DAVID BIRNBAUM METAPHYSICS
DAVID BIRNBAUM PHILOSOPHY
* DIVISION into POLARITIES & DUALITIES *
Polarities and Dualities
as well as assorted complementary
Positives / Negatives,
are the BUILDING BLOCKS
and counter-point balancers
of the cosmic order
(Articulation of this concept – whose core is not original – commenced in God and Evil…. The ‘spin’ may be original, but there is, indeed, voluminous literature on the subject in many cultures and many languages stretching back thousands of years)
NOTES by KHALIL
1 “readily into place” A: In his preamble to Derech Hashem Moshe Chaim Luzatto writes that before a subject such as this can be mastered it must be understood in a most general way first. General principles and overarching themes are to be understood before details are probed. Once the framework of the subject is made clear, one will then be able to place each detail into its proper context automatically, and he will ”delight” in understanding new facts that add texture to the framework. This work – God and Good – is written with this concept in mind.
2 “readily into place” B: The Cosmic Womb of Potential, and particularly the Tool Kit, will elucidate the general principles that are central to the paradigm presented here. The “Master Craftsman” of the cosmos employs a cosmic tool kit. Extraordinary tools open–the–way for a potentially extraordinary construct. Examine the Tool Kit, and you will grasp the dimensions of the cosmic construct.
