The Comprehensive Integrality

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: I still don’t understand what the “integrality” that we speak about all the time means.

Answer: Essentially, it’s about changing our approach, about a new “data set,” about a new perspective of the world. What is an “integral?” Let’s clarify this in geometric terms. Suppose there is a certain area that can be divided into small squares of a certain size. Then the area of each square is one square (1…²). In addition, we are also left with smaller parts that are not squares.

The Comprehensive Integrality_1
So how do we calculate the general area of the body (S)? We add all the squares to the area and then we have to calculate the area of the special parts (S-?). If we were speaking about weight, we would have to see what their center of mass is (He-?).

The Comprehensive Integrality_2
So we divide this area into even smaller squares and then add it up. The sum () is called an “integral” (). Thus we calculate from zero to infinity (), down to the smallest details.

In the same way we reach the lowest level of the human race by integral education, down to the last detail. Eventually each of us, every “square” is equal to all the others. This is how integral education relates to generality, wholeness, and complexity.

The education will not correct the ego. The ego will still remain as it is, and there is nothing we can do with it: It cannot be re-trained, re-educated to move from reception to bestowal. The integral education “cuts corners” a little, but it doesn’t correct humanity. By implementing it we only bring people closer to a state that allows us to bring them the Light, and the Light will do its job, which we call “reform.” The conclusion is that the circles that we build will actually change only after we pass the Light to people.
