The 'hypothesis' is an interesting one to ponder abstractedly. I think many have enjoyed doing so - it's not entirely a new idea. Maintaining the
general 'circular' reference, I prefer to take it a step further, away from the confines of the 2-dimensional to the 3. If we look at the
'hypothesis' as a sphere rather than a circle, the thought might be entertained that perhaps the 'recycling' of one's life might not have to
follow the same exact course as the previous. For instance, the 'rebirth' at the end of one life cycle might overlap at the initial point of the
previous, but follow a 'circle' one point removed from the previous allowing for various differences in decisions. That would, in essence, allow
for a similar, but completely different, life than one previously experienced. Indeed, each life cycle should be further removed from the original,
with greater differences expressed in each subsequent. Additionally, while the nature of points within a circle are infinite, the circles themselves
become infinite when translated into a sphere. It could roughly be analogous to the multiverse theory for each individual. As to the suggestion that
each choice, or decision, results in infinite new possibilities, I might suggest that various points within the 'circle' might radiate horizontally
(or any other direction) from any other point within any given circle. Truly, the possibilities would be endless.
Then again, maybe I'm just in that sort of abstractedly thoughtful mood this evening. Thanks for the thread - I enjoyed it.
