Here's a theory...
What if the reason we (or some of us, idk) have animal souls is because something was wrong with ours, maybe before or during birth or something. It could've been incomplete or something of the like. Of course, this theory can apply to any spirit fusing with yours; be it human or nonhuman. Maybe there's a name for this already but I'm not sure. Why it would be an animal specifically, I don't know. Maybe you guys might be able to build more onto this theory.

Again, this is a theory and nothing else. It isn't meant to be used as anything official.

When I was just a kitten, they said I'd be a gem; but now that I'm a Cheshire cat it's odd how I am..!

RE: Here's a theory...
This is what I was the making as well.
Maybe a page on this theory should be added to the guide?

Sometimes we have to wait for us to find ourselves.

RE: Here's a theory...
I've heard theories like this before, where two souls would supposedly "merge" togheter into one body because of one reason or another, creating one "essense" or "soul", or whatever you want to call it. I personally know one person in the kin community who follow this theory and believes it is the case for her own identify and core belief.

I don't know about souls. But I feel like I was born with a broken mind. So... kinda makes sense to me.

All beings seek for happiness; so let your compassion extend itself to all.

Interesting. Yeah, I'm sure it could be possible for some people to have this reason. But, I don't think there is an all encompassing explanation for every single individual.

Yeah I like that theory!
I was born 2 months to early, maybe my soul wasn't ready jet or something.

RE: Here's a theory...
My idea is when a soul dyes and the soul is not satisfied they can live this life again in a new body, this world is like a purgatory theory

But I do believe fused souls is possible as well because though unlikely it makes sense.....

I believe every soul is different though..
I have memories of to past lifes where I unnaturally died in both
Others believe they came in different ways

Like dormant said
Every one will have a different experience, this I think

RE: Here's a theory...
There is no such thing as a spirit or at least an individually discriminable one as you can determine from the dissection of components that make up the mind, so no. The idea of souls as stuff-like is out of line with the fact that the quantised structure makes up everything in a individual, from thought to form, the thoughts that arise the individual are all physical. As for how quantised structures are self-experiential as one individual and not the other (and also not philosophical zombies) is another topic, though there are modernly sound theories as to why that is and I have a good general idea myself. Such theories behind consciousness include post-CEST and post-Orch-OR which are the result of the observations that compromised progressively the likes of materialism and panexperientialism via quantum theory, observed evolution and neuroscience.

Hearts give off magnetic fields which I believe to be essence

No matter how much you know the truth is no one knows anything we just think we do

Sop fancy words is what you know
Not what I know
Because in truth we all know nothing

I was born 24 weeks early... with severe probeblems... aka "the miracle" as mum calls me.. I had a bleed on the brain... so, maybe that had something to do with it?
