Quantum Physics And Kabbalah

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: Where is the connection between quantum physics and Kabbalah that you refer to so often?

Answer: As a result of multiple experiments, quantum physics had to include an observer into the research results to acknowledge the fact that everything that happens depends on the observer as well as his observation. It doesn’t happen autonomously, but rather depends on who is viewing it, how it is viewed, and whether or not anyone is viewing it at all.

The observer is an active and essential part of any process. We never see the world void of our own presence. The world exists only within the observer’s perception.

Kabbalah is familiar with this law and described it thousands years ago. It explains  that everything is revealed, researched, and described only in respect to the observer, and we cannot say that the world exists outside of him (see Baal HaSulam’s “Introduction to The Book of Zohar”).

Another law of the quantum world (the world of Light of our world): One particle can be in two places at the same time. It does not happen by it traveling from one place to another instantaneously, but rather by it being in two places simultaneously.

Kabbalah ascertains that a “place” does not exist; the object that we see exists only in the observer’s perception and he senses himself within the boundaries (restrictions) called time, space, and motion, which do not exist outside of us.

  1. René Guénon warned against the tendency of modern science to quantify everything, leading away from ultimate quality, which is the infinite essence of the world. Modern science aims to and succeeds in replacing traditional sciences and religion for most people because it takes over their role of explaining the world and giving a way of life that is in accordance with that explanation. In that respect quantum physics would be yet another step into replacing traditional sciences with modern science and yet another parody of traditional sciences, which in their turn try to conform themselves to modern science. Have you considered the adverse effects that quantum physics might have on our understanding of the world and human life?
