If you had to choose between such an afterlife and simple oblivion, which would seem more attractive?
Also, in Birgitte's case (at least) she gets to spend that eternal afterlife with someone she loves. Seems like good news to me!

I have to wonder, though, given that Lews Therin apparently did go to TAR before being reborn as Rand, was he just getting the hairy eyeball from all the other heroes? Was he as broken up as Rand on Dragonmount the whole time? That sounds awful.
