Once again the Startup Nation delivers the breakthrough, this time in the form of the human heart. Researchers from Tel Aviv University have demonstrated how to take human tissues and use them to print a 3D living, beating heart. Within a decade, they estimate, we’ll start saying goodbye to organ transplants altogether.
I remember the world’s first heart transplant that took place in 1967 in South Africa and made waves around the world. People were shocked and baffled by the idea that their heart could be replaced with someone else’s. And it brought up all sorts of questions such as whether a heart transplant changes a person’s feelings and personality traits.
That was in the middle of the 20th century, which just goes to show how clueless and primitive we are in our thinking, when it comes to understanding the difference between the body and the higher essence of the human being.
It’s hard for us to let go of the thought that our essence is somehow connected to our body. However, our technology is ushering us into a world where all of our organs can be printed, cloned and replaced and the medical world will be largely dominated by robots and artificial intelligence instead of human doctors.
This revolution in the medical world will help us see that we are more than what our bodies are. From that point, it will be easier for us to recognize that the true essence of the human does not reside in the body.
The wisdom of Kabbalah explains that the deeper essence of the human is a spiritual spark that exists in a reality beyond time and space, and our next phase of development is about finding it. Thus, realizing that it’s not in our body is a step forward for mankind.
When we wonder about our higher purpose, we should first realize that our technological progress can only extend our toolset and improve our lives on the physical level of existence.
Kabbalists throughout the centuries have continuously worked to develop the spiritual technology that we can harness to rise to a truly higher level of existence where we’re all connected above our bodies, and realize our unique spiritual potential. This is where we discover the purpose of our life and how it’s connected to the force that guides the whole of reality. If you will, Kabbalah can teach us how to operate the spiritual printer that can print the human soul.
