When speaking of what is rational, we generally mean that which is in accordance with the limitations of the human mind and our empirical knowledge.

When discussing G‑dliness, however, such a definition will not suffice—since G‑dliness is inherently that which defies limitation. Instead, our definition of rational must be that which has some analogous relationship to the workings of the human psyche—since the human psyche itself is made ‘in the image of G–d.’
