Kabbalists On Perception Of Reality, Part 6

Dr. Michael LaitmanDear Friends, please ask questions about these passages from the great Kabbalists. The commentaries in brackets are mine.

The Entire Reality Is Contained within Man

The Creator has made in our brain a kind of polished mirror that inverts everything seen there, so we will see it outside our brain, in front of our face. Yet, what we see outside us is not a real thing. Nonetheless, we should be so grateful to His Providence for having created that polished mirror in our brains, enabling us to see and perceive everything outside of us.

This is because by that, He has given us the power to perceive everything with clear knowledge and attainment, and measure everything from within and from without.
– Baal HaSulam, “Preface to the Book of Zohar,” Item 34

Even though we see everything as actually being in front of us, every reasonable person knows for certain that all that we see is only within our own brains. So are the souls: Although they see all the images in the Giver, they still have no doubt that all these are only in their own interior, and not at all in the Giver.
– Baal HaSulam, “Preface to the Book of Zohar,” Item 34
