Will it be warm?
Or will it be cold?
Will it be crowded?
it will be weird at first
Well, it's only weird the first time.

Or so they say.

Will it be lonely?
Will we suffer?
Or feel nothing at all?

If hell really is a place of eternal torment I think it would be similar to what Christians call purgatory.

I hope it's like the hell from that twilight zone episode, where hell is actually everything you've ever desired but so much that it you grow to hate it.

Paradoxically, endless unconsciousness is the worst hell for me. Im down for physical torture. An eternity to learn to focus through duress and contemplate the mysteries of existance sounds better than simply ceasing to be. So bring it Satan you fucking cocksucker. I will Pollyanna the shit out of hell.
That is one theory I've always loved. Makes the world a little more surreal viewing this as the pit of hell.

I think some of the Hindu's have a version of that.

I completely agree.

Maybe I'll see you around down under.
Well, fuck.
Darkness. The only light comes from glowing embers that litter the ground.
You're in a narrow tunnel (it's a maze actually, but you can't tell when you're in it) Lots of dead ends and booby traps. The traps are the sinister part. If you end up in one, you are stuck in it forever. You somehow never get used to the pain but you can never escape it.
If you manage to avoid the traps, you may come upon an opening. This opening is so small that you have to crawl through. Inside there was a presence. The walls move as if part of one giant serpent, a serpent with dull glowing yellow eyes.
So if Earth is Hell, what is actually happening when we die?
Go on.

I'm listening.
If I go to Hell I know the exact hell I would start in, the Hell of the Sullen. The sullen (those who are constantly gloomy, who shun human contact) are damned to live at the bottom of the river Styx in the mud. Forever drowning and isolated, fixated on their own suffering.
We're in hell.

What is more important is to figure out what comes after this. More hell? Or is this a place where you can redeem yourself?
I hope there's music, no matter how shitty it might be.
It will bé more like 9gag
Well, if I ever happen to be sailing by, I'll throw you a coin.

I won't forget you, Anon.
Redemption only comes in Purgatory. In Hell there is no hope for redemption.
Hell would probably be you reliving some awful life here on earth. Like living as a chicken in a commercial farm, or some other creature that just exists in pain it's entire life. Living through the holocaust or the bubonic plague as it ravaged Europe.

Bright side is that once you've lived the life of every living thing over the course of time in every possible timeline you'll probably attain enlightenment or something.
Oh you will forget about me, there is no compassion in Hell. Everyone is too busy obsessing over their own pain to care for anyone else.

The serpent was near the end of my dream. I saw some of the coils and the yellow eyes. It looked directly at me, as if letting me know it was there and could devour me at any moment but never did. I crawled back out of the chamber and continued to travel the darkness. I did find one more interesting thing, but I doubt you want to hear about hope

If you're in hell, no. You'd just feel like you're dying all the time, your breathing restricted and that constant fear of being trapped in an enclosed space. Only instead of dying it would just continue on and on in the dark.

I guess if you did ever get used to it, your conscious would just reset and you'd start the whole thing over again from the beginning with no recollection of your past trials or tribulations.

Midway upon the journey of our life

For the straight-forward pathway had been lost.

But not so much, that did not give me fear
A lion’s aspect which appeared to me.

With head uplifted, and with ravenous hunger,
So that it seemed the air was afraid of him;

“Abandon every hope, ye who enter here.”

These words in sombre colour I beheld
Written upon the summit of a gate;
Ive got an idea for a hell punishment. maybe being chained to the ground, not able to move, with your mouth forced open, your tongue pinned down and your nose pinched shut. Then someone puts a funnel in your mouth and pours draino in, so you either have to drink it to breathe or you wont drink it and will inhale draino. Either of which would cause intense agony. This is based on the serial killer who injected draino into his victims throats.
more of like it is now. because hell cant think of a better punishment than it is to be human on earth

An old man, hoary with the hair of eld,
Crying: “Woe unto you, ye souls depraved!

Their colour changed and gnashed their teeth together,
As soon as they had heard those cruel words.

The human race, the place, the time, the seed
Of their engendering and of their birth!

Thereafter all together they drew back,
Bitterly weeping, to the accursed shore,
Which waiteth every man who fears not God.

Charon the demon, with the eyes of glede,
Beckoning to them, collects them all together,
Beats with his oar whoever lags behind.

Four mighty shades I saw approaching us;
Semblance had they nor sorrowful nor glad.

To say to me began my gracious Master:
“Him with that falchion in his hand behold,
Who comes before the three, even as their lord.

That one is Homer, Poet sovereign;
He who comes next is Horace, the satirist;
The third is Ovid, and the last is Lucan.”

