I came upon this thread, it is along the question I started a poll about awhile back and I wondered if a new discussion would work. I'm sure that everyone is familiar with the one-soul one-person one-life idea, Most of us here on this forum have moved away from that in one way or another I suspect. My curiosity lies in one area here, how the many "personalities" created during our many incarnations fit together. Do they just get reabsorbed back into the "Higher self?" Does each "personality" remain also as a separate "something" that can be seen by mediums? The idea of a Soul, or Over-soul, that combines aspects of itself and introduces those characteristics into a physical incarnation appeals to me. I would be interested in what others think about this.
