Language is a means of connection between the elements of creation. For example, a computer has a programming language. The computer itself is a collection of all kinds of memory elements, but how they can be connected and in what order and sequence, what kind of connection between them will activate them is a language.
Different languages are required for different levels of development. When I was a student, we learned programming languages that are already forgotten today. Nobody knows them and nobody has heard of them. The languages of today are appropriate for modern problems and modern computers.
There are many different languages. One language is designed for playing chess on a computer, another language is designed for biological research, a third language for defining questions, etc. That is, the language describes the interaction of the system’s elements.
The system of creation is one, but it has four levels: first, second, third, and fourth. Each level has its own language even though everything that happens in one of them is similar to what happens on other levels but in different forms with different materials.
Even though the same laws operate on all of the levels, because they are clothed in the material of the still, vegetative, animate, and human matter, they look totally different. Understandably, the language that describes them is very different.
In the universe, for example, the inanimate elements of nature interact, they are countless in number, but qualitatively elementary. On the other hand, if we examine human society, compared to the stars and galaxies, it is quantitatively small, but on the highest level qualitatively.
So the descriptive language of their behavior and interaction differs. There are four languages that correctly describe the interaction in nature.
Although in the wisdom of Kabbalah, all four languages can be used on every level, beginning from the lowest and to the highest, we simply use them mixed together to describe all of the levels of nature. This is very interesting because we assume that it is impossible to do this with a computer program. They have completely different tasks, different approaches, and different program segments.
A Kabbalist who describes some kind of system uses the language of Kabbalah, moves to the language of the Tanakh, then to the language of religious law (Alahot), and finally to mythical language. He can use all of them absolutely freely according to what is convenient for him.
And he has the right to do this because the system of creation is built on a combinatorial basis. It is entirely comprehensive, integrated, connected, and complex. Therefore, it is possible to describe every part of the system through the language of the level of the “speaking,” let’s say, (which is the highest level, the level of Kabbalistic language), and to some degree the level of a simpler language, the language of the laws, and so on.
That is how we work. But when we investigate this system, we enter it, we begin to feel it. Then it is not important to us what language we are using. Each one of them enters into us and becomes a language of emotions, of sensations.
If a Kabbalist must convey something to others to maintain this system somehow, to do something with it, then a language is used, but within himself he has no need for a language. Or even if I read something, it is not important to me in which of the four languages I am reading because all of the information that is in me changes its form to a language of sensations.
In this manner, the four languages of the wisdom of Kabbalah describe the entire system, but besides them there exist another 70 languages because the body of every phenomenon, image, object, or spiritual creation is composed of 70 parts. They are all composed of seven Sefirot (Hesed, Gevurah, Tifferet, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut), and each one of them includes ten Sefirot. In total: 7 x 10 = 70. If we want to describe something that is typical in one of these subsystems, we need to use a specific language.
In Kabbalah this is almost never used, but we need to know that it is possible to make a unique translation for a particular language, an algorithm that will be understandable only for a specific small link in the general system of the common soul.
