in response to reader comment: Speaking of being a majnun and "understand what"?

If you are tired of repeating yourself why don't you just stop? You don't have to keep beating a dead horse do you? Or is it that you just can't stand that some people don't happen to agree with you?

Hey Helene, I don't speak Greek. That language is as foreign to me as the back side of the moon. As is Greek Thinking. Where did they get the idea that their so called "Philosophy" had anything to do with the Torah? Talking with a Greek is like talking to a wall. They never got it and they never will.

As far as "MY" "Allah" is concerned HA! where did you get the idea that I believe in Allah? I didn't say that. YOU DID and you have been trying to paint me with your tainted brush ever since I got here. What's your beef any way?

Sorry Jack, but if you must know The "HOLY NAME" is not a name at all like James or Johh or Aristotle or (haha) Zeus. In truth, it is a symbolic formulation expressing the relationship between the alternating states of matter and energy over time. I really can't answer your question without getting into a language that you would not be familiar with involving concepts that would be beyond your experience. In short, your question has an answer but it cannot be answered within the limited language capacities of my computer or your own knowledge.

How would I say it really? Well you might consider Einstein's famous equation. It is basically a restatement of the "NAME" using a different symbol system. How else do you explain the fact that it was the Jews who opened for us the secrets of the atom? Nobody else could have done it because everybody else was operating from a false premise to begin with. So much for your Helenes.

As I said, the "HOLY NAME" is a symbolic formulation which if you understand it provides a gateway for the mind to transcend the ordinary limitations of the ego intellect and enter into a realm of infinite possibility where you might be able to view the foundations of the universe. It's all there right before your eyes as if you were witnessing the first act of creation. Most of the time all I can do is sit in wonder at it. The experience is genuinely mind boggleing the first time but after a while you get used to the spectacle and can begin to ask yourself questions about what you are seeing. That's where the work really begins. How to connect the subjective experience you are having to the real world around you. How can you share the experience with others so that they experience the same thing. That's where you have to get really creative. Often you are forced to create a whole new paradigm of language.

In the beginning G-d created the heavens and the earth:"Bereshit Barah Elohim et ha Shamaim ve et ha Aretz" The key word here is "BARAH" which you have translated as "created" but " BARAH" does not really mean "created". It means something more like "Caused to become manifest" We see the universe and everything in it as an expression of G-ds beingness

The Hebrew expression "yod- heh-vav-heh" or YHVH as reprented in english is something like this. "YH" the being or essense of G-d and the material manifestation of that beingness "VH" Energy and matter. And so we have the whole universe

Now, if I have bent your mind enough for the nonce prehaps you will allow me to get some sleep. I'm very tired.
