OP, there's no guarantee that a spirit that's left its body will be reborn immediately. We don't necessarily get recycled right away. Many (from what I gather) spend time learning from their lessons, helping other spirits transitioning back to "the other side" from human life, and in some kind of learning mode, or helper role.

I don't think there's any set formula.

Time is a feature of "this side." Beings on the "other side" are in a timeless "now." What you think you perceive as duration does not matter, over there.
Souls can incarnate at any time period, forward or backward.

I met a guy who was sure he had lived and died in the 28th century, but incarnated in the 20th because he thought it was a "cool time to be alive." He confided that he made a mistake. He passed at young age (late 30s) - perhaps from disappointment. He showed me some of his notebooks, wherein he jotted down memories of life in the "far" future.
Ironically, he thought it was "boring" in the 28th century... too safe and secure.

The life expectancy is under 85 year in every country in the planet. You keep putting '90 years' in there, and it's misleading, for it implies that the life expectancy approaches 90 in some countries. It doesn't. It is just over 84 years in precisely one country (Japan). It's 80+ years in countries representing only about 10% of the global population. Again, the global life expectancy is considerably lower.

You then proceed to use more vague, imprecise claims: 'a lot of countries', 'under 9 months'. I can only presume this is deliberate. The average human pregnancy lasts between 39 and 40 weeks. Variation by country is only of a few days [see below]. Take Lesotho, a country where the average lifespan is a mere 50 years, a mere 56% of the '90 years' you're trying to pass off as correlating by a factor of ten with a 9 month pregnancy, the equivalent of a 22-month pregnancy. Show me the country where that's the average - but you can't, because they don't exist. Finally, there's history. For most societies before the Industrial Revolution the life expectancy was under 40 years. In 19th century British India it was 25 years, to city just one example. None of this remotely jibes with this idea of yours.

Note:
I also noticed that this conjecture of yours just happens to rest on the common calendar of ~30-day months, which is purely cultural, not ubiquitous, and only widespread in the modern era. That's yet another pure coincidence (because no culture has ever chosen to sub-divide its years based on some ratio of human lifespans).

This thread reminds me too much about a lecture I attended about numerology.

I wouldn't find that believable, if his 28th Century experience took place on Earth. I don't have much hope for Earth lasting that long, i.e. being habitable that long. It's funny that he concluded he'd made a mistake. Hello!

Jesus had hope of 'Earth lasting long' because Jesus knew the old Hebrew scriptures very well.
At Ecclesiastes 1:4 B it says that Earth abides forever.
At Psalm 104:5 that Earth foundations will Not be moved from its place forever and ever.
God formed the established Earth to be inhabited - Isaiah 45:18
Inhabited by perfectly happy-and-healthy people - Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah chapter 35.
This is why we are all invited to pray the invitation of Rev. 22:20 for Jesus to come !
Come and bring ' healing ' to earth's nations - Revelation 22:2
Healing to the point that even ' enemy death ' will be No more on Earth - 1st Corinthians 15:24-26; Isaiah 25:8
Earth remains, but the wicked will Not remain - Psalm 37:9-11; Matthew 5:5; Proverbs 2:21-22.

In the Bible, one's spirit is a neuter "it" and Not a spirit person - Ecclesiastes 12:7 B
So, one's spirit (it) returns to God in the same way a foreclosed house (it) returns to the owner.
The house does Not move or go anywhere but is returned to the owner's hands.
Thus, any future life ( resurrection ) now lies in God's safe hands until Resurrection Day (Acts 24:15).
Resurrection Day meaning: Jesus' Millennial-Long day of governing over Earth for a thousand years.

Yes, I hope I dont come back either although my life this time has been easy and not a difficult one. I just feel I have had enough.

In my beliefs, there are many different "schools" which are known for different things - just as some universities are known for their engineering graduates being good. There are specialisations. A video of Robert Monroe he suggested many spirits come here because they have met a "graduate" from the Earth School and admire what they have learned here. It is true that for some people in some lives things are very challenging here on Earth, so I could see that might be a reason to start this "course".

The other thing is - I believe the more we trash our Earth the harder the lessons become so the pupils who survive the course are the better ones. Of course there are probably pupils who cannot handle the challenges and choose to leave the course early too. But...thats OK, I dont think there is any shame or blame attached. There is plenty of "time" to reach the goal for each of us.

So, the next school is just down the block. It will not teach the same curriculum as Earth does, so by trashing Earth, we have lost a valuable learning resource, but I believe it will be recycled, humans will be repopulated or maybe with some other being non-human. Who knows, but I dont think it would be the end of the school - only in this particular form.

It takes 8-9 months to have a baby.

Example, if you die at 90 years old, you will be immediately reborn after having lived in the womb for 9 months.

Same as if you die at 80 years old. You will be immediately reborn after having lived in the womb for 8 months.

Same as if you die at 70 years old. You will be immediately reborn after having lived in the womb for 7 months.

Some people live to be 100 and over. There are children that are born at 10 months.

People that have died in their 10's 20's,30's,40's,50's,60's are born at 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months and 6 months.

Example. Someone in their 30's dies in a car crash. He/she is suddenly no longer in the womb. Premature birth

Someone shot and killed in their 40's is suddenly no longer in the womb. Premature birth.

You are an unborn baby right now somewhere. Whatever your age is, that is how old you are in a woman's womb as of this moment.

Is it possible that this is how the universe operates?



Anything is possible. But likely---NO!
