Take some time and try to imagine what it will be like.
The notion of an eternity in anyplace is a horror only for the fact that it is an eternity.
A 100 year life span for many people would be amazing and, if well lived, quite outstanding.
Now imagine 100 of those lifetimes.
Then 1,000,000 of them {10^6}
1,000,000,000 {10^9}
1,000,000,000,000 {10^12}
1,000,000,000,000,000 {10^15}
1,000,000,000,000,000,000 {10^18}
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 {10^21}
Let us run the numbers faster shall we?
In step of change denoted by the power of three it would take another 26 steps to reach 10^99, close enough {lol} to the number designated 10^100 to begin the next round.
10^100
10^100000
10^100000000
10^100000000000
10^100000000000000
10^100000000000000000
10^100000000000000000000
with that many outstanding lifetimes at your disposal imagine the possibilities you could explore. And we have not even begun since this staggering large number of lifetimes is no more a distance down the road of eternity than was the first lifetime. You wish to have eternal life?
Be careful what you wish for.
