This is the gate of hell. It leads to the outlands. Many people sit outside it and refuse to enter.
These are the outlands. The thing in the sky is the city.
Hell? You simply walk in. Not everyone is given the choice though. There are many roads in and out. But if you go in through the gate you cannot leave through the gate.
The city in the sky moves over the out lands. It appears many different ways over many different places.
This is the desert spirit. He mimics infinity. I have never met him myself.
Perhaps a much more fierce spirit is this one. It cleanses your soul through fire. The weak often perish by it's hands.
The city intersects with the outlands in events known as crossings. A piece of the outland is picked up by the city and carried with it for awhile.
This is the old world. The land as it was before the city.
This is one of the old kingdoms. They were all destroyed by the city.
This is what the whole city looks like on the inside. The lower part is the outlands that were taken by the city. The people who live here do not know that they were taken by the crossing (for the most part). The red orb is the city proper, and the blue star is the throne.
This is the keeper. It is his job to see that the city survives. A very powerful being, he is a living part of the city itself. Only people who have died the full-death or the half-death may pass him.
The city is a vast expanse that is easy to get lost in. A very advanced place with many wonders.
The people of the city are beings of pure energy. But they choose to take the form of humans. Many of them are docile and happy.
And this is the throne. It used to be that no one was allowed to enter the throne.
All the land, wept with thee
Pooling rain, for the rainbow tree
It's seed, both far and wide
Clear light, with all abides
And there, the distant gleam
Is love, and joyous dream
can you expand on that? do you mean closer to purgatory in the sense that it isn't just endless mutilation and torture? also, not that i expect to get a decent answer, but how do you know all of this?
What does an acorn feel if it is denied from becoming a great oak? It does not suffer, it feels no winters, or sickness, or hardship. Instead those things were taken from it. It feels empty, it becomes empty.
interesting. so you're saying that hell is the forced repression of our true potential? and if so, then what is our true potential? i certainly feel more like an acorn than an oak right now
To know what one wants completely means surrendering yourself to your spirit. I usually call this the "half-death" because it involves the full rejection of existential pain. To those who die the half-death, decisions become meaningless, they already know what they're going to do before they do it (at an unconscious level). It is a type of harmony.
What do you desire more than anything? It is a harder question to answer then you may think.
Once you do nothing can stop you. You will be shapeless like wind. Formless like water. You will smile for a thousand eternities because pain and pleasure will be one and the same.
As I said the throne is now open. All will face judgment. All will be purified. Such feelings are the consequence of the old age. An age now dead. You have but simply to wait. Fate will greet you anyway.
sorry to keep bugging you but i find this conversation to be really interesting.
>All will face judgment. All will be purified.
>You have but simply to wait. Fate will greet you anyway.
are you referring to death?
also what does it mean that the throne is open? and why only now?
I have no idea why it opened. I just know that it is. It used to be closed, no one was allowed inside. Now many have been there.
>are you referring to death?
I'm not referring to death, rather purification. All shall know every feeling, from the worst pain to the greatest joy. The world will be consumed by light.
would you say 1mg is heroic?
my friend's brother took that amount and didn't come down for about half a week - don't think he's touched any drugs since
sounded scary (but then he also lives in Brixton)
