It's specifically the crazies that stand the greatest chance of returning. The less capable you are of 'uniting' with everyone else the more likely you are to hold onto your deranged self in the face of additional stimulus. You'll just probably end up going even crazier as a result.
What was this book about repopulation btw? It was probably written before modern genetics theories. So, bomb for its time, just doesn't consider all the factors it would have to were it written today.
You then need to keep in mind that for humanity to count as a self-sustaining population, the number extant on the planet at any given time would need to number in the tens of thousands due to genetic considerations. If we don't reach that many manifested souls at once, it's just death by inbreeding waiting to happen. So on and so forth with the next group of people to be 'reborn'.
You haven't thought it through ;)
In theory, you're correct; anyone can return to his or her body at any time. All the physical requisites of a human body are present in the LCL: all that's necessary to become oneself again is to remember the fact that one is an individual, that one had a physical form at some point, and to want to be that person again. All that while in the midst of several billion other souls crowding around you with no barrier to communication, nothing that lets you hold yourself as being 'apart' from anyone else.
How long would you remain yourself exposed to such stimulus? How long could you, in practical terms, continue to exist? Or would you simply hold on for as long as you could... before melting away and vanishing?
Read the rest of the sentence! Hah :P
