I am aware that this may be an extremely bizarre question for some of you, but let me explain.
My friend and I were having a discussion, in which he revealed that a close relative had reincarnated into butterflies. Not just one, but many of the
same species. Monarch butterflies. I told him that was unlikely, as the same soul cannot inhabit multiple bodies simultaneously. He then said that her
soul fractured, and a piece of her soul went to each butterfly. He said these butterflies behaved erratically, perching on the shoulders of a friend
of his, of whom the deceased had been very fond. They were much more friendly and comfortable around this person than the average butterfly, leading
to my friend's suspicions.
He went on to explain that every time we have a child, a fragment of our soul goes into that child, forming another soul that is part of our own. At
this point, I was thoroughly confused and uncertain, as my personal beliefs would allow for such an event, but only to a certain point. One soul
cannot inhabit a dozen bodies, for instance, or it's little more than possession and not actual reincarnation. Also, my beliefs are that a soul
cannot break. Either it is removed, or it is reduced, or it dilutes for a certain span of time, but it doesn't break. Those are my ideas, but I am
not an expert by any means, so I could be wrong.
What are your thoughts in this subject, ATS?
