Steepholm's Dream Diary: 31

I woke in a strange place this morning. Well, strange, to me - it was actually the clean and friendly Holiday Inn in Bolton, but the point is that it didn't have internet for the laptopless, so the dream diary has had to wait until evening, with the result that I remember very little of the wild phantasmagoria that filled my sleeping hours. However, this remains...

My brother is explaining his ideas about the afterlife.* According to him, everyone goes to heaven and lives in bliss for eternity. Actually, though, there is one proviso. You are not allowed to wonder whether this happiness is ever going to end. If you do, God will notice and be so offended at your lack of faith in the infinitude of his benevolence that he will promptly cast you into the pit.

I'm not very impressed at this vision, which makes heaven sound like a very tense place indeed, and God far too touchy for comfort.

* This is quite out of character.
