“Constant Simplicity” p:31/23

AyinBase / Ayin Beis with R' Paltiel, Shvat 5776 

Page 31 of pamphlet – (approaching the middle of the page. Line starts: 'ha-hasagah...'). Page 23 of the book. For text see below.

Questions and comments:

The principle of comprehension/hasagah as it is practiced from the ohr/light perspective always remains 'based on its source' and thus it retains the element of pshitus/simplicity.

Comprehension implies something reached and grasped. Something without identifiable limits cannot be grasped. Chochmah/wisdom knows all, but it cannot be grasped.

Worldly understanding is often based on a 'logical imperative'. It is convincing and cannot be refuted. But it is an imperative only due to the force of logic. It is not an imperative on the level of pshitus/simplicity.
