Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “Without a scale, there is no movement.”

If there is no hierarchy, nothing can be achieved by moving from one point to another.

When there is a difference, movement makes sense.

When there is no difference, movement does not make sense.

If one goes into it further, one gets into very complex concepts of movement and what movement means.

We would be speaking about the theory of relativity.

In the abstract, when there is no interrelation, movement or size doesn’t make any sense.

Without a scale, there is no movement.

To advance or retreat depends on having a direction—a beginning and an end.
