An introduction into the difference between historical commandments, and later interpretations of what they mean (Philo, Recanati, Ridbaz, Ari'zal). Are the mystical understandings objective or subjective. An understanding into the subjective nature of ideas and opinions about religious beliefs, and their cosmic significance. A criticism of baseless Biblical criticism. A bit of the history of Jewish Law in the Sephardic community, the difference between the rationalist school (prevalent today) and the kabbalistic school (prevalent through most of the few centuries). Ovadiah Yosef and the Ben Ish Hai. Each soul has to observe all the commandments, how the Ari'zal school of thought makes such an impossible task to become possible. The concept of the ibbur gilgul (piggy-back reincarnation). The PaRDe'S of Torah, how the levels are not subjects of study, but rather orientations to the study of all subjects. How personality orients one towards the specific school and path within religion that one chooses, (or better to say, chooses the one). Reference to the schools of Lubavitch and Breslov. The proper attitude towards observance, the difference between obligation and desire, individual verses collective value and benefit.
