The Hidden Laws Between Us
Everyone knows that we are affected by the laws of nature. For example, take the law of gravity. It is invisible and imperceptible, but it is always affecting us. It's simply a part of our lives, whether we notice it or not. And the same can be said about all other physical laws.

Moreover, there's been a lot of talk about other kinds of forces acting in the world, such as the power of thought and intention. Many scientists and philosophers are noticing that these non-physical forces also follow specific laws, and that thinking in a certain way has specific effects on one's life and well-being.

But what many people don't realize is that our relationships in the social realm are also affected by permanent and absolute natural laws. Just like the invisible laws of gravity and electromagnetism are always affecting our bodies, there are invisible laws of Nature that constantly affect our human interactions.

What would happen if we tried to ignore the law of gravity and jumped off a cliff? Something not very pretty. All our problems in life are caused by the fact that we unknowingly transgress natural laws of a higher order. Hence, we could avoid most problems if we learned about the higher laws of Nature, the invisible forces that regulate our human relationships.

Since we do not know the laws of Nature that regulate human relationships, we think that we can do as we please in this realm. We invent our own rules of relating to each other and establish arbitrary education systems, social institutions and systems of government. But in fact, for all these systems to function flawlessly and to our benefit, we have to study the natural laws of the social realm and build our systems accordingly.

Presently we don't feel these laws, and therefore we think that our lives are progressing from one coincidence to another. But if we felt the forces of Nature that constantly drive us toward a single, exalted goal, we would know that nothing is coincidental and that our lives are systematically moving toward Nature's goal. This goal is described by the great Kabbalist of the 20th century, Baal HaSulam, as "The revelation of His Godliness to His creatures in this world."
What makes one want to act in harmony with the hidden laws of Nature?
What do you think about it?

I don't know that much about Kabbala, actually, I hardly know it at all, but your post really makes a lot of sense to me. I absolutely agree that nothing is coincidental - everything that happens to us in life, is the result of our own actions, and the consequences we get are just a reflection of the Universe reacting to what we do. And these consequences are the better and more harmonious when we observe the laws of Nature, instead of making up our own laws and expecting Nature to follow them. Most people do so, in fact, that is why we see so many lives that seem to go nowhere. The laws that govern this Universe are not known to us by default, it takes a lot of effort to find them out. But it is possible to learn them, by study, by observation, by spiritual development and by practising certain techniques. Respectful attitude towards Nature and the Universe is also something that can help very much. And once you find out the laws - start observing them - reach a symbiosis with the Power that governs life - your life gets really interesting!

How fortunate some people are!

I feel gravity and am aware of gravity on a daily hourly by-the-minute basis! I suspect that fibromyalgia sufferres are at least as equally aware of gravity if not acutely aware of subtle changes in air temperature and humidity.....

Vereya,

Your winding road has caught up to you. Maybe retracing the steps would help.

Heck, at a very early age I discovered the mathematics that describe the world of human interactions. I make use of them on a daily basis, many scientists do, and they have yet to disappoint me.

What are the equations describing the Stonewall riots in 1969?

I'd go with the Wiener process or something similar using a poisson distribution thrown in. Depends what you want to know about it really.

I only take advice from people who have favorably impressed me. You haven't, so far, so keep your advice to yourself, please, no matter how wise it might seem to you.
Oh, yes, and another thing!
If you have got nothing to say to the point of discussion, you had better say nothing at all. You personal remarks are of no inerest whatsoever.

Some nistory about Kabbalah.
Abraham lived in Mesopotamia, in the city of Ur of the Chaldees, and as all inhabitants of Mesopotamia, he worshiped the sun, the moon, the stones, and the trees. But one day he began wondering: "How was the world created? Why does everything 'spin' around us? What generates the flow of life?"... Read more about it:
