"Scientists have finally discovered what's wrong with the human brain: on the left side, there is nothing right, and on the right side, there is nothing left."
Simple awareness test
and one of the most successful documentaries of all time "What the BLEEP Do We Know?"
demonstrate how little we understand about human awareness and our effect, as observers, on the reality.
We subconsciously change our perception of the outside world and transmit it to ourselves "fixed up" to fit our rationale and logic. Only that which fits with what we already know can pass through. If it is unfamiliar to us, then it doesn't exist, as far as we're concerned. As far as human intellect goes, we have no way of obtaining reliable information about the world because neither our senses nor our intellect are reliable.
Worldly approach to Godliness is solely according to the way it reveals itself in nature (in Creation) with its boundaries and structural rules. That's why the human reason always ends at the border of our skull. And that's exactly where faith starts. The blind faith displayed by the prophet in his God, and our belief in the prophet.
Maimonides wrote "God makes man prophesy," which is simply incredible and definitely the most amazing phenomenon of all.
It is the encounter between the infinite and the finite, between Chaos and Order, between God's wisdom and a man's intellect.
The light of prophecy shines only on the one who blocks out the manifestations of his intellect and emotions. That's why to believe in the prophet our intellect also has to be put in its place. It is not allowed to negate illogical information, or to bend it to fit the human logic - not even Torah logic. And in order not to leave any room for error, the Maimonides emphasizes: "Belief in the prophet precedes belief in the Torah, for if there is no prophet, there is no Torah."
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, the true prophet of this generation, announced that The Messiah is here and has already been revealed, and there's a set table with all the components of Redemption, but ...
Many years ago, the students of the first Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Alter Rebbe, asked him, "Rebbe, we pray, we ask, we beg God to bring the Messiah - why hasn't he arrived yet?"
The Alter Rebbe looked up from his holy books and shook his head: "Perhaps the Messiah which you are waiting for is not the one which God wants to bring."
We think, read and listen in pictures. Have you ever seen a movie or a photograph after reading a book (or hearing the story ) and they don't match in your mind? Similarly, when our picture of Messiah's coming and unfolding Redemption does not match that of the prophet, we choose what's familiar, since our brain can only register what we already know.
Considering none of us saw what The Messianic Era looks like, as far as our intellect and awareness go, Redemption is not even part of our reality. And if it is - it's on our terms, not God's. The Lubavitcher Rebbe said that we need to "open our eyes", to teach and explain it to ourselves to make our reality Godly.
The Divine purpose of such concealment is a test of faith and trust in a prophet and his teachings. Faith and trust beyond reason. Holy nonsense (folly of holiness). It is through this window that all the "non - perceivable" reality comes through the way it truly is.
So the only way out of jail, which is known as the skull, is to open the human experience to infinite horizons. Simply believe and trust in the prophet with limitless, uncompromising faith. No censoring, processing, renovations or erasures.
