Intelligence of the soul. Truth about so-called "migration of the soul"
" But that a human soul, and correspondingly even his at first very clumsy body, are put together in this way, everyone who thinks and feels more deeply will more or less be able to assume from the many indications that he can discover with himself.
 Take the great many various notions and ideas that a soul can develop out of himself with only little training, and which he also can imagine – correctly or less correctly, that is for the moment the same – if he would not be as if put together, like a unity that contains everything in itself, he would as less as an ox or a donkey be capable to design the construction of a royal castle and build it according to that design.
 If you consider all the various animals in the air, like the insects and birds, as well as the animals on the solid surface of the Earth, and those in the water, then you will discover with most of them the capability to build something. Just look at the bees and other little animals in the air that more or less look like it. Look at the very various nests of the birds, and the ants and still other insects in the soil, the spiders and the caterpillars. Furthermore all sorts of mouse, the beaver that builds a precise hut, the foxes, wolves, bears and still a great number of other animals, and see how they build and arrange their habitations very efficiently for themselves. Look furthermore at the various animals in the sea, especially the crustaceans. Then you will see with them such great capability to build that it often even very much amazes the best architect.
 Now, every animal, from the smallest to the biggest, has of course its own very simple building capability that is typical to the intelligence of its animal soul. It moreover knows the building material and always uses it in its own way and manner. But in the human soul a very large number of all those animal-intelligent building capabilities are present, and from them, he can, as it were through a silent awareness, put also a very large number of concepts and ideas together, and so he can create completely new and great forms.

The influences of the spirits during the procreation of human beings
"There is very little difference between the procreation of a human being and that of an animal. The soul of a human being must be completely in existence. This means that she must unite all such substantial specifica as are dispersed throughout the whole universe, and these must be supplied to her from all sides. The soul is such a compendium of complete substantial specifica, a unification of the substantial specifica. The specifica in the soul, however, are mixed, so that it might be said that, before procreation, the soul is a snarl that must be disentangled in order that she may acquire her specified form. This disentanglement begins with the progenitive act, because it is there that the soul‑snarl is placed in the mother’s womb and enveloped.
Within this shell or envelope the intelligences that correspond with one another begin to approach and hold onto one another. The spirits provide them with the light in their shell so that they may accomplish this task. The substantial specific intelligences recognize one another in this light, segregate, take hold of one another, and unite. All this occurs at the urgent request of the spirits’ will, which are entrusted with the supervision. These spirits are what you would call “guardian spirits.” Angels and higher angels will also exert their influence. Every human being has at least three guardian spirits, two angels and one higher angel; and above these watches a seventh, Whom you know well.
From the moment of procreation, these guardian spirits and angels arrange themselves around the new soul, and care incessantly for the soul’s orderly development.
(Angel Raphael) " With all animals, the act of begetting is merely an excitation of what is already there in the body of the female, for plant and animal soul-clumps always concentrate in certain numbers and according to certain arrangements at a destined spot in the maternal body. Once they are there, they excite first the female, who in turn through its excitation excites the male, and this then impregnates the female - not as if to lay a new seed, but only to awaken into activity the life-clump already existing in the mother.
 This happens in such a way: The semen of the male, consisting in freer and more independent life-spirits, excites as such the dependent life-spirits in the little life-clump of the female to a real revolution, forcing them to activity. Without such coercion they would remain inert and would never seize each other to form and organize a being."
 Where human beings are concerned, the woman 'also carries a natural substance in her; during the sexual act in the well-known manner a clot is fertilized and excited, but it is, like a berry plucked from a grape, transported to the right spot, and an already complete soul arrives and nurtures this living berry for a while. When the substance in the same is ready, the more and more consolidating soul penetrates into the very fluid, spongy embryo, taking about two months for the task. When it has taken complete hold of the embryo, the child becomes noticeable alive and rapidly grows to the proper size.
"15] (Angel Raphael) A female person also contains some nature-material in herself; but if fathering takes place in the manner familiar to everyone, also a little lump is fertilized and excited, but it is torn off like a single grape from a bunch, brought to the right place, and an already completed soul is added, looks for some time after this life grape, until the material in it has developed to such a state, that the continuously contracting soul can penetrate into the still very fluid embryo, which activity takes the soul two month to accomplish. Once it has completely empowered the embryo in the mother’s womb, the child becomes immediately noticeably alive and quickly grows to its orderly size.
16] For as long the nerves of the flesh child are not fully developed and are not active, the soul works with self-consciousness and with all zeal and arranges the body according to its needs; once the nerves are all fully developed, its continuously developing spirit becomes very orderly active, the soul then is getting more and more to rest and finally goes to sleep in the area of the kidneys. It now does not anything of herself anymore and only vegetates, without any recollection of an earlier naked nature state. Only a couple of month after birth it slowly starts to wake up, what can be observed quite well by the decrease of sleep addiction; but until it recovered some of her consciousness, it requires a longer period of time. If a child masters speech, only then does the right consciousness gets into the soul, although without any recollection; since this could certainly not be of any use during the higher development of the soul.
