Our position is that “reincarnation” is the ancient understanding of evolution. As taught by most religions, eg. Orthodox Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Druidism, and the ancient religions of Egypt and Babylon (but apparently not taught by standard Christianity), souls reincarnate many times until, with the right moral actions, they finally reach God.
Reincarnation is really the evolution of the material body, which includes the soul at the zenith of the human mind, all the way to supermaterial Godhood. The Soul-State is a condition attained by ascetic discipline whereby the desires of the body are blocked out, leading to a blissful state that can be seen or compared in a human way to virtual Godhood. It is the Spirit-Will rather than the soul that seeks real Godhood by activating the material world, which is then shaped by evolution, to seek Godhood.
