Gate 150, Chapter 10 – The Natural Sciences and the Domain of the Spheres
Part 1 – A review of the relationship of the natural sciences and torah and kabbalah. For Rabbi Hayim they are all one and the same.
The Galgalim are the domain of the heavens, and are not the topic of this chapter.
This chapter deals with our physical universe, which is comprised of Tzurah and Homer, or Force and Form, better known as body and soul. Everything has a level of soul to it.
First creation is the Hiyuli, the prima-matter, the fifth element above the form of plasma, the intermediate stage between what we call the physical and the spiritual.
The Domem – the inanimate world, elemental forms, the difference between atoms and molecules, the secret of gravity, the lack of will or desire.
The Tzomahat – the “plant” world, the domain that seeks to provide sustenance, growth and procreation, the level that forms the function of the reception and processing of nourishment. This level is the beginning of soul consciousness, as we know it, and might very well be what is referred to in oriental medicine as the Qi.
