The Mystical Nature of Light: Divine Paradox of Creation


Avraham Arieh Trugman

The Mystical Nature of Light delves into the mysterious and paradoxical aspects of both physical and spiritual light by tracing its enigmatic appearances in the Torah, as well as modern science’s quest to understand this most fundamental building block of the universe. Jewish sages and mystics perceived in light layer upon layer of paradox which amazingly parallels the revelations of modern physics in their pursuit to understand this mysterious energy. Light serves as a powerful parable for understanding the nature of paradox in general, as well as the relation of God to His creation, and man’s ability to understand his or her own soul.
