IMAGINE THERE IS NO HELL AND HEAVEN
Would this make us depressed people because there are no golden streets on which we will walk for eternity and leave us in a sad hopeless situation while living this life? Or would it make this life very special and precious; each moment unique, limited and valuable?
Morality is not dependent on the existence of either God or heaven or hell, it’s part of our genes and it allows us to live decent moral lives. But at the same time it opens us many opportunities to see the world from different angles. "Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in,” Stephen Hawking said, he bases his argument on M-theory, an extension of string theory, where 11 dimensions are calculated to exist. Religion and science are two very different creatures and probably we will never know the truth of our existence.
The poster I created for the Digital Decade IV reflects these ideas of being free from the threat of hell and of great variety of potential dimensions that we can’t even imagine and based on breaking the rules and proportions of space that we call reality.
