Hellish Space

The visionary of "23 Minutes in Hell" located Hell in the fiery core of the earth, because the Bible suggests that Hell is subterranean. But I think of Hell as located in outer space. There are whole galaxy clusters of trillions and more of damned souls. Each soul is embedded in a spiky, permanent torture capsule and even though there may be a billions in a single clump, each damned soul perceives itself as totally alone. There is no communication possible, but the soul can hear the screams of its fellows, the horrendous sound of the tormenting energy, and feel the caustic, monstrous flames of a galactic core . There may be entire parallel universes filled with nothing but damned souls.
