The Difference Between Heaven and Hell

What is the difference between heaven and hell?

In both heaven and hell, there is a table overflowing with abundant, nourishing food.

And in both heaven and hell, no one has elbows, so no one is able to bend their arms to bring a hand up to their own mouths.

The difference between heaven and hell is that in hell, everyone is starving,¬†perpetually¬†taunted by the unobtainable bounty on the table…
while in heaven, each person feels deeply nourished by feeding their neighbors and being fed by them.
