The Torah, “Numbers,” 36:10 – 36:13: As the Lord had commanded Moses, so did Zelophehad’s daughters do. Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah married their cousins. They married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained with the tribe of their father’s family. These are the commandments and the ordinances that the Lord commanded the children of Israel through Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho.
The law that forbids blending is related to the time, place, and tribe. It conveys multilayered combination of all levels of nature: still, vegetative, animate, and human. All of them need to connect together correctly.
Mutual support existed between the tribes but there was no intrudion of one tribe to another. Same as one organ can’t invade another in the human body.
Twelve tribes is an integral scheme. The world is also divided into the same twelve tribes, twelve organs. We can add to it another eight billion people and all of them will fit into this scheme.
Question: Will the tribes be abolished when the world becomes unified?
Answer: I don’t think they will be abolished. Perfection is achieved only due the fact that there is separation and combination. When it becomes completely harmonious, the world will be completely corrected. A plus and a minus will remain in it, opposite properties, but they will complement and always highlight and distinguish each other.
In the Torah there is a very clearly description of all possible laws of commutation between parts of the common soul that is built through the process of ascending forty degrees of so-called forty year journey in the desert, when the degree of Bina, joint correct interaction, is reached, but so far only toward the property of bestowal.
It means that I don’t harm you and you don’t harm me. We restrict our egoism and learn to rise above it, to coexist without touching each other: yours is yours, and mine is mine. And the next degree is really correct connection of all the parts of the soul, when they collide by their inner egoistic desires that grow and create between them some kind of formations above egoism.
And then, before entering the land of Israel, they reach absolutely complete state of Bina and can start an ascent to the level of Hochma. This is a very high degree.
