In the Afterlife the souls – or ‘Selves’ as they are known – are disassembled into their constituent parts. The memories are broken into small chunks along with the likes and dislikes, beliefs and values. Everything is torn asunder, reformatted, sorted and stacked to be re-used.
When new Selves are needed they are made afresh from the recycled components but sometimes the cleaning process is faulty and stray nuggets of memory leak through to the new lives. These recollections are jumbled and incoherent, creating frequent errors and misconceptions, which have led many a novice soul astray.
