Remark: Throughout history and to this day, there are several thousand belief systems in the world.
If we look at reality from the perspective of Kabbalah, on one hand, there is a constant development of human society and beliefs as a cultural phenomenon. On the other hand, there is internal change in humanity, i.e., our desires are changing, and as a result of this, our beliefs change from pagan to monotheism, etc.
What is the difference between Kabbalah and various beliefs from the perspective of internal development? For example, there is a very important rule in Kabbalah that all the processes occurring in the spiritual worlds must manifest in the material world at least once.
My Comment: The spiritual worlds are the root of everything that occurs, and our world is a consequence or a branch of that root. Therefore, everything that exists in the upper worlds must somehow manifest itself in our world, at least once, in some particular form.
For instance, a very powerful force or some particular action in the upper world might manifest in our world as a barely noticeable occurrence or force.
The fact is that the upper root must always come in contact with our world and create its branch in it. We, proceeding from that branch, can learn something about the root itself.
