Re: Kabbalah
In Response To: Kabbalah ()

Charles, my understanding is elementary at best. However, I recall that Gardner, cites the qabala is ancient in origin and was preserved as an oral tradition...also that the oral tradition was first written down in the first century AD around the time of the roman destruction of Jerusalem...

see...http://www.campsci.com/iguide/rabbi_shimon_bar_yochai.htm

My understanding of Kabbalah, again quite rudimentary, suggests an ancient wisdom and knowledge of the natural world and the spiritual realm and the relationship of the two. From one perspective, it is at odds with our generally accepted understanding of the history of technogical advancement...

Further, the writing down of this info, the crucifixion and the roman destruction of the temple occurring in such a short burst of time, ....does not seem to be mere coincidence....the "hidden teachings" suggest a station for all mankind, which is not ideal from the perspective of the few who wish to dominate the many...probably pretty good from the perspective of leadership which is passionate about serving the people...but that's a pretty small crowd that does not seem to thrive well in the old/current world order....
