Comment: “The War of Gog and Magog” is a prediction written by the prophet Ezekiel in the 5th century BC 2,500 years ago. But the events that are described in the Book of Ezekiel in The Prophets in the Tanakh and the signs that are mentioned there point to our time.
We know that all the original sources written thousands of years ago spoke not about corporeal events, but about spiritual ones. In addition, Gog and Magog are not two different characters, since Gog is the king and Magog is the place he came from.
My Response: The fact is that our entire world is going through a series of corrections, which consist in the opposition of the desire to receive and the desire to bestow, egoistic and altruistic forces, plus and minus. All of nature at the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human levels consists of this.
At the inanimate, vegetative, and animate levels, there are interactions of plus and minus, absorption and expansion, of everything that only exists in nature, in all forces: physical, chemical, etc. This is studied in our earthly sciences.
But the same forces exist at the level at which the properties of a person exist: bestowal and reception. These so-called mental properties are studied only by the science of Kabbalah. We cannot define them precisely because these forces are only partially known to us, for the most part they are hidden.
Moreover, they manifest themselves only in the form in which positive and negative properties are expressed in us. And due to the fact that a person explores them inside himself and on himself, it is very difficult for him to study them because for this he must become separated from himself.
Therefore, when the science of Kabbalah deals with a man’s attitude to himself and to the world, with our properties of bestowal and reception, what in nature is called plus and minus, attraction and repulsion, then our knowledge about the corporeal world is not enough, and we need to explore our inner properties.
But since they are hidden from us and we see them not in front of us, but only inside ourselves, then, by exploring them in ourselves, we are partly an interested party, and therefore, we cannot study ourselves objectively.
As a result, the science of Kabbalah has developed and is developing only to the extent that a person can rise above himself. Only in this form when he kind of repulses himself, rises above himself, which is called “in faith above reason,” can he research himself objectively, regardless of his attitude to what he is studying, and can he only study the properties themselves.