There standeth Minos horribly, and snarls;
Examines the transgressions at the entrance;
Judges, and sends according as he girds him.

I say, that when the spirit evil-born
Cometh before him, wholly it confesses;
And this discriminator of transgressions

Seeth what place in Hell is meet for it;
Girds himself with his tail as many times
As grades he wishes it should be thrust down.

Always before him many of them stand;
They go by turns each one unto the judgment;
They speak, and hear, and then are downward hurled.

The infernal hurricane that never rests
Hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine;
Whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them.

When they arrive before the precipice,
There are the shrieks, the plaints, and the laments,
There they blaspheme the puissance divine.

I understood that unto such a torment
The carnal malefactors were condemned,
Who reason subjugate to appetite.
This seems to be a common answer.

I hope this is so, because I'm having a great time on Earth.

That will we hear, and we will speak to you,
While silent is the wind, as it is now.”

Of Launcelot, how Love did him enthral.
Alone we were and without any fear.

Full many a time our eyes together drew
That reading, and drove the colour from our faces;
But one point only was it that o’ercame us.

When as we read of the much-longed-for smile
Being by such a noble lover kissed,
This one, who ne’er from me shall be divided,

Kissed me upon the mouth all palpitating.
Galeotto was the book and he who wrote it.
That day no farther did we read therein.”

And all the while one spirit uttered this,
The other one did weep so, that, for pity,
I swooned away as if I had been dying,

And fell, even as a dead body falls.

His mouths he opened, and displayed his tusks;
Not a limb had he that was motionless.

And my Conductor, with his spans extended,
Took of the earth, and with his fists well filled,
He threw it into those rapacious gullets.

Such as that dog is, who by barking craves,
And quiet grows soon as his food he gnaws,
For to devour it he but thinks and struggles,

Of Cerberus the demon, who so thunders
Over the souls that they would fain be deaf.

On one side and the other, with great howls,
Rolling weights forward by main force of chest.

They clashed together, and then at that point
Each one turned backward, rolling retrograde,
Crying, “Why keepest?” and, “Why squanderest thou?”

On either hand unto the opposite point,
Shouting their shameful metre evermore.

Down to the foot of the malign gray shores.

Do pain create, and for the pain an outlet.

Like others for our spoils shall we return;
But not that any one may them revest,
For ’tis not just to have what one casts off.

Here we shall drag them, and along the dismal
Forest our bodies shall suspended be,
Each to the thorn of his molested shade.”

And two behold! upon our left-hand side,
Naked and scratched, fleeing so furiously,
That of the forest, every fan they broke.

He who was in advance: “Now help, Death, help!”
And the other one, who seemed to lag too much,
Was shouting: “Lano, were not so alert

Those legs of thine at joustings of the Toppo!”
And then, perchance because his breath was failing,
He grouped himself together with a bush.

Behind them was the forest full of black
She-mastiffs, ravenous, and swift of foot
As greyhounds, who are issuing from the chain.

On him who had crouched down they set their teeth,
And him they lacerated piece by piece,
Thereafter bore away those aching members.

Supine upon the ground some folk were lying;
And some were sitting all drawn up together,
And others went about continually.

Those who were going round were far the more,
And those were less who lay down to their torment,
But had their tongues more loosed to lamentation.

O’er all the sand-waste, with a gradual fall,
Were raining down dilated flakes of fire,
As of the snow on Alp without a wind.

Thus scrutinized by such a family,
By some one I was recognized, who seized
My garment’s hem, and cried out, “What a marvel!”

And I, when he stretched forth his arm to me,
On his baked aspect fastened so mine eyes,
That the scorched countenance prevented not

His recognition by my intellect;
And bowing down my face unto his own,
I made reply, “Are you here, Ser Brunetto?”
It'll probably be alright. I doubt it's all fire and brimstone and eternal suffering. Since people may get that buy the majority don't deserve it. Actually, no one deserves eternal suffering as described in the bible. That would be fucked. Hell will probably be like here on earth just farther removed grin God.

Who cleaves the hills, and breaketh walls and weapons,
Behold him who infecteth all the world.”

Came up and thrust ashore its head and bust,

Wheels and descends, but I perceive it only
By wind upon my face and from below.

I heard already on the right the whirlpool
Making a horrible crashing under us;
Whence I thrust out my head with eyes cast downward.

Then was I still more fearful of the abyss;
Because I fires beheld, and heard laments,
Whereat I, trembling, all the closer cling.

Even thus did Geryon place us on the bottom,
Close to the bases of the rough-hewn rock,
And being disencumbered of our persons,

He sped away as arrow from the string.

There darted forth a serpent, which transfixed him
There where the neck is knotted to the shoulders.
