Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 7:05 – 7:06: But so shall you do to them: You shall demolish their altars and smash their monuments, and cut down their asherim trees, and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people to the Lord, your God: the Lord your God has chosen you to be His treasured people, out of all the peoples upon the face of the earth.
Everything that relates to the intention for myself and is a ritual of egoism must be destroyed. Therefore to burn, to smash, etc., refers to four types of killing egoism that we have to pursue until it disappears.
We are talking not about the desire itself, but about the intention on it. The desire remains in its original form. Only the intention for myself is destroyed and replaced with intention for others and for the Creator.
An altar is what I do for egoistic fulfillment. However I need to get rid of this action, this quality, and this method of filling egoism. And how can I move away from egoism? Only by crushing the method of filling it. This is demolition of the altar. It can’t be transformed, it can only be destroyed, meaning to scatter stones, break the hearth, and start from scratch.

Answer: This is the natural way of advancement. In our time, technology, automation, and robotics are taking the place of human labor. While in the past machines performed only mechanical actions, now they can take on tasks that match human logic and provide technological guidance. It is possible to see ships, airplanes, and missiles run automatically. Soon cars will travel on the highways without drivers. This doesn’t require special understanding or technology, but only sensors, guidance, and coordination. The person will be totally freed for the necessary spiritual work.
Question: What will happen if artificial intelligence becomes higher than human intelligence? They say that this will happen in the next ten years.
Answer: This will indeed be higher; already a computer calculates faster than a person. But we are not talking about that, but about spiritual attainment. The computer can never replace people in spiritual work. Everything else is corporeal and the normal functioning of life that can be easily programmed and connected to a machine.
From the Kabbalah Lesson in Russian 4/10/16
Question: Does the spiritual system include in itself all people’s desires that were ever realized or will be realized? Does it mean that every desire that appears in me comes from this spiritual system that defines what I want at the moment? Does it control our entire life?
Answer: The spiritual system controls our entire life 100 percent.
Question: Is there a spiritual DNA in every person?
Answer: Of course, otherwise there wouldn’t be material DNA. Spiritual DNA connects me with the spiritual system.
Question: Does it drive us as if by remote control?
Answer: No, it isn’t far away, we exist right within this system. It isn’t in some other place, but between us and inside us, connecting us with each other. There are no concepts of time, movement, space, or distance in spirituality.
Question: Is it possible to read spiritual DNA the way geneticists decode material genomes? What information is recorded there?
Answer: The entire path that I need to go through from this moment to my final correction is recorded there. Final correction is such a state where everybody is connected together above egoism into one desire that is called a man, Adam.
Our spiritual DNAs are in one system and influence each other. Therefore, we in this world enter various relationships that, unknowingly to us, the spiritual DNA dictates.
In the corrected system all desires are connected so that each one completes all others. We are talking about desires, not about bodies. The body will die sooner or later, and so what? And our desires connect into one system that is called Adam.
Question: And does a desire of a person die?
Answer: No. Desire is a force and a force doesn’t die. It continues to reincarnate in different bodies.
Question: Which one is more important and in control, spiritual or material DNA?
Answer: Spiritual DNA controls everything, including material DNA.

New Life #744 – Our Spiritual DNA
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz
The cradle of ancient civilization originated in ancient Babylon. From there humanity scattered all over the Earth and people were influenced by the places in which they settled. In those times, religion connected people from different lands. But ultimately most people left ancient Babylon so all included everyone.
All of us contain additional information beyond the physical DNA. We call this spiritual DNA or a Reshimo (reminiscence). This spiritual DNA is the root of the soul and is part of the spiritual system called Adam HaRishon (the First Man). The spiritual DNA, the Reshimo, is the data within a person’s desire that determines how this desire will develop. For example, the spiritual information that is said to be realized in a child is what causes his parents to mate and give birth to him.
The spiritual system determines what will happen to every individual desire at every moment on the way to the completion of correction of the system. It manages us through the spiritual DNA that is implanted in us. The entire way through which a person must pass until the completion of correction, the end of correction, is recorded in the spiritual DNA. This is the state in which all desires are connected and all of them complement each other.
