“When at the end of life we who by swords, axes, cleavers
go as heroes to Valhalla, the rest go to Hel.”
“When at the end of life we the true believers
go as saints to Heaven, the rest go to Hell.”
“Our memory is all that we are.
When at the end of life we are remembered,
we still exist for as long as our memory lasts.
Remember us! We are no more than memories of our pasts.”
When, at the end, the helmet of this life is lifted away,
the Virtual Reality of “human” fades to grey,
will you find yourself in a world fresh, rich and deep,
an environment more meaningful, truer, greater?
(And is it somewhere you go even now, in sleep?)
Surely behind the simulation must be a Simulator.
