Then, it struck me -- aren't the idea of Twin Souls also a form of parallel universes? In this life, I choose to be female, while another part of my essential soul chooses to be male (or, at least, not the same female) and live at the same time in history.
And if we are just drops of one ocean, aren't each one of us a part of a greater Soul which chooses to be male here and female there and living in this country or that country, at this time or another . . . In other words, aren't we all having parallel life experiences, as part of this greater Soul? Whoo, trippy.
