Boring Utopias

"In heaven all the interesting people are missing."
Nietzsche

I don't know if other people have had this feeling while reading about heavens and utopias- they are all utterly boring, without exception. They life they present is dull, boring, monotonous and without excitement. It may be eternal, or it may be economically ideal, but what the purpose if it seems to lack the very vigour and beat of life?

Aaah, I should have known it would be infidel friend who would share these sentiments. I sometimes think that way too. But maybe it is up to us to imagine heaven. If one does believe that God creates and sustains everything, then how can we imagine that he would be unable to give us Happiness of an infinite degree? I feel that everyone will get what they want, not what is the ghissa-pitta, conventional idea of Heaven. :)
