Alan, I agree with you 100%. We kicked around the group soul
business a few years ago, but it keeps rearing its ugly head.
IMHO the best info on the subject is by de Purucker, whose
definition of the human lifewave is much closer to what is
going on than the AB/CWL notion of group souls. We are all
interconnected because we all belong in the same human
lifewave currently incarnating on Globe D. This is where
collective karma comes from.
