In His Image And In His Likeness

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What is the principle according to which the human body was created and especially the human face?

Answer: In the image and in the likeness of a spiritual object. If a person takes the two forces that exist in nature into his, the positive and the negative, the attribute of bestowal and the attribute of receiving, and starts combining them correctly on all the levels of the ego: the root level, level one, two, three, and four, the combination of these attributes will be expressed in an external form such as his body and his face.

The face is the place from where a person radiates the Light of Hochma that descend on His body. The Light descends from the free parts of his face unto the other parts. That’s first.

Second, let’s find out how these elements are formed on a simpler level: There is a sum of certain elementary particles that form much more complex elements and then bodies. Such small organs or bodies like the liver, the kidneys, the lungs, etc. gather into a physical body or certain other objects.

How is a change of growth, a change of nature in its evolution achieved? Only thanks to the mutual cooperation of two forces: bestowal and receiving. But this leads to endless variations and combinations.

Comment: All the openings for receiving information are in the head, and the openings for extracting information are below the navel.

Answer: There are reasons for that. The spiritual object is formed in an identical manner. All our body is actually formed in His image and in His likeness, which means according to the right combination between these two forces.
