If you think of a 'soul' as an indivisible entity, then it doesn't seem to make logical sense to say that someone could be simultaneously incarnated in more than one body. But concepts in relation to 'spiritual' matters are even more slippery than they are in relation to physical things. We 'know' in the abstract that physical matter is mostly empty space, but we have to live with the reality of hard surfaces anyway. And we also 'know' that everything influences everything in the physical world. It's just that we have no means of measuring the gravity of atoms on adjacent atoms and so can't begin to figure out what it means in practical terms.

With abtractions like 'souls' we are even further in the dark. If two people are linked so completely that they are aware of each others thoughts and impressions, are they really 'different' people? How do you measure where one 'soul' ends and another begins? It may be that what Cayce was hinting at with his assertion of multiple 'incarnations' for some people was the Buddhist doctrine of 'no soul' (Anatta). In Buddhist thought there are no 'IN-divisibles' but only streams of consciousness. So it might be that Cayce was saying it was possible in earlier times for living persons to be linked -- precisely because the sense of 'self' wasn't so strong, but now our mode of living has become so material that we can only live in one 'stream' of awareness at a time. As you say, "We really are all One" -- so why couldn't some people in the past have been able to live that way?
