What about all those people that were supposed to be unconscious, or even flatline dead, that can recount things they shouldn't be able to?
Anesthesia awareness — or unintended intra-operative awareness — occurs during general anesthesia, on the operating table, when the patient has not been given enough of the general anesthetic or analgesic to render the patient unconscious during general anesthesia (often when agents used to paralyze the patient have been administered). In brief, it is the post-operative recall of intra-operative events.
However, it can also occur in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) or in the intensive-care unit (ICU), where patients are kept sedated, tranquilized and sometimes paralyzed (and intubated) and are connected to life support systems, awaiting normalization of their physiology.
They don't exactly fit in to your black and white, cut and dry view of the world.

The soul experiences are present for every human. It is just that social conditioning and improper education lead people to discount that.
Souls have powers much beyond physical body of humans. For example, my wife can sense my physical state even if I am thousands of miles away. A soul can see or sense other souls, and such experiences are present in every human's life.
..in that other universe,
there's a crackpot group of people
who claim in a past life
they lived on a planet called earth

The ten universes that you referred to is an illogical concept.
There is only one creation. This creation contains countless but finite number of souls.
If we cannot see a soul does not mean that soul exists in a parallel universe. We cannot see so many things. Still we know these things are there. You use electricity for so many things. Do you see electricity?
The Vedic teacher explain that soul is made of matter 'finer' than the matter we can see. That means that the light that can resolve shapes for our eyes cannot do it for the soul.
The wavelength required for seeing a soul is much smaller than our eyes (or even our instruments) can resolve.

They are out there. Here is one
For 23 years Rom Houben was imprisoned in his own body. He saw his doctors and nurses as they visited him during their daily rounds; he listened to the conversations of his carers; he heard his mother deliver the news to him that his father had died. But he could do nothing. He was unable to communicate with his doctors or family. He could not move his head or weep, he could only listen.
Doctors presumed he was in a vegetative state following a near-fatal car crash in 1983. They believed he could feel nothing and hear nothing. For 23 years.
Then a neurologist, Steven Laureys, who decided to take a radical look at the state of diagnosed coma patients, released him from his torture. Using a state-of-the-art scanning system, Laureys found to his amazement that his brain was functioning almost normally.
Experts say Laureys' findings are likely to reopen the debate over when the decision should be made to terminate the lives of those in comas who appear to be unconscious but may have almost fully-functioning brains.
