Question: Some biologists claim that the purpose of research is to understand the program of life. What is the real program of life according to the wisdom of Kabbalah?
Answer: The program of life is to enable every level of nature to gradually develop from one level to another and to reach the highest level on the evolutionary ladder until the human level, the level of Adam (Man), who resembles the upper force. The animate level in him doesn’t change in its essence, but the human level in him develops so that he becomes like the upper force. He only resembles (Domeh) the upper force, which is why he is called Adam.
This means that a person doesn’t become the upper force, the Creator, but only becomes similar to the upper force, becomes a partner in his attitude, including the levels of nature inanimate, vegetative, and animate. A person cannot ascend above the human level. He can only acquire the attribute of bestowal from the upper force, which means that he develops this quality in his intention but not in his actual nature.
