that people who reincarnate fall into 3 distinct buckets: (1) singular, one right after the other types, (2) what I call "1+1's" (Ones with a Trailer) . . . people who want to absorb as many rounds on Earth as possible, so they incarnate more quickly and may, on occasion, "overlap"
so let's say Person A had a lifetime in which they were born in 1900 and died in 1950 . . . we would expect them to "come back" around, let's say, 1957 but perhaps they choose, for a variety or reasons, to come in 1962 or even 1972
singular incarnation types will (again, my theory) reincarnate after a time "away" . . . probably 4-6 years at the speediest end and 18-22 on the slowest end; average time probably around 9-10 years
Ones with a Trailer, on the other hand, come faster so if Person B had a life lived from 1900 to 1950, we would expect them to reincarnate around 1951 . . . or even 1949 !!!
they come to "catch the Astrology and catch the DNA" and so may choose a bodily candidate who is born shortly before the "current incarnation" passes
1+1's will be more fast and furious and usually we will see a 1-2 year window, typically with these types (either direction)
. . . and then there is the third group: (3) "Splits"
who will have an incarnation, to use our example, from 1900-1950 and another one that died in 1902 and lived from 1905-1967
in some cases, they might have a life from 1900-1950 but also two more "streams" -- (1902-1926 + 1930-1961) as well as (1910-1944 + 1945-1990)
splits will have two, or sometimes even three, going most of the time
each group has fairly comparable personality quirks and styles and the splits, perhaps not surprisingly, lean more towards live fast no matter the cost approaches to life more often than not
more to come on what I think are the primary "characteristics" of each type and how those "styles" may underscore each's approach to life
