For many the question surrounding reincarnation is whether or not it really happens?… This seems to be a widely debated issue, and you are likely to find more views on the topic than questions about it. It is interesting though that so many of our current day philosophies denies this and others simply seem to ignore it.. This despite their acknowledgement of an immortal soul.. "One has to wonder where it is they think they come from?… How it is they have come to being?…. (never mind where they are going…)"
The principles of reincarnation are based on principles which support the immortality of the soul, as well as a perpetual movement through time of the soul. This occurs when the soul incarnates itself into various bodies, for the time that these bodies can sustain physical life. After this the soul moves on to the next body, to infinity.
Whilst at first glance this may seem somewhat disorganized, once the full picture becomes clearer, you will find that this happens in perfect order and for lack of better description " with a plan in mind which is apparently your plan".
Sadly also is the simple fact that the significant speculation that has taken place about this topic, has led to an incredible number of fallacies evolving over time. Fallacies which has not only increased the confusion about this topic but also has managed to lead many astray.
This list starts with at least these :
So now that you know this, you could probably explore a little further, and see just where it might all go.

Help answer the question about reincarnation
How was reincarnation understood in the context of Christian belief, before the church disavowed such belief?
I know that reincarnation was accepted as a Christian belief until the Middle Ages. Where can I find reliable scholarship discussing how reincarnation was understood, in the context of Christianity, during the period before it was disavowed/ discarded by the Church? Who is knowledgeable on this topic and willing to share?
