Try thinking beyond the relatively recent religious construct of Heaven.
Before religious institutions existed, our distance ancestors discovered the concept of the future as “something better that could come out of this imperfect present moment” (where all of the other unconscious animals exist).
They looked transcendentally, above and beyond self, creating increasingly-organized societies and cultures; and came up with visions of Peace Unity Joy Continuance and Love.
It’s been suggested that any positive looking to the future is inevitably going to bump into the archetype of Heaven, even if just as a wiishful thought.
My question is: do you think the religious concept of Heaven dissuades people from exploring this concept from any other context?
