Answer: The concept of a “moment” is explained in the Book of Psalms: “For His wrath lasts but a moment; life results from His favor” (Psalms 30:6). For the Creator, a moment is the time it takes the creature to reach full unity with Him.
Question: When you talk about people connecting into a single whole, do you mean uniting in the imaginary world or in the true spiritual world?
Answer: I mean unity of desires, so it doesn’t matter.
Question: Are all pleasures in our world the result of the Light?
Answer: The Light is what a person enjoys. A person may have good desires or bad desires—Klipot (shells). This doesn’t mean much in relation to our world because all of us in this world are in a state of absolute Tuma’a (impurity). The difference is only whether a person elicits discomfort or pain in another person, or provides him with happiness and pleasure.
Question: If space doesn’t exist, then can a Kabbalist move in space instantaneously while he is in a physical body?

Question: I am very afraid of death. What is going to happen next?

Question: Is it possible to resolve external wars by peaceful means through internal correction?
Answer: Certainly! Without a doubt! That is the purpose of Kabbalah.
Question: What is the origin of the creature, and what is his correct perception?
Answer: The origin of the creature is the Light. His correct perception is in constructing a reflection of the Light within the creature.
Question: Are all of us found in the imagination of the Creator, like characters in the imagination of filmmakers?
Answer: We cannot say in what form we are found in the imagination of the Creator; this is an intangible and incomprehensible state.
