Thank you everybody for attending class number 3. I hope everybody if you weren't here live on Sunday morning, I'm sure you're already caught up, if not catch up in your own you know spare time but hopefully everybody's caught up we'll continue as if everybody's up to speed. As I mentioned on Sunday if you have questions along the way ask them. You can interrupt. So that you know if there's something that's bothering you, or something you want to just share or something you need an answer to ask it, we'll address it, if it's not too time consuming and then we'll just continue forward. Okay, so let's begin. Okay, class three Adam and Eve a Docucourse. It's literally been 15 billion years in the making but we'll even learn about that 15 billion year number in a later class. So, we're going to continue with the same topic we had on Sunday in classes one and two which was the profound influence of Kabbalah, the Zohar upon this world. So we're going to continue on in the 16th century. This is Dr John Dee brilliant influential man in England. He's an astronomer, mathematician, a navigator, a man of all trades, and different intellectual disciplines. He was also a consultant to Queen Elizabeth, he actually used you know Kabbalist astrology to help set the date for her Coronation. John Dee was considered to be the most learned man in Elizabethan England. Dee's usual influence on the scientific revolution is seen primarily through the lens of mathematics. There were lots of very smart people at the time doing very important things it was early in the scientific revolution. It was during the period of the voyages of exploration and John Dee was considered the most learned man. He wrote a preface to the first english translation of Euclid which was the key geometrical text of antiquity. He was extremely influential in the development of mathematical ideas in England by bringing mathematics into the hands of more ordinary people. He dramatically increases the number of people who can follow something like Newton's Principia. His great mathematical work. Newton's Principia was entirely written in the language of Euclidean Geometry. John Dee was heavily influenced by the Kabbalah and there's no doubt about it. He was someone who saw in Kabbalah the potential tool that could unlock the secrets of the universe. He uses Kabbalah in his Monasteroglyphica which is his great work trying to bring together all the secrets of the universe into one big picture. He believed that by getting closer to the true Kabbalah of nature he was getting back to a true relationship that human beings had once had with the world in which sickness would disappear, poverty would end, hunger would end, that you'd have a return to paradise because of the Kabbalah. So here's an interesting aside, James Bond world renowned a film character John Dee was known as the eyes of the Queen because when not only did he advise her astrologically, you know, for setting the date for a Coronation, and just giving you know astrological advice for a personal life, and Kabbalistic wisdom, He was also a spy for her. So he was known as the Eyes of the Queen and he would always sign his communication with her and a report he gave her with two eyes and then number 7 for the 7 Sephirot, the 7 dimensions, that affect our world directly. We all know, we should know by now, there are 10 dimensions to true reality but only 7 of them affect our world directly. We talked about it on Sunday that's why 7 continents, 7seas, 7 notes of music, 7 colors of the rainbow. So that's how we signed it. Whenever he was giving her report. Ian Fleming who wrote the first novels and created the character of James Bond, was looking for a, you know, an insignia and an identification form a secret code name for his number, so he was a fan of John Dee, many people in England all know John Dee very well, from historical standpoint, and so he took the two eyes, I think we all know where this is going, and he came up with two zeros and that was the birth of 007. So even Kabbalah even affected motion pictures. In the Renaissance they really did see a connection between Kabbalah, Plato, Pythagoras, Hermes Trismegisto, many of these ancient wisdom systems and ancient wisdom figures because they believed that they all had shadows of the truth. The truth being God's real plan for the universe. The real blueprint for the created world. But they only had a facet or a shadow, and Einstein said that: "what we see is just one facet of a crystal" and I think that what dear Newton felt was that all of these thinkers had one particular part of the truth. Meet Paracelsus. The United States National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health about maybe a little over 10 years ago put on a big display celebrating Paracelsus and the medical revolution of the Renaissance, it was a 500 year anniversary, because Paracelsus is an extremely important person in the development of modern medicine. Says the U.S National Library of Combat Congress. I'm sorry is the National Library