Perhaps we all are born with amnesia and when we incarnate we must relearn everything over and over again.
I don't think that all humans are here from other dimensions or other species, necessarily. The soul either chooses or accepts a life full of the
lessons it needs to learn to mature. (Edgar Cayce wrote some interesting things on this very subject.)
It's not specifically an amnesia, but more like an inability to contain. Memories are energy, and if we remembered everything from our lives, our
brains might deteriorate during development. The soul remembers everything while the brain doesn't. I think when a soul re-learns something, we call
it an epiphany, or the thing really rings true with the soul. When people seem mature beyond their years, they are probably older souls than people
who seem immature for a very long time.
I do agree, however, with the soul's ability to incarnate into any living thing, but with respect to how old or young a soul is, I don't know. Maybe
an older soul wanted to know what it felt like to be a fish or have hundreds of legs like a millipede. Maybe the younger soul needed to learn physical
lessons or basic interaction lessons... or a soul wanted to experience simply from the eyes of whatever they want.
Old souls, I think as a main purpose, are here to help others along a spiritual journey. They help teach lessons to younger souls. A fascinating
example is of babies or young children who die because of cancer or some terrible accident. "God" wasn't being unfair; it was the soul who wished
to teach younger souls (perhaps the parents) lessons in facing hardship and death. If the young souls don't learn, then they repeat the lessons until
they do learn. Simple as that, and very fair if you ask me.
So I could be much older spiritually than a person who is many years older than I in the physical. Bodies are merely vehicles.

That is pretty much exactly how I have come to think of it. The hardships and tough lessons we face in life we actually picked to face as a "dead
soul" after we die.
Lets say in order to acend to a higher being I need to learn compassion or patience, then I would choose a life /body where I would go through
certain situations that I am meant to learn from.
It all seems like it's just happening unplanned because we have no prior knowledge of it once we enter the body ( enter into an unborn child/seed
The ultimate goal is to be one with the creator again and to know that we all are one. But you can't cheat and take the easy way because you never
really learn so we go through these lessons ( aka. lives ) that we learn from and our soul always retains these teachings.
As above so below................On a higher level we are trying to learn lessons and better ourselves, just as we do on a smaller scale here on
O and by the way.....it's my personal opinion that the humanoid form is the most capable/evolved ..( perfect ) form.
That means that there are worlds where once the ( things) evolved into their humanoid form they are at their physicall max .
Meaning that we were once apes and had we been left alone, we would have turned into what we are no somewhat just would taken longer. We were
interfered with and our process was sped up ( thats why we are special )
So on another world the dominant form that evolved could have been types of fish and then you have humanoid forms with fish features such as scally
skin or different eyes.
and another there are bird, cat, dog like humanoid forms......
Humanoid body's with bird/cat/dog heads......................They diddn't just make this stuff up, like we would now. And it wasn't just a few
people fooling everyone.
These are the beings they interacted with and came to learn from. They are very real to them like you and I are to eachother.
The biggest lie/Fallacy for humanity is that too often we think we have found " THE ANSWER" when in fact it is just the start of a new question
within to gain more information. The process of discovering adn learning is never ending.
So next time you run into a " know it all " you can just laugh at them knowing how ignorant they really are.
True Ignorance is believing you know it all when you really only know a portion of the puzzle.
Just my Opinion though , but I believe a very well thought out one in which I have listened and read others opinions and stories, and myths, and
tales, and info and facts that I use to formulate and intertwine it all together to get the outcome of my opinion.
good day to you all :-)
