After grappling with the concepts of the origin of multiplicity and the origin of unity, we tackle the question of the nature of meaning within human experience. The ‘contrast theory of meaning,’ states that one can only appreciate one quality if one has its opposite as a basis of comparison. In the Messianic age, we will ascend to a new level of reality where the contrasts are all within relative levels of goodness.

I struggle with the science and the metaphysical concepts of truth/reality. You have helped me beyond my expectations. Trouble is, I desire a simplicity of understanding which is much like returning to womb. I want to feel comfortable in the not knowing as much as the knowing. I personally feel quantum physics has presented us with evidence which leads us to HeShem, but to be honest, I do not understand the intricacies of the science. Hence my anxiety. I often wish I were a child again, it was a more comfortable time for my soul. Reply