of Medicine, the effect of Paracelsus on medicine was enormous. He's known as the father of modern medicine. He established the role of chemistry in medicine, Encyclopedia Britannica. The revolution in science began with the work of Paracelsus. So the whole scientific revolution many people looked at Paracelsus as the first person who started to change his thinking, thinking outside the box and he did that through his studies and learning and mastery of Kabbalah. Paracelsus whose full name, if I gave it to you would take up the rest of this film, was a german alchemist and physician of the late 16th century. Paracelsus is a Renaissance figure who many describe as the father of modern pharmaceutical medicine. He is considered one of the first people to break away from the ancient classical traditions of medicine. The same ones that killed so many people during the middle ages. He's someone who took us from a plant-based medicine system to a more chemical based medicine medical system. He was someone who donated his medical services to the poor as a town physician working in times of plague and epidemic disease in the early 16th century in central Europe and he was someone who was very interested in the secrets of nature and in finding links between different parts of the natural world that might not seem to be connected. So the stars, the plants, the human body, for example. Paracelsus tells us the secret to his power, to his wisdom, to his pursuit of new discovery innovation for this world and how to connect the macro cosmic you know the sun the planets the stars with the plants, and the trees, and the forests, and with the human body. Any area of endeavour where there's going to be new discovery, new breakthrough and I said innovation, Paracelsus gives us some advice, He wrote: All of you who seek land beyond the horizon, who teach so much wisdom remember that you must embrace the wisdom of Kabbalah in order to accomplish all your goals. Meet Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz one of the greatest minds of the entire scientific revolution. Everybody heard of Newton not many unless you're you know history and you know science heard of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. He's not a household name like Newton, though many believe he even surpassed Newton in his abilities. Newton was very jealous of the man. Leibniz invented calculus, he invented mechanical calculators, he is considered to be the father of the modern day computer, he's going back 500 years ago, and the most brilliant mind of the scientific revolution. The same way they only speak about Newton in terms of scientific terms never exploring and revealing Newton's passion and obsession with biblical codes, and secrets and Kabbalah, and mysticism, same with Leibniz if you study physics and science they all talk about his brilliant contributions to science they ignored his relentless pursuit for answers in mystical wisdom notably Kabbalah and the Zohar. We talked about the royal society last week on sunday how it's one it's still today the most prestigious academy in the world for only the greatest scientists in history. The Royal Society of London elected Leibniz a fellow on 19th of April 1673. According to the Dalle Molle Institute for artificial intelligence commenting upon Leibniz: Leibniz sometimes called the last universal genius, that's how he was viewed to this day. He's the last of the universal geniuses, he invented at least two things that are essential for our modern world. He invented calculus, he invented binary arithmetics based on bits. Binary arithmetics, which he invented around 1679, it's the basis virtually of all computers. "Modern physics, math, engineering, would be unthinkable without Leibniz inventions." This is Leibniz's computer invention from 1694. This is a replica that's why it looks so new, it's in a museum in somewhere in Europe. And caught the first computer. Leibniz wrote: ... it's beneath the the dignity of excellent men to waste their time in calculation when any peasant could do the work just as accurately with the aid of a machine. And that's why he invented it to free people up. Now, the same way if you remember from Sunday, Joseph Raphson and Newton invented their root-finding algorithm at the same time. Newton and Leibniz invented calculus at the same time. And there was a great rivalry between these men. This is an example of the Monolith effect. Why is one person discovering something at the same time to somebody else when you're not you know doing the same work together because there's an opening in the cosmos generated by the presence of the Zohar in Newton's life and Leibniz's life. You begin to see things you've never seen before. And we've all experienced it I mean you know when you take Kabbalah 1 what do we learn the first day? You know, when you study Kabbalah, you can have a set of keys right in front you know on your desk you're looking all over and you can't see it. It the Light of the keys is going into your mind it's going into