I don't care what others say of hell we are talking about the greeks here.. The Pit does not contain fire.. That would be a luxury..
Hell is not a punishment, it is a magnet more like.. I am in a different body than you.. It suits me.
These "places" are infinite when in eternity..
Space and time are ONE thing. Think about this.. I am only speaking physics here not beliefs.. Inverse proportionality.. This only works within the
"other" realms the dream lands the underworlds..
You only think of hell as punishment for the fear of pain... It is as it is.. It's not good or bad as your human mind wants it to be.
If I drive off a cliff and start falling should I then ask "who is punishing me?" Or should I know that I did that??
Everything is relative, however, When you are above space time you cannot be relative to size or place...
There is no place you can point at and say that's hell or that is heaven.. It's not in space as we know it.
I didn't contradict myself.. These words are all words based on 3d minds thinking.. I would have to speak a whole new language that doesn't rely on
directions and places to describe things.. They called it the underworld because it feels like you fall to get there.. This is more akin to shrinking
into the middle out of 3d than falling down... There isn't any way I can explain what these "places" (see that word is wrong) Are..
There is no physical movement though.. It feels like there is because a soul that Identifies itself as having a locality views other places as
something it must go to.. It's a mental shift, but feels like moving down.. Like going through a divorce.. Through? I'm OVER him. over? these words
are meant to imply distance to imply time.. Over implies a distance of thought from someone else, Distance?
Fire purifies everything ever heard of charcoal filters? There would be no point to burn except to remove the impurites.. You could view it as
punishment, but if you go out and play in the mud your mom might hose you off outside, not as punishment, but because you cannot enter the house
dirty.. Why should a dirty soul be around clean ones to dirty and corrupt them?
It's basically like this... How heavy are you? the lighter something is the more it will float in a fluid.. You are like this something.. This fluid
is the "underworld" It's not that someone comes along and pushes your head under water if they think you look heavy, it's that you are heavy and you
sink into the abyss...
They viewed it as punishment because they personified the whole thing. People have actions... Without all the Gods mixed in there is no punishment.
