    Hegel said that every conscious entity has its opposite. Hegel said that opposites get into conflict with each other; later, they fuse into each other, merge, synthesize and equalize their differences — and create a higher platform of life. From this higher platform of life, opposites again arise, and get into conflict again.  They fuse again, and again create an even higher platform of life. They again arise from this platform also, and get into conflict again — Hegel says that this process repeats infinitely — until both the parties involved, reach Heaven.

    Imagine this scenario: You die; you cross through a tunnel, and reach heaven. But in heaven, you find out that the entire planet — that is heaven — is overpopulated. As a result, you figure out instantaneously that you have to find work in heaven, and earn a living, just like it is in the world.

    During your stay, you will gradually find out that the heaven~planet is an exact replica of the planet~earth. You find out that God has deserted heaven~planet, and has created a new planet, has decorated that planet according to his/her/its likings, and is living there.

    In this given setting:— would you start doing politics (i.e., democratic solutions) in heaven — or just accept your fate?

      It's just a concept. Not reality. And you fail to take into account that the universe is ever expanding.                                   Have you read 'all the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full.'

        But due to evaporation, clouds are always emerging from that ocean, and then descending to fill the underground water containers, glaciers, etc. It's a cyclic process. If you close one node of this cycle — then the sea might indeed overflow.

Well, I've got a cane.                                           Sure, you're starting to display a sense of seriousness, instead of a haux when God is involve.                                        Come on Mizbah, I'm the  Headmaster here. When was the universe or rather the earth created? Would you agree it was on the 1st day of October, at 00.00 AM 1 BCE?                                          I saw few hands being raise. What!

                    I'm always open, yet live for the moment and base my life on good sense. Love makes good sense.

                    I hope your heaven ship comes in. Yet if you pick the wrong God , then your heaven pier may collapse.

                    The correct answer to Heaven is the Mormons.
                    Or at least they have the best advertising that says.
                    A good Mormons get to own his own planet with 33 babes. Much better than 72 virgins of the Muslim God.

                  "Loving God"

                  This "loving God" that you mention, is actually the moral laws of the universe combined into a singularity.

                  What I'm talking about is a personal God — a God with a brain.

                  A personal God is bound to be eccentric.

                  "Kant believed that the shared ability of humans to reason should be the basis of morality, and that it is the ability to reason that makes humans morally significant. He, therefore, believed that all humans should have the right to common dignity and respect. Margaret L. Eaton argues that, according to Kant's ethics, a medical professional must be happy for their own practices to be used by and on anyone, even if they were the patient themselves.

                  Because Kant viewed rationality as the basis for being a moral patient—one due moral consideration—he believed that animals have no moral rights. Animals, according to Kant, are not rational, thus one cannot behave immorally towards them. Kant believed being cruel to them was wrong because our behaviour might influence our attitudes toward human beings: if we become accustomed to harming animals, then we are more likely to see harming humans as acceptable."

    ... and "In my Father's house are many mansions."
    I think that heaven is very endlessly huge and can never be full.
    I think there are amazing colors there, not seen on earth. I also tend to believe there are cosmic sounds and harmonies of tones. I think musicians hang out in that mansion. I believe they are mentally composing and creating music using the earthly method.

    I think souls who have similar goals, aspirations and temperaments are together in separate realms in heaven. In what form? In bodies made of light. We keep the blue-print of our bodies after we pass on. The blueprint is the human light-body.

    Some souls who never found harmony or happiness on earth or who were too busy with their own selfish interests and never found the joy of loving, helping and serving their neighbors or loved ones are also together. They are fighting, swearing at each other, conning and competitively tricking whoever will play. They one-up one another and have great wars. Over what? Maybe astral realms and supposed ownership of realms or planets. They will incarnate on earth ready for wars, either good or bad, depending on their consciousness.

    I believe consciousness evolves toward love and compassion, away from selfishness and greed. Great joy is in store for those who forgive, hold no resentments and accept all fellows as they would like to be accepted. Woe to the critical who can never accept the imperfections or others. Woe to the self-oriented who never or rarely discover the joy of helping their neighbors.

