Reason-Based Logic

88The rest of the concepts, which combine the reason for their method and other methods, are forbidden to us. One who uses them breaches, “Turn you not unto the idols.” (Baal HaSulam, “Body And Soul”). 

If you imagine something that you do not perceive in your senses, it means that you are imagining it to yourself, and therefore, it is idolatry.

To imagine something in your uncorrected, non–spiritual qualities as real is pure idolatry. There is no other way to call it.

Question: So, should we not imagine unification, love, or bestowal either?

Answer: You can imagine it not as something independent but as existing between people. Then there is nothing wrong with it.
