By "we" Sigi generally means himself and those who agree with him ;)

For now we see through a glass darkly but then we will see Him face to face and we will be like Him.

I don't think eternal life is chronological infinity or the same thing three zillionth verse. That would be pretty depressing. Maybe something like St Augustine's eternal present? Like St Simeon I want to look into His face. That is enough.

I prefer this song about death

> Life has existed for a long long time and we are part of it. We are just this stuff that is living now, as stuff has lived for so long. The living goes on. We do not, if by 'we' is meant personality. But life certainly goes on and always will, until the sun blows up at least here.

Duckling I listen and for many a time I have been half in love and many a time much more
