But what of, say, people who in life have been so severely autistic that they've never even had a chance to be 'normal' at any stage in their earthly lives and who therefore can't go back to normal when they reach the spirit plane? And what of folk who in this life had Down Syndrome? In their own particular way, people with Down Syndrome are perfectly 'normal', so why would they suddenly metamorphose into people they've never previously been when they pass to spirit? Would they not just remain the same easy-going people they were in this life?
And what of people who in this life were deaf, dumb, blind and paralysed right from birth? Would they become newborn babies in the next life and finally be allowed to grow up and become 'normal' adults? Or would they be reincarnated immediately on this plane as newborn babies, so they could go round the system again and be regular folks this time?
Like all other diseases and disabilities of the body they will disappear after someone has passed over.
The remainder of the questions are each worthy of individual discussion and have often been considered here online and elsewhere. They frequently lead to debate without full agreement about the answers.
