Would you?

If heaven\hell was defined as, "living your exact life over to eternity", would you?

This of course presupposes you are dead, and there is this alternative or nothingness after death.

Personal thoughts:

Pretty cool because it gives meaning and priority to your actions. If you wouldn't want to do the same action over and over to eternity, then is it a really meaningful action?

Your life could potentially be the greatest thing, or the worst thing.

I love Nietzsche.

If you truly mean eternity, then no. You would be infinite, you would experience everything. Nothing would have meaning.

So the afterlife would be exactly what you did in your actual life? What's the point in that?

No. Because that would mean you're not totally free in your afterlife if you have to do the same thing you did over and over again when you were free.

Are you:

a) Forced to watch everything over again, helpless
b) Redo your entire life exactly the same, second for second, but you don't remember your previous life

a) seems like torture because of the whole eternity thing
b) is whatever because you don't remember anything
