Heavenly mind / chair

Heavenly mind
Heavenly mind

Main concept

A useless object can become useful if some heart and soul is added.

In hell people have extremely long spoons and chopsticks. They are too long for people to use when they eat , so people die. Heaven has the same kind of spoons and chopsticks. However, people in heaven don't try to feed themselves with these. Instead they only use them to give food to friends, so they can live happily.
Here is a chair which you cannot sit on alone. It could either be heaven or hell. it's up to you.
