I said paradise, not heaven. In my theosophology (!) the term
derives from a Hebrew word relating to a garden. The same sources have
given us the word "heaven" although the original language uses the
plural, "the heavens" together (apocryphally) with a "7 heavens"
progressive mode - echoes of theosophical ideas there! (or vice versa?)

Even if you can't have one without the other, the necessity of
reincarnation does not follow. Try hell >> paradise >> next place.
