Answer: The search for the Creator appears in us when we want to feel the purpose of our life: what am I living for? Why is all this given to me? What is the purpose of this world? Man develops for centuries and eventually reaches the state in which he asks himself about that.
Yet the world does not answer a person, but quite the opposite it shows him its aimlessness and its meaninglessness. So a person doesn’t know what to do until one reaches a state of putting an end to life by committing suicide, or by taking drugs and so on because there is no reason to live.
It is actually in this generation that the wisdom of Kabbalah is revealed, which explains the meaning of life to a person.
