The Taliban Cannot Be Bribed

547.05Question: Americans have estimated the value of Afghanistan’s undeveloped mineral resources at three thousand billion dollars. There are iron ore, copper, gold, oil, marble, and precious stones there. Lithium and cobalt are metals that are the basis of “green” technologies such as batteries, solar panels, and wind turbines. The world needs them very much.

The Taliban, if they wanted, could become new copper barons, lithium kings, and oil sheikhs. Do you think Afghanistan can turn into such a country?

Answer: I think that one does not interfere with the other. What difference does it make today being the head of a serious international mafia, being a politician, managing production? It is money, and money is everywhere.

And the rest is what? Ideology? They do not allow anyone near their ideology.

Question: Can they be bought with worldly rewards and turned into barons or aristocrats?

Answer: No, because the most important thing for them is their ideological task: for the green banner of Islam to fly over the whole world. They cannot change it. This is the most important thing for them.

Question: Why can’t they be moved from this? Why can’t you buy them?

Answer: Because it is faith. This is this world and that is that world, it is eternity, it is the upper force.

Comment: We always say that we exist in a truly corrupt world.

My Response: Not everything is for sale. They will remain themselves, and they will reformat everyone else for themselves.

Question: Do you think that the rest will format themselves to match them? Because they are weak before them?

Answer: Involuntarily. Of course. Moreover there are small but very serious Islamic groups in almost all countries of the world. That is, they have something to rely on.

Question: Is this a kind of plotted scenario?

Answer: Of course. It is said in the Torah that at the end of the world Islam will spread throughout the world and will reach the state when it will be replaced by the Mashiach (Messiah).

Mashiach is the same Allah, the upper one, who will give humanity connection with the Creator. It is a force that will raise our world from its egoistic existence in the lowest, most disgusting form to unification with the Creator, to similarity to the Creator.

Question: Are we already in this disgusting, low form today? Are we on the edge already?

Answer: No, because we do not feel it. It should be felt by people. A terrible state should manifest itself, but after that comes redemption and ascent.

Will Europe Be Destroyed By Migrants?

431.05Question: In 1989, the walls between East and West Berlin collapsed in Germany. We thought that freedom was coming—Europe without borders!

Today wall after wall is being built. In Europe, Greece and Bulgaria are building a forty kilometer fence on the border with Turkey. Austria has built a wall on the border with Italy, France—a wall in the port of Calais where migrants gather to get to Britain, and 175 kilometers of barbed wire installed on the Hungarian-Serbian border. A five meter stone wall is being built inside the city in Munich to separate the locals from the migrant quarter. Lithuania is putting up a wall on the border with Belarus. This is Europe today.

Do you think it is possible to stop migration?

Answer: We are witnessing the burial of Europe. This continent is as if sinking under water. The proud, free banner of Islam is wavering above it. It is because Islam has this religious banner: “We must take over the world. If not today, then in 100 years, in 200 years, but we have to do it. We are doing this in the name of Allah.”

Then China will come, which will do this for the sake of ruling the world. Therefore, there will be big problems between Islam and China. But I think they will somehow come to an agreement because China has no other ideology than just to govern.

I think that such a development of events is better than an atomic war. Gradually people will understand that it is necessary to live differently somehow. Then Kabbalah will tell us how to do it, how to balance all this diversity, variety, and hatred in the world.

Kabbalah will be able to explain this and bring a common denominator.

Question: Are you saying that in any case the direction will be to the wisdom of Kabbalah?

Answer: You have no other way to make it so that egoistic people, initially created with a great egoism, could live with each other and at the same time could get along with the upper, positive force. It will be clearly revealed as an urgent need for connection between people, between countries, between everyone.

Question: Do you think that we need to come to the critical point so that it will really be revealed?

Answer: We are studying that this is how it should be. Humanity must reach the point of recognizing its own insignificance, egoistic character, hopelessness, desperation, and utter futility. In principle, it recognizes this, but for now it can somehow obscure it.

However, when it sees this with its own eyes, so that in front of it or around it there will be the ego will be standing—humanity surrounded by this huge egoistic beast, then they will understand. From the opposite. Egoism itself will show them that they need to move toward the connection.

