I see the future of heaven as blending the natural and artificial according to Divine blueprint. Gone will be the coarse brutality of primitive eons. Gone the sophisticated brutality of technological society. Present will be the glories of the primitive, the great forests, the pure streams, the stillness of an Arctic night, the sonorous cadence of crickets on a summer evening, the beauty of sunsets over the prairie. Present will be structures more beautiful and functional than medieval cathedrals or modern towers. Heaven is depicted biblically as the city of God, with verdant, healing trees lining streets of transparent beauty.
