in response to reader comment: Mansoor, no end of foolishness

There are seventy two levels of meaning in the Torah as written in Hebrew. NO translation has ever penetrated any more than the first two levels. The Hebrew text has an exoteric meaning and an essoteric meaning, and external meaning and an internal meaning. The gentile world sees only the external meaning and so long as it remains in its ignorance of Hebrew it will continue in ignorance of the meaning of the Torah.

The world about you is not as it seems. Because a plant seems to you to be green doesn't mean that it is green. Green is the only color that is not absorbed by the plant and so it is reflected into your eyes and that is what you see. If you see the truth only in reflections then you cannot see the truth as it is.