Four Scenarios For Ending The Pandemic

220In the News (JAMA): Potential COVID-19 Endgame Scenarios Eradication, Elimination, Cohabitation, or Conflagration?”

“Differential vaccine access, persistent vaccine hesitancy, emerging viral variants, and deadly global disease waves may well stand in the way. In that volatility has heretofore been the invariant attribute of SARS-CoV-2, envisioning a future steady state can be inherently problematic. This Viewpoint describes 4 potential scenarios—eradication, elimination, cohabitation, and conflagration—comprising a spectrum of ‘endgames’ that may constitute the resolution of the COVID-19 pandemic; however, other scenarios also may be possible. …

“What would it take to eradicate SARS-CoV-2? By definition, eradication would require the permanent global reduction of the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2–mediated disease to zero. To realize such an outcome, sufficient herd immunity would have to be achieved through vaccination and prior infection. …

“Given these relatively astringent requirements, eradication may prove to be too aspirational a goal even as a thought experiment, let alone as a public health strategy. However, smallpox, yet another highly contagious respiratory infection, was irreversibly eradicated, an outcome once considered unimaginable. …

“Other vaccine-preventable airborne diseases such as measles and rubella have been the subject of elimination, that is, the regional, rather than global reduction of disease prevalence to zero. … Elimination may be close-at-hand in Israel, a model of vaccination efficiency wherein incident SARS-CoV-2 cases are presently at 0.7% of their all-time high. …

“absent indefinite future vaccination efforts against SARS-CoV-2, durable elimination, let alone eradication, may prove infeasible.

“Alternatively, might a more civil cohabitation be achieved with SARS-CoV-2, an outcome short of all-out eradication or substantial elimination? In this scenario, vaccine-mediated protection would go so far as to prevent the most severe manifestations of COVID-19, interrupt the chain of viral transmission, and counter the majority of emergent viral variants. …

“Absent a cohabitation option, the endgame may well come to resemble a conflagration, that is, a steady state characterized by moderate-level endemicity of SARS-CoV-2. With large segments of the population undervaccinated due to access constraints, hesitancy, or immunocompromised states, the circulation of SARS-CoV-2 is bound to remain robust. This would afford the virus with continuous opportunities to replicate and adapt so as to evade host-mediated and vaccine-derived immune responses. Among vaccinated populations, infections could still arise periodically due to incomplete vaccine-derived immunity, the waning of vaccine efficacy, evasion by new viral variants, or transmission from the unvaccinated. …

“The degree of conflagration may come to depend substantially on the efficacy and acceptance of vaccines by geography. …

“Only a year ago, much of the world was united in lockdown in the midst of the first outbreak of COVID-19. Today, the global experience is widely divergent. Israel, New Zealand, Vietnam, and Brunei may well be approaching elimination. The United Kingdom, the United States, and China, for their part, appear to exist in a state of cohabitation. In contrast, India, other parts of Southeast Asia, and much of South America appear to be weighed down by a conflagration-like state. …Ultimately, where on the endgame spectrum individual countries end up will depend on both the collective choices and realities of the global community and the oft-inscrutable and perhaps unpredictable dynamics of SARS-CoV-2.”

Question: No one seems to know when the pandemic will end. Do you know?

Answer: No. It depends only on people.

Question: What should people do to end the pandemic?

Answer: They must do everything together. Let’s all of us together, but all together and in the same manner, stop observing any precautions. And the pandemic will end.

No germs, no infections at all. We destroy all of them with our connection. It is said that a city of the wicked that are all together is impossible to overtake by storm or by anything.

Question: Ok, let’s fantasize. If all of humanity decided not t0 observe any precautions, what would happen?

Answer: Do whatever you want! Just do so that everyone is, as they say, soul to soul. No harm will come to you. “Only together” is the miracle.

Comment: We might as well decide together that we are taking precautions or decide that we are not taking them. But we do it together.

My Response: Yes, the main thing is together. We can rebel against the Creator. If we are all together, “My sons defeated me” is what the Creator will say in this case.

Thus, there is another solution instead of these four.

