The Role Of Technology In Human Relations

962.7Question: You say that it is necessary to bring city-dwellers to some degree of integration because nature is leading us to this.

What kind of integration is it? Is it when very different people still come to some degree of connection with each other? Can you explain what you mean by connection between city-dwellers?

Answer: Connection between people does not necessarily have to be in the city because this connection will arise from direct tactile contact, physical communication.

Today we see people sitting at the same table in a cafe talk to each other through phones. They have become used to communicating with each other through a keyboard.

A person sees how new types of communication affect him, he gets used to them, and he wants to be connected to others through some kind of device that will simultaneously supply him with all kinds of data, pictures, and anything you like, so that he can diversify the contact with each other with musical inserts, etc.

That is, relationships between people will increasingly pass through the systems we invent. They will allow us to better understand each other and tune into each other.

And we will not run away from this somewhere in the forest, yell, and look for connections with each other in that way.

The communication that exists between us today through all kinds of devices will improve and help us communicate faster. In general, we will take the good things we have now and everything that is not needed will gradually be forgotten and removed.

Question: Do you think a person is moving more toward communication through the Internet and using devices over some kind of physical limitations?

Answer: And what can we give each other with our physical limitations? That I must necessarily see a person? Maybe I will be in such a contact with him where I do not need to see or hear him. I must reach some kind of connection with him but so that it is as complete as possible and in the form in which I want it to be received. It can be different for everyone.

I think that our devices are increasingly leading us to the fact that we want to be more connected to each other internally. And then we will see that they do not help us in this either. They only lead us to this decision.

In addition, a purely physical connection between us also does not give anything. It does not decide anything between people or between governments. On the contrary, it leads us to lie to others, to distance ourselves from them despite the fact that outwardly we do not show it at all.

Blitz Of Kabbalah Tips – 10/7/20

959Question: What is the difference between a virtual community and a spiritual one?

Answer: A virtual community has many different goals. And the spiritual community pursues one goal that is very clear, distinct, and set by its great teachers. And we, as students, are moving toward this goal.

Question: What would you recommend to the owners of such social networks as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube?

Answer: I would advise them to steer the development of social networks in the right direction to give people the opportunity to be in the most open communication with each other, and humanity will quickly catch on to this.

But today, these networks operate in a way that prevents people from being properly connected. They should allow the forces of nature to lead people to the right goal. But they interfere, and this is their greatest evil.

Question: What kind of technology could you suggest to develop communication between people? Do you have any ideas?

Answer: No. I think that all ideas will emerge as soon as there is a need for them.

The Meaning Of Life Of A Useless Class

527.01Question: It would be logical to imagine that virtual communities could help people communicate and in real life, but it turns out to be the opposite. Why?

Answer: Because people are ruled by their egoism. You can do nothing about it. Until we correct it, any methods and forms of communication will harm us.

Question: Some futurists believe that computer games will turn out to provide meaning in life for a useless social class. This is what they call people who have lost their jobs. There may be billions of such people. They will be provided with a basic income and games so that they will not riot. Do you see such a scenario being possible?

Answer: Unfortunately, I do. However, this is not the final form of human development but only an intermediary one. Indeed, this could happen.

Question: Today, a person is in daily contact with so many people that he has never met in his entire life. What opportunity does this give to us? How can one properly use this phenomenon for personal growth?

Answer: I think that today, this phenomenon is hampering our personal growth, and an ordinary person does not have any opportunity to break away from it and grow.

Will We Need The Physical World?

962.7Question: In recent decades, we have seen that technology is ahead of our moral standards. Why does nature allow us to develop technology faster than our moral values grow?

Answer: In order to recognize the evil of human nature and to begin to correct it.

Question: An increasing number of young people prefer to live in the virtual reality. Don’t you think that it is possible that we will no longer need the physical world at all in the near future?

Answer: No, we will need it. We cannot push a button and say we are canceling this physical world. Even if we wanted to, we would not be able to do so. We would still have to maintain our physical existence in some way.

In principle, all of our thoughts can be concentrated in the virtual world. However, this will only take a short period in the process of the recognition of the evil of our nature in order to understand where it has driven us to. We will get out of this state and come to the correct form.

