I did note that te one element of the Briah cycle which does *not* fit in with neo-Catholic ideas is the frequent transfer of human identity. In the Bible there is the "possession" of humans by indwelling demons or angelic forces, but the idea that a human soul could shift from body to body is not found. hartshorn --