Only together, no matter what. This is the cure for everything.

Question: Is this a language that nature understands?

Answer: Of course! It is the only one.

Comment: And when we are separated, when we are against each other.

My Response: You can fabricate anything but every day more and more new viruses and all sorts of things will be revealed and will be crawling out to you.

Question: Do you think that this is what nature is pushing us all to, and it leads us only to this?

Answer: Of course! So that we would raise our hands and say: “That’s it! We give up, God, just help us make a common decision.”

Question: Will we come to this? It looks so unrealistic, especially today. Will we be able to take this step toward unity? Will we be able to or not?

Answer: The Creator wants us to come to this by ourselves. We will come at some point.

Gradually, more and more people in the world understand hopelessness, but they simply do not see a solution. On the other hand, our group is growing, it understands this solution and gradually wants to reach it. Of course they will come together.

I do not have a request to the Creator because He has a program, and according to this program, terrible suffering lies ahead! It will eventually bring us to a normal state and make human beings out of us.

This means that we will understand clearly what is happening to us, who we are, what we should do, how we should think about each other, and so on. It will make humans out of us! However, this is certainly a very long path.

Yet, there is a short way. It is the path of light when we, by our coming closer to each other, cause the manifestation of the upper light upon us, which is the quality of bestowal, love, and connection. Then we will get rid of any pandemic very quickly and easily.

Question: Is this your fifth scenario?

Answer: Yes, in addition to those four.

Happiness Pill

962.2Comment: Natalia Volskaya writes to you: “Why are we arranged in such a way? If someone fills his apartment to the ceiling with newspapers, we call him crazy. If a woman lives in a trailer full of cats, we call her ridiculous. Yet, when people pathologically accumulate such sums of money that they throw an entire nation into poverty, we put them on the cover of a magazine and pretend that this is a role model.”

My Response: Because this is the way it is. Should I imitate the cat owner? A person should see some kind of example in front of him. But what examples can I give humanity in order for it to learn from them?

Question: Is this why I give examples of these billionaires and rich people?

Answer: Of course, to make it clear to everyone. A book called “How I earned my first billion” should be in demand. I am sure it exists out there somewhere.

Comment: There are many such books. Is this the face of humanity?

My Response: After all, this is a desire. We cannot get away from our desire, from the desire to be fulfilled, to satisfy our beloved egoism. This poor thing suffers all the time.

Question: Is this the most natural fulfillment? You are free if you have money, you are actually happy if you have money and so on, right? Does this mantra work?

Answer: This is how we are arranged. Yes.

Question: What could it be replaced with? Or does it not need to be replaced with anything? Will humanity continue to move toward the search for this fulfillment?

Answer: If you invent a happiness pill, then you will replace it.

Question: What is your happiness pill like?

Answer: It must make me feel happy. What difference does it make to me what color it will be or whether it will be square or in drops?

Comment: Then for me it would be nice not to pay attention to anything, to be indifferent to all annoyances.

My Response: But this is different for everyone! It does not matter. Someone, on the contrary, wants to be in search, to envy everyone, to aspire for something, and so on.

Question: Do we need an individual “pill” for everyone if it were be possible to invent it?

Answer: Yes. To satisfy this desire for happiness, for fulfillment, for knowledge, for power, for what my egoism wants.

Question: If we sum it up, what will fulfill a person after all? What will he come to?

Answer: He will not be fulfilled. Never and in no way! Egoism is a spiritual force, you cannot satisfy and fill it with any corporeal fulfillments.

Question: Then what can fulfill it?

Answer: Love. This is a universal thing. You do not need to name anything else.

A person should feel that he needs to love someone and feel this feeling that fulfills him, feel that he fulfills his beloved—the Creator, humanity, it does not matter what and how. We do not need anything else.

Question: Will humanity come to this in one way or another?

Answer: It will begin to come closer to it ultimately. It will see by trial and error that nothing fulfills it. There is really nothing to be fulfilled with. There will be a huge abyss of unfolding emptiness! Then awareness will gradually appear in humanity: “So what should we do? What is the purpose?”

Question: Will this state called love then come gradually?

