Zordak says that on planet Pfffft in the galaxy-with-no-name-yet, the sentient organisms there also theologize in their own way. They too have a concept of what roughly corresponds to what in some religions on our planet is called “purgatory”—a material realm in which souls are purified for the ‘next step up.’ (Certain nuances are lost in translation.) Z said that it might deepen our evolving philosophy to consider some of their ideas. Anyway, here’s their theory:  The whole of the material cosmos (as they see it) is a kind of purgatory wherein less conscious beings can gradually grope, making many mistakes, creating small heavens and hells for themselves and each other. There are some other prophets on other planets—yes, there are millions of ‘em—and many also have a vision that there’s an evolutionary process going on, and it is also a process in which all is being lured towards more inclusiveness. Zordak said that from his viewpoint this was part of what our prophet Yeshua ben Yusuf—sorry—Jesus— was getting at. Actually, there have been thousands of minor prophets before and since Jesus who never got much notice, but that’s the way it is in the politics of religion.

On the planet Pfffft they believe that everything is not just in the presence of God but are rather extensions of God-ing. If the individual’s psyche cannot align with blessing and glory, it can feel a bit hellish; but it’s not a punishment, just a bit of evolution. As an example, the young child takes life as it comes, poor or rich, but doesn’t imagine—cannot imagine—what all is involved in all the work done by the parents to care for the kid. Babies and little kids dosn’t have the maturity, the mental equipment, to understand or appreciate. This is true on many planets, as well as here. But, if, in the next few thousand years (big if) we can move forward rather than extinct-ing (verb) ourselves, Zordak says that we may get a better glimpse—but still very far from complete—of the Great What It’s All About.
