My Thoughts On Twitter, 7/19/17


#Kabbalah says that time doesn’t flow backward & the past can be fixed, but all is known in advance and we’re merely executing the program

#Fake: Generative neural networks allow for the creation of clips with any plots and participants, indistinguishable from reality.

#Kabbalah allows us to escape the “matrix” of our existence and attain eternity. The method is open to all, and free!

#Science: Reality is an illusion appearing only if someone perceives it. Kabbalah: We’re in a field of light, and we draw our own world.

The Main Goal Of The Last Generation

 Comment: The short notes written by Baal HaSulam about the last generation raise a lot of questions: What is the last generation, how can it be achieved, what steps should we take on the way to it, and so on?

Answer: It is true. After all, we have already reached this state, and today we see its formation. Therefore, it is very interesting for us to understand Baal HaSulam as deeply as possible, although it is quite difficult to open his short notes and create general, fundamental, and serious impressions about the generation we are entering.

This is not Generation X, Z, or Y but something different that cannot be defined by different Pokemon or things like that. It is absolutely different in terms of a person’s mind, his way of thinking, and his vision of the world. A person will see everything from within himself with different eyes.

Baal HaSulam looks forward not linearly, like historians or philosophers, but through the upper spheres, claiming that the revelation of the Creator will become the main goal of the new society. This is exactly what people will be doing because machines will do the rest of the work. This already is starting to manifest today.

Change Yourselves And The World Will Change

laitman_219_01Question: How does reading The Book of Zohar change the reality of the reader?

Answer: We feel a certain volume, me and my world, which is basically the reflection of my internal spiritual state. If we change this state, we will accordingly begin to change our feeling toward ourselves and the world.

This is very convenient because you don’t need to change anything or to be convinced with regard to anything. You are not dependent on anyone! Change yourselves and the world around you will begin to change.

The Two Forces Of Creation

Laitman_630_1Question: If we take any letter from the Hebrew alphabet, are its components a point and two lines? Are there no other forms?

Answer: A point and horizontal and vertical lines create a wide variety of combinations between the two forces that create everything that we can see, feel, grasp, and sense, everything that exists, not only in our world, but in all the worlds.

Question: Did the First Man (Adam HaRishon) feel the horizontal force as the power of bestowal and the vertical force as the power of reception, meaning, did he feel these two forces within himself?

Answer: Certainly, and therefore he discovered them. Nothing exists in the world except for these two forces. Plus and minus, electron and positron, and everything else, these are derived from the same two forces.

It Is Good To Envy

laitman_629_3Question: Is it good or bad if I have no questions at all during the study, but I do envy the friends who always ask you questions?

Answer: It is good to envy, but it should be good envy, which means wanting to be like them and not that they would stop asking questions.

Read The Book Of Zohar Again And Again

laitman_527_07Question: Is it necessary to read The Book of Zohar again and again? Every time I read it I feel that I am delving into a new stratum of sensations.

Answer: Yes. I read The Book of Zohar from beginning to end dozens of times, including when I was working on adapting the text for, The Zohar for the People. Every time we study The Book of Zohar, the text is felt in a completely different manner.

What Does The Future Hold?

Laitman_512_02Question from Facebook: What you say is scary. There are those who say that pessimistic predictions invoke pessimistic thoughts in people. Is this how we shape our reality?

Answer: I am not trying to scare anyone. I am talking about what we should expect if we don’t actively participate in our evolutionary process that develops under the influence of the ego, and therefore, we have to do something.

We are leading ourselves to doom and destruction, from bad situations to even worse situations. Everyone can see what is happening in the world. I am not a prophet, I am simply pointing out the current situation because I have a remedy for the harmful actions that lead to harmful outcomes. Take this remedy from me and everyone will be better off.

But if we close our eyes and wait for what may come, we will reach a state in which the earth will no bear us anymore and society will annihilate itself.

Question: Wouldn’t people understand what is going on if you didn’t tell us what the future holds and what we should do? Must you tell people what is going to happen?

Answer: When I was a kid and went to school my parents told me: “You should be a good student, don’t be lazy. If you study well, you will be a great man, everyone will respect you, you will make money and will be able to provide for your family. But if you don’t, things will be bad.”

If we don’t speak, nothing will affect people. This is the reason that I have to explain the situation.

Please forgive that if what I say may be a burden and that perhaps I am not saying it in a very polite and pleasant manner, but believe me that I am speaking out of my love for you. I want things to be good for you.
