My Response: Why? After all, knowing the future doesn’t make it easier to live it. If they were to tell us now that in a particular amount of time these or those events would happen, all of our thoughts would be tied to that date.
Question: What motivates people to decipher the writings of Nostradamus?
Answer: On one hand, a person wants to know the future on a global scale; that is natural. But regarding a person’s own future, I think it is worthwhile not knowing. If the future is hidden from a person, it means that it must be hidden. Not even the wisdom of Kabbalah reveals this. It brings a person to a state where the boundary between life and death is erased.
Basically, what is death? It is the animal component of human consciousness. When this part disappears, the mind continues to exist anyway.
Comment: All of the sources point toward the future, for instance, “And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid….” (Isaiah 11:6), or “It will be on that day…and the Creator extends His hand again and again.”
My Response: This is not speaking about a specific day, but about a time toward which we are heading today, tomorrow, or in another hundred to two hundred years.
