What perhaps you are telling is, that our souls reside in different bodies after we die. So, now your soul is in a human body, but after you die, it could move into a new born pig, or a dog, or another human, or a bird, or a palm tree or poison ivy etc.

Not sure how do you fit the "rinse and repeat" process into this scenario? Your soul is simply moving from one physical body (of a human, animal or plant) to another physical body. Is that what you call "rinse and repeat"?

We know for sure that human population is increasing - so the question was, where are the new souls for new humans come from IF its a RINSE AND REPEAT process? What you are saying is that those new souls come from other dead humans, animals and plants - OR - some boxes are opened and brand new souls (that are already clean and don't need a rinse) are put into new humans till they get dirty and need rinse again. When does it end if physical bodies are limited?
This is very easy to answer. The conscious takes residence in any and every single form of life on this planet. This is evident because every single form of life on earth has a conscious. Pigs, dogs, humans, birds, trees and poison ivy..

Yes, the human population is increasing every day, but just because your conscious resides in a humanoid body, what makes you think your conscious will reside in a humanoid body the next go round? Perhaps you think this way because at this very moment, you are a human?

This earth is billions of years old, yes? How many life forms have went extinct over these billions of years?

Far more life has been lost than what is being manifest in physical entities.

Plenty of conscious is waiting to manifest into physical entities.

All you have to do is open your mind. There is soooo much more than just the physical body we currently reside in.

Here is another example.

A living human and a living dog.

Human looks at the dog, and can tell right away that the dog is different physically and alive

Now look at the human and dog again, but this time the human is dead and the dog is alive

Human can not tell that the dog is different physically or alive because he is dead. The dog however can tell that the human is dead.

Now look at the human and dog again. This time the human and the dog are death.

Human can't tell the dog is different physically or alive because he is dead. The dog can't tell if the human is dead any longer because the dog is also dead.

Both dead side by side............ So what is the difference between a human once living and a dog once living.


THEY BOTH HAD A CONSCIOUS AND NO LONGER RESIDE IN A BODY BECAUSE THE BODY IS DECEASED.

Irrelevant to the issue. An insect having some sense of consciousness does not make it as important as a human being.

Lets say we are able to transfer our memories/consciousness into a human like robot with no cancer, getting old, broken bones, illnesses and someone is there to recharge our batteries.

That doesn't guarantee we live forever. What happens if a catastrophic event takes place like what happened with the dinosaurs?

Says who? You're more important just because your much bigger than the insect?

There are mammals much bigger than us.

I find it interesting, that those with near death experiences do not see pets.

All of the studies are there.
Thatís not exactly accurate...

Who says? Well, how about Jesus?

Matthew 10:31"So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.


If your house was infested with roaches and the only way to get rid of them was to exterminate them (you couldn't trap them to relocate them, and who would do that anyway), would you kill them, or would you live with them, or would you move out and let the roaches have your house?

If you kill them then you obviously don't think that the roaches are as important as you.

If you choose to live with them, or to move out and let the roaches have the house, you're an idiot.

Your consciousness may be stuck in the memory hard drive of that robot!!!
