What happened to Isaac Luria in 1572?

While Isaac Luria's literary contribution was extremely minute (he wrote only a few poems), his immaterial fame led to their reverence of his authority. 

Reasonably, Luria, with his doctrine of tzimtzum, can be regarded as the true founder of this panentheistic movement within Judaism. In all probability, Isaac Luria came in contact with David HaKohain Bar Isha, the Tzadokite, after he emigrated to Morocco upon the Spanish expulsion in 1492. Again, Hillel (10 BC-10 CE) was "paired" with Renaissance Man as the founder of a line of Rebbes who led our people until the 15th-Century.

Theoretically, the Age of Discovery (1434–1572) was laid out in Renaissance Man's Thanksgiving Psalms (4QHodayota/4QHodayote) and the War Scroll (4Q491- 11 i). The Age of Discovery started the early 15th-Century, during which Latins (Roman/Arabs) traveled around our realm to feed burgeoning capitalism. In the process, this "new breed" encountered mapped lands previously unknown to them. Sages and translators often "assign" different dates and locations to different accounts of the same chronicled developments, creating multiple "phantom copies" of these events.

That’s not always the case though. For example Hillel’s life parallels the Narrative of Moses for reasons we explored earlier. Notice how Hillel has no title before his name: Hillel in itself is his title, just as figure-heads like Moses, Abraham etc. Some "phantom copies", withal, are often misdated by centuries or even millennia and end up incorporated into the conventional chronology.

The fall of Constantinople led to the Karaite migration of Greek texts to Italy during this Age of Discovery. The German invention of the mechanical movable type that introduced mass communication; permanently altering every swarm. The unrestricted circulation of information generated revolutionary ideas that transcended borders and captured the masses to threatened the powers that be. Self-receptiveness was redefined through proto-nationalism to the detriment of Latin's position as lingua franca.

Did Renaissance Italy come from Haplogroup J2 and Haplogroup R1a/1b?

Francesco Petrarca July 20, 1304 – July 19, 1374) belonged to mtDNA haplogroup J2. Petrarch is credited with initiating Renaissance Italy; as the 1st humanist. One Natufian belonged to the N1b mtDNA haplogroup, and 2 others belonged to Haplogroup J2. 6 subclades of J2 (J-M172), were "a Phoenician signature."

The genetic signature stemmed from a familiar source of related lineages rooted in Israel. The National Geographic related J2 to Jericho, Tel el-Sultan, 8500 BC with unusually high distribution among present-day Jews (30%), Southern Italians (20%), and lower frequencies in Southern Spain (10%). The haplogroup of the Canaanites is J2 which originated in northern Mesopotamia. Fath-Ali Shah Qajar (1772–1834), the 2nd emperor/shah of the Qajar dynasty of Iran belonged to Haplogroup J-M267. Ancient Sumerians concluded that Marsh Arabs have a high concentration of Y-chromosomal Haplogroup J-M267 and mtDNA haplogroup J.

Jebusite names like Adonizedek suggest the Tzadokite Aaronic lineage is an anachronistic interpolation; Aaron was, nonetheless, “the brother” of Moses. J1 (J-M267) places the Y-chromosomal Aaron within sub-haplogroup Z18271, age estimate 2638–3280 years Before Present (YBP).  Approximately 35% to 43% of our men are in the paternal line known as haplogroup J and its sub-haplogroups. This Haplogroup is mainly present in the Middle East, Southern Europe, and Northern Africa. Whereas haplogroup J is the most frequent Arab paternal clade toward the east (Arabian peninsula and Near East). Other less common haplogroups are R1a, R1b, G, I, L and T. E1b1b1a (M78) (formerly E3b1a) is the most widespread though, hands-down.

Some still say the common Levite relative belonged to the haplogroup R1a1, which is typical of Eastern Europeans or West Asians, rather than the Haplogroup J2 of the Cohen modal haplotype. Either way, the geographic source of the Levite founder came from the Fertile Crescent and its likely existence among pre-Diaspora Israelites.

