When I was very young, I used to get upset thinking about spending an eternity in Heaven. It's one thing to just say "I'll be there forever", but to think literally I will be there for a hundred billion years, and there will still be an endless number of a hundred billion years after that. It made me so upset I'd get sick.

And I know that it will be wonderful and perfect and God know what we need to be happy, so I don't worry, but I also have sort of realized for myself that time is a bizarre, worldly limitation. If it exists in the afterlife, I think it's incredibly different.

I think a lot of the debate here is kind of skewed because we're all operating on our limited understandings of having always lived in a world where time is this strict linear line.
