There are more holes with Denuser's explanation than without it. The only way it would work is if there is a place where souls were created and distributed, because no matter what every single soul that ends up in the Shadowlands is a chewed up, frayed, split and whittled version of its original self.
If Draka in Shadowlands dies, what happens to the Draka of the alternate timeline? Does she die too?
Haha lol that makes no sense... so if Ursoc is alive in an alternate timeline then what happened when they harvested him in the shadowlands? And if that Ursoc eventually dies it turns automatically into anima since a piece of his soul is gone for good making his whole soul unrecoverable?They should have just said that time actually affects the Shadowlands and the AU shadowlands is just different.