your brain yet there's something in your consciousness not allowing you to see it. It's the same thing with mathematical truth discovery, why wasn't the train invented a thousand years ago? All the raw building blocks and materials are here. Electricity has always been here, the way to make a steam engine all the knowledge is here. Because we didn't see it. There was a curtain in our consciousness and so the simplest way, you know to explain, the Monolith effect, it takes down the curtain. So you can see what you didn't see before. The Kabbalah was extremely influential on Leibniz. My colleague Professor Allison Coudert has done very detailed work in showing specifically how all of Leibniz's major contributions to European thought including the monads and including his theodicy and including all kinds of other areas. Were all heavily influenced by the Kabbalah. Leibniz himself said: and they only discovered this in the last you know 30 40 years, maybe even less, that you know Leibniz's role in Kabbalah. He wrote: It appears that the Kabbalah is a more lofty metaphysics which divested of its covering of words reveals certain very splendid matters. Leibniz wrote that he had plans for a learned society, a new world which would combine the wisdom of Kabbalah, calculus, mysticism, and mechanics. He has already envisioning a world of quantum physics, the world we have today, a world of mathematics where we can have new inventions, and the world of Kabbalah where there'll be a spiritual metaphysical true true undertone, under learning permeating all levels of society. Meet Mercury Van Helmont. His father was a great scientist he was the son of, I forgot his name, but Van Halen himself was a physician, a chemist, and a scientific inventor. Meet Dr. Allison Coudert professor at University of California Davis She's one of the few who went into those hidden manuscripts of Leibniz we already met Matt Goldish, Dr Matt Goldish, who went into the hidden manuscripts of Newton, and so she wrote a number of books on the topic: Trying to show how kabbalistic and other philosophical, religious, even magical points of view influence science, is something that I think scientists themselves find it very hard to accept I think it's getting much better. But I had this experience when I was at the ins lucky enough to be at the institute of advanced study in 2020 and I gave a lecture on Leibniz and the Kabbalah and I suggested that Francis Mercury Von Helmont actually was a friend and influenced him and Morton White who was a very distinguished philosopher got up and and almost turned red and said this cannot be someone of the caliber of Leibniz could not possibly have been influenced by someone like that. So, what she's saying is that because Ben Helmond was known to be deeply involved in the wisdom of Kabbalah the mainstream scientific community at that time didn't want to have anything to do with it. And this modern day scholarship spoke about back in 2020 couldn't believe that Mercury Van Halen would even know a man like Leibniz that's like you know one of the a Kabbalah teacher hanging out with Einstein they wouldn't believe it. but if you look at what Gottfried Wilhelm and Leibniz said about Mercury Van Helmont when he die die on his towhen he wrote his obituary on his behalf "If he had lived among the Greeks, he would now be numbered among the stars." That's how brilliant he was. In Allison Coudert's book Leibniz and the Kabbalah Leibniz wrote: "I marvel at the genius of Helmont." "I have learned many things from this man ... "I have observed not the traces but the every essence of the ancient first philosophy of Pythagoras, of Plato and the Kabbalah." So much for thinking Leibniz and Van Helmont never hung around together. Leibniz and Van Helmont wrote their view on some of the secrets about creation. Specifically they wrote and Allison Coudert reports this in her book: "Creation is a process which began with thoughts in God's mind." "And it ended with the articulation of these thoughts." So first there's a thought in God's mind to create the Cosmos, and then He spoke by articulating those thoughts manifesting consciousness through spoken word and that is what brought the Cosmos into existence. Consciousness materializing the cosmos through spoken word. This is why kabbalistically the Torah, if you look at Genesis the opening chapter it says God said ten times, God said meaning guards articulating but why ten times? Because it's a reference to the 10 dimensions, The 10 Spherot this is an example of a code in the old testament a code in the Torah, that if you don't understand Kabbalah you don't even bother to count, how many times does it say God said 10 times in Genesis? and why does it say God said 10 times? because that is a secret, which we'll explore more detail later in another class, it's a secret for the 10 dimensions that God uttered into existence. Leibniz as we'll see also in a later Class, Leibniz and Van Helmont by speaking about consciousness and the role of creation in the formation of