I dont know if this is what I think; it is just a thought. The earth's explosion of population is unusual among higher consciousnesses beings. In order to compensate for the huge influx of life; souls from other dimensions and galaxies and all over - they volunteered to come to earth and participate in our little experiment here. The difficulty is once they arrived. Besides the mandatory memory loss that occurs in our dimension every time we are reborn - most beings in the galaxy are not use to or out of practice dealing with the complexities of human life. All of the unstable emotions, the pain, the drama, the rules of our dimension, society, etc etc - as you can see it isnt easy being human. As a matter of fact it is probably one of the most difficult higher beings in existence. So these new souls get here and they are just completely overwhelmed with the difficulties of being us. That is why if you look around at most of society - and I'm talking all over the world, esp third world countries (not trying to be a dick - but I have lived there for years upon years) - hell; you may be able to include this theory to any segment of our society that tends to have the most children, but the point is they are newer souls and not quite as accomplished or knowledgeable in the game of life. It also explains how occasionally a child prodigy gets born from completely humble parents. I think these new souls are overwhelmed with being human: it explains much addiction and alcoholism, the unhappiness, the masses of really not smart people out there just trying to survive, etc As they get better through reincarnation they grow as humans and evolve. In a way you can see a lot of people with empathy; they are literally lost souls trying to find their way through life. 4:20 bitches!
