I'm not convinced that only one person can be active at one time. Astraea
is a group that has a great website covering the subject, and that doesn't sound like their experience. They also disagree with it being necessarily a disorder, and in their own case say that it is their natural state. While I haven't met them personally, they sure come across as different people on their various websites, and I take them at their word that they are different people.
On the subject of how people's souls will be judged, if you believe in God, wouldn't you also believe that God created the situation, and could handle a bunch of judgments instead of 1, and that the final judgment is way out of our league as humans? I'm not Christian, but it always seems to me that if God is mysterious and infinite, then we can't possibly predict or understand divine intentions or judgments. We can only understand the Universe based on what we can observe, and we can't observe heaven. Maybe someone who is Christian could show me what I'm missing.
