Two thoughts

This morning, I had two interesting thoughts.

The first pertains to a remark I heard by a coworker 13 years ago. “If heaven is real,” she said, “I don’t want to go there. It would be boring.” This morning, I had a thought that, given that God is omnipotent, the possibilities for heaven are limitless. Specifically, one could conceive that each room in the kingdom of heaven might be its own universe, with its own space, its own galaxies, its own planets, its own flora and fauna. Maybe not exactly like that, but that’s one possibility that shows what an amazing and interesting place it will be. No, Sarah, heaven will not be boring.

The second thought was about the idea of multiple universes that is currently fashionable. If there are other universes, can one universe visit the inhabitants of another universe? Probably not, which is sad. But, perhaps we will see each other in the kingdom of heaven? That is another reason why heaven will not be boring.

She thought too small.

It is amazing how little we actually know.

I got 'hung up' on current thinking re. dark matter, dark energy and the CERN Hadron Collider.

You think big.
