a dumb motherf$£ker and that we shouldn't pay thoughts like this no mind. (ie thoughts do not reflect reality, but only process a small subset of
what is and could be. As illustrated, for example, by the Catholic concept of the Son,The Father and The Holy Ghost all being one and the same thing.

that concept a bit, and see how your brain deals with it. If you're lucky, you'll get a kinda synaptic crash: a minor brain meltdown for a moment.
Playing with paradoxes like that shows up the weaknesses of purely logical thought, and illustrate the fact that we shouldn't take highly abstract
religious concepts like 'Heaven' or 'Hell' too seriously, as it's completely off our conceptual radar-- we have no frame of reference to consider
what those terms acrually mean (even if we did believe in them
