ehhhhhhh its like heaven AND hell. like heaven, u live there with eternal life and ur not punished....well, if u were GOOD in life before the coming of christ. like hell, it is a part of hell and u cant get upgraded to heaven (before christ neway) cuz its for ppl who never experienced christianity (like aborted babies and babies who died before babtism). many protestants label Catholics as being ppl who damn nethin and neone to an eternity in hell if they do not live to christian expectations, but the Catholics believe that God will show mercy on babies and other unbabtized children by sending them to limbo.

basically, it doesnt have the beautification like heaven, but it has the eternal bliss part.
ive lived a mixed life, so chances are, ill be im limbo.

In Dante's Inferno, Limbo is the first circle of hell. Limbo is the home of the dead pagans that were around before Jesus Christ and Christianity. The Pagans are kept here, unharmed, where they live for eternity. They are not allowed into heaven because they do not know God's love. Unbabtized and aborted babies are also sent here when they die.
Although it is in hell, no one is punished in Limbo.

It is a place of shared consciousness by all dreamers or a shared dream state.
Robert Fischer was sent to Limbo when he died on level 3 of dream.

In games, primarily in roleplaying, limbo refers to the state a character is in while awaiting an action of another character.
The first character can not act without knowing the second his action. When the second player is gone for a long time, it forces the first player to wait, leaving his character in "limbo", stuck in a timeless void.

the place where a man goes in the weeks following unprotected sex with a woman to be judged whether or not he's been condemned to a life of parenthood.
Limbo is not a fun place to be.
