A reader asks:
[I am] reading of the "wandering"of the soul during a lifetime I keep wondering about what happens to the soul of severely demented/Alzheimer stricken people. It seems they are somewhere else but keep hanging on to a body even if totally dependent and without a seemingly quality of life. Could The Committee clarify the different reasons why it is so? Is it the soul's conscious decision?
A human soul does not "wander" during or through an incarnation on Earth, even as much as any one soul might seem to do this. "Wandering" is a relative and subjective term. If enough humans wandered according to the general interpretation of that word, then nobody would. In that practice, the grounded, predictable person would become the "wanderer".
Nothing "happens" to the soul of a person with Alzheimer's or otherwise acutely demented; what appears to be happening is only to and in the human experience, to the human body and its surroundings of people.
We are all "somewhere" else; what varies from example to example, i.e. person to person, is the perceived ability to connect and engage through the senses of sight, speech and hearing.
"Without quality of life" is the result of general expectations of life's meaning. There is a quality of existence far more broad than human life, valuable as it is for us.
Says The Committee (who have been influencing everything said until this point, I've simply transposed rapidly their thoughts without the step-by-step of human words, which they're using now…)
(The Committee)…."The reason dementia occurs is similar to Asperger's or autism, it is an experiment - remember your word experiment is experience - conducted by the soul. Instead of lifelong, as autism often manifests, it is chosen to occur more often towards the end of the life plan. It is often done more for observers than the soul; although great human disagreement with this concept would erupt if this suggestion were offered. Those humans observing it in a friend or relative will understand completely, the moment they encounter again, the soul spirit of the former human manifesting the conditions.
Yes, it is a conscious decision by the soul, not the human manifestation of the soul. The reason a person appears to be struck with the condition, haphazardly, is part of the plan, purpose and reason for its occurrence. There is no striking; only acceptance."