    Those who have discovered the joy of loving relationships and service to humanity will exist together in their "mansions." They smile at one another, sing and float. They are given the gift of creativity and will be able to manipulate colors of light, taste and prepare delicious astral vegetables and fruits.

    Eventually, even these happy souls get bored and restless and decide to go back to earth ... perhaps to follow their loved ones who went back before them.

    Something like that.

    This is just your imagination. God has perfectly created everything in the universe. Everything from humans to insects runs on a complete system. Yes, the question arises as to why we human beings fail when God has made everything complete for us. Because God Almighty has given some authority to man. Like thinking, understanding things, using intellect, and making decisions. And when he fails to exercise his authority properly, he begins to blame his fate for his failure, which is his greatest oblivion. 
     
    If God can create distinct fingerprints for every human being, can't He also create an infinite paradise?
     
    When God has commanded us, humans, to do justice, so he himself will surely do justice.
     
    I am sure that the one who deserves heaven will definitely get it. 
     
    And what kind of politics can there be when everything is recorded and there are only decisions to be made by God. 
     
    If God had mental problems, we humans today would be eating grass instead of advancing in the world of technology.

I think it was initially musical instrucments. Then, followed with swords that throw out Satan and his cohorts out of the presense of God.                                Today, we have various tools-iron, silver, copper to be worked into any technology useful for mankind.

    I find the topic of discussion quite interesting. And that is because the question seems to assume that heaven is a physical reality (which it isn’t, according to my beliefs) and that the soul of man is also physical (which it isn’t). According to my Bahá’í teachings, the afterlife realm is spiritual, and the soul of man is also spiritual. Being spiritual means they are not bound by time and space, and so the question of heaven being full doesn’t arise in the first place.

    Bahá’u’lláh, Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, wrote a lot about the soul of man and the next life. Here are two short descriptions of the soul in the Bahá’í Writings:

    “Verily I say, the human soul is exalted above all egress and regress. It is still, and yet it soareth; it moveth, and yet it is still. It is, in itself, a testimony that beareth witness to the existence of a world that is contingent, as well as to the reality of a world that hath neither beginning nor end.” (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, #LXXXII)

    “The soul is not a combination of elements, it is not composed of many atoms, it is of one indivisible substance and therefore eternal. It is entirely out of the order of the physical creation; it is immortal!” (‘Abdu'l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 90)

    The only way we can reason about anything is by having created concepts about it -- and so we conceptualize about "something" like heaven and soul, which are merely our mental constructs. Just because some famous people were doing the same in the theater of their minds and made it public -- doesn't add a bit to what we could possibly "KNOW" about those unfathomable realms.
    Religion is all about believing, not knowing. Knowing means that 2+2=4, and people of every religion agree -- whereas believing separates them into different "mathematics".
    All these concepts and their versions are still up for grabs, since no one has come back from heaven to give us a reliable report. As a matter of fact, no one knows anything in that department, we are just playing in our minds with these' and other intellectual toys.
    At times it all grows into intellectual arrogance, when people claim that "theirs is the only correct view". In my modest opinion, at this level of consciousness evolution we are not wired yet to process those other realms. But guessing is cheap, so we can have as many theories and beliefs as it pleases our imagination.

    Anti-God people abounds anywhere. It's  God who begins the rule of 1 + 1 are 2, or 2 x 2 are 4.                                                        But when man began to teach 1 + 1 are zero, and 2 x 2 are zero likewise, God arrive on the scene to examine  His candidates. God found the mind already warped in relation to the soul.                                     Now that the mind can't understand certain things in relation to the Godhead, what should be done? Is man to teach his God?

    I think it is impossible to speculate an afterlife however your scenario does not sound like heaven, unless you’re a Mormon.

    Let's give a twist to this question:

    "Think about what would happen if we discover in the hereafter that hell is overflowing with people, and as a result, we are given a free pass to Heaven". smile big_smile
