Question: If everything is predetermined in terms of pleasure and suffering and if we understand where man is going and how he will behave, then why did nature do it this way? Where does it want to lead us?
Answer: Nature developed from the primordial element, a desire in its purest form, which evolved through inanimate, vegetative, and animate forms until it reached the form of “man.” Likewise, a person in our world, through his development, comes to his next form.
Each phase that we go through—inanimate, vegetative, and animate—develops itself. At each stage, according to the law of negation of negation, a person starts to feel that he can no longer remain in this state, he must radically change it, rise from it, and feel it is no longer acceptable for him.
And then the previous state degenerates and the next step manifests itself. So from the inanimate, the vegetative part of desire with corresponding vegetative nature evolves, then the animate, and then man appears.
We are now at a very interesting stage. We worked out our previous stage of development, came to its denial, the rejection of it, we see that our world and our lives are finite, flawed, and temporary, and we do not know what to do next.
We do not see the next stage yet, but the current stage is practically unbearable. We can no longer stay in it because it leads to self-destruction, terror, disintegration of families, disintegration of culture, and the end of science.
That is, we have reached the final stage in everything, but we do not see the next one yet. It should begin to reveal itself. Therefore, the science of Kabbalah is now being revealed as a means of transition to a new state.
