Comment: The American President Barack Obama said in a speech before British youth that everything is changing so fast in the world that one is tempted to form his own consciousness, like a member of a tribe who feels confident and secure in the face of many changes. But he believes that the youth should resist this temptation.
The President referred to immigrants from Africa, the Middle East, Northern Ireland, and Burma, which he believes should be received with empathy. The President emphasized that he doesn’t accept people who wish to feel superior by dividing the world into them and us. It turns out that Obama is calling for unity.
Answer: That’s true but only under the domination of the US. Since how else is it possible? Someone has to manage the parade! From Obama’s perspective ,it is the US of course.
The commanders of the parade will be those who lead and manage the settlement in the US, which are not those who founded America. The founding fathers were British, Irish, and Germans who laid the proper foundations of the country, and Obama wants to change all that.
There is something to hide, after all, according to his view, the US should become an Islamic state. He came in order to change it, so at least at the end of his presidency, the gates of the country would be wide open for active extremist Arab population to settle there.
Question: If we speak about the upper force that guides the hearts of ministers and kings, what is the goal of the upper force in leading Obama in this specific manner?
Answer: The goal of the upper force is to show us that we will not be able to survive by relying on a philosophy of the world, whether religious, Anglo-Saxon, Asian, Afro-American, or Muslim. We will succeed only if we begin to unite above all the philosophies, above everything that divides us.
Thus, in America, the Muslim population is being injected, in order to create a great controversy within the American society, and then from the inability to continue this development, it will have to come to the conclusion that people have no other choice but to join.
Question: You often say that nothing will succeed unless people reach a dead end. Can we try to come out of the situation we are in by using our brains?
Answer: Of course not. See what happens in humanity! Can it attain anything by using the human brain?
There is only one way out of the impasse, and if that doesn’t help, a great explosion will follow, like the detonation of nuclear weapons, which is certainly possible. Then no one will be able to stop it, starting a chain reaction.
Fear restrains us up to a certain point, but then the mind ceases to operate and common sense disappears. Those who will survive will undergo great sufferings and as a result will understand that they have rebuild humanity according to a different principle, above our nature using our nature only as a springboard. This is where it will all end.
I hope that we will be strong enough to listen to what Kabbalists say. We will not grow wise by ourselves since we don’t have the brains it takes in our current condition. We should listen to Kabbalists who have attained the plan of creation to its end. They have already undergone it personally and so they advise us not to make mistakes but to follow their footsteps carefully, gradually changing our nature in the likeness of the Creator and attain the upper world here, in this world, in this life.
From KabTV’s “News with Michael Laitman” 4/24/16
The value of any wisdom in the world is according to the purpose that it yields. This is the goal to which all the scrutinies aim. Therefore, a wisdom without some purpose is inconceivable except for infants playing games, since to pass the time they come and this is their purpose, according to their value. For this reason, a wisdom is not evaluated by keenness and proficiency, but according to the merit of the purpose that it yields.
You therefore find that any external wisdom is only for the purpose of corporeality, which is sure to be gone today or tomorrow. In that case, it is sufficient for the subject to be as the predicate.
And although the wisdom has many advantages over these subjects, for wherever it is, it is nonetheless a spiritual element, but we have already said that it is evaluated by the purpose, which is its persistence for eternity. And if the purpose is transitory and fleeting, it is lost along with it.
(Baal HaSulam, “The Wisdom of Israel Compared to the External Wisdoms”)
Naturally, our universe and its laws, which seem to us unshakeable, has its beginning and its end. There is a beginning, middle, climax, and then decline, reduction, and extinction in the development of any dynamic system.
Therefore, today we see that the laws we study and consider to be absolute exist only in the framework of our senses and only with regard to us. If our senses were different, we could attain totally different laws and connections.
Question: Does this means that you have to change internally in order to become a physicist? I study and explore how the world around me changes and create the necessary instruments.
Answer: On the whole, when I study something in any field I can freeze a certain parameter and keep studying with a fixed parameter.
It is the same here when we are subconsciously frozen in our egoistic senses and use them to explore the world. Therefore, it seems to us that there is nothing but the world that we see, but we forget that we perceive everything through our senses that are initially fixed by nature.
If we could change them, a totally different science would emerge based on our new senses. This variable dramatically changes all the laws as they turn from absolute laws to relative laws. It turns out that on every level and in every internal change a totally different science is created, a different state, a different world. This is what a person attains.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, when a person begins to change 125 fixed types of changes appear in him and accordingly 125 worlds, 125 levels or depths of attainment, which means 125 types of science.
But when you attain the uppermost level all your previous attainments merge into one single whole that is called the world of Ein Sof (Infinity). We cannot understand that yet, because we probably undergo a special transition there. This transition is still unattainable for us.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 2/28/16
Answer: No, one is not indifferent. In fact, our world is very important. Because of it we rise to the upper world, beget our soul, begin to experience and sense everything, and grow there.
The more a person advances in spirituality, the more he needs our world, values it, and can use it in the correct way. Therefore, we do not neglect our current state in any way.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 2/21/16
In the News (ibtimes.com.au): “Using single particles of light, scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia, have shown that a photon can pass through a wormhole to interact with its older self. The quantum experiment was aimed at simulation of time travel by quantum particles.
“The Collective Evolution, citing the Nature Communications, which published the findings of the quantum experiment, says the difficulty in time travel lies in the existence of ‘closed timelike curves’ (CTCs). A CTC refers to the line of a material particle in spacetime that is closed, enabling it to return to its starting point. The report says CTCs are used to simulate powerful gravitational fields of the kind produced by a spinning black hole. Based on Albert Einstein’s relativity theory, CTCs can theoretically warp or distort existence to bend space-time back on itself, enabling time travel.”
My Comment: If we assume that everything flows in time, the journey along the time axis is not possible. Whereas according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, everything exists within a single picture of the world. Past, present, and future can generate the existence of the world from the one and only state. It follows that time doesn’t exist but is only one parameter of subjective existence in our perception of reality.
New Life 556 – Israel Mourns For Its Children
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
During war people become closer to each other: brothers in times of trouble. This happens naturally in all peoples. Furthermore, our people are unique that at their root is, “And you shall love your friend as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). This is engraved in us.
Our life of reciprocity continued for many generations until the destruction of the Temple that was derived resulting from unfounded hatred. The impression of connection had been burned into us. A Jewish child was never found thrown into the streets, as among other peoples. There has always been mutual responsibility.
On Memorial Day, there is a general awakening of a sense of connection, mutual responsibility, and oneness among the people. The root of the connection between us, which is very strong and powerful, is discovered. It shines from within and controls us. The power that once connected us as one person with one heart is revealed and awakens a special and noble vitality among us.
It comes to teach us how we should live all the time, not only on Memorial Day. We must live with mutual responsibility.
What must be memorialized on Memorial Day? We must take an account of why the martyrs fell, and what we must do. They sacrificed their lives for us. Our obligation is to make a correction to bring peace to the world. They provided us with an opportunity to build another society here, connected with love and mutual responsibility. If we connect with each other with love, we feel them, those who have fallen, they are among us—this is just hidden from us. They yearn for us to connect as one system, as one person with one heart.
On Memorial Day it is worth remembering what we must do so that bereavement will cease.
