Question: According to the accepted definition of science, the wisdom of Kabbalah is one means of describing and understanding the world around us. What do you want to achieve by promoting not the science, but just one perspective on the structure of the world?
Answer: Every corporeal science is one possible perspective of the structure of the world, while according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, all of nature and everything that was created stems from a desire to receive pleasure—no matter whether we express it by physical or psychological parameters. It turns out that by remaining within the framework of our science we are very limited.
Look what is happening with us. We don’t know where we came from, and we are not sure that we can predict what will happen the next day, not the next minute, or in a few years. What use is science if it doesn’t give people an understanding of the world and how to manage it?
The most important thing is to understand the formula of our development and what happens to us. We don’t even know how the engine that turns and moves us forward works. As Einstein said, we are just like kids playing with pebbles on the beach while the sea itself is unattainable. And so the claim that we can seemingly determine what science is, is like a kids’ game.
On the whole, science is based on human perception because there is a human being behind every instrument who feels and understands everything through his mind and heart. When we take it into account as variables in our measurements, we begin to see the world as a system that is constantly changing, and this system is dominated by us.
We can measure it, feel it, and work with it; we can insert different parameters into it and see what happens. This is already a systematic, cybernetic approach. Man cannot affect nature without changing your parameters because man doesn’t know how to adapt to it and how to see the result.
