Which is more true, the world of the adult, or the world of the child?
Torah, like any wisdom, has departments. You can’t study literature the same way you study biology, and you can’t critique poetry as you would journalism. So too, you can’t study one department of Torah the same as you study another.

Which world is more real? The world of action, or the world where we perceive the effects of our actions?
That which is absolute truth in the world of the child, in your world is an absurd lie. But don’t imagine your world is any closer to the truth than that of the child.
