If, just say, in your previous life you were a Viking, wouldn't you still have some cell memory traits coming into this incarnation? Wouldn't you live with this Odin type of empathy? Does this cell memory create our police force, our firefighters, etc. whom we have today? Is this why they continue to place their lives in harm's way in order to protect us? They receive poverty wages, yet they will give their lives for another who is in harm's way. I believe so.
