Unconventional Q, hopefully not inappriate:

"What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your lonlinest lonlinessand say, "This life which you love must be lived by you again and again, and innumerable times more, and every pain and every joy, and every thought, and every sigh must come again to youall in the dame sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turnedwith you in it, dust of dust." Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or, would you answer, "I have never heard anything more divine."?

Too deep for me right now, in my foggy state!! Don't think it's inappropriate at all. It's a real thought provoker.

Sounds like the situation that is examined when one ponders re-marriage.  Those that acquiese to the concept are believers in hope over experience.

Or when you contemplate another helping of that same Vindaloo what parked you on the porcelain throne last week.

I would do neither.  I asked my Preacher a question because I felt demons wouldn't leave me alone after my father passed.  I had anxiety attacks, couldn't breathe, felt like I was dying at age 28.  I felt haunted in my most vulnerable state.  His answer to me is my answer to your question.  I would say:  "Get thee behind me, Satan, in the name of Jesus Christ, I command you".  My eternity will not be my life re-lived.  It will be something better than any human can imagine UP there, NOT down there.

I'd look into a change in my meds! I am sorry I can't give a more serious answer, but life is too important for such seriousness.

Reference the speculative fiction short story 'Time Travel for Pedestrians' by Kris Neville in Harlan Ellison's anthology 'Again, Dangerous Visions'. Covers some interesting ideas on the subject. Warning: adult content.

You have to live everyday like ya don't get a "do-over"  Regrets are only bad if ya don't learn from them, some say.  But every regret I have ever had has led me to the place I am now..............so I guess I'm saying I'd do it all again in a heart beat,  baby.

Hell is repetition.  Like orphanedhawk said: the demon is our EGO-much harder to deal with than any vision

If I heard a demon say that to me I would immediately check myself into the nicest psych ward I could find and seek appropriate treatment and the cause of my delusion.  But of course, that's just me.
