Question: We call the total of all states, for example, of one person or the whole of humanity, a “gene.” And what is it called in Kabbalah?
Answer: The total of all the states of humanity in its entire history, if we can call it history, is what is called Shechina. Meaning the place where absolutely all the information about everything and everyone is located.
And all the states of a person throughout his life are called “his life” and are a set of Reshimot, spiritual information records.
