Comment: Baal HaSulam writes that the Ari’s book The Tree of Life (Etz Chaim in Hebrew) is identical in its importance to the Torah that was given to us on Mount Sinai.
One can imagine what the Torah means for all humanity. Today, all culture, art, painting, all religions, and all science are based on it. It’s hard to say what life would be like if there were no Torah. Everything is built on this, right up to our relationship.
And the book The Tree of Life was written only 500 years ago and was published literally 200 years ago. But there are still no implications; no one knows about it.
My Response: It should manifest itself in the future. We hope that its consequences will manifest themselves already in our days and will become the basis not only of our culture, but also of the life of all mankind.
