Interesting way of looking at the sephiroth
Yours, Lord, are the greatness (gedullah), might (geburah), splendor (tif’ereth), triumph (nesah), and majesty (hod)–yes all (kol) that is in heaven and on earth
(gedullah = hesed). All the sephiroth together are an image of the nature of God, his different attributes. Down here in the human world it seems like individual people tend to exemplify one of his attributes, rather than all of them. I’ve noted before that leftists rarely deviate from hesed.
At the moment I’m seeing what Scholem has to say about “the mind of God”, or the Ein Soph. Reality is all the above attributes (and more, those are only five), and Ein Soph is the highest that all of them derive from.
The Greek parallel of Ein Soph is ᾰ̓́πειρος. Some believe it’s borrowed from that. And the corresponding concept in Arabic is لا نهاية.
Scholem says this of the mystics
In their view language is ultimately founded on a sequence of nouns that are nothing other than the names of the deity itself.
So when you say the word “table” for instance that’s another way of saying “God”. Or if you address a person by their first name, what you’re really saying is a synonym for “God”. What the sephiroth seem to be is a claim that these are the MAIN names or natures of God. And then Ein Soph is the highest. “Table” doesn’t really get you too far, that wouldn’t be a good symbol for the highest. In other words, Ein Soph is infinity, and that’s at the top. Then there are sephiroth below it, finite attributes. Table is not one of them, because there are more prominent attributes of God. A table IS one of the finite beings that descend from the Ein Soph however.
Mercy for instance is one of the sephirot. Hesed, like I mentioned above. Would you agree that’s one of the most prominent attributes of the divine? That’s pretty universal I would say. We are human, we make mistakes, that whole spiel. I.e. we’re finite, we’re not infinity, we’re not the Ein Soph. You can be severe or merciful to finite beings for making mistakes. In fact you can be both. People tend to be severe to others and merciful to those like themselves. Hence the bioleninism phenomenon. Whoops, I was just severe, wasn’t I? They’re finite, they make mistakes, I forgive them, they might be destroying humanity, I show them mercy though. Too much mercy and you allow humanity to be destroyed- that seems out of balance. A lot of our political order can be understood through knowing that severity is perceived by them to be the “evil sephirot”. It explains the prevailing ethos of “moral relaxation”. All-pervasive mercy is another way of looking at it. My question is, are mercy and the Ein Soph one? I don’t think they are. This is what I mean when I talk about living in dim, filtered light. Mercy is one attribute of many and getting stuck there causes malfunctions in Creation.
Carrying on with the concept in question, the Moshiach is the incarnation of the Ein Soph. That’s what they’re trying to bring about, secularly or otherwise. If severity is the devil I wonder if it is the true Ein Soph that will emerge. The Kabbalistic system itself, I’ve discussed before, seems to dwell within a filtered light. In other words, their Ein Soph itself is one sephirot on a grander system. “We have the ghoa-uld, we have kun-trohul.” Control of immanentizing the Antichrist, yes yes. If you are too irrationally self-centered to incorporate the revelation of the German Renaissance then you will bring forth only a limited Moshiach. You get closer to infinity by synthesizing the noblest creations of God’s children whom you think of as the goyim. I know my words fall on deaf ears- they call em clouds for a reason. There are rational ways to discuss “the Antichrist” and this is one way of doing that in an off the reservation manner. Ya know, not a heavy subject. Consider the possibility that that’s what they’re really doing. I’ve showed you that historically they literally prayed to Satan, and that alone should suffice as evidence. I know, people just rather dwell in the dim, filtered light instead of thinking about any of this.
