Infinity Is Just A Moment

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe Zohar, Chapter "VaYetze (And Jacob Went Out) – Part 1," Item 129: “And they seemed to him but a few days because of his love for her.” The entire seven years were to him as the upper seven years from Bina, who are ones, in one unification, and are not separated. They are all one, since they connect to one another for the love that he loved her, since she was to him like the upper unification in Bina.

How do we define infinity? Is it when time lasts infinitely or when there is no time and it equals zero? How can it be that when I love her, I spend seven years working for her, and in my perception these years fly by? Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t this time last infinitely long because it will take seven years before we will be able to be together?

In reality, infinity is when time reduces to zero. In our world, we believe that infinity is something infinitely distant because we imagine that the end (death) is pushed beyond infinity. We perceive infinity in this way because our perception is shaped from lack rather than fulfillment.

But in spirituality, where all our actions are dictated by bestowal, it is the other way around. Infinity is when everything is in one place as if compressed into zero. Everything exists at the same moment, "at the same time, in the same place, in the same woman."
