An absolute individual*** never swaps places with another individual. An absolute individual-Brick never swaps places with another individual-Brick. An individual-theatre seat never swaps places with another individual-theatre seat. If we assigned 'each location' of 'space & matter' in the cosmos an 'X-Y-Z corrodinate' and called each point a 'vector-point' or 'address' or 'entity serial number' or 'tracking number' or 'a provencial paternal father's namesake': "An absolute individual never swaps places with another individual" ---ergo, each point of space & each speck of matter & each individual "persona [aka, soul or consciousness possessing entity (aka, sentient being)]" are placed on the stage of existence in a differing and unique POV. Everyone is viewing the same Cosmic Movie screen ---from differing POVs. The individual consciousness possessing entity is re-born [transmigrates] to another future body. It is the consciousness possessing entity that is re-born WITHOUT A TRACE OF THEIR PREVIOUS PERSONALITY/TRAITS/MEMOMRIES etc ----except their KARMIC DEPT [to society]. The past birth is NOT re-appearing again when the word Re-Born is used. It is the consciousness possessing entity [aka, individual soul] that transmigrates to the next body. The next body can be one of "8,400,000 Species of Life ---this refers to any of all the existent forms of life". Q. Who [consciousness possessing entity] gets which new birth in what stratum of life? ---A. The next life is predicated on the Works preformed in the last life ---exactly like a Work CV or work resume allows carte-blanche entre to ideal positions. a] "Born again Christian" is an adult declaration and re-commitment to Faith as first popularised in the '60 & '70s America. I do presume that Jesus Christ Coined the term in the NT. There is a term also used in Hinduism ['dvija' second birth] where similarly, yet with older provinance, refers to a young man taking 'brahman-initiation' [a social-religio norm (sacrament) akin to bar-mitzvah]. b] YES, "Reincarnation is re-birth of the same Atman" ---yet the atman DOES NOT RETAIN any remnants of the past life ---except for the karmic-payback, karmic-payback is a totally material mundane impersonal reckoning of the acts once put into motion that later re-appear enmass as time & Place & circumstance allow ~karmic-payback, can be old debts and/or new debts and/or unknown debts. Because the atman DOES NOT RETAIN any remnants of the past life --this is the embarrassing*** spiritual/sublime/astral quandry: IN LIFE, WE THINK WE ARE OUR BODY---IOW, WE THINK OUR EGO IS FOREVER WHAT AS IT IS IN THE PRESENT LIFE. But, the objective fact is that WE ARE NOT THIS MATERIAL BODY, WE ARE SPIRIT-SOUL [individual consciousness possessing entity]. IMO, The best term for this re-born occurance [as past down to me by the famous wise old Swami named Bhakti vedanta Swami] is: Transmigration of the soul. "Reincarnation" refers to tha act of the Transmigration of the soul. When the soul is "Re-born" in a next life ---it refers to tha act of the Transmigration of the soul. Pleas don't be bashfull and avoid telling me I am wrong. at your service, while on hours, Bhaktajan ***PS: IMO, The Buddhist doctrine that says there is a not soul to begin with, yet a soul-less entity Transmigrates, birth after birth since time immemorial, in the cycle of samsara, because of accrued Karmic-payback [karma-phalam, fruits of works], IS ALL A PHANTASMAGORIC FALSE TEMPORAL EXISTANCE OF AN EGO THAT WONT STOP SEEKING PLEASURE & THUS, GETS INTO KARMIC ENTANGLEMENT---certainly has concluded correctly & loigcally that the false ego in samsara is an embarassment, and one should seek release from this embarrassing cycle of samsara.
