still what would the best life look like?
Experiencing something original to the extent the quality of a good life is respected for all.

I'd like to think that I will some day interact with a tutor-type ai/AI companion. From this interaction, I expect to discover something mildly original within myself and something competitively comparable from the the ai companion. Questions about how and why things work will be never ending. A careful approach to questions about the afterlife will have to lead to answers that offer another version of a good life---one void of threats and disrespect of those who have passed away. For instance many individuals fill my mind when I think of the people I want to see in this Good Life, Rachel Corrie, Army Ranger John Needham, children assaulted and murdered in the sex industry, the persecuted from all walks of life, youths who commit suicide due to being bullied and more.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

would the Noahide laws be sufficient?

My nickname at the pie factory was Boy Scout because I was always prepared. My nickname was Bull at the chicken feed plant because I charged into everything and my nickname in Nam was Crash. The nickname your peers give you is a window into your soul. What nickname did your peers give you?

Make a difference.

Hmmm.

I think that may be a conceit.

I think that living the good life is being content with however your life has turned out. That doesn't mean you can't have goals. I have a goal of someday seeing the Grand Canyon. It's a completely attainable goal. I don't know if it will ever happen though, and I can still be living a good life even if it doesn't, as long as I don't stress over the fact that I haven't done it yet. I almost died five years ago in a car accident. Each year that I am still alive is a blessing and I'm thankful to God for it.

I felt that way once, when I smoked opium.
