Answer: The wisdom of Kabbalah explores and teaches everything that stems from the root of creation. The root of creation is the four phases of the spreading of the Direct Light, which means the first ten Sefirot. When the Light began to bestow a point inside it, the first phase appeared and then the second phase, the third, and the fourth, then there was a restriction and everything continued to develop.
The Light that spreads affects the desire that appeared in it, the desire to receive, to enjoy, to be filled, and the desire began to change accordingly.
Since on one hand, the Light carries the filling , and on the other hand, the attribute of bestowal, which is its essence and conveys them to the desire, two reactions occur in the desire. The first is that the created being enjoys the filling of the Light because it is opposite from the Creator so that it can receive pleasure from Him. The second is that the desire gradually resembles the Light and perceives its character and attributes, which diminishes the desire to enjoy in it.
All the next levels of the development of the created being stem from the emergence of these two opposite attributes in matter, in the desire to enjoy. The created being develops through five worlds by being divided into an external part called “the world” and an internal part called “soul.” It thus develops until the lowest point in its spiritual evolution.
Then there is a transition to the level of our world and the spreading of its matter, which is a mark of the spiritual world. And the matter of our world is a matching replica between matter and the spiritual forces.
Therefore, whatever happens in the spiritual world in the coordination between the forces, happens in our world in the coordination between the different parts of different matter. This leads to a very interesting phenomenon: on the edge of some galaxy, the tiny quite unimpressive globe appeared. And despite what we know about the universe and that the Earth is somewhere on the side, it is actually at the center of the universe from the perspective of the impact of the upper forces in our world.
Of course we don’t feel that because we don’t have the scientific instruments that enable us to perceive it, but Kabbalists tell us about this.
Then the oceans, the seas, the continents, islands, and huge areas of plants and animals, the underwater world, and eventually man, who historically settled all over the earth and now covers the whole globe, appeared on the surface of the Earth.
The existence of the continents, oceans, natural areas, four races of mankind, numerous nations, different ethnic groups, and everything else stem from the upper spiritual root.
The coordination of the spiritual forces in the spiritual world is revealed in our world in the form of a corporeal seal, including the earth and everything on it, including us. If we take our small system, which includes the sun, the moon, and the different planets, the Earth and everything on it, the wisdom of Kabbalah describes everything in a very detailed way. It even tells us about hidden places in the universe, which we have only recently discovered, and sometimes about things that one can only guess that they exist and which we will probably discover in the future.
Generally speaking, geography, as well as astronomy, is fully described in the wisdom of Kabbalah. You can also find the roots of geology, and anthropology in Kabbalah books because there is nothing new under the sun and everything spreads from the upper root to the lower branches, to its outcome.
Because there is only the coordination between forces in the upper root, it creates the imprint of these forces and the connection between them in the matter of our world, and this is actually the reason that we can describe the upper spiritual forces through the objects in our world and by the interaction between them.