Answer: Yes. Everything is already written, everything is prepared. What is left is just to reach it.

Why Does A Spark Of Good Prevent You From Winning

293In the News (CityinFocus): “In December of 2012, Spanish athlete Iván Fernández Anaya was competing in a cross-country race in Spain. He was running second, some distance behind race leader Abel Mutai (bronze medalist in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the London Olympics). Close to the finish line, Iván saw Abel–certain to be the winner of the race–pull up about 10 meters before the finish line. He had become confused by the signage and stopped, thinking he had already completed the race.

“Iván was right behind him and, realizing what was happening, started shouting at the Kenyan to continue running, but Abel didn’t understand Spanish. Realizing what was taking place, Iván approached Abel and gently pushed him forward to victory.

“When a journalist asked Iván, ‘Why did you do that?’ he replied, ‘My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life where we push and help each other to win.’ The journalist insisted, ‘But why did you let the Kenyan win?’ Iván responded, ‘I didn’t let him win; he was going to win. The race was his.’ The journalist again said, ‘But you could have won!’ Iván looked at him and replied, ‘But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honour in that medal? What would my mother think of that?’ The world has made Iván a hero, pointing to him as an icon of sportsmanship.

Answer: This is some answer! That is, his mother apparently is a mother who would shame him for not doing this. This is upbringing.

Question: The shame that someone feels, is it good?

Answer: It means a lot, of course. Moreover, it involves his mom.

Comment: This was almost the main factor for him, apparently.

My Response: Yes. If the Olympic athlete says so it is great!

Question: Why don’t we live like this? So, I read this, and I immediately have such a warm feeling.

Answer: Of course! This man showed the real Man within.

Comment: This is sport!

My Response: Yes, undoubtedly! Not what we have today: dope, cheating, anything to win.

Question: So, do you think that a huge degradation has happened since 2012?

Answer: It happened of course. But still, you see, there are people who cannot go for it.

Question: Why does a person not adjust himself to live like this? Why doesn’t humanity come to this?

Answer: A person should still receive satisfaction even from this. We are not talking about him going by faith above reason, about bestowing against his nature, and so on. But within his nature, through education, he can make it so that he cannot steal, he cannot betray, he cannot do something that is against people, against others. Education means a lot.

Question: Do you think that education can achieve this?

Answer: Not in the form that we talk about in Kabbalah, but it is possible. At least universal human values can be achieved by education.

Question: From the point of view of Kabbalah, does this spark of goodness and bestowal exist in a person? Is it there or not?

Answer: Every person has it. Everyone! Absolutely! It all depends only on the style of upbringing and the intensity of upbringing, the ability to educate, etc. so that it would be possible to instill bestowal above reception in a person, so that he could even give his life for the life of another.

These are not spiritual qualities yet, but this is something that would, of course, be incomparably better, some indicators in human society in comparison with what we have today.

Today everything is directed only at me, someone beloved, dear, and unique—by all means

Question: And what does education lead to in Kabbalah? For this spark to turn to fire?

Answer: In Kabbalah, this is very specific. That is, it is necessary to convince a person that it is impossible to live differently because everything is programmed by nature. And after that, to explain to him where to get this supernatural force of nature, which must replace his egoism.

Comment: That is, instead of living for yourself, live for others. You can find it only outside yourself. You will not find it in yourself.

My Response: You cannot find it. And education will not help here. Education works at human level, but this is above human.

We Will Reach Love But Only Through Hunger

294.2Question: The number of people suffering from hunger has increased in the world. There are more than eight hundred million of them. The number of people dying of hunger has increased six fold. Researchers claim the reason for it is due to climate change and constant conflicts. The world will starve if this continues. They say that a great famine is possible.

Do you think it is possible that it will come to this in our world of abundance?

Answer: There is no abundance in the world. It just seems to you that there is. Everything can be emptied in one day. All these big supermarkets, malls, whatever you see, everything can disappear in an instant and there will be nothing in the world, not even what to wear, let alone to eat.

Question: That is, one little fright and everything will be sold out and will disappear in a blink of an eye? Do you think this option is possible?

