Question: Is it right to say that mutual guarantee is a basic form of communication?
Answer: Mutual guarantee is the ultimate form of proper communication when we achieve a one-for-all and all-for-one relationship.
Comment: But you said that the final form is love.
My Response: This is when you can call it love. After all, to be connected to each other in such a way as to feel what the other person lacks and provide it for him is love.
Comment: In one of your books you wrote that the mutual guarantee frees everyone from any worries.
My Response: Mutual guarantee is necessary in order to take care of others. Everyone needs to be sure that they are being taken care of by others. Otherwise, they will have to break away from caring for others and think about themselves.
Therefore, society should be built in such a way that everyone thinks about each other. This is the reverse form of pure egoism.
Question: But still, a person must take care of himself to a necessary extent, right?
Answer: No. Why should he? He is in a society that thinks about each and everyone. And he also takes care of each and everyone, and in no way of himself.
He makes what is called a restriction (Tzimtzum) on himself: let the others think of me and I will think of others. In this state, we are completely connected to each other, included in each other, and achieve an absolutely integral state.
Question: Do you mean to say that, just as a few million years ago, nature combined cells into a complex organism, so it will force us into such an ideal state? It’s hard to imagine what you’re talking about right now. It’s not even a utopia.
Answer: This is the completely real, correct state of individual living organisms.
