Your heaven is not your ancestors’ heaven

Nice bit in Slate on the idea of heaven or the afterlife. The quote of note for this blog, dear readers:

Emily Dickinson wrote: ” ‘Heaven’—is what I cannot Reach!/ The Apple on the Tree—/ Provided it do hopeless—hang—/ That—”Heaven” is—to Me!”

Ah, yes, for the past decade that “Apple” on the tree has changed shape from time, from the first iPod, to the first iPhone and now the iPad. What can be next?
