Question: Does the mind change according to the material a person studies? Is the mind of a person who studies the wisdom of Kabbalah different from the mind of a person who studies astronomy for instance?
There are five worlds, one inside the other. The upper light goes through all the worlds, all the way to the center. These worlds are called Adam Kadmon (early man), which means the prototype of man, Atzilut, Beriya, Yetzira, and Asiya. The smallest circle in the center is called our world, in which we live.
We live in the darkest place, while the upper light reaches us through all the worlds from the world of Ein Sof.
Question: There is so much light around us, but the section of our world remains in the dark.
Answer: A person has no need for this light, because we cannot stand the light of bestowal. It is death for us. We can only perceive the egoistic light and we live within it.
