You are drinking from a deep well full of very good knowledge, but you are not to the bottom yet.
1) You mentioned nothing definite about pre-earth experience. But if we are eternal then we have obviously lived on planets other than earth.

But there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the basic idea may have come from fleeting out-of-body experiences of aspects of the intermediate realm.
There is no God in the sense of a separate entity, but there is plenty of evidence that we are all part of one, interconnected whole. So how do we reconcile this with the evidence for individual soul survival?
the aim of the Source is to experience all that is and can be
