Question: In the article “The Last Generation,” Baal HaSulam writes: “The adoption of the law of altruism is based on the love of one’s neighbor in the literal sense.” What does he mean by “in the literal sense”?
Answer: It means that everything I think about, dream about, and do, all that arises in thought and desire, comes only from the aspiration to satisfy the neighbor with absolute fulfillment and to do it for the sake of bringing contentment to the Creator.
Question: In the corporeal world, does this also take place literally?
Answer: I cannot say how it will be realized physically because it depends on how much our world will gradually lose the physical form that we are now experiencing, and will evaporate and turn into purely spiritual matter.
This depends on our sensations. The world will become more spiritual in accordance with our spiritual correction, and we will begin to move from physical sensation to the virtual one.
