In a YouTube video, Haroldo Dutra Dias, says there are approximately 22 billion Spirits, including incarnates and discarnates. The current population on earth is 7.167 billion. Therefore, there are about 2 discarnates to every one of us physically on earth.
I was somewhat surprised at that number; for some reason I had thought the ratio would have been closer to 1:1. Now why would I believe that? Probably because I envisioned a queue of Spirits waiting to be reincarnated and thinking that there would be a constant stream and demand of Spirits wanting to return to earth to improve themselves. But now, given the 2 to 1 ratio, one must think of the number of Spirits who are in the lower zone (Umbra) and the number that are involved in support (much like the ratio of front-line soldiers to the rear support troops).
Next, I would like to know how many Spirits are in the lower zones versus the more elevated souls.
In the video, Haroldo speaks in Portuguese and a translator interprets him in English.