Answer: Yes. I believe this will happen. Otherwise, humanity cannot be convinced.

Question: That is, it is not for nothing that it is written in the Torah that only hunger advanced humanity? Does it still work this way?

Answer: So it is said: “Love and hunger rule the world.” And it will be so. We will reach love but only through hunger.

Question: If love had been reached earlier, then there would have been no hunger?

Answer: This is true. But with hunger people will grasp that hunger is a not the problem but the lack of love, and then this will change.

Question: Pease tell me what will this hunger lead us to if there is one?

Answer: We will start to seriously analyze the problems of life, or rather our own problems, and simply ask the question: “What do we need to change in ourselves in order for nature to treat us differently?”

For this to happen, we need to change our attitude toward others. Then nature will treat us differently. That is, if I love others and try to block my ever-growing egoism with some kind of empathy, then nature will treat me differently. I have to show nature that I want it to change its attitude toward me.

Question: Is it enough that I understand why nature puts such pressure on me and that I want to change? Is my request “I want to change” enough?

Answer: Of course.

Comment: We can avoid coming to this and must say: “I want it.”

My Response: You cannot change yourself. Not in any way! But you can realize that you must change. And you can also realize that it depends on your request to nature. We will achieve this.

Allah, The Creator, And The Taliban

273.02Comment: America has poured trillions of dollars into Afghanistan. It is now equipped with modern technology, missiles, tanks, artificial intelligence, everything.

And the Taliban on carts with Kalashnikov machine guns and bazookas, screaming just liberated Afghanistan from the Americans. This is contrary to our vital logic that you should build up your weapons.

My Response: The spirit wins!

Comment: Does the spirit win after all? They are not the nicest people. It is a blend of such evil. It drove out forces that came to build a more peaceful society.

My Response: It is better to ask differently: Who feeds the Taliban? Who supplies them? Who pays them? Who deals with them? Where do they get unlimited opportunities? They do not think of going somewhere to work. Apparently, by the way they act, they know for certain that they will eat today and tomorrow, and everything will be fine.

Others will take care of the work, and they will shoot. That is, behind-the-scenes work is going on in full.

Question: Still, I would like to ask about the work of the Creator. We have an alliance of sinners. Why can it defeat all other alliances?

Answer: Because they are united. They understand each other and work for each other. Therefore, there are no other forces against them.

Comment: But this is still evil.

My Response: They have an ideology. They want to spread this ideology to the whole world. And they say that whoever is with them will understand how good it is, how beautiful it is, how heartfelt it is. They will not tolerate any filth, no debauchery. Let women stay home. The men will work. Etc.

That is, everything is fine and there is no need to go beyond the framework of this ancient way.

Question: And does it work? Does it unite them and give them the strength to win?

Answer: Yes. I think the world will see that in the end, at the level of our world—apart from Kabbalah, apart from “love your neighbor” and attaining the Creator—many will follow them!

A primitive dictatorship, understandable to everyone, and mandatory for everyone. And if not, they kill immediately.

Question: So it will be either the fanatical dictatorship you are talking about or the dictatorship of “love your neighbor as yourself”? We have two dictatorships meet here.

Answer: Yes. But the difference is huge!

Question: But why don’t they accept the dictatorship of “love your neighbor as yourself”?

Answer: Man must come to this! This is something impossible! And there is fear. There is love and there is fear. You see what a huge difference this is! This is awareness!

Question: Fear always wins in this world. What are your hopes for love? You spread it all the time.

Answer: I have no hope. The only thing is what is inside, from within nature, space, humanity, from within, love still controls everything.

Question: And one way or another, through these blows, humanity will come to it?

Answer: It will come. It is inexplicable!

Comment: Yes, it is getting foggier and foggier.

My Response: But it is always the case. The greatest darkness is before dawn.

Question: But dawn must come?

Answer: Yes. There is no doubt about it!

Question: That is, the world, in one way or another, is governed by this spark of love? One way or another, will a single Creator exist for all religions, for the whole world, and will they come to this in such winding ways?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Through hatred? And that equals love?

Answer: Love.