atoms they're already anticipating 20th century quantum Physics. Leibniz and Van Helmont together re-combined the word the opening word in the Torah scroll, in the Old Testament, in Genesis the word, the phrase in the beginning, which is the word Bereishit in Hebrew they changed it watch closely the four letter, first four letters spell Beresh which means in the head. This is them doing their Kabbalah work realizing creation was in the head the mind of God. So they're thinking like Lurionic kabbalists. and Zohar kabbalists. Now according to Mercury Van Helmont, Hebrew was nature's divine alphabet. There were all these other alphabets in language but there was one alphabet that was Divine that belonged to all people and all of nature and he was convinced it was Hebrew and he looked at Hebrew he didn't have the language to say what I'm going to say now, but he looked at Hebrew as the DNA the building blocks of this world. "He said the letters are the intermediaries between thoughts and things." "The moment of thought is expressed in words according to Van Helmont it assumes some kind of physical existence." So speaking a word brings the essence of that what you're speaking about into existence which is why we have to watch what we say we learn from Kabbalah and I quoted it today on a post on facebook we should be more concerned with what comes out of our mouth than what goes in our mouth. Because we are constantly creating energy forces they say everywhere we speak creates an angel. And an angel is not you know some cherub with wings, it's an energy force. And when you're speaking negative, and judging people, and slandering people you're creating angels of negativity influences, that's why you bite your tongue, that's why your foot you slam the brakes on by accident, you step in the gas pedal and you go through the stop sign or you accidentally stub your toe it's those forces pushing you to make those mistakes. It's those forces that block you from seeing the keys on your desk when you're looking for them. Whenever something goes wrong inexplicably it's the accumulation of those negative words that we have spoken by the same token. When you speak praise of others, when you speak to Zohar, when you compliment people, encourage people, when you share a simple principle of Kabbalah with somebody else, you're now creating positive angels, positive bottles of energy waves of energy that now suddenly you notice you wake up in the morning you feel amazing! yesterday I felt like crap today I feel like a million dollars. There's an extra spring in your step you feel you can do no wrong. It's a day where everything is going right it's because those positive influences that you created through your spoken word are now activating in your life. So according to Van Helmont: "Language is the bridge between mind and matter." And not just the language itself but the actual letters. Which is why we scan the Zohar, read the Zohar, that's why there are names of God because the shapes and patterns of those letters the bridge Kabbalist Rav Berg called them Nano Robots, in his book Nano. There the only way you can access true reality, you can't get to the spiritual realm the metaphysical realm truly I think spiritual why? Because it okay, the true reality because that gives you the ability to access it, and activate those powers in this world. There's no way to bridge it without the letters. So and the reason I like saying spirituality, because someone made a comment said: I know you don't like that word here's why, I learned this from the Rav: when you talk about your spiritual life, you're implying you have two aspects to your life, a physical life where you can behave as you want, and you have a spiritual life where you're going to be more spiritual. Oh, it makes it sound like it's about morals and ethics. There's only one life. And we it's not about being spiritual it's about being connected to truth to energy to Light. What you don't want light in your physical part of your life? You only want Light in the spiritual part of your life? So the Rav never liked making that separation because now it's creating separation instead of realizing Light permeates all existence, and we want to now I’ll use the word spiritualize matter, spiritualize the mundane world. Spiritualize the one percent things we do. Not create a separation. The Rav used to get mad at me my teacher Rav Berg, when I would say: Rav you are you talking to me about the 1% or from the 99% level? It's all one! Stop thinking that way! Which leads to the origin of the word abracadabra why is this word? you know been so prevalent among kids and people throughout history, Abracadabra. It's a Kabbalistic Aramaic word that means: I create as I speak. It's been prevalent for so many centuries because just saying it our soul, our true essence, knows the power of what that word means. So there's a little bit of truth resonating in us we know we know I guess on a subconscious level that our words are creating negative angels or positive angels, and