LIFE: The Good Place
Remember someone mentioning this show (The Good Place) to me a year or so ago after a chat about my own beliefs etc- if you've not seen it then unfortunately this'll be a spoiler because the basic premise is that when people have died, they find themselves in the afterlife believing it to be Heaven.

As things unravel, turns out that it isn't Heaven at all, but rather an elaborate system of deception designed to exploit each person's core weaknesses, fears, and annoyances. It's a new form of personal torture, all wrapped up in a warm fuzzy bow.

Anyone familiar with the Gnostic conception of life on Earth can resonate with that- history is replete with examples of humans believing that life here on Earth was nothing more than amusement for 'the gods'...

The gods being the archons- who are also purported to rule over the afterlife (astral) realms... the sole purpose of which is energy generation and harvesting (via emotional manipulation).

It's an easy watching lightweight show perfect for the masses but exploring some pretty interesting philosophical concepts when you scratch down into it.

For sure that's how my life feels at times lol.

Re: LIFE: The Good Place
After watching season 1 and the beginning of season 2 I tend to agree that this may represent our predicament.

Lol. Thanks for the delayed one-star bandit reply friend!

Yeah it sucks on a surface level but it's multifaceted- Think about it, and how you'd introduce these concepts to a sub-100 IQ population... looked upon in those terms I think it does a pretty good job.

To add, it's something that I've been able to watch with my 13 yr old daughter- she loves it- and further discussion opens up from there.

In it's own way, it's genius.

The same writer/director also did the original series Forever which is on Amazon Prime. (‘Unfamiliar territory’ = the afterlife)

Ah ok thanks for that- a new one on me- will check it out.

It interests me I guess, the way that they put things right in front of us and still the majority will never get it...

Thinking it through to its logical conclusion... that's probably what I would do in fairness.

You can lead a horse to water and all that...

This guy seems to be on it- noticed he's picked up a lot of stuff that we were posting about years back and expanded upon it

Major truth drop here with this show. We're in a spiritual matrix with all sorts of forking bullshirt and distraction beyond belief.

Some "gods" live as humans.

For all you know, a being with a direct link to the ultimate, supreme, creator, exists as a humam today.

Yeah that was my impression also- in no way was this kind of fluff tv something I'd ordinarily think of watching but like I say, someone mentioned it to me on the basis of some of the things I'd been talking about... so I gave it a go.

Forking bullshirt lol... :)

Re: LIFE: The Good Place
Especially as the series progresses and they go into the forced amnesia etc...

For me, it's an accessible way to introduce people to these concepts at least.
