Obviously nothing in the Bible tells us if God likes us making films/books/fictions/toys/games etc.
However, I latched on to a wonder of an idea (via CS Lewis) that seemed to suggest, inspired by Plato, that all ideas and things have a Heavenly version. As a Protestant, I tried to research this Platonist idea via many means, but one attempt was an email to Justin Welby. I got his secetry instead, who said that God (though unseen by us) is not anything that was not conveyed to us via Jesus; that this fact " turns Platonism on its head." I am positive he is correct about all things through Jesus our Lord, yet it is hard to picture- while I am still trying to learn his sayings on morality, what was his personal tastes as a character? Could I have sat down with him to discuss my favourite movies, like ‘Aliens’, to find him smiling and nodding along, understanding my enjoyment of them?! I also looked elsewhere: nothing in the Bible, some support (and some refusal of the notion) by others…
The imagination means a lot to me. I enjoy many things. Personally, I’d love to believe that my interest in fictional monsters (not a sinful one- I don’t mimic their actions!- it’s got a lot to do with the philosophy of the ‘sublime’.) like the ‘cybermen’ in Dr Who…are echoes/shadows/reflections of something desirable in Heaven (just to clarify- I don’t mean that we’d go to Heaven to find out that fictional critters are ‘real’ beings, chasing everyone!)
It is perhaps a pipe-dream and you might find yourself laughing at it. Yet I DO get a sense of longing for the ineffible via such creations.
However, as there is nothing in the Bible to say “yes or no” to this…where to prove or disprove it? For, to do one or the other, is what I must do! CAN I do either, or is the honest truth that, “no body knows for sure if Plato/CS Lewis were correct.”
CS Lewis made his donkey character, in The Last Battle, find a heavenly version of grass in the ressurected Narnia. MIGHT there really be Heavenly grass?