our reality through the words we speak. through the consciousness that we wrap up in our words, and transmit out to other people and this world. So God's consciousness created reality according to Van Helmont and Leibniz and we channel those divine thoughts, because God's thought is everywhere, and that's the idea is to use God's thoughts, energy, wisdom, the blueprint for creation, the blueprint for paradise, to channel that blueprint of paradise through us so we can build paradise in this world. So like we we become the words and letters of God. So God's thought is permeating this world we're supposed to channel that blueprint because God is broadcasting a blueprint, make no mistake that's the only thing being broadcast into this world to God's thought is the blueprint, the instructions to create paradise. Now, we're supposed to channel that thought and become the letters and words that manifest it through our actions in this world. So what's the problem? There's a second voice in our head. That second voice is the opponent. It's a different frequency of consciousness it's a different voice. And that voice tells us to be reactive, and then we become robotic, and rash, and regretful, and we wind up with the ruinous existence because we're listening to that voice we're no longer channeling the voice of creation the thought of creation, which is what our own human soul is all about. When I say human soul means that's who we are. When you shut down that second voice using the tools of Kabbalah, because you can't do without tools, then you have a rewarding resplendent, rich, rapturous, and regenerating existence. that will be paradise. Shakespeare and Kabbalah Dame Francis Amelia Yates was a great English Historian at the Warburg Institute. She wrote: It would seem from the Merchant of Venice, one of Shakespeare's great plays, that Shakespeare found the Christian kabbalah of the Friar of Venice congenial." So who is the Friar of Venice? His name was Francesco Giorgi lived in 1466 born passed on 1540 what Francis Yates is trying to say with that statement is that first of all Francesco Georgie was a known renowned Kabbalist, Christian Kabbalist. Christian kabbalist means they're students of Kabbalah. They're not true kabbalists per se but that's just the term they use and Francis yet is trying to tell us that Shakespeare was influenced by the Kabbalistic wisdom of Francesco Giorgi. Okay, this is an article by Francis Yates if anybody wants to go it's na academic paper a scholarly paper if you're into that you can read more detail about Shakespeare and Christian Kabbalah and Francisco Georgie this Christian Kabbalist Friar and Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. In the book Shakespeare and Kabbalah it's written: Kabbalah inspired much of the romantic poetry in the Merchant of Venice, and Shakespeare artistically wove subtle kabbalistic embellishments into the multi-stranded tapestry of Shakespeare's complex drama. So what I'm just trying to show you here without getting into a Shakespearean lecture, is that Shakespeare and the people of that era and other poets and writers were all just like the physicists and scientists were up to their ears in Kabbalah, so were the literary community. In fact we just learned about Dr. John Dee, right? John Dee he was the model some scholars are suggesting for the character of Prospero in Shakespeare's play the Tempest. The Royal Society of London was founded in 1660. Only 11 years after the beheading of King Charles the first, as we said the royal society the most prestigious academy, to this day. The greatest science scientists in history from Newton to Einstein, to Hawking have to be elected as members into the Royal Society you have to be on their level. John Byrom. Was a member of the Royal Society while Sir Isaac Newton was president Now follow this one carefully this one personally I just think it's so freaking cool and I wish there was even more research and maybe it will show up. John Byrom moved about in very influential social and intellectual circles in London and elsewhere. Modern research has revealed him to be something of a man of mystery. John Byrom who invented shorthand these are his actual notes John Byrom who invented shorthand wrote something cryptic in his journal: Byrom wrote about other charter members of the Royal Society who attended his secret meetings and according to Pau Monod, Hepburn Professor of History at Middlebury College, those secret meetings were called: the Kabbalah Club. This was early on in the years of the Royal Society. Where only the most brilliant scientific minds were elected to become charter members. Byrom attended these secret meetings from 1723 until around 1730. They met at the Sun Tavern in Saint Paul's Churchyard. Saint Paul's Cathedral. Members of the Kabbalah club included Sir Hans Sloan, who is the Royal Physician, and the mathematician and astronomer modern folks and about ten others who are the most profound mystics the most profound physicist of that era. All the members