Prophets, Joshua, 20:4: And he shall flee to one of those cities, and he shall stand at the entrance of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city to them, and give him a place, and he shall dwell among them.
If a man considers himself ready to get in touch with other desires, with other people, to rise to the next level of correction, to greater connection on the path to the desire of Adam, then he should decide this only in the court of elders.
Elders are those who have attained the highest degree of GAR. They sit at the gates of the city and decide whether or not to let him climb the next step. He must pass this exam.
Question: I do not want to mix this world with the spiritual world, but nevertheless, in some eastern villages such councils of elders still exist. Can we say that this is a projection onto our world?
Answer: This is the natural state of humanity when it appoints elders as its judges.
Question: Will we come to this someday?
Answer: It will come automatically but not in this form, of course: a city, a gate, old people sitting on stones, you come to them, and they begin to discuss something.
Question: Still, the Torah speaks of a city of criminals. What decision do the elders make? That a person has transgressed the law unintentionally?
Answer: No, there are different states and different settlements, cities. If a man wants to be judged fairly, correctly, then he goes to such people, and they make their own judgment about him.
