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.