of the Kabbalah Club were fellows of the Royal Society. The Kabbalah Club discussed Kabbalah including, because we see in his journals, the miracles which Moses wrought in Egypt. Meet Sir Christopher Wren. He's one of the founding members of the Royal Society. In fact after one of his lectures that's when I think it was 12 of these physicists scientists decided to create the Royal Society in the first place. Christopher Wren is one of the DNA seed levels of the Royal Society. He also served as the president from the year 1680 to 1682. Newton also served as a president. Sir Christopher Wren was one of the most highly acclaimed english architects in history they say that to this very day. is that that's what's on wikipedia and other sources. He was also an astronomer, geometer, and a mathematician physicist. One of his greatest if not the greatest architectural achievements was the building of Saint Paul's Cathedral. Wren's design for the new Saint Paul's also attempted to act as a resurrected version of Solomon's Temple. The Temple that stood in Jerusalem. The symbols sorry the symbolism of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life was studied and applied Steve Padget - Associate Professor - University of Kansas Architecture and Urban planning. It was also applied the Kabbalah Tree of Life to the city plan as well, the rebuilding of London after there was a great fire that burned down the city. what you're seeing is the 10 dimensions the Tree of Life, the 10 Sephirot mapped over the Cathedral. This geometric ghost of the 10 Sephirot was to infuse the Cathedral design and the Cathedral itself with the unique divine energy flowing through the 10 dimensions. So it was like an antenna by modeling that whole floor plan and design of the Cathedral based on the 10 dimensions, which Solomon's temple was designed, you're now channeling into that facility into that vessel, the unique energy aspects that are revealed to each of those particular 10 dimensions. Look how these guys were thinking these are the people who founded the Rural Society! So here we see this is the city of London plan. It's designed, London is designed all along the Thames river, in the in the design structure of the Kabbalah Tree of Life. So the seed of the scientific revolution which was born in the Royal Society, they were up to their freaking ears! In Kabbalah. They were holding secret meetings about kabbalah. They were meeting in a tavern and discoursing about Kabbalah. Sulzbach Rosenberg Germany in Bavaria. this is a statue a monument of Knorr Von Rosenroth. a very famous Christian Kabbalist who ran in the circles of the scientists of the revolution. He translated the Zohar into latin and called it Kabbalah denudata. In the book by Allison Coudert Leibniz and the Kabbalah We learn: In 1668 Leibniz spent over a month with Knorr Von Rosenroth learning Kabbalah. So, first you have Leibniz with Van Helmont and now you have Leibniz with Knorr von Rosenroth. Now remember Knorr von Rosenroth is a Kabbalist, a Christian Kabbalist, he's not a scientist. So Leibniz was not there to discourse on mathematics and physics. Leibniz met Knorr von Rosenroth through Mercury Van Helmont. Rosenroth and Van Helmont were adding in at that time they were editing the Kabbalah Denudata. and they spelled Zohar with an s Sohar in Latin. This is the book that Newton eventually received. I showed you that book in our previous class Archived at Trinity College in Cambridge if you remember one of the pages was actually bent over dog-eared by Newton himself. So you see, Leibniz and Newton the two greatest minds of the scientific revolution interconnected with Von Rosenroth and Van Helmont. And what really excited these men this is key Kabbalah specifically the Kabbalah the Zohar as understood and interpreted and revealed by Rabbi Isaac Laurier, it's called Lyrionic Kabbalah. He lived in the 1500s Rabbi Isaac Laurier. He's the one who decoded the Zohar and made it understandable for the masses before Luriana Kabbalah, before Isaac Laurier, they didn't really grasp it not the masses just the lineage of Kabbalists understood the Zohar. When Isaac Laurier came along it was to move the world to the next level of evolution. And so Lurianic Kabbalah which is the decoding of the Zohar, is what spread to the physicists and scientists, philosophers, of the scientific revolution 16th, 17th century right after Isaac Laurier wrote, you know revealed, his teachings the next century it spread and that was the engine that drove the scientific revolution and Newton and Leibniz could read it because Knorr von Rosenroth and Van Helmont translated the Zohar into Latin. Kabbalah Denudata. And we're not even talking about the Monolith effect at this point. If you take into account that you know that 99% reality Monolith effect and you combine it with just them, you know, the 1% studying the Zohar text themselves right Isaac Newton seeing that it says in the Zohar white light contains all the colors of the rainbow. That's a black and white you know a