If there is a heaven it might not be like this world. Everything we've heard about it may be an abstraction for something we can't understand. I'm
not saying it is real, but I will share some thoughts I've had in the past about it.
In a heaven you might not be human anymore. You might be a spiritual being or made of light. You might not even be three dimensional anymore. You
could be 2D or 8D or not even have a dimension. You won't know what it's like until you get there. That's the way humans are. Like skydiving. I
could talk to you for 100 years about skydiving, but you won't really understand it until you go skydiving. You may even claim skydiving doesn't
exist or is not logical! Could just be a photoshop right? We don't have pictures of heaven. No wonder we can't understand it. We actually HAVE
pictures of September 11 and we're still trying to understand that! Of course trying to understand an existence with an entirely different set of
physics is going to be illogical to us. That doesn't mean it's not real. It just means we can't comprehend it like I can't understand why you
would jump out of a perfectly good airplane.
However, a spiritual being may not have that problem. They may understand this world fairly easily simply by visualizing it in perfect detail. They
may be able to time travel to see what really happened, or they may be able to be everywhere at once. When they say God is always watching you. Maybe
that's symbolic for, he already knows what you're doing so he doesn't even have to look. If they could visualize that well then they would see
heaven was good.
However, a spiritual being might not even be concerned with if heaven is good or bad. That sounds weird right, but think of this. A lot of fear and
worrying can be traced back simply to our fear of dying. Imagine how different this world would be if we weren't afraid of dying. Just for starters
I'd have a lot less canned goods stashed in my closet. I'd have a lot less fear about my government. I'd probably be more patient with people. If I
can't die, and you cant die then why worry about it? This may be how the dead think. So, maybe that's why heaven is perfect. Not because it's good
or bad, it's just that nobody cares.
And would they want their memories? In a heaven, even if it were perfect, could they be haunted by things that went wrong here? Something or someone
they did wrong in the past or that did them wrong while they WERE alive? Maybe they're better off without memories.
Also, if you assume there's a God, well he knows everything right? EVERYTHING! When one goes to a friend's house to watch movies then if the friend
already owns the movie you probably wouldn't take your copy too. He's already got a copy. If God truly knows EVERYTHING then I wouldn't need to
take my memories. A true God may already have copies for me there. Also, heaven would be for eternity, FOREVER! I can't even remember where I left my
keys last night. How long would you remember even if you had your memories?
Now I personally believe we don't go to "heaven". I believe in something like a new earth paradigm, but that's another topic.