Haplogroup R1a1a (R-M17) is not common ANYMORE in the Middle East but dominant in Eastern Europe. It is present in over half of Ashkenazi Levites, while the rest of our paternal lineage is of apparent Middle Eastern origin. The majority of Samaritans belong to haplogroups J1 and Haplogroup J2, while "The Samaritan M267 lineages differed from the classical Cohen modal haplotype at DYS391, carrying 11 rather than 10 repeats", as well as, have a completely different haplogroup, which should have been "J1" but its E1b1b1a (M78) (formerly E3b1a)

The earliest surviving firearms came from Europe around the 1300s. Civil wars in Spain occurred soon after; deaths of over 37,000 then followed. Then Ferdinand and Isabella institute the Spanish Inquisition and we’re expelled to the Netherlands, Turkey, Arab lands, and Judea; some of us eventually go to South and Central America. However, most of us emigrated to Poland. In later centuries, more than 50% of our population lived in Poland. Many remained in Spain after publicly converting to Christianity, becoming “Cryptos.”

After being expelled from Sicily, as many as 137,000 exiled. Right after, we're expelled from Portugal and from many German cities. Venice established the 1st ghetto in Europe. Many others follow. Talmudic sageship was so respected in ghettos that outstanding (though often poor) sages were highly valued as husbands of the rich. Wealthy wives made it possible for us to devote ourselves to our work.

This attitude provided selection pressure in favor of intellectual aptitude and enhanced social mobility during the Age of Discovery. Gentiles like King Alexander of Poland readmitted to Grand Duchy of Lithuania. We can't forget about when King Sigismund I of Poland abolished the law that required us to wear special clothes. Never forget that the 1st Yiddish book published in Poland during this difficult period.

In the 16th-Century, when ™ spread through Isaac Luria, the title Hasidim also became associated with it. So conduct yourself in the manner of “the Pious” to comprehend this blog better. To all appearances, Moses ben Jacob Cordovero set it off in Safed. Isaac Luria regarded Cordovero as his teacher though. In 1569,  Isaac Luria moved back to Jerusalem, his system met with little results, he chilled in Safed over the previous decades, eventually meeting Moses Cordovero.

Theoretically, Isaac Luria served as a consensus common mechanism of indirect coordination, through the environment, between behaviors. What's left in the atmosphere by his actions stimulated the performance of the next step in ™, by different Jews. Like this blog, subsequent actions build on each other, leading to the emergence of coherent, systematic activity.

While Rabbinism is classically monotheistic and follows in the footsteps of Maimonides (1135–1204), our panentheistic conception of ⬢ can be traditionally found in Cordoverian traditions. This doctrine was "let out of the bag" by Moses ben Jacob Cordovero then Baal Shem Tov (1700–1760) then Dov Ber "the Maggid of Mezeritch", then Rav Mendel "the Maggid of Bar", then most, if not many, Hasidic masters to follow.

Allegedly, Hayyim Vital compiled the vast majority of these oral teachings into writing.
Other disciples, such as Ibn Tebul and Israel Sarug put his teachings into writings as well. Through it all, it's “vital” we remember that ⬢; the Cause of all, is 1. This does not mean 1 as in 1 of a pair, nor 1 like a species (which encompasses many individuals), nor 1 as in an object that is made up of many elements, nor as a single simple object that is eternally divisible. Instead, ⬢ is a unity, unlike any other possible unity.

After the devastation of the Sanhedrin by Theodosius II in 425, there was no more formal ordination in the strict sense. A recognized sage could be called Rab, like the Babylonian Rebbes. The transmission of the Dead Sea Scrolls to disciples remained of tremendous importance, but there was no formal rabbinic qualification as such.

So Moses Cordovero and his swarm decided they would take it up for themselves. The elders in Jerusalem weren't too crazy about it though. Isaac Luria, aka Ha-Ari, explained the significance of many of our observances without the philosophical and theological contradictions that we glossed over before, the elders should have complied and managed the situation before it was perverted.

Contrary to popular belief, Hayyim Vital adhered to what it says in the Talmud, Tractate Hagigah, 11b-13a, "One should not teach ... the Act of conception in couples, nor the Act of the Chariot to a single, unless you are wise and can understand the implications yourself, etc." Supposedly, Luria forbade Hayyim Vital from writing amulets and using other techniques of practical ™.

Evidently, Luria taught that without the Temple in Jerusalem and its ashes of the Red Heifer to purify, the pursuit of our realm of practical ™ by a person with an impure body is very detrimental.
Most Hasidim use some variation of Nusach Sefard, a blend of every nation’s liturgies, based on the symbiotic brainpower of Isaac Luria, "the Arizal."

