I also believe very much in what Erin says...even though I'm a religious person. So from my paradigm the veil is there as to not interfere with our free will. I think ANY prior knowledge of things are they really are will interfer with the "tests & trials" that will come our way. For those of a religious persuasion...we have to walk by faith. And it’s true that the veil can become very thin at times. But for most of us, the veil remains; it's there to help us learn how we must live & what we can become.
