METAPHYSICS OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
PHILOSOPHY OF DAVID BIRNBAUM
a) PHYSICS will not solve PHYSICS without METAPHYSICS….and

This is wrong.
All fields are interconnected – meaning the hard and soft sciences – and it will frankly require integrating multiple fields to penetrate truly deeply into the

The concepts necessary to get us to the core of cosmic code are too abstract for METAPHYSICS alone (whether from 5,000 years ago or contemporary). [Among other thinkers, the legendary theologian Rav Kook (b. 1865), Chief Rabbi of Palestine from 1921-1935, understood and followed-through on this.]
