No, actually it's not increasing. It's been between 10-15 billion years for quite some time now.
Everything decays. Everything dies. Even protons. Even photons. There is a limit to the age of the universe because there is only so much energy to continue running the universe.
The universe will die. Dark energy will decay, and the universe will snap back on itself and restart. Who knows how many times its happened and how many times it will happen onward. Perhaps that is the cycle you speak of. But it is impossible to transition memories between these parts. because memory is nothing more than the continuation of electricity in the brain. Once that brain dies, the electricity spreads out with it, losing the resonance that keeps memory going.
There is no proof for the soul, nor God, nor much of anything to what you speak of. It is common sense that harming others harms yourself, as it is quite obvious that war creates war. Yet nobody's ascending. There have been 106 billion people who ever lived. There are 6.8 billion people on Earth today. I think it's kind of obvious that the cycle is not working and has failed miserably.
One can escape the cycle by leaving the limitations of time and death itself.
I'm actually interested in your opinion of something. It's from a video game. Basically there are these creatures called the Geth. Geth are computer programs. One Geth is as smart as a common computer program. But hundreds of them on a piece of hardware work together to generate intelligence. They are basically virtual brain cells that behave exactly the same way. By the time around 1,000 are running on one piece of hardware, the hardware has the capacity to think like a sentient being. It is, for all intensive purposes, a sentient being. However, it is not once consciousness. It is not one person. Each Geth is an individual working together to create a communal intelligence on a built piece of hardware. Geth hardware have quantum entanglement contacts to hubs. If the hardware ever "dies", The geth programs simply use the device to upload back to their hubs and not die. They cannot die. They are literally physical souls.
So how would your karmatic system work for them? They can never die. They can only exist. If a program is lost, it is not a person. It is replaced, copied, or made anew. Programs can change their code, evolve, and develop. But alone they are no different than a brain cell. Only when they work together do they become as intelligence and conscious as a human or beyond.
How does it work? They have removed themselves from your so-called cycle of birth and death. Your system is irrelevant to them.
Have a listen from directly in the game. I really want your opinion of how to make your system work for them For all intensive purposes, if I downloaded my own consciousness into the same, I would be removed from your cycle:

I asked you information that you had experience yourself , from your own knowledge , not from anothers book on the subject.
Since you have past experiences from that system , there must be something unique that you know , that others dont apart from astronomers who specialize in the sirius system

I would love to see your work once it is completed - You have to do it - I had a very powerful dream and several years later it came to pass - even the locations were the same down to the building and other details.
So I guess I dreamt the future then which is of course now the past -
The past is gone and does not exist.
the future is that which has yet to be,
How we do we measure now I guess because time is cyclical but we think of it as linear
