Hello everybody, thanks for tuning in my name is Imabench and I am your host. Tonight, I am asking you how you would design heaven and why you would design it in that way by asking you a series of questions about what your heaven would be like. Lets get started,

Where would you put it?

How many people would you admit into heaven?

What standards are there for getting in?

Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?

Would people live in families or by themselves?

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

Would people even need to have food?

Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?

What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?

Do people get wings or no wings?

Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?

Would you allow pets into Heaven?

Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?

What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?

Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

Its in its own dimension

How many people would you admit into heaven?

Most people get in. No evil people like Hitlers, serial killers ect. People get better heavens if they are better people.


Would people live in families or by themselves?

Kinda both, you don't really have a house, you just float about and can teleport to your family and stuff

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

There prime, if you die young you can grow into your prime in heaven

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

You can eat if you want but don't have too

Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?


Of course! But if you killed someone as a drunk driver no alcohol

What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

Say YOLO

Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?

Where whatever you want

Do people get wings or no wings?

Most people get wings, except the people close to the cutoff point

Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?

Yeah, you can watch earth like a movie. Watch instant replays of all times

Would you allow pets into Heaven?

Yes

Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?

No bathroom
What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?

Watch earth, talk to others, reminisce about living, play hobbies sports, watch the earth, rest

Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

Yeah, a bunch of things

In the middle of hell.

everyone.

none. Just be yourself (as if you have the freewill not to :P)

Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?

All people are equals and would have equal happiness in my heaven.

Would people live in families or by themselves?

That's absurd, everyone is a family.

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

Age 0 to age 1. Only a baby can understand what pure happiness is.

Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

Gates? to keep out what? All creatures who were victims of life's determined sequence deserve entry

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

What kind of heaven makes people work after they're dead?

Would people even need to have food?

nope.

Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?

NO. No drugs or any other foreign catalyst of pleasure.

In another dimension/universe.

How many people would you admit into heaven?
Everyone

What standards are there for getting in?
None :D (But people won't want to do bad stuff anymore)

Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?
Equals

Would people live in families or by themselves?
It's your choice

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?
Young adult age.

Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?
Heaven would be the whole universe of heaven. It's limits would pretty much be an impossible to pass border.

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?
It's free for all. Food appears in front of ya when you want it. Of course, you don't have to eat :D

Would people even need to have food?
No, but you can have it if you want.

Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?
Absolutely, whatever you want :D

What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?
By going to heaven, people would only have will to do good there. So you wouldn't do anything bad by definition.

Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?
Wear whatever you want :D

Do people get wings or no wings?
Nah, you can fly superman style :P

Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?
Yep, if they want.

Would you allow pets into Heaven?
Of course.

Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?
You shouldn't have to worry about it, unless you actually like spending time in the bathroom... in which case, sure :D

What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?
Everything. Literally, everything. Oh, and you can do whatever you want there. You can have super-hero powers if you want :P

Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?
Yep. Well, there won't be much need for libraries 'cuz you could just make a book pop into existence, mute the world and read.

That would be awesome...

Where would you put it?

It could be whatever the person wanted it to be. Beach. Mountains. Suburban neighborhood. Whatever.


How many people would you admit into heaven?

No limit.


What standards are there for getting in?

I could go on, but if you were a murderer, rapist, or a child molester, it's hell for you ;)


Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?

Everyone's equal.


Would people live in families or by themselves?

Families.


What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

Prime.


Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

No borders. It'd be it's own dimension ;)


Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

Nope. It's heaven! Everything you need magically appears!


Would people even need to have food?

If they wished to eat, then they could. But it's heaven! You don't have to eat! Technically, you're already dead!


Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?

Yes! But wine, not whine! ;)


What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

Murder, rape, molesting, lying, stealing, the basics.


Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?

Nah, whatever you want! ;)


Do people get wings or no wings?

No wings.


Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?

Sure. Plus, I've always wanted to be a poltergeist!


Would you allow pets into Heaven?

Yep.


Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?

It's heaven! No more annoying bathroom breaks! Unless you're a weirdo, and you enjoy taking a sh*t, in which case, knock yourself out!


What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?

Sure, whatever they enjoy!


Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

Yep!

Where would you put it?

It wouldn't be a location, but a conscious state.


How many people would you admit into heaven?

No limit.


What standards are there for getting in?

Everyone would experience this conscious state, but the bliss level would be dependent on how well you treated other people. If you treated other people like dirt, then you would feel no bliss and exist as a conscious state left alone with just his/ her own thoughts for eternity without God's presence, which could then be called hell if one so wished to do so.


Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?

Yes, people who lived lives more "morally" would enjoy heaven more luxuriously.


Would people live in families or by themselves?

It wouldn't be a location, but a conscious state. The more bliss you enjoyed, the more closer to God you would be. Family would be important in this life, but it would pale in comparison to the bliss on tap from the love of the creator.


