Twilight idolizes Starswirl.
Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Rarity were inspired by Flash Magnus, Rockhoof and Mistmane respectively.
Pinkie Pie seems to have the same belief in leaps of faith as Somnambula…
And Fluttershy seems to take up Meadowbrook’s mask later…
The comics actually indicate that they’ve teamed up before…
That got me thinking, what if it’s not a coincidence?
What if the Mane Six are their…. reincarnations?

I am aware, this is was made sometime before it was revealed that the Pillarsof Equestria were simply stuck in limbo.
This is more of a spiritual connection if anything.
That they were still alive wasn’t known at the time this was made.
This. If they were reincarnations the Pillars would be dead.
please contact me when you remember where
Well, if you didn’t know every person in the world was also yourself having lived in this time more than once, you could still end up fighting yourself…
So every war is just them getting bored in several thousand lives at once?
I read a story like that once, but I can’t remember where.
In that case, what if, in the entire world, there has only ever been one person, living in every place and time?
I had a friend that believed that reincarnations didn’t happen in temporal order, so it was possible for your next reincarnation to exist before you or simultaneously to you.
I’m not saying it makes sense, but it is a possible thing to believe, apparently.
You’re late to the party dude, already went through it.
sooooo very clue yet soooooo far away! good try tho!
They aren’t, my headcanon turned out to be close but still wrong.

How in the hell can they be reincarnation see if the Legends are not dead
No it isn’t, you dipstick.
Given what they said in the comics, I theorize that Star Swirl was studying the Elements of Harmony, though he calls them by different names; hope, beauty, bravery, strength, healing, and sorcery. Given Celestia said he never learned the true value of friendship, I suspect he was trying to learn how to use the Elements, but never quite sorted it out, and that he was reasoning that they embodied power, rather than more subtle traits. Just my theory though.
Could this mean that they disappeared before Discord took over? Interesting
