Israel & Humanity – the Quest for Universal Torah, by R. Elijah Benamozegh
Lesson 12 – Man in Partnership with God
Creation is an ongoing process. Humanity contributes to the work.
Humanity, through Adam was given dominion over the face of the Earth, which does not include other worlds.
Dominion means to live in harmony with nature, and to nurture it respectfully.
Relationship of humanity to other species.
How to build a world: Sefer Yetzirah or DNA genetic building blocks.
Torah is on Earth, an therefore must be interpreted practically, and not theoretically.
Torah, God, humanity, nature and the Dao, if Maimonides can quote Aristotle, we can quote Lao Tzu.
The wonders and blessings of science and technology, how they are the Will of God, allowing human ingenuity to discover the wonders of creation.
Adam, humanity and Israel, priesthood to the planet, to serve and to protect.
