Can you imagine really living in Middle Earth?

Been thinking about heaven a bit extra the last couple days… When I start to get really depressed, I tend to start fantasizing about heaven, and how I would much rather be there at the moment. I have sometimes told myself, if there was just a button I could push and be painlessly whisked away to heaven, I would push it without even making a second guess… 

I think a lot has just been going on in my subconscious lately, because I really wasn’t consciously thinking that negative over the holidays, but I just think old habits die hard… that my subconscious is still dealing with those old thoughts, keeping them at bay and deleting them… So, hopefully this will be my last holiday season where I have a bout of severe depression… getting there… just have to remind myself that I will be happy again and these feelings will go away… 

But, besides that depressing introduction to this blog post… a recurring thought about heaven popped up again… In my opinion, pretty much everything is possible… I think when we get to heaven and want to go on adventures and have experiences and things like that, that we will be able to immerse ourselves at whatever level we want… For instance, say you wanted to be Super Man, I believe you could go into the zone (dream world) and act and look like superman but still be consciously aware of your separate existence… Or I think you could say I want to actually be and think I am really super man for a year or for whatever length of time. You can go all the way in an experience like that if you want…. 

Which then I think of Lord of the Rings or Everquest… and I think, how much would I really want to be a part of that world?… that world is absolutely nuts when you think about it, can you imagine actually seeing and fighting a real orc or some kind of monster? With a sword for that matter… It would be so intense, I would think we would have to build up over time to a certain level of immersion… baby steps… then maybe eventually fully immersing… maybe… 

It is just crazy and fun to think about anyways… Harry potter, star trek, star wars, super heroes, etc… I think it is all on the table… 

I think for eternity I will always still play MMORPG’s on a computer though… to me, a game like EQ2 really is a little piece of heaven, it will be so much more fun when I can actually enjoy it with other people and see my various ideas come to life… I definitely don’t need to always be overly immersed in something to enjoy it… actually fighting an orc or living in that world would seem like overkill for prolonged periods of time… I definitely like the experience developed from behind a computer…  

Some thoughts on this day anyways…
