The Perfect Place to Go After Death

Influenced by what we observe, we choose to preach the observations that we agree with.

Here's my view on the next stage. If there was a heaven I wouldn't want to go there for eternity. I wouldn't want a conscious mind that went on forever. Just take vision for an example. If you were just a pair of eyes that could observe anything would there be any differences between looking at emptiness forever or looking at an infinite amount of pictures forever? Would there be a difference between feeling happy forever or having a wildly-ossolating-never-ending-emotional rollercoaster ride?

There was no suffering before we were born and I would hope that I could return to that state of not being anywhere or anything.

My idea of suicide is crazy too. For those who take their lives, they get to regret that action for eternity. but not in a suffering way. They are given a short memory span of just enough time to regret that action, and won't know how they've been there. But then again, it's not fair to be punished for eternity for something we did in a finite state of time. My thoughts are always contradicting.

im not sure i agree 100% with what you are saying but it is an interesting thaught to say the least. i would like to think that there is a place that i may see the ones i have loved and lost. i have friends that have commited suicide and as a cristian its hard to phatham a place called heaven that didnt include these people.
