While conservation of matter and energy almost certainly holds for
consciousness, as well, figuring out how many souls there are is like
figuring out how many drops of water there are in the ocean; note that
the size of a drop is not even well-defined. Also, note the possibility
that souls do not stay intact in between incarnations; Krishnamurti
seemed to indicate that possibility.