piece of wisdom he takes he shines a light through a prism and now who's credited to this day were discovering that white light contains the seven colors. That's one of his great discoveries along with gravity. And along with the law of you know repulsion and attraction. It's in his Zohar. His Zohar you can look in his Zohar if you get a copy of it from Trinity College it's there in their Latin version. So when you combine that with the Monolith effect that just by being in the presence of light the darkness diminishes within your consciousness you see more, you hear more. They loved Kabbalah oh let me back up, they were enamored with Luriana Kabbalah and the Zohar because they gave you an opportunity to repair and restore the world. To correct the world. Because in traditional Christianity and in the literal version of the Old Testament people thought they're going to be damned into hell for eternity. and yet along comes the Zohar it says: What are you crazy? It's better if you don't breathe another breath than if you take the bible literally. By the way the early church father said the same thing. Church father Origin we lived up just a couple hundred years after Jesus said if you take the bible literally I'm quoting: "You're an idiot." So the Zohar comes along, Lurianic Kabbalah comes along, and says we're here to repair the world, to restore paradise. Because what we've done is we've hung up curtains the Zohar calls that klipot, or the singular klipa which means like a hard shell, concealing a nut there's a hard curtain blocking out the Light. a blackout curtain. and you've got to rip that blackout curtain down to reveal the Light that never left. We're not doomed to live eternity into hell. Everybody can repair their own negative deeds. Their own negative actions in fact that is the meaning of life. We're supposed to fall, we're supposed to make mistakes, we're supposed to erect these curtains, so that we can recreate paradise by then tearing them back down and transforming ourselves. It's a hopeful, positive, exciting, thrilling, motivating reason to freaking change. like the Rav Berg always taught me why do I want to change? I like being lazy. I if robbing banks you know worked, my teacher told me I'd be robbing banks all day long. I don't rob banks I don't pickpocket because it doesn't work. It gives you a spark of light and then boom another curtain goes up. So it doesn't work instead instead of chasing after we said it last class money, and the Light, and love, and success, no stop chasing after money, stop chasing after love, stop chasing after your soul mate stop chasing after the Light. They're all here. If you tear down the curtain they'll come into your life. We create the curtains to our negative actions. So you'll be motivated to repair those negative impulses within you that make us do negative things in order to tear down the curtain. Because then you remove time and then your soul mate, and the money, and the success, and the health, it'll come to you. If it's not coming it's because the curtain is still blocking it. What a radical way of thinking! And because these men began to think differently that's what I loved Kabbalah, and suddenly they started seeing things in the world in terms of the laws of nature. Henry Moore was a teacher of Newton when Newton was very young. According to Henry Moore in the book Henry Moore and the scientific Revolution, Pythagoras spoke the mystical language of ancient Judaic philosophy So that's, you know, I don't get confusing but let's look at what the great physicists and philosophers of 500 years ago thought about the great minds who lived 2500 years ago. Right, 2000 years before you know Newton, 2000 years before Leibniz, 2000 years before Henry Moore. They were they were talking like we're talking now. They knew believed Pythagoras spoke the Mystical Language of ancient Judaic philosophy. 2- Pythagoras's teachings incorporated the secrets of Moses's true philosophy which was Kabbalism. Newton believed that, Henry Moore believed that. All these men at that Royal Society in the Kabbalah club, that was their belief. And they went through the Bible, they went through the Old Testament, the New Testament all the mystical writings, the same way they went through the world of science digging up those truths. They applied their genius to find out the truth of what happened in history as well with Kabbalah. The path the Pythagor the pythagor I'm tongue tied the Pythagorean system was identical to Ancient Judaic Kabbalistic wisdom. Through Pythagoras the Judaic Mystical Scientific Wisdom was passed to the ancient greeks: Plato, Socrates, Aristotle becoming the foundation stone of greek philosophy. So Pythagoras was versed in Kabbalah there's a tradition that says he was circumcised I think at age 22 if I'm not mistaken to be able to enter into this wisdom to truly understand it and through Pythagoras this is how the greeks got their wisdom. as we discussed in the last class, I forget who said it, but one of the physicists said that