A Complicated Question

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How must one answer the question about why is it necessary to love your friend as yourself?

Answer: It is because the world is integral and the mutual integral connection between everyone in human language is called “love,” mutual love for each other, like cells in one body. This is called, “And you shall love your friend as yourself.” This means that there must be such a connection between people as there is between all the other parts of creation.

In nature everything is in the right connection and union between them, except for humans. People violate this unity and distorts the still, vegetative, and animate nature. As soon as people begin to correct themselves, nature will automatically begin to be changed.

Nature will begin to rise because all parts of creation are included in each other, but in particular on that level called Adam (human). So “love your friend” is implementing the essential law of creation, the connection between all of its parts.
