I have seen many soul-less humans walking about, you speak or try to make eye contact, but it is obvious that nothing resides behind their empty eyes.
There are many drones surviving day to day just filling a spot. I don't thing 6.5 billion people equate to 6.5 billion souls.
Also, I have thought about the population growth and the extinction of species. Have you ever seen someone or something take on a soul?! I think I
have. Most animals or pets are just randomly amusing, but occasionally one takes on a higher persona, they have a unique personality, loyalty, etc.
Even with my own son, he was premature and very fragile for months and months, he went through a lot of pain and suffering, and many times we
regretted having put him through all of that and wished he could stop suffering no matter what that meant. But, one day he miraculously became a
little baby, in an instant he was able to make eye contact and subtle grins. He connected with us all of a sudden, and everything changed.
Maybe not every living thing has a soul, and souls are not reserved for strictly humans.
Also, the quality of human being has dropped over the years, in my opinion. Therefore, maybe the energy of 1 billion souls is now spread across
almost 7 billion bodies in un-equal proportions. Gandhi's soul contained far more energy and value than the moron who shot a 7-yr old for
Maybe all those extinct animal species have reincarnated into humans. American Indian's gave a lot of creedance to the fact that some humans have
significant 'animal' traits. i.e. dogface, weasely, boorish, etc.
That is a lot of different theories, but I think they compliment one another. I would like to think that when my soul leaves this body with whatever
lessons I have learned, that I will have several opportunities to either exist as a spirit, or reincarnate another body be it animal or human, and
continue to evolve my spirit in the ways that it needs. Maybe souls of the oppressed chose that role to gain an understanding from it, and maybe the
soul in my dog chose to accompany me through the past 10 years of trials for a specific reason. Maybe a soul was not ready for my premature son, but
later one chose to take on that role for whatever reason.
Socrates/Plato often hypothesized that nothing can be "learned" only "remembered." We have all the knowledge of the universe within us, and over
our lifetime we remember it through trial and error.
I have seen people open up, grow, and blossom, and it was more than a physical or an emotional growth. It was there soul evolving. I have also seen
people internalize everything becoming imprisoned in their own body. They wither and wait for death to free them.
Overall, I don't think the human population of the earth is a proper benchmark for the number of souls or the quality of those souls that inhabit it
in various forms.
