Theory that I just thought up.  
Not sure if this has been discussed/or is already obvious... But I thought about something.
(If it's been discussed I'll delete this)

Okay, so as talked about in a recent post, the homunculus come from beyond the gate, so the theory was brought up about when you raise someone, you're actually pulling their alternate person from beyond the gate. I liked that theory, and it crossed my mind earlier.

What's inside the gate? Our world, but what purpose does it serve? The lives from our world flow through the gate as energy for alchemic reactions. That much is known. My theory is basically this.. Do you think those faces and eyes inside the gate are actually the dead souls of people from OUR earth who are to be used as Alchemic energy?
They're the source of the energy, and I guess expanding this theory, they're the ones that will take things via equivalent trade (Al's body). And Wrath was from Amestris (Izumi's child), and was given to the gate. So he's been waiting as one of the souls from the other world, and once Ed entered he was able to take Ed's limbs. So basically, the souls from OUR earth become eligible pre-homunculus!

I always figured that we don't know what's INSIDE the Gate - THROUGH the Gate is our world, but the actual Gate itself seems to operate strangely. For one thing, time is probably absent, or it couldn't show Truth to people. If there's a Gate inside each person, it's probably what's responsible for Alchemy, being what takes the Touka Koukan, and what grants the energy needed for the process.
But if the Homunculus were from the other side, while that would explain why they cannot use Alchemy, it WOULDN'T explain why they do have some memories, or explain the appearance difference. The appearance difference isn't along the same lines as the difference between people from each world - it's totally something different, mainly in the eyes and colouring.

I have NO earthly clue what the faces are, but if Wrath was one of them, they might be the souls of those who were Transmutated back to life, but never given the red stones and thus lost even that form or body, like how Wrath was before he escaped.

We don't know what kind of connection somebody from one side has with their lookalike though. Maybe the humunculi do get some flashes of the other person's life, and that's why it confuses them so much. It's not them at all.

Er - but isn't the point of a homunculus being that they don't actually have souls?

I always gathered that they merely had incomplete souls. Hence the broken, scattered memories/feelings..
