And if so, what purpose would it serve other than to help us attain our highest self?

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Reincarnation is necesssary, in my opinion, and I think we recall more than most people realize. I don't know exactly what is required to attain the highest level we are capable of, and I don't know how long it takes to get there.....But I do know it can't all come to pass in one lifetime. Not for me, at least.

Reincarnation, being reborn in the body of a newborn, there's the Hall where you kind of review events and choices from your last lifetime or even other's lifetimes and thereby gain insight, possibly acting as a spirit guide to a living person or to simply go on to whatever the next level of existance is. My own take on option#3 is that we self monitor, with maybe some judicious nudging
My own take is that the final evolution is Understanding and Empathy with all Life.

Well 100 years (longest life span give or take a couple of years) is a very short time to learn what we need to know. If you think you can do it you had better devote every second trying, even when you sleep.
Karma has allot to do with where you end up and the life you will have when you are roborn. The things you have done in your past life are like baggage carried into the next. One of the points to understand when dealing with Karma is that it is built up since the begining of time. Not just the past 50 lives, since life started. Because we do not remember, for the most part, the doings of the past lives are hard to overcome. It takes great effort to live your life in a way that decreases this Karma and act in a way that it will not build it up again. It is something one must practice not only in word and deed, but right down to your thoughts. When one has practiced and is reborn into a better life they will be at a greater advantage to keep this process going.
Even if one where to live one life as a saint, doing no wrong whatsoever, they can fall into the deepest hell realms in the next life. Why? It is a higher act of Karma that decides what the being will learn in its next life. It is very hard to understand and unfortunetly I have not reached a level to trully explain why this would happen to someone. Perhaps in my next life I will get the chance again to learn about it.

One life time is usually not any time at all as far as I am concerned. And following the middle path is the key, but the middle path should be achieved IN THE MIND, but the body. It should be on the spiritual plane.

Every event in life is linked to our Karma, there is nothing coincident.