How To Overcome Children’s Addiction To Video Games

531.03Question: The Chinese authorities have banned children from playing video games for more than three hours a week. They are only allowed to play for one hour on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and on holidays from 8 pm to 9. This is how China is fighting with children’s addiction to video games.

It is clear that a lot of video games are harmful to children. For China, such a ban system will work. And for the world?

Answer: Eventually, it will not work for China or for the world. Children, if they are interested, will invent other ways out of this. We will have to make some other game.

Question: But how to get children out of this addiction? They shoot there, kill, do not leave these games and live in them.

Answer: There is no way to get them out of it yet. I don’t see that it is possible to invent something today for all the children to move to something different instead of video games.

Question: If possible, give advice to parents who moan and cry that children do not leave these games, sit for days and nights. What to do?

Answer: The global solution across the Internet is to disconnect! Do something so that you can be on these sites for no more than three hours.

Question: So you are in favor of prohibitive methods?

Answer: Education is always based on the carrot and the stick; otherwise, it is impossible to raise a person from a small animal.

Education is when you eventually impose it on him, and he gradually acquires a different scale of values.

Question: What scale of values should he acquire? What would you like the little man to acquire?

Answer: He must see the task before him. Let’s say at the end of the week or even at the end of the day to provide some work, not heavy, but work that still requires some effort, time, communication, ingenuity, that is, everything that you want to develop in him. And he can’t buy off or take it from someone in any way for any money. Then he will have to not sit for 10 hours in these games, but do this task after all.

Question: And what would you personally like to develop in a little man?

Answer: Real education is an example.

Question: And what kind of father and mother should be in front of him?

Answer: The kind that have a goal in life, and they seriously want to achieve this goal. And they work every day to achieve this goal.

Do Not Pull Out The Weeds

629.4Question: There was a man who took great pride in his beautiful lawn. One day, he saw dandelions growing in the grass. No matter how hard he tried to fight it, to his dismay the dandelions continued their rapid growth. He turned to a sage and asked: “How can you help me clear the field of dandelions?” “You need to start loving them,” said the sage.

We want to see a certain kind of field, a certain kind of life, but life is full of dandelions. We keep fighting them, but the struggle never leads to anything. Do we have to love them in order for them to disappear?

Answer: Of course not.

Question: What will happen?

Answer: There will be not only dandelions, but all sorts of weeds and thorns. And you will realize that this is what should exist in this field. But you will find yourself in the correct interaction with them. You will see a new life, a new world, in their manifestations toward you.

Question: So my task is not to clear the field of weeds?

Answer: Not to do anything. What appears before us should be appearing exactly as it is. We only take out of it what we need for our existence and leave everything else as is. It will change depending on our inner changes.

Question: So I never destroy anything?

Answer: You should never destroy anything!

Question: What if I encounter evil, all sorts of troubles, haters?

Answer: Do nothing! You cannot destroy anything. You cannot do anything about either good or evil. You cannot even understand what is evil and what is good. This is possible only when we behave correctly, and then through our internal balance between all our bad and good qualities, each within himself and between us, we cause changes in the surrounding nature: animate, vegetative, and inanimate, as well as changes in their balance.

Question: How do I act correctly regarding what I see?

Answer: I must work at the level of “love your neighbor as yourself” and perceive everything around me as a manifestation of the Creator. I should excel at loving all of nature without trying to see something good or bad in it, which I see through my egoism when something seems good or bad to me based on some criteria of taste, or smell, or its usefulness, while something else does not.

I must accept everything as the upper force and try to shape myself as the correct component of this force, to be in harmony with it, and then everything will fall in its place. My views will change: whatever has to leave will leave, and what needs to stay will remain. If necessary, dinosaurs will reappear, but they will be friendly.

Question: So, I am always trying to break this connection with nature. Is this my main issue?

Answer: Not break it, I am trying to cripple it.

Question: And it responds with weeds, each time bigger and bigger?

Answer: Yes.

Question: And if I try to find a connection with it, to resonate with it, then I will practically not notice the weeds?

Answer: I will simply not criticize it. If I need something, I will take very carefully from it, but never harm it.

