Family And Marriage, Part 1

Laitman_115A Birth of Something New From Two Opposites

Question: According to Kabbalah, marriage is not artificially created by man. It developed based on our natural properties. Why does the combination of two opposites give rise to something else, something new?

Answer: We see that the more developed the elements of nature, the more difficult it is for them to fit together. But when combined, they give rise to more distinct, developed, and unique properties.

Therefore, if we talk about the nature of chemical elements, it is one thing, biological elements, quite another, plants, already the third level, and if we talk about the animal world, then it is completely different because we also partially relate to the animal level.

Remark: They say that at the primitive level, elements are not separated. There are even some animals in which male and female parts coexist in the same body.

My Comment: Moreover, there are some animals that easily change their gender depending on what is needed for procreation. So all this is very smooth, flowing, and changing.

However, the higher the object of nature, the more difficult it is for it to proceed. Still, among animals we do not find any special combination of spirit, morality, and habits. Only in humans.

In the ancient, primitive, and in all kinds of protective natural communities, there was no particular separation between individuals. Until recently, there was no problem creating a couple between a man and a woman from the same village because everyone knew each other, they understood who they were, they had the same lifestyle and everything else. Everything was similar, even people’s characters were very similar.

But starting from the 19th century, a very serious distinction appeared among people depending on their states and other reasons. Thus, the problem arose of how males and females would mate.
