Unified Field Theory… and Practice

Albert Einstein had a lifelong quest – to develop a unified field theory – the theory that would describe as a single field gravity and electromagnetism (just as Maxwell unified electric and magnetic fields in a single electromagnetic field). Alas, Einstein did not succeed in this quest. Today, the goal is even more ambitious – to unify all four known fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak forces in a single model, the Theory of Everything. If the hypothetical fifth force will be confirmed, it will also need to be included in the Theory of Everything. While theoretical physicists around the world are busy working our various approaches to such Theory of Everything (which include inter alia string theory, loop quantum gravity, etc.), Jews around the world will be practicing this unification during [...]

Paradox of the Red Heifer

Chukat In the previous post, Tumah and Taharah, we discussed the following ideas: Tumah (impurity) and taharah (purity) are strictly spiritual concepts; Spiritual concepts are points in a conceptual space, which is called in mathematics a "fiber bundle" on the fifth "moral" dimension defined in Sefer Yetzira (in addition to four dimensions of spacetime); Tumah and taharah are mirror reflections of each other as if tumah was an "antiparticle" of taharah; Life is viewed as the soul's existence within the body, and, conversely, the soul's separation from the body causes cessation of life; Tumah is usually associated with death or diminution of life. The wisest of all man, King Salomon, could not fathom the paradox of Parah Adumah (the Red Heifer): Why does the person who administers the ritual of purification become tomei (spiritually impure) himself? It [...]
