Dante's Inferno

Dante's The Divine Comedy has been on the must-read lists for several hundred years now, though I can't seem to get past the first 30 pages. It reminds me of a Tarkovsky film, without the reward. You fall asleep several times during the movie, but each time you are awoken to find rewards with the story, visuals and emotion (i.e. this is if you were watching Stalker and NOT reading The Divine Comedy). I discovered this web-page which ranks you amongst the 9 levels of hell from the book, based on a questionnaire. Apparently I reside in the 6th Level of Hell. This has the equivalency of pulling out the death card from the Tarot, noticing that my life line is short, having been sprinkled with holy water, killed a chicken to cure indigestion or belief in an energy field created by all living things, that surrounds and penetrates living beings and binds the universe. Please take it with a grain of said, but it is a mild distraction.

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Sixth Level of Hell - The City of Dis!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful)Very High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Very High
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Extreme
Level 7 (Violent)High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Low
