As a follow-up question…
If only the causal body goes w/ the soul after death to the next birth, & both the subtle & gross bodies have been destroyed or left behind, how do we explain past life remembrances? The causal body can store memories? That’s something I thought was the function of the intellect.
Perhaps when there’s a sudden or traumatic death, the subtle body might also go w/ the soul? In his work on past life remembrances, Dr. Ian Stevenson reported that young children can have reasonably verifiable, vivid past life remembrances, but that such memories would usually fade as they grew up.
