Torah, Leviticus 7:21: And a person who touches anything unclean, whether uncleanness from a human or an unclean animal [carcass] or any unclean [carcass of an] abominable creature, and then eats of the flesh of a peace offering to the Lord, that soul shall be cut off from its people.
A corpse symbolizes an uncorrected egoistic desire. It died by itself, but it has not yet been corrected.
In other words, there is life and death. After the egoistic life of a desire comes the death of the ego and then its alteration to altruism. It moves like a wave: plus-minus, plus-minus. You plunge into minus (egoism), come to zero, and then you translate egoism to altruism. But a zero still does not mean anything. You can deal only with the spiritually alive.
“Touching the unclean” means entering into an inner contact with an egoistic desire, being with it in adaptation, in understanding, in a mutual state. That is, if you can say spiritually that “I came into contact with someone,” then you are in the same state as he is. And if he is a dead body, then you are at the same level.
It is written: “And a person who touches anything unclean… and then eats of the flesh of a peace offering to the Lord, that soul shall be cut off from its people.” You cannot bless, you cannot do such deeds.
This is about the laws of incompatibility or the laws of similarity because everything in the universe is built on the property of similarity.
