I agree with you. The definition of love, as taught to me, is losing one's self in another. No boundaries...
But this is not the same as one soul incarnating--splitting--into two physical bodies. We are all unique. We have our own unique history of millions of lifetimes, personal karma, etc. This "I" does not split into differnt physical bodies. It may merge later--while on the physical plane or after death, but when incarnating, it is only that one personality that takes the birth. If there had been a merging previously, that merging will likely occur again. We will find that soul, be drawn to it. But we will not be born merged with it. I speak from my own experience with this process.
