I've got to thinking about the various tools that could be employed to help define reincarnation. Things like psychology. Is it possible to profile an individual soul throughout it's various incarnations? From my observations there seems to be two schools of thought. The first being that we are completely different people in our various incarnations, opposites in fact. This would indicate that nurture plays a primary role in how our successive personalities develop. The second is that we are basically the same person throughout our various incarnations, its just that life circumstances and maybe even gender are different. This would seem to indicate that nature plays the primary role in how our personality develops. I was just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this? I myself have a strong opinion on this because nature and predeterminism seems to have played a primary role in my souls journey, my nurturing simply tooled me up to cope with my current life challenges thus was only crucial to my current life's journey, my overarching soul has been defined by a consistent nature, but perhaps other members experiences are different?
