I'll state one thing for the record first: I'm not religious; nor am I atheist. I believe in a non-specific cosmic entity, and that there is a
purpose to everyone's life. But seriously, what would be the point of living if we aren't making our own choices? What the hell would we be learning
if we were just basically living in a movie? That would be pointless. I would compare that to buying a video game, then inviting somebody over and
saying "You play it while I watch, I don't want to bother doing it myself."
Actually, the soul is not capable of actively living out a human life because its real consciousness is way greater than the consciousness of the
human mind. The soul is therefore not capable of understanding limitation, restriction, discrimination and therefore emotions(which are formed by
feelings of restrictions).
This is why the soul possess human beings in order to learn about the various limited human qualities.
What the human reality is, is filled with simple lifeforms that souls can possess in order to learn and experience restrictions/limitations and human
If the soul is here to learn about limitations and restrictions in the human reality, then it really does not need to influence or change anything.
In order for the soul to learn about the slow action-reaction human reality, it had to slow itself down into linear time and then restrict its mind to
forget about its real greater soul identity, in order to experience from the much smaller perspective of a human being.
The soul is only consciousness and is not attached to physical matter, so as hard as it may seem to accept, the soul really does not understand the
limited physical matter or human reality well enough.
The human reality is already present, souls simply just need to possess any of the living lifeforms to experience such a limited kind of existence. If
souls are here to learn about human reality, then it only just needs to study it and watch it like a scientist, it does not need to alter it in any
way that will just affect what is already true and valid. Anything that happens in the human reality is just a valid scientific 'result' or
'conclusion'. For the soul to try altering the human reality is tantamount to contaminating the truth.
