Remark: The fourth theory of nature’s governance: the Creator of the world has ceased His governance.
In the process of humanity’s development, many people abandoned the idea of polytheism. Baal HaSulam writes that then a new theory was put forward, according to which the Creator of the world is wise and sensible, but he stopped his guardianship, i.e., He created us and left.
My Comment: The fact is that many people are disappointed with their development, with the development of civilization, with the human approach to life, with society. They saw that no matter what we do as a result of our long developmental process, we still remain negative and worthless, we suffer, and harm ourselves.
Therefore, they involuntarily came to the conclusion that, probably, all this was once controlled by a wise force that wanted to create a person for some lofty goal, but because nothing came out of the person, as a result, the higher power left us, and we exist purely automatically.
That is, they agree that some kind of wise force created us, but it seems to them that this wise force cannot engage in such insignificant people who themselves cannot do anything to correct themselves. All the theories of nature’s governance, in principle, have arisen from practice.
