hmm.. So does a fresh soul has pre knowledge or soul just has accuired knowledge from previous life? Accuired one maybe wrong too right?
As for the first question, it's pretty clear to me that every baby born has SOME PROPENSITY to think about what we don't know, where we came from, etc. That is the common denominator - a universal awareness of "not knowing" but also, feeling like there IS SOMETHING MORE that we can't put our fingers on, nor to which we can put words, or create images. Still, across all cultures, someone has "wondered" and tried to make sense of it.
I don't know what the second question means.
i meant, what knowledge gets imprinted on the soul. Say if in previous life i thought zeus is god then in this life will my soul knowledge inspire me about zeus?
Or the soul after leaving contemplates like "hmm.. Zeus dint work, maybe i'l find in next try" and then i am born with that soul.
In former assumption the soul is doomed. In the latter soul finds a way each time that doesnt work and tries again.
Hope this helped.

I believe each soul (I'm thinking this through as I type) likewise has ways of learning that carry over. Thus we each have different talents, strengths, weaknesses, etc. Those probably stay true through each lifetime. But one life it's piano, next it's violin. Or one life sculpture, next life painter....
I think the "mistakes" we work through are way more esoteric and overarching than a simple "detailed know-how".
Unless the soul is created tweeked to learn the right things only, in other words, soul should have a pre knowledge of what are 'mistakes' and whats the right thing at least theoritically and the soul just comes to earth to apply it practically.
What do you say?
all these talents would be random events depending on the surroundings where the soul was born in 1st round and the talents would be either improved or destroyed by later rounds.

I think each different set of events and surrounding will still see the soul having a "bent" for their passion - music, animals, astronomy, language, botany, aquatic life. One simply finds outlets for it in the given circumstances, whatever they are.
... there is zero evidence of accumulated memory. Even claiming that a person's predilection for something cannot be demonstrated to be a result of anything which preceded their conception.
I love music. I'm fascinated by it, in fact, and it's rare that I don't have it playing, in almost any form (except rap, yuck, lol.)

Perhaps you and your sisters received a gene that was not "prominent" in your parents' interests - but, to my thinking, the fact that all three of you love music is, well...
intriguing? Is it not?
While there are obviously things that are affected by our "nature", I come down, rather heavily, on the "nurture" side of things, even considering things that happened to us in the womb (that could, in some measure, affect us.) I know that's a fairly unpopular perspective these days, but it makes sense to me.
I, of course, was terrible and asked not to return after the first or second year, lol) so it is clearly the product of our environment.
