The Tower Of Babel—The Rise Of Selfishness
Question: During the construction of the tower of Babel, which symbolized the growth of selfishness, there was a mixing of languages. This means that people stopped understanding each other, although they spoke the same language.
What does it mean “inside a person”? Does he cease to understand himself?
Answer: In fact, people not only do not understand each other, but they also do not understand themselves. It turns out that a person lives without realizing why, for what, or in connection with what.
To the extent that he becomes an egoist, he gradually moves away from nature, opposes himself to it. He has nothing to replace this loss with. It turns out that he, in general, loses from both, this and that side.
Question: What happens in a person when he builds the tower of Babel in himself? What is this condition?
Answer: The construction of the tower of Babel is what Nimrod imposed on the people to raise their selfishness. Selfishness must reach a state where it prevails over all other human properties.
