DAVID BIRNBAUM METAPHYSICS
DAVID BIRNBAUM PHILOSOPHY
But why enter this terrain at all?
Why not just let matters rest with the original
Quest for Potential∞?
Why enter this MALE-FEMALE zone, which, like a mythical siren, always seems to pull sundry metaphysics over-the-millennia out into some sort of philosophical ‘la-la land’?
We only go here because we are inexorably led here by the logical imperatives of our schema.
Quest for Potential∞ cannot forever stand alone as a UNITARY DYNAMIC – while “everything else under-the-sun” has polarities and dualities.
Aside from that, male-female, across the stratum of species, pervades our planet.
Beyond that, once we operate under the self-articulated
premise that there are direct parallels between
METAPHYSICAL realms and REALITY realms, and
once we see a tantalizing parallel, we are motivated
to articulate it.
However, overriding all-of-the-above is the fascinating proposition that GENDERS are the embodiment of
>> morphed-METAPHYSICAL POTENTIALS << – or, as RASHI might say, the embodiment of >> morphed ANGELS <<
The implications – stretching eternally in both directions in time – give one pause for awe.
It turns out that possibly the most daring components of our multi-layered hypothesis, i.e. the core proposition of Potential with the follow-through hypothesis of its two key sub-Potentials – are the components most directly tethered in the Torah.
Tethering the most daring parts, on some level anchors the entire metaphysics.
