I don't think anything has nailed it yet, but I think the egg by Andy Weir is the closest.

In my mind, I thought how beautiful and ordered it would be if we were different reincarnations of each other, going around and around again.

It's beautiful from a karma point of view, everything we do bad and good is caused by ourselves. I also thought for an all powerful being it may be boring and what better way than to keep entertained.

I do prefer Andy's interpretation. If the universe is an egg and as a species our totality would be a fetus. Every thought and applied knowledge combined over a near infinity of experiences of moral understanding would just approach being a baby deity.

I believe the teachings of Buddha, but none of the supernatural elements. No reincarnation. No afterlife. No souls or spirits. Karma is just how our actions shape our surroundings, which in turn, can shape us, come back upon us, etc.
