I learned as meat cutter, #1. Never try and catch a falling knife.

Yeah. I apply that rule to stocks too!<g>

The reason? Because the education of the soul is too important to leave up to chance. This side exists to teach "the soul" certain lessons and the physical laws of this universe seemed to be designed specifically to cause these things to happen: Separation, time and space, and make memories of what it was like to inhabit a physical body and live in a 3 dimensional + 1 time universe.

Ok. Now does the "soul" learn these lessons in one lifetime? Or does a "soul" continually comes back til the lessons are learned? If the later it would be similar to what Hindus believe. That one reincarnates til nirvana is reached [assuming my understanding of Hinduism is correct].

Now to the "soul" itself. Do "souls" reside as non-corporal beings in a different dimension? There must purty much an infinite number of souls waiting to enter our "physical" world. I say infinite as there are 7 billion currently on earth. And then think of all the people who have lived upon earth. Of course if "souls" make repeat trips; they would could be countable number rather than infinite.
