I have a theory why Steve Jobs died so young.
Heaven needs innovation. The whole concept isn’t working. The Man needs help big time.
And who better than Steven Jobs to shuffle things around?
Here’s my guess as to some of his first tasks at hand.
Many people question if there is a heaven, in much the same way nobody really thought Apple could make a comeback after almost dying in the mid 90′s.
Someone, i.e. Jobs, needs to let people know Heaven is real, and we all have something to look forward to. I’m not sure how Jobs is gonna do it. But he figured out how to put 80,000 songs in your pocket (iPod). I wouldn’t put it past him.
Expect Something Big very soon. A Moment that will make us think twice about our faith. A light in the sky or a sale at Whole Foods. Something truly Momentous.
The newer generations might take more kindly to the notion of heaven if there was a new prophet. In much the way the iPod made the Jukebox obsolete, wouldn’t a modern day messiah add vitality to the idea of death…and life?
Expect Someone Big very soon. Someone with a very special ability, ie to hit .454 in baseball when nobody has hit .400 since the 1940′s. Someone that sneaks up on us to get our attention and then delivers a very important message.
The whole “pearly gates, walk into the light, angels with wings” thing is lame. In much the way that Apple created the coolest ad campaign ever with Think Different, it’s safe to say we can expect a new look from Heaven.
I’m not sure what he’s thinking but the guy who figured out how to make computers beautiful surely will have plenty of resources to work with in the Infinite Space.
Expect a major shift very soon. I can see Jobs orchestrating Jay Z’s near-death experience inspiring him to create a whole new Religious Iconography.
Prayer is so 1421. There hasn’t been an update to “spiritual technology” in hundreds of years. It’s as if boring old Microsoft has a stranglehold on the lines of Communication. Enough already.
Steve Jobs was a big believer in meditation. Expect not just a surge in this ancient art, but some sort of gadget or app that taps a heretofore Forbidden Frequency, allowing Conversation with those we thought were long gone.
The prayer lines are flooded, people on earth are hurting, lonely, scared.
Jobs couldn’t have arrived in heave soon enough.
There’s never been a better time for Re-heaven-ation (sounds like Renovation).
Even if you didn’t care for the latest Apple gadget, you probably were touched by the life of Steven Jobs. And don’t be the least bit surprised if you are touched even more profoundly by his death.
