I believe co-incarnation across parallels is feasible. Some parallels look like ours but set in the past (or future) which would make the phenomena resemble reincarnation.

Other than being a part of the nature of reality, what does it matter if we're reincarnated/co-incarnated or not?

Early Christianity and reincarnation:

http://www.near-death.com/experiences/origen03.html#a05

Notice that the Pharisees questioning John were expecting the reincarnation of an Old Testament prophet. And John did not refute the concept of reincarnation when he stated his ignorance about having a past life as Elijah. But Jesus was not ignorant about John. Jesus knew better and said so in the plainest words possible:

This is the one ... there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist ... And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come. He who has ears, let him hear. (Matt. 11:11-15)

Jesus revealed John to be Elijah; but John denied it. Which of the two people are right - Jesus or John? The answer should be very clear. John's denial of his own past identity as Elijah does not mean he did not have a past life as Elijah. This is especially true when Jesus claimed that John was indeed Elijah.

The Bible is proof of reincarnation? That book seems like it can be proof of anything.

Lets assume it may be true, and if it was, those who believe in reincarnation, they are unaware of their past lives, so the Bible story could make sense the John would deny it. Many people think they may have had past lives, and have visions of that past life. The Bible does not give a promise of reincarnation for everyone, maybe it did happen in this one case, nobody will know for sure. Are there other mentions of reincarnation? The Bible does give a promise of eternal life however.

The exact nature of that eternal life is not disclosed.

Perhaps "Hell" is being reincarnated over and over and over again until you get your life right -- only then are you allowed into Fantasyland? :think:

I agree that life is not just a reward/punishment scheme.
