On the Possibility of Heaven

Given Their technology, the UETI could build, populate, and maintain a deep-space habitat called Heaven.


Heaven: a deep space habitat populated by immortal beings

Mortal: beings who will die

Immortal: beings that maintain a steam of consciousness for billions of years

Being: any type of human

God: the UETI


  • Build a deep space habitat with enough room to hold trillions of individuals.
  • Equip the habitat with billions of transporters, long-range replicators, and whole mind-body emulators.
  • Staff the habitat with existing immortals.
  • Using the long-range replicators, beam aboard a copy of mortals moments before the future predictors say they will die.
  • Transition mortals to life as an immortals in Heaven by putting them in a whole mind-body emulators while reconditioning the minds of the dead mortals.
  • Maintain the habitat by filtering all pathogens, including congenital defects, from mind-body emulators. This can be done before rehabilitating malevolent mortal humans into benevolent immortals.


  • A stable habitat that can last for billions of years in intergalactic space, away from stellar phenomenon.
  • Resources for rehabilitating the malevolent humans that are brought aboard.
  • A place for immortal beings to eventually become the UETI.

Why would the UETI do this?

God’s Mercy, because the UETI is fully human and therefore still capable of empathy.