It all depends on the attitude. Attitude is not a physical action. It happens afterward. It is the feeling of love for everything around me because it comes from the Creator.

I look at everything as nasty, dirty, as cruelty among animals and so on, and I see that it is all nature, coming from the Creator.

And the reason for it being this way is also explained to me in the Torah. If man were kind, then all other parts of nature under him would also be kind to each other. And naturally, the lion would lie down with the lamb, and the little child would play with them, and everything would be fine. It depends only on the attitude of people toward nature. I think we will see this. It is pretty close.

Question: By nature you mean virtually the whole universe?

Answer: The entire universe including our world and all interactions in it. Up to the point that we can change our relationship to nature in such a way that with our good attitude, we will never get a negative reaction from it. On the contrary, if you need to take something from nature—like water or bread—you are welcome to. Everything will grow and bloom beautifully and there will be enough for everyone! All we need to do is to correct our relations.

This is not a fairy tale. I think people will start to understand this. And then they will curtail all their grand plans like flying to Mars or others. They will not need any of it.

The most important thing is to make our life on Earth self-sufficient, beautiful, and to engage in inner contemplation. Not through physical external expansion. We will achieve nothing by it. We will only burn ourselves and exhaust all our resources. But on the contrary: by inner deep scrutiny into nature, we will begin to attain its eternity, infinity, and its altogether different structure. This is where everything is.

I think that people will now go through a certain stage of realizing the uselessness of their scientific and technological development and become convinced of its futility.

We see today that all these years of progress have amounted to nothing. It allowed us to grow to eight billion people instead of two billion in the course of 100 years. But what good is it? Who among these people who were born and grew up are happy or satisfied? What good are they doing for themselves or the world? Perhaps it would have been better not to bring them into the world or develop them but let them exist in a different form, not developing, not being born.

Question: Is it possible to exist without being born?

Answer: Of course. What good is there in them coming to this world? It says so in the Torah, the sages sat and discussed: who is happy—one who was born or one who was not born? And they decided, happy, of course, is one who was not born, but if you were born, you must behave correctly.

Question: So you should still choose the goal of life correctly?

Answer: Yes. But the one who was not born is happier. And what does he do then? He has a different life we know nothing of in a non-physical form.

Dear Scientists, PhDs And Professors!

600.04Comment: Humanity faces many complex challenges: climate change, food shortages, chronic and oncological diseases. And while technology may provide access to high-quality education, food, and healthcare, at the same time hundreds of millions of people are being deprived of the opportunity to work. This could have colossal consequences for us as a species. There are scientists who devote the bulk of their time to studying this so-called “mass extinction of professions.”

My Response: This is nonsense! I totally disagree with them! Man was not born to just work and occupy himself this way. A person must study his destiny in this world and realize this destiny. This is the meaning of his existence in this world.

Everything else should be only as needed, as an auxiliary! But only this way!

Question: Do you think it is wrong that it occupies most of a person’s time?

Answer: Of course! See what they did to people! From morning till night, people run around this earthly ball and are looking for something there, poking around, digging! See what is being done! What an “anthill” we have created in order to occupy ourselves!

If you took the screen, like on a computer, cleaned it, and left just the most necessary things, you would see that a tenth of humanity is more or less engaged in real, necessary productive work. Take the rest away, send them to sleep! And everything will calm down.

Question: Provide only what is necessary?

Answer: Of course! Nature will force us. See how it uses a stick to drive us toward happiness.

Question: How can a person shift? After all, this is his life.

Answer: If he does not hear, then his nature will switch—precisely by blows.

Question: These blows come precisely to switch us?

Answer: Yes. And what, now we are going to do useless things, just to occupy ourselves, not to think about anything?

We need to provide ourselves with what we need, and all the rest should be directed only to correct communication with each other to achieve mutual understanding, mutual help, to process our brains and feelings so that we feel the need for each other, moral support for each other, and so on. It will save us

Question: In this you can find happiness and whatever you want, the way you used to find it in your work?

Answer: Absolutely everything. Complete relaxation! It is only necessary to understand that we have no other way out. And the sooner we start doing this, the easier it will be to move on to this new type of human life.
