    Hello, all. This isn't strictly an afterlife thing, but it's a neat idea my daughter had that kinda relates to the topic. If we assume that reincarnation is real, and that time/space are illusions, is it possible that a single soul can be incarnated in two or more bodies at the same time? It would be sequential from that soul's perspective of course. Am I making any sense?

    Hello OldManRobot! Yes, you are making PERFECT sense, and your daughter is so smart that she likely will be receiving the Nobel Prize for something at some point. In fact, since time is an illusion and reincarnation demonstrably does happen, apparently all of our lifetimes - both past and future - are being lived at the same time. (Er... at the same "time.") When asked about this oddity, one very advanced being said that it would be impossible for any incarnated person really to understand reincarnation, so for now we should think of it not as serial lifetimes but more as a bucket out of which one lifetime is dipped and back into which that lifetime is poured. Your daughter is right, and here are a couple of other odd facts which logically flow from her insight and which already have been tentatively substantiated:

    1) A Course in Miracles suggests that improvements in learning forgiveness and love in this lifetime will affect all our other lifetimes for the better, even those which we would think already have been lived.

    2) Brian Weiss, the important pioneer of past-life regression therapy, has experimented with future-life PROgression (reported in his Same Soul, Many Bodies), and has found that our future lives can affect this present one, just as our past lives can affect it.

    - The implications of your daughter's insight are so important to the future of the earth that not only is it directly germane to the study of the afterlife, but our need to understand it is one of the biggest reasons why mainstream science needs to get a clue pretty fast and start studying what is REALLY going on! If all of this is true - and apparently it is - then if many living people were all at once to begin to make real spiritual progress, then that might well begin to wipe out all the major evils of the past, and not only all the major evils of the future. Wipe them out. Change for the better all the words already written in every history book on every shelf! Do you wish you could have prevented the Holocaust? Well, apparently if you can teach enough people to love perfectly and to forgive completely, there is still enough "time" for you to do that....

    Whoa! Didn't expect somebody to agree right off the bat! :p

    Now that that's cleared up, we can move on to phase two: Using trans-soul binary modems to effect faster-than-light communication. All we need is a pair of human incarnations from the same soul, some EEG equipment, a rubber band, a samoflange, and a hefty research grant to pay for all the hard liquor we'll need... :D

    I would prefer two tin cans and a string, myself ;-)!

    One problem we face is that this appears to be a completely rigged game. Just as ant-farm ants living between glass think that they can go where they like and do whatever they feel like doing, so we believe that we can likely use science to do just about anything. But abundant afterlife evidence suggests that we really can't discover anything or make anything at all unless what we are trying to do is deemed to be appropriate to whatever the plan is for each of our lives and for the life of the earth; and if direct communication among our lives is not going to be helpful to us - or if it would be harmful - then there is no way on earth that we can make it happen, no matter how hard we try.

    What a terribly bleak, deterministic way of looking at things. So every atrocity, every deprivation, every moment grinding sorrow is actually planned by some external authority that simply watches it happen? I've read horror novels that were far less chilling than that concept.

    Think more in terms of a school, Cromulent. Losing the Big Game always is painful, and taking your calculus final is hard, but everything that happens is a learning experience. Think in terms of a school where you are the one who carefully designs your own lesson plan, and then you enter this reality briefly and work with others (both in and out of bodies) to carry it out. The game is rigged, yes, but it is rigged by eternal Energy composed of perfect love, and our only limitations are there to prevent our causing harm to this universe or to anyone in it. There is evidence that we have been kept from knowing the truth about death until recently because for us to live ignorant of the fact that we are eternal beings made this an even more useful school. Apparently now we are being allowed to perceive a deeper level of truth in order to elevate the consciousness of the earth's people enough to keep us from destroying the planet. Don't imagine a horror novel, my friend. Instead, imagine a tender bedtime story whispered while we lie cozily in that ultimate Parent's arms.
