Humans And Animals

Laitman_720Question: Sensory perception in animals is much more developed than in humans: sight, smell, hearing, and touch. Does this mean that they are more developed than humans?

Answer: In our world, animals are much more adapted to nature than people. However, man’s weakness in regard to nature, on the one hand, and his developed intelligence, on the other hand, enables him to adapt all of nature to himself. So this is, as they say, a double-edged sword.

Question: In spirituality, is the sensitivity of animals stronger?

Answer: There are no animals in spirituality. They remain on the animal level, as do those people who have not received the properties of bestowal.

Until we penetrate into the upper world, into the world of bestowal and love, we are considered beasts. After all, until then, we have nothing other than the five senses and a little more intelligence, which lowers us below the level of the animals.

Why Are Humans Considered The Crown Of Creation?

laitman_755_2Question: Specifically why are humans called the crown of everything that has been created?

Answer: Humans are called the crown of creation because the whole creation was created according to a structure that is called Adam – Man, and all parts of creation are components of this system.

When a person begins to comprehend creation, it appears within him as his constituent parts. A person begins to understand that only he was created and that all the rest of the still, vegetative, animate, and human are found within him.

That is the way every person feels who has achieved creation, even though according to our logic, it makes no sense for a person to feel that everything is within him. This is precisely what happens, because creation is a system of many connections, and within it, every person includes all of creation within himself.

Ascending Above This World

laitman_942Question from Facebook: During the last convention, I had a feeling of ascending above this world. Why can’t I feel this in ordinary days?

Answer: You cannot feel that because you don’t have the society that can raise you. When thousands of people gather and everyone is excited about the idea of ascending above this world, they actually raise our world to the next level, and whoever is incorporated with them in this effort rises too.

This is the reason that you ascended; it was thanks to others and not as a result of your own efforts. Come and study how to ascend by your own efforts and how to raise others.

New Life #840 – Israel’s Enemies In The Bible

New Life #840 – Israel’s Enemies In The Bible
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz

Summary

The goal of creation is to bring all of mankind to the revelation of the Creator. Abraham wanted to fulfill the goal of creation, and the people from the nations of the world who found this idea appealing gathered around him and became the nation of Israel.

All of humanity operates as one mechanism. When those who have to lead the world to connection don’t fulfill their role in this mechanism, it invokes hatred against them.
