Perhaps made most famous by Christianity, but is also in Judaism and Islam (Egyptians too, I think) and possibly others, heaven and hell seem to be
the main subjects in these Religions and is used well as a tether to stop people from disbelieving.
But where do they originate? I haven't properly researched this, in fact I haven't researched it at all, but this is what I think.
In this current life, we experience heaven and hell but we don't call them that. Some people suffering from severe mental illness live with voices
mocking them, some people live their lives with no food or money or house, etc, THIS is hell as we experience it. So, it would only make sense that
the idea of hell came from our own inner-battles.
Heaven on the other hand, is a good description of how we feel in moments of euphoria. Such as when you fall in love or your first child is born.
Other times we seem to drift in between the two, such as when we have an adrenaline rush in an extreme situation.
This, to me, explains the people who have OOBEs and perceive Heaven. Also those who experience demon experiences. It is also how we came up with
Heaven and Hell.
It is all a manifestation of our own emotions that was written in a way to seem like physical places, but they're not, they're inside of us.
