What do you think about the notion (which I entertain seriously from
time to time) that we may (re)incarnate quite by accident?  Suppose, let
us say, that one of the spiritual entities you mention got a bit too
close to what is often called the "earth plane" and got sucked in?

And are we not all spiritual entitities to begin with?
