I'm going to tell you a secret, so listen carefully.

Actually, there are two kinds of secrets: Fake secrets. And real secrets.

Fake secrets are only secrets because someone is hiding them from you. Real secrets are the kind that don't have to be hidden from anyone, because even once you tell them, they remain a secret. Because nobody gets what you're talking about anyway.

This secret I'm going to tell you is of the second kind. Only that now that I showed you this video, maybe, just maybe, you will get what I'm talking about.

Start by thinking of the verb "to be". Think isness. How many things do you know that have that property? Do you know of anything that doesn't have isness? Even things that don't exist have isness—they have negative isness.

Take your time on this. Close your eyes and really try to feel what isness is all about. Or else you're not going to get what I'm going to tell you next.

Now think of isifyingness. Not just something sitting there and ising, but actually causing everything that is to is. The Grand Isifier.

This is the only thing that doesn't really fit into the category of isness. Everything that is, can be not is. But that which isifies doesn't work that way. It neither is nor isn't. Instead, it isifies. If you were a computer engineer, you might say it's pre-binary—not a zero, not a one, but something that generates both.

Now I have a surprise for you. Actually, if you know a little Hebrew, it shouldn't be a surprise. But it probably will be anyways.

Look at the way we write G_d in Hebrew—the four letter name that we don't pronounce.

Guess what it means. Three chances and the first two don't count.

The Isifier is actually mentioned elsewhere at Chabad.org. See:

The Adam Files

Where is G‑d?

Next week we have an even more super-awesome video about the Isifier. Come back then. Make sure you have mind insurance—in case it gets blown too far away.