Hayyim Vital's work became an emergent property between people and ways of processing information. Luria is regarded the father of “contemporary” esoteric theosophical ™. The discomfort of separating Hasidic philosophy from that of Lurianic Kabbalism baffles me.

It appears that, Hayyim Vital conceptualized the immaterial realms through their inner Sephiroth of celestial exile and redemption. This mythos brought deeper notions to the fore: theodicy (primordial origin of Yetzer HaRa) and deportation of transcendent existence, eschatological redemption, the cosmic role of each person and the chronicled affairs of Israel, symbolism of sexuality in the supernal phantom manifestations, and the unreceptive dynamics in the soul; articulations to the most theologically daring questions of our scriptures.

Believably, Luria's commanding and often, especially in the later generations, charismatic existence was to reassure the faithful and demonstrate the truth in ⬢ by countering doubts and despair. But more than immaterial welfare was concerned: Since Luria could ascend to the higher realms, he harvested effluence; bringing it down upon us, providing us with material gain.

Isaac Luria faced up to these problems, restructured our cosmology and resolved many of these paradoxes. Although he only wrote a few poems, you’d be hard-pressed to find an element of Judaism that hasn't been influenced by the disciples he taught for all but 3 years before he passed away in his late 30s (as every great Kabbalist before and after him has done thus far).

Ok, but why do Hasidic Jews concentrate on the liturgy of Tzadokim who lived between 1534–1572? Because most of our written chronicle goes only as far back as far as he lived, there is almost no accurate mainstream information about developments before him, and all precise mainstream information about events took place after him.

Such chronicled resets have been centered around the lifetimes of ✱ throughout our chronicle, for a variety of reasons. The only way to understand ™, in its current form, is through Hasidic liturgy. However, the lengthy chronicle of Hasidism, comprising numerous references to earlier sources in the Pentateuch, Talmud, and exegesis as a means to grounding in the traditions of Isaac Luria – as the almost sole channel to convey its ideas, all made the isolation of a joint doctrine highly challenging to me.

Translation of scripture into a vernacular is subject to criticism. Our original language is ambiguous and confusing to translate what we meant, discussions over correct interpretation occur daily.

17th-Century Rabbi Taz, made major halakhic commentary regarding who are Kabbalists in the Shulchan Aruch. Taz said wearing a kippah is required nowadays- and it stuck. The "Taz" suggested to distinguish Kabbalists from our counterparts, especially while at prayer.

This shift came shortly after we were expelled from Genoa, Italy and 1st Yeshiva was founded in Poland. From roughly 800 to 1650, we were a mostly isolated genetic swarm. When we married outside, we usually left the swarm; few married into the swarm. Mainly because, laws barred us from most jobs and forced us into international trade.

The 1st session of the Council of 4 Lands in Poland discussed taxation and other issues relevant to our swarm during this period. They understood the work of Luria affords evidence of transcendent communion. Their general conclusion has been that empathy-induced tzedakah can be genuinely selfless. Thus, unlike voluntary philanthropy, tzedakah (charity of/for Kabbalists) is seen as an obligation that must be performed regardless of any Jew's financial standing and is considered mandatory even for those of limited financial means.

Our chronicle before 1600 was deliberately falsified for political reasons. The consequences are 2-fold. Documents that conflict with this blog have been edited or fabricated by Amalekites from the pro-German Romanov dynasty. Amalek’s empires, analogously to his midlife crisis, experience a national midlife crisis. After they rise in which all earlier goals are realized the overconfidence slowly sets in. They then attack their nearest rivals.

Taz was 1 of the greatest Polish Rabbis of our Khazarian "swarm" that proliferated faster. So, his genes were favored for cognitive traits such as verbal (Keywords and SEO hinder fluidity here ;) and mathematical talent, which made us successful in the few fields where we could work; genes for irrelevant characteristics, such as spatial-visual abilities, were supported by less selective pressure than in the general population due to our tendency to cleave to ⬢ and disconnect from the world around us.

Taz understood how Lurianic Kabbalism's scheme emphasized the constitutional role of every person in redeeming the fallen sparks of transcendence, allocating ✱ only a conclusive arrival in the process. He realized some interpreted their role as indispensable in re-claiming those sparks we lost in the impurity of our past. Nathan of Gaza used Isaac Luria's (1534–1572) concepts of sparks trapped in pollution, and how pure spirits are mixed with the impure to justify a new strand of antinomianism. So Taz had his son visit this movements contemporary personification, Sabbatai Zevi.
