If souls (or whatever) are going to keep showing up there on death, what could you do to make it more pleasant for them? Could 'ancestor worship' actually become a measuable and quantifiable pursuit where people create an environment for their relatives to exist in? Since all humans show up there on death now, how will the 'souls' react to such a cosmopolitan afterlife with psychos and philanthropists sharing a park bench?
Well, the obvious things is that there will be attempts made to mete out punishments based on more than just the crime of existance. The backlog will be insane, but given that these dead people get physical torment and still feel pain after all these years, they must regenerate, so they can probably be trained into assisting the work.
I see alot
of attempts to examine, quantify, and work out how you go from life to afterlife, and many efforts to create reincarnation.
In short, I actually suspect the final outcome will vaguely resemble Dante's Inferno, only with more massive, imposing courthouses, and alot of tourism. One things for sure, it'd get History and Philosophy majors out of our hair, as they can find their favorite individuals and listen to them talk.
