The World Has Become Noah’s Ark

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In what way can each of us invest effort in the common Kli; what do we need to do?

Answer: Every one simply needs to think about what he would want to have happen to him, to the group, and to the entire world: men, women, children, the old, all the peoples, all of humanity. Today, we are all in the same boat, a real Noah’s Ark.

It is said about Noah’s Ark that all were stowed in it and nobody ate anyone else, rather all lived in peace. For this ark is the characteristic of Bina, which encompasses and holds everything within itself. And therefore they were saved from the deluge, from the great ego, that erupted outside the walls of the ark and appeared in all its terrible forms: volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis, blizzards, and burning fire.

The ark protected all who were found within it, for they wanted to save it. The more we protect the ark, the more the ark will protect us. For the ark is the characteristic of Bina. Entering the characteristic of Bina is like entering a womb, into an ark that will protect you from all bad and harmful external influences; nothing can harm you anymore.

This is what specifically needs to be explained to the world—that all the problems of humanity are derived from its raging ego. But if we all build an ark for ourselves and do not eat each other, instead, all of us will dwell together within it, in our small closed world; if we make an ark from our small closed world, then we will be saved. Otherwise, what happened to all those who remained outside of the walls of Noah’s Ark will happen to us, all of us will sink into the waters of the deluge.

  1. It remains fascinating to witness worlds collide.

    How often haven’t I heard Michael (even scream:), we need to built Noah’s Ark.

    Excerpt from Wealth Beyond Nations

    We certainly now appear to have moved into this third stage of civilization and its stagnation and decadence. Governance, society, and economic markets degenerate together. The question, then, becomes: do we desire to continue on the inevitable path to the fourth stage of collapse—for our economies and our entire societies to literally jump off the cliff? Or perhaps, do we desire to establish a new civilization imbued with both ‘natural rights’ as well as ‘natural responsibilities’—replete with a sustainable and interdependent economic system and a wiser, more inclusive form of governance—without necessarily needing to experience a complete and catastrophic collapse of the present system? Can we recognize the Titanic is sinking, and before she sinks completely, can humanity join together to build Noah’s ark? If so, to what ideal as a human race do we endeavor? How should we begin anew?


    Thank you for all the work you do.
