Answer: In general, yes.
Question: Are there any other descriptions that speak of the Machsom in allegorical language?
Answer: The fact is that man’s exit from an egoistic property to an altruistic one, i.e., the transition from one world to another, occurs gradually. And it is impossible to clearly indicate: now it is happening this way and then another way. This is all associated with many changes in a person.
Question: Can we say that the exodus from Egypt, when a group of 3,000,000 people left it, is crossing the Machsom?
Answer: The exodus from Egypt is a whole process including crossing the Red Sea, then approaching Mount Sinai after a long time, and receiving the Torah. And then there was breaking of the tablets, a seemingly untoward way out of egoism. But we see that it could not be otherwise and that is how they had to come out.
In general, all this is a transition. You cannot register it with a date or one action.
