The wisdom of Kabbalah allows us to discover what existed before the creation of our world up to the Big Bang to find out when the worlds were created. It allows us to see from the point we are now all the phases of the future development, “to the end of all the generations.”
The wisdom of Kabbalah tells us what modern physics cannot explain. Paleontologists’ excavations provide us with some information about the previous generations and about the evolutionary phases we have been through. But ordinary science cannot tell us anything about what was created before our world and what is beyond its limits, that is, what is not accessible to our corporeal senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.
Astrophysics studies the development of the universe starting from the Big Bang and the creation of space where all the galaxies, our solar system, and our planet appeared. We do have some information about this, but before the Big Bang there were not even concepts such as “place” and “time,” and therefore it cannot be perceived by our research. We cannot study what happened before the creation of place and time by ordinary methods.
Kabbalah can help us because it gives us new tools and sense organs and expands our senses and mind. Thus, we can explore a reality that is not perceived by our ordinary sensors.
Question: How can we study something that happened before the Big Bang, before the creation of our universe, if there was nothing then? Isn’t the Big Bang the starting point?
Answer: The Big Bang is the starting point of our corporeal world, which was created by a spark of upper energy that exploded. Astrophysics cannot explain how it happened. How could such great energy be concentrated in one tiny point in which the explosion occurred?
Physics now is nearing the point at which spiritual energy transformed into corporeal energy. From the spiritual world, it was microscopic energy. This spiritual energy went from the world of Ein Sof (Infinity) through five spiritual worlds: Adam Kadmon, Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya.
And on the boundary of the last world, when the world of Assiya weakens to a minimum, as if a tiny drop in the sea, this spiritual spark exploded and turned into corporeal energy from which the entire universe was created.
This is the point of the Big Bang that was the starting point of our world. Everything that preceded it applies only to the spiritual world, that is, the wisdom of Kabbalah.
