Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What is the greatest pleasure in the world?“
It is written that there is no greater pleasure than reconciling opposites.
Contradiction is a state of indecisiveness, as if we are squeezed in between a set of pliers. We have no idea where truth or lies are, nor how to behave. However, we need to resolve this contradiction.
When it becomes resolved, it feels like the greatest pleasure.
We are given all kinds of contradictions and doubts in order for us to eventually reach a request for help from their common source. In other words, nature intentionally includes opposites in order to bring us to a feeling that we need their resolution in their common source—the higher force of nature, a pure altruistic quality behind everything we experience.