What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

This question is irrelevant to the concept of heaven I am making up here.


Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

Heaven would be a conscious state, not real estate with earth like structures, with regards to walls and things of that nature.


Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

Food would have no meaning in this conscious state, because the experience would be completely unlike what we experience in this conscious state.


Would people even need to have food?

No.


Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?

There would be no need for Earth like things, the bliss felt from the presence of God would be much greater.


What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

Everyone experience this conscious state, but the bliss level and likeness to God, would be different.


Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?

Clothes have no meaning in this conscious state.


Do people get wings or no wings?

Wings have no meaning in this conscious state.


Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?

There would be no need, the bliss felt from the love of God would be all that mattered in the state of heaven.


Would you allow pets into Heaven?

Only conscious beings.


Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?

It would be something people would not have to worry about anymore.


What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?

These things would not be relevant, due to the bliss on tap and the love of God.


Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

Same answer as above.

If God and heaven actually exist, I would ideally like heaven to be like the one I described.

Where would you put it?

It would have it's own universe.

How many people would you admit into heaven?

As many as would believe in me and follow my law.

What standards are there for getting in?

Love your fellow man. Listen to me when I tell you something. Read and follow your owner's manual that I will instruct certain people to write for you. You will fail on occassion but can be forgiven if you aren't prideful and admit that you messed up and actually try to do better.

Does everybody live as equals or do people who lived their lives more morally get to enjoy heaven more luxuriously?

I'll tell them what is moral, those who choose to make up their own will have their own level which they might consider a little less Heavenly. They would work and gain enlightenment. There are three levels. They could level up, or stay down, their choice.

Would people live in families or by themselves?

There would be no need for separation into units like families, we'd all be one big happy family sharing the same big Heaven.
You would know and be with your loved one's from earth though, assuming they made the cut. There is no need to live apart, but each person would have a place for solitude.

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

They would be the age they were when they died. The young would age a bit in Heaven so they could become wiser. The elderly, and ill would regress to an age where they were mentally sound and physically fit.

Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

Since we're in our own universe, I don't think we need walls.
Each level would have it's own planet.

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

That would be done by those who are in the less Heavenly levels and are working to gain enlightenment.

Would people even need to have food?

It isn't needed, but it's there for enjoyment.

Would you allow beer and whine up in heaven if the answer to the previous question is yes?

Wine, one glass per day with dinner, for those who want it. No beer, hard liquor, or drugs.

What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

Depends on which level you are on. The most Heavenly needs no rules.

Is there a dress code for heaven where everyone wears white or are you a little more lax with the dress code policy?

There is no need for clothes at all.

Do people get wings or no wings?

Wings for people who I send to do covert ops on earth, and for those transporting supplies from the lower levels.
Those at the highest level will themselves where they want to be.

Would you allow people to return to Earth in spirit form to check up on the ones they left behind?

They would know without returning to earth.

Would you allow pets into Heaven?

Sure

Would people go to the bathroom in heaven or is that something people wont have to worry about anymore?

Nope, we'll have none of that. Belching and farting will happen though. There's humor there that just can't be replaced.

What exactly would people be able to do in heaven? will there be sports venues like football, racing, or soccer?

Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

Lower level will have work, and re-education. No entertainment.
Mid-level will have easier work, but have reading and educational tv.
Upper level will enjoy whatever they wish. Basically their own idea of Heaven will be realized.

I'm surprised you didn't even ask about relationships and sex.

Sussex

Everyone. Just some people would not get to the VIP zones.

What standards are there for getting in?

*tumbleweed*

VIP Zones and special powers (like being able to go to the stripper factory and ride the beer log flume, as well as being able to magically make evil people ferrets)

Would people live in families or by themselves?

Do what ya like.

What age would people be when they enter your heaven? would it be the same age they died or would they all be in their prime?

You can magic yourself to be whatever you like, unless you're a douchhe. Then you are stuck as a ferret.

Would you surround your heaven with pearly gates or would you prefer a giant white wall? maybe something else?

A giant Va-J-J.

Is it a society where people have to work and grow food or does food magically appear for them when they gather to eat?

Magic food, unless you're a douchhe then you can only magic up bread and arse feces.

Would people even need to have food?

Food tastes nice...

BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER

Yes please.


What wouldnt people be allowed to do in heaven?

'Batin. No 'batin allowed. Also no being French.

Everyone else looks like they're in James Bond if they're naked but anything goes.

Do people get wings or no wings?

Chicken Wings? Yes please.

No. They get a TV to do that.

Ever seen that family guy episode when they go to the utopian atheist society? That kinda stuff happens.

EVERYONE MUST WORSHIP ME MOAR

...Anything you like, except syncronised swimming. That's a shT sport...

Would there be other things like movie theaters, libraries, etc?

All films will be watchable 3 months after release. Film Makers need to make money too, you know...
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.
