Kabbalah and Philosophy: An Explosion of Opposites

Today really cool/hot http://philosophynow.forumsplace.com/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif topic came up in Kabbalah lessons.
I just have to share this with you.

Today's daily Kabbalah lesson on Kabbalah TV (Kabbalah TV - Bnei Baruch World Center for Kabbalah Studies) featured Rav Michael Laitman, PhD teaching Baal HaSulam's article "The Wisdom of Kabbalah and Philosophy."
Take the opening paragraph of Baal HaSulam's article "The Wisdom of Kabbalah and Philosophy," add some commentary by Rav Michael Laitman, PhD in the daily Kabbalah lesson of Bnei Baruch, and you get an explosion of questions from the students of Bnei Baruch.
The opening paragraph from "The Wisdom of Kabbalah and Philosophy":
"What is Spirituality?
Philosophy has gone through a great deal of trouble to prove that corporeality is the offspring of spirituality and that the soul begets the body. Still, their words are not acceptable to the heart in any manner. Their primary mistake is their erroneous perception of spirituality, that spirituality fathered corporeality, which is certainly a fib."
In this heated lesson, Bnei Baruch students dug into Rav Laitman searching for the best possible answers to how Kabbalah approaches spirituality and how philosophy approaches spirituality (i.e. the limits of everything we can call "philosophy" and the limits of what it can define as "spirituality"). This led into a deep intellectual excavation into the nature of our perception of reality (including heavy emphasis on "What is matter in corporeality?" and "What is matter in spirituality?").
This lesson is recommended for anyone searching for a general definition of philosophy, of everything we can call philosophy, and the limits of philosophy and the limits of our perception of reality in the five senses as explained from a Kabbalists' perspective - "a Kabbalist's perspective" meaning the perspective from a person who has achieved an additional sense with which to perceive deeper layers of reality.

"The Wisdom of Kabbalah and Philosophy" lessons will continue daily, at 10pm EST, on Kabbalah TV, and archived versions will be available for free download at the Kabbalah Media Archive.

Neshama. I notice you seem keen to promote a specific Kabbalah program. Do you have an interest in Kabbalah itself, or the promotional vehicle?
