Nowhere To Hide

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What do we need in order to explain to the world the cogwheel principle?

Answer: We all depend on each other one hundred percent. In different areas, it manifests in various degrees; however, any percentage except one hundred is a lie. Even if only one percent is visible, it means that the rest of the 99% are hidden inside.

One way or the other, our interdependence is absolute, even if it appears to the contrary. Wherever you look, we are linked with iron chains of mutual connection, and there is nowhere to run from it.

The more clearly it manifests, the louder humanity will cry. In truth, it means that you depend on your foes and rivals, on each and on all, and you don’t know what to do with it.

As in a family, a husband and wife discover hate between them and total dependence on each other. We are all inseparable; there is no place to go. Here is our small apartment, our children, our refrigerator, our assets. And on top of all this, we hate each other to death, and we even can’t die.

Such an unbearable predicament must be somehow softened, soothed. After all, this is what we call the birth of a new world, contractions before Messiah’s arrival.

We shouldn’t hope that, having realized what is happening, the world will know how to act. In the Writings of the Last Generation, Baal HaSulam writes that people will never understand it, and never will a foe agree with a foe. Hence, we see the importance of the circulation of Kabbalah and our unification as a model for all humanity.
