Comment: In the The Last Generation, Baal HaSulam writes that there are three bases of disseminating Kabbalah, one of which is: “There is no existence to the world without it, all the more so in the days of the atom and the hydrogen bombs”
Answer: We try to conquer the strongest forces of nature; however, they exist outside of our grasp.
We try to do this in order to change our fate but we affect no changes for it exists in the very merging with the upper force, not in the power of atomic or hydrogen bombs. Therefore, I hope that all these “toys” will not get to be used.
On one hand, humanity always hangs on to the brink of balance. On the other hand, there is a higher governance, which, I hope, will not allow various hot-heads to press the red button.
Baal HaSulam, The Last Generation: “The only counsel to prevent this is by all the nations adopting the regime of perfect communism, meaning altruistic. Needless to say, today, after the discovery and use of atom bombs, and the discovery of hydrogen bombs, it is no longer doubtful that after one, two, or three wars, the entire human civilization will be totally ruined, leaving no relics.”
It is hard to scare us with this today. People are used to this idea and live with the understanding that tomorrow they may not be here.
Comment: Psychologists consider a person to be an irrational being, incapable of being affected by logical arguments. But here, Baal HaSulam uses an example of war as an argument for people.
Answer: That which is known to the psychologists is of little interest to us. Their knowledge has no effect on the world. We, however, the people who move toward the revelation of the Creator can do a lot and can tilt the world to a positive side.
Question: Does Baal HaSulam mention these wars as evidence or does this proof have a deeper meaning?
Answer: A person has the means to end his life on Earth. However, he does not take into account the effect of the upper governance, how its directives are manifested inside him. The notion that we can destroy ourselves is a fact. However, humanity is used to it. It does not realize what it is moving toward.
