I don't know if this has been thought of before.

If corporeal existence involves causal trajectory (which does seem to be the case) then Preincarnation couldn't happen. Everything that exists as physical within this corporeal realm has left a contextual trail behind it, and whatever it was that brought it into existence (mom and dad, a seedling, and extra loose hydrogen molecule hooking up with one of its own and an oxygen molecule) left a contextual trail behind that, and so on all the way back to the beginning of time. Preincarnation insists that a person's full emergence, their physical genesis, could somehow shatter the causation structure and enter into an established causal trajectory without obliterating the entire existential superstructure.
While I'm sure that some esotericist (probably not a real word) could construct an argument on behalf of it, constructing an argument and reconstructing the entire causational structure to allow for such a breach are two completely different endeavors.
