Subject: In Supernatural, Heaven is an infinity of instance based bliss. Like the Bobby - [Edit Post] 1 0
Following the advice of Castiel, Bobby locates a loose thread in his carpet, a "flaw" in his Heaven that marks his way out. Pulling the thread opens a door into the rest of Heaven and Bobby heads out into it. Bobby finds himself in an endless hallway full of doors of other Bobby Singers. Shortly after his escape, the angels detect it and sound an alarm. To buy time, Bobby releases the other Bobby Singers from Heaven and incites them against the arriving angels, allowing him to get past them.
That was a funny episode. It was also an interesting take on Heaven basically being a place to contain all the variations of possibilities that would result in you being in heaven. Like infinite multiple universes all converge to Heaven kind of thing.
“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or my grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantative content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.” -Carl Sagan 1995
