk…”
I could hear my own voice dispersing into the endless light. If I could talk, then does that mean I’m still alive? Then I’m in vegetative state?
Nah, if that’s the case, I shouldn’t be able to even think, right? I remembered that when being in a vegetable state, you can’t think and can barely breathe, and your brain waves is also all flat. Well, I don’t know whether it’s true or not…
Then, what is this place?
Calm down, myself. Calm down. So what if I died or turned into a vegetable, I am still myself… There’s nothing to wor…
“Who… am I?”
Hey guys, it’s me. It’s been a while since the last time I thought about who I am, so I decided to stop thinking about it. Well, what can I do?
I do remember about the moment I got into an accident and things that are connected to it, but I can’t remember anything else! I can’t remember my own name, my family name, or my lovers’ name.
Oh, about that lover thing… I remember her being inside a PC, but there’s no way a person can get into a PC, so maybe my memories are a bit jumbled. But I can still remember anything else as long as it’s not about a certain person’s identity. Let’s say, I do remember the math, from the simplest 1+1=2, up to those probably upperlevel high school math.
I’m kind of surprised I can barely remember English, but I’m totally fluent with Russian. I can also remember from the most common things, till expert level knowledge of a certain field. It seems like I was a researcher, or maybe something related to it. Well, it’s not like all of it matters now…
But normally, you’d feel sad if you can’t remember your own name and your family. Call me apathetic, but I barely feel anything about it. But thanks to that, I also don’t feel restless or anything, so I can enjoy this warm comfortable life every day.
“Damn! Not again!!”
I was spacing off as usual, then suddenly my surroundings shook. After being in this place for a while, I learned that this place would shake at random intervals. At first, the tremor was so weak I can barely tell if it’s shaking or not, but lately it’s getting worse. It would stopped after a while, but lately I feel like it’s getting more and more frequent.
“Don’t tell me this place is started to falling apart?!”
I was worried at that thought to the point I had to say it. No, I don’t want to go… I don’t want to leave this comfortable place! At the same time, I can also feel myself giving it all up… Guess this is the end, it felt so short yet so long…
“Well. For an idiot like me, a luxury break like this was more than enough…”
After I said that, the bright light got even brighter, I was engulfed in a light so bright I can’t keep my eyes open.
I guess… this is the end…
Then my vision burst.
“Congratulations! It’s a healthy baby boy!”
It’s just starting!!
TL Note :
 Vegetable state is an idiom for people in comatose state.
The better words is “Vegetative”, not “Vegetable”, but I keep some because the pun
