My biggest regret with this life...

#1OzymandiasIVPosted 7/23/2011 6:57:42 PM
is that I know I won't get to see the vast, vast majority of all the existence of the universe. My perfect afterlife wouldn't be heaven, it'd be exploring all of this:

And seeing what kind of life exists on other planets. This .gif awes me more than any description of God has ever been able to do.

You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.

I will become a necromancer, learn how to live for ever, and we can get all up in outer space.

After the Singularity, my consciousness will be uploaded into the omnipresent data-base.
After the OMEGA POINT, we will be Forever!
We will be a multi-dimensional form of awareness, perceiving not through one set of eyes at one time, but through every possible set of eyes through every aeon. We will be like water, like air, like every particles that exists.

We will become the fabric of the Universe, distorting time and looping ourselfs in and out of existence, so that we may experience every possible way of being, till all permutations have been exhausted.
Then, the cycle begings again.

*ahem*

Excuse me, been dropping those purty tablets again. ;)

And on the first day, God created billions of galaxies just for fun and then went on to put life on only one planet in one solar system in one galaxy.

Well if it makes you feel better, there's probably thousands of other kinds of life who will never get to see this one.

I can relate, TC.

Just thinking about the staggering and untold worlds that lie just beyond our grasp, whilst knowing that I might never experience them, fills me with a deep sense of awe and longing.

That IS heaven, or at least the thing most people think of when they use the word 'heaven'

I dont think the existance of extra-terrestrial life is contradictory to my religion. I dont know or care if aliens exist.

For some reason this made me think of a little kid telling his parents, "I want to be a necromancer when I grow up!!" and I laughed. <_<

I forgot whose video it was that I saw, but it was pretty interesting to find out that we're basically lucky to be able to observe all of this. If we lived a couple of million/billion years in the future (I forgot the actual figure), we wouldn't be able to see even the nearest galaxies, much less the rest of the universe, based on accelerating expansion rates and what not.

We would see nothing but an immense void and have no way to tell that all this other stuff is out there.

Kinda random, but I thought it fit the topic. >_>
