There's another striking difference between mankind as a group and plants,
animals, or minerals. The range of difference in the body of the animal
means some of the animals couldn't possibly be found to exist in a crocodile
for instance and then a flea and then a puppy dog. There's no way people
would expect their puppy dog to reincarnate as a flea. Animals are in
groups, but not groups that would intermingle as people do. Mankind is
basically one family in a sense that animals, plants, and minerals are not.
Couldn't this difference cause a theory to form that would distinguish the
souls of these kingdoms from the souls of men?