the greeks predated their wisdom. So not to cover up the fact that they got it from the Kabbalists. The class is over we're going to keep going we're already past the question and answer time I hope you don't mind sticking around I'm going to keep on going. We are 15 minutes past the end of the class but let's keep going. These are very very major figures these are major figures. Whose contributions to science and to general thought in the 17th century are very essential. So these men what they were ultimately doing. Ultimately! They were trying to hunt down what's known as the ancient Prisca Theologia everybody said to yourselves: Prisca Theologia. The quest for the Prisca Theologia occupied the minds of Newton, Leibniz, Van Helmont, Von Rosenroth, the people of the who were in the Kabbalah club at the Royal Society What is the Prisca Theologia? The Prisca Theologia Is the original religion they believed that was passed down by God to either Moses or Adam. Allison Coudert, she writes that in her book Leibniz and Kabbalah. If we could find this Prisca Theologia, she writes, this original doctrine then everybody could agree to it and we would have peace. Meaning, these great minds of the scientific revolution believed the Prisca Theologian means any in English the primordial wisdom Prisca Theologia. The primordial original wisdom. This was given to Moses they believed and its power was its ability to unify Christianity, Judaism and Islam. And they believe the only reason there was war between the religions and even war within Christianity and Judaism with their own sex the Prisca Theologia would remove all the barriers because it would reveal all the secrets. All the secrets profound secrets. that underlie Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. In the book Leibniz and Kabbalah, Mercury Van Helmont and knorr Von Rosenroth quote: "They were certain that they could free Christianity from the corruptions accumulated over centuries by rediscovering this Prisca Theologia imparted by God orally through spoken word to Moses on Mount Sinai." Kabbalistic writings in their mind represented the first and purest source of that divine knowledge that's why they gravitated relentlessly to Kabbalah. "The wisdom of Kabbalah in their minds offered nothing less than a blueprint of utopia." "Kabbalah deserves a place it has never received in the histories of western scientific and cultural developments." According to Allison Coudert in another book she wrote the impact of the Kabbalah in the 17th century. "...this very progressive religious view she writes, that you had to work with God to make the world a better place it contributed to all kinds of inventions." forget the fancy inventions of light that the color the the color spectrum and lot of the seat of the modern day computer, even household inventions. "Van Helmont went to Hanover and worked with Leibniz on making things like a better wheelbarrow, better cooking pots, and she's writing, and my favorite, they invented back then shoes with springs for fast getaways." In an interview Allison Coudert said: "I kid you not, that's one of the things they invented, and then I went into a sneaker store about 20 years ago." and there they are nike shocks shoes with springs. they sought 500 years before nike. So Godfrey Leibniz summed it up by saying you know what "true physics may be tapped from the source of divine perfection." There's no there's no dichotomy between the physical laws and spiritual laws. The physics does come from the source of divine Light. He says: "... the knowledge of God is no less the principle of science than his essence and will are the principle of beings..." got to read that a few times. So the greatest minds of the scientific revolution it's like pop culture Kabbalah today. You hear about all the people of the last 20 years who studied Kabbalah. Madonna, Roseanne, Barbara Streisand, Jeff Goldblum, I can go on and on and on and on Donald Trump had a Zohar, Obama had a Zohar I gave a Zohar to Bill Clinton, I had two meetings with Bill Clinton on the Zohar, they don't talk about today about you know, the impact they had on people's lives, but back then there was no internet no television, the greatest minds of pop culture science were up to their ears and Kabbalah. but their pursuit was deadly, apocalyptically serious. And what I have just shown you is the tip of the iceberg. So, obviously we have to move on to other topics but this is the tip of the iceberg the influence Kabbalah had in the 16th and 17th century and 2500 years ago. in the lives of Plato and Pythagoras. In closing DrAllison Coudert: Kabbalah is a way to try to explain the great existential questions of our lives, you know, why are we here? How did the world come into being? is there a creator? What are we expected to do? What is our role? I mean this is the kind of I think information that Francis Mercury Van Helmont and Leibniz looked for and found answers in kabbalistic thought. That's our class for next week: Zohar and science pre 20th century.
