Since the souls tend to take up various visible forms and appear in the world until their time comes to leave the body lifeless, how can one not remember their past births or past existences?
Memory – Boon or Burden?
Even though amnesia or forgetfulness is blamed and people even seek out for medical help in order to get rid of their losing memory, the natural design helps the being to move on with the help of losing the memories of the past. For instance, when bereavement happens in the family, the close members would feel sad for a month, while friends for a few days or even a few hours. After the phase of sadness, they have to go back to their normal lives. Lots of memory stored is more of a burden than a boon. The souls that are created by nature know it better than anyone or anything that memories can be a huge burden even while changing dresses.
Who Has Space in Race Against Space?
Be it human memory, animal memory or even computer’s memory, the data and information have to be stored in some spaces. As the volumes increase, it is wise to erase the old memories to give way to the new ones, since at some point of time; the space would become a blocking constraint (as one cannot keep on adding more memory space forever) preventing the person/animal/computer from acting fast and wise. Since souls are mere energy form, they would not have enough space to carry all the memories of their past existences.
Exploring New Avenues:
If the dark past of losses and even victories keeps haunting the person, they would not be able to proceed in life; as the memories of being a loser would prevent them from taking risks and the memories of being successful would make them bask in glory without moving forward. Note the word used in the previous sentence is “haunting“, not “pleasing“! Therefore, one who relishes their memories beyond an extent would not be able to move forward in life. The same holds good for souls. If they keep on carrying
The civilizations who decided not to change themselves as they loved to live in the glory of their past vanished completely and were replaced with the ones who wanted to make progress by showing the willing to change by adapting and adopting new avenues, which can only be possible by disowning the past. Souls are designed to leave all their memories of their past dresses, so that they can go ahead to explore freely about the new dress in their future. What is the point of thinking of the quality and class of the old dress, while the mind could not appreciate the new dress?
Souls are Children:
Until the child is gifted with a new dress or toy, it would enjoy its old dress and toys for wearing and playing respectively. Give them a new one and they would almost instantly shift their total attention to their new toys or dresses, almost forgetting that they have old goods also. Souls, when they get a new physical being, would forget totally about the old ones to BE in the current state!
Short-Term Memory Loss: But How Short?
The memory of the souls are very volatile and therefore it can be proclaimed that they have very short term memory loss, just that the memory of the souls is equal to the life that they have enjoyed in their current dress (body).
