The following is an actual question given  on a University of Arizona chemistry mid-term and an actual answer turned in by a student.
The answer by this student was so  'profound' that the professor shared  it with colleagues via the Internet which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most  of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today.
Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.
With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.  Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.
This  gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So  which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then it must be true and thus I am sure that
Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over.
The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and  is therefore, extinct...leaving only Heaven  thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why last night
Teresa kept shouting 'Oh  my God.'

In conclusion the inferno of the Earth is for our psyche, not for our body. When we die our body disintegrates and becomes dust but our psyche lives on. It all depends on the weight of our psyche, if our psyche is very heavy it will descend deeper into the abyss.
There are thoughtful notes and links on this thread.

I don't have any kind of poetry or prose to offer for this thread. But, Dante has always been a fascinating subject for me. Always with the allegory and symbolism. 






Thanks for the notes and thoughts on this thread. It helped with my own homework on the subject.

Aren't you clever. All your poetic nonsense won't get you anywhere. I can write good copyright. You should see some of it over where I roam. I'll give you all my delights!

It's a cold place in this environment. 


Rigid with frozen treason. 


The acumen of the damned is cold business.