Childhood Disease Of Internet Communication

962.2Question: When people communicate on social networks, they lie to each other in order to seem better than they really are. On the other hand, they are more sincere than in direct contact. That is, when I look you into your eyes, it is harder for me to tell the truth. And when we have contact through the screen, it’s much easier.

What did we lose when we stopped communicating with each other physically and looking into each other’s eyes?

Answer: Direct communication requires some preparation, I would say, rising above oneself and being included in another person. And communication through the screen, if it is also incognito, is not communication, it is a one-sided expression of not even your thoughts and views, but of something you want to fill the screen with.

The problem is, that there is no limit for communication on the Internet in either quantity or quality. And this is why we have entered the area where we are completely degrading. We do not care what others think, what happens as a result of our involvement in the Internet connection. In sum, humanity dilutes itself with filth.

Question: How do you imagine virtual communities of the future?

Answer: Virtual communities of the future will outgrow this childhood disease and adopt clear, strict laws based on the need for the correct development of humanity. It will make people learn, and they will have the time, energy and resources for it.

People will begin to learn, based not just on the moral, but on the spiritual level, which they must achieve. This is how the entire Internet will develop.

Advantages Of Virtual Communication

962.8Question: Is the virtual connection close to the spiritual connection?

Answer: Virtual communication may be close in some way. It certainly moves us to communicate and engage in world thought, but we need to learn how to do it correctly. Undoubtedly, this connection is bringing us closer to the ultimate goal of our development.

Question: Is the virtual world safer for people than the physical world?

Answer: As long as the physical world exists, we are able to destroy one another. As for the virtual world, it all depends on how it will be positioned relative to the physical world: to serve it or vice versa.

Separated By Computer Screens

959Question: Currently nature has separated us with the coronavirus as well as computer screens. We are developing a kind of virtual reality. What is the next stage of the communication level between us?

Answer: When we understand that in the correct connection between us, not the Internet connection, but with corrected feelings, we can create a form of unity that will allow us to feel the hidden layer of nature, then we will begin to reveal nature in its true form.

Question: It is clear that physical communication between people is much harder than virtual because it requires energy and attention. It is much easier to contact others through screens. Once we learn to communicate through screens, will we be able to communicate physically on a different level?

Answer: Maybe. I hope that this is what will happen. I can see from the spread of Kabbalah in the world that this is how we are developing.

Replacement For Physical Contact

962.7Question: Do you think that virtual communities can replace physical contact?

Answer: Without a doubt. Everything moves in a direction where each person will be attached to a modem, a computer, and thus be connected to all of humanity through communication resources.

Question: Does it mean that the need for the physical world will begin to disappear?

Answer: Of course. Why do I need to look at another person? What difference does it make to me if I sit a few meters away from him or a few kilometers away? How does it limit me? It does not.

If I understand that we should be connected by feelings, hearts, minds, and common goals, and if we provide this to each other and correctly express and convey it, then all mechanical types of communication, including even the Internet, lose their value.

Social Media As A Business Model

958Question: The main task of social networks is to glue a person to a TV or computer screen in order to sell something to him, although they were originally built to improve communication between people.

Do you think it is possible to change such a virtual environment? In whose hands should the power over people be? What should they watch? What should they read? What should they sell? After all, everything is determined for you.

Answer: Naturally, everything is determined for me. Nobody asks me. In short, a special body should be created that we can trust and that will manage our education and upbringing. Only this body can declare, expand, reduce, change, and dictate what we should watch and listen to.

Question: And if it is in the hands of governments or private people, then nothing will work?

Answer: Governments do not exist as such. They are managed by all kinds of financial and political tycoons. If it should be in somebody’s hands, then certainly not in the hands of governments.

Learn To Live Only In Thoughts

959Question: Is virtual connection enough to develop an individual as a person?

Answer: In the future, virtual communication will be of a different quality. It will only be the basis for the development of sensory, internal connections that cannot be transmitted through verbal or physical communication.

It just seems to us that we are somehow in contact with each other. We need to establish contact with our hearts and thoughts rather than physically when we are opposite to one other and thus perceive and are impressed by each other.

Question: What new sensory organs would you recommend developing for better communication through virtual connection?

Answer: I would advise people to learn to live only in thoughts so that we would all try to be connected together in one thought called the “thought of creation.” In this thought, we would understand each other, merge with each other, and reach a connection with the thought that governs the entire universe, the entire creation, and in which we must all be included.
