Have you ever heard of the Superstring Theory? The Superstring Theory is, in essence, a scientific attempt to explain the universe. Scientists today consider the Superstring Theory a leading approach to explaining the inner workings of the universe.
Here’s an interesting fact: The Superstring Theory states that space-time has 10 dimensions, or in other words, the universe is made up of 10 dimensions. Sound familiar?
English Zohar, Chayei Sarah Volume 4 verse 169
אֲמַר לֵיהּ, אֱלִיעֶזֶר בְּרִי, חָמֵית הֲוֵית יַתִּיר מִמַּלְאָכָא קַדִּישָׁא, דְּעַלְמָא בַּעֲשָׂרָה אִתְבְּרֵי, בַּעֲשָׂרָה אִתְנְהֵיג, כָּרְסְיָיא קַדִּישָׁא, בַּעֲשָׂרָה, אוֹרַיְיתָא הוּא בַּעֲשָׂרָה, מַטְלָנוֹי בַּעֲשָׂרָה, עַלְמִין עִלָּאִין בַּעֲשָׂרָה, וְחַד עִלָּאָה עַל כֹּלָּא בְּרִיךְ הוּא.
English translation: He said, Eliezer my son, you have seen more than a holy angel, FOR THE LIGHT OF THE SOUL IS GREATER THAN THE LIGHT OF ANGELS. BECAUSE RABBI ELIEZER EXPLAINED THE SECRET OF THE TEN ONLY BY THE UPPER THREE COLUMNS CHOCHMAH, BINAH AND DA'AT RABBI YOCHANAN BEN ZAKAI IS GOING TO EXPLAIN THE SECRET OF THE TEN ALSO IN THE LOWER SEVEN SFIROT. HE SAYS, The world, MALCHUT, is created by ten, and it is conducted by ten. THIS IS YESOD THAT LEADS MALCHUT CALLED WORLD. The holy throne, NETZACH AND HOD CALLED THE LOWER THRONE, is according to ten. The Torah, THE SECRET OF TIFERET, is by ten. Its traveling, NAMELY GVURAH, is by ten. The supernal worlds, Chesed, which is superior to the lower seven, are by ten. And there is the supernal one above them all, blessed be He, NAMELY KETER, FROM WHICH EVERYTHING IS DRAWN, BOTH THE LIGHT OF CHASSADIM ALLUDED TO IN THE SECRET OF TEN, AND THE LIGHT OF CHOCHMAH.
Over 2,000 years ago, the Zohar was well aware of the 10 dimensions that make up the universe, as we can clearly see here. As science has caught up, a concept that at one time would have boggled people’s minds has become the prevalent explanation for how the universe works. Imagine that.
The ancient book of wisdom that is the Zohar contains numerous examples of how our world operates—written at a time when this knowledge was not common place. In fact, many recent scientific discoveries are contained in the Zohar.
