My idea of heaven is even simpler: living in a small house in a place like this:




Or this:



with my man and some animals. Walking out every morning to greet the sunlight. Exploring the pure, unspoiled nature, revelling in the simple joys of life. The morning coffee, the mild breeze, the sharp biting cold water, the first snowfall, the moon rising over the mountains, the wild swans, the howl of the wolf. And all that for a long, long time... but not forever....

I think what the OP means when he says "heaven" is what type of heaven could we envision once our time is up from this Earth.

I have a strong fascination to explore the Universe without the limitations that we face as humans.

I least that is what I meant when I cast my vote.

Nice! This certainly matches the type of heaven on Earth that I would enjoy.

At least twice.
The promise is that you are given your own earth by your own design. Then there are the wolves who come and go through all the billions of Earths, and these come and go through people's left eye whether they be trying to move a person one way or the other.

Wolves be there, and what you want is actually obtainable if you become a wolf.

But then I tried imagining eternity. Eternity means that after 100 trillion years, you're still no closer to the end. I think I would probably go nuts after the first 1 trillion years. And yet I'd have no way to escape. Not even suicide would work, since I'd already be dead. I think that would be hell.
You think you would? I thought you already attained that. LOL

Ideally, I'd have:

*The ability to fly anywhere at any speed
*The ability to change my body weight at will
*invulnerability


I'd dive into Jupiter's red spot and essentially skydive through the winds. I'd dive into the atmosphere of other gas giants too. I bet there would be a lot of lightning in there. That could be fun to see.

Then I'd do the same thing, but with the sun. I'd dive into the sun and see what it looks like on the inside.

Then I'd dive into a black hole and do the same thing.

The nice thing about black holes is once inside I could use one to shoot forward in time. I'd shoot forwards a few decades, spend a few years seeing how humanity has changed, then I'd zip a few decades forward again and so on.

Planets are merely islands on the sea of space.
It's little different than the position mankind was in before transcontinental
seafaring took place. Material space has material limits. One could travel
among the stars, and still make no spiritual progress.

Uh-huh.

But if it's all the same to you, I think I'd prefer to find out for myself.

First kiss does not have music. It has humor. At least mine did. One million kisses later, and I still remember that one kiss.

I make wonderful cookies. All kinds. The beauty of a good cookie is each batch can be different.

Today I baked a spice cookie with a bit of Calabasa. I sprinkled the top with smoked cinnamon salt, and smoked sugar using lemon wood chips. I do the smoking myself. I am experimenting.

They were divine. Not a crumb left. I will bake them for my customers as Thanksgiving gifts.
