[ shrugs ] I think he was joking, but even so, one's gods are who or what one perceives them to be. If he seriously believes in the "kingdom of steel", who are we to disabuse him?

In "Elsewhen" by Robert Heinlein and Operation: Chaos by Poul Anderson, there's a marvelous idea that you get the afterlife you beilieve you will get. You believe in Christian Heaven, and believe you earned or deserve it, you go there. You believe in Christian Hell and believe you deserve it, you go there. You believe in Valhalla, you go there, and so forth.

Is that true? I've no idea: it's attractive on it's face, as it would be a sign that for once the Universe works as it's been advertised it would. Personally, I suspect that once this body dies, "I" will be gone, pffft!, like a blown-out candle...but nobody has any way of knowing.

Oh of course...though it's simply because that whole quote reminds me of a conglomeration of countless power metal songs (and yes, I'm a fan of power metal!). That is a great idea, but...damn. The wording!
Though, what struck me even more was the fact that he was walking on train tracks with his music on full-blast! Also, the way everything was worded! Who knew?
