Laitman Vs. Nature: A Scientific Method Or A Pagan Spell?

Posted by bbedcenter on April 16, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Back in November of 2012, Michael Laitman wrote an article posted on his blog, entitled "Hurricane Sandy: The US Vs. Nature". Laitman did not miss his opportunity to take advantage of the then latest natural disaster in the United States, Hurricane Sandy. He used it as usual to encourage people's terror and keep them in fear of themselves, so that he can deceptively manipulate such fear into subliminal coercion and capture a naive audience which has just been hit by physical and emotional hardship. Laitman always takes advantage of opportune vulnerability to (mis)lead people into looking up to him for guidance in how to "fix" themselves, particularly in order to not "anger" Nature.


From Hurricane Sandy: The US Vs. Nature posted on November 2, 2012:

But generally speaking, Americans must understand that something is happening with the US. Once it was a dream, a model of democracy, and the search for something better. Despite all the dirt that our ego brings, no matter what it touched, there was also something good. But the positive aspect came to an end long ago when it turned into the exploitation of the whole world in order to satisfy the needs of Americans who are also proud of this situation.


Lately this phenomenon has reached such dimensions that in the current circumstances the US has no right to exist. So it turns out that in everything that you do, you harm others, and it is only in order to gain a bit more, even if you actually don’t need it. This approach is unthinkable since it is totally opposite from nature and doesn’t lead to correction.


The unique genius of Laitman rests on how artfully he distorts words, throwing semantic smoke that generates the following unconscious thought process:

 

  •  First, he brings in confusion skillfully injecting a lack of linguistic clarity. His speech manipulates his audience to think in undefined broad terms such as "Nature". In his lectures, Laitman claims to lead a scientific "spiritual" enterprise. As a scientist then one would have to ponder on questions such as: "what is this "nature" that I am so badly angering? What could I have possibly done that deserves such a cruel and unusual punishment? What horrible crime are these poor unaware victims guilty of?" But in reality Laitman is appealing to popular understandings, NOT to scientific thought. Popular understandings are the result of centuries of unconscious cultural conditioning. When it comes down to "spiritual" discourse, the term "nature" is a word used in pagan worship, NOT in scientific and objective thinking or in Jewish tradition. In the true scientific community of social sciences, the dilemma is actually called "Nature vs. Nurture". The meanings in this case are well defined for us within parameters given by a scientific (objective) context, and those meanings are precisely opposite to Laitman's populirized pagan use of the word "nature". Scientifically speaking, when we investigate the social essence at the core of human life, nature stands for the individual innate qualities of a person, and nurture represents the environment which provides the person with experiences. We can now easily see how Laitman distorts this very basic scientific understanding to mean exactly the opposite. In Laitman's manipulation, nature is the environment, and thus going against it will bring individuals disproportionate and horrendous punishments from "mother nature". Not only is nature the environment, but the convoluted part is that for Laitman it is NOT the natural environment of earth and the cosmic universe. In Laitman's twisted version of kabbalah, nature is the ARTIFICIAL ENVIRONMENT CREATED BY MAN, in other words, SOCIETY is Nature. This semantic trick works like a spell, and unconsciously leads naive and fearful people to think that in order to affect natural disasters (which are truly natural, and not artificially created, as opposed to any human construct in society) one needs to submit to some external social authority. And what better authority than the one that claims to be in possession of The One and Only Authentic Method to bring the ultimate solution to human misery? That is, Michael Laitman and his Bnei Baruch kingdom.

  • Secondly, once the semantic smoke of confusion disarms the thinking process of an eager and heartbroken listener, Laitman throws in some "doublespeak". For example in this case he tells us that at some undisclosed point in time America "was a dream, a model of democracy', yet "in everything that you do, you harm others, and it is only in order to gain a bit more, even if you actually don’t need it" So... a scientist, or any objective thinker would have to ask: "Is it America, or is it me? Was I ever good, just like America was, and do I now get any credit for being from another country? Is spirituality a matter of citizenship? Are Americans the bad ones, exploiting and enslaving a world oppressed by American greed? So is it me, or is it "America" and who exactly is this elusive "America"?"

  •  Thirdly, and most importantly, Laitman carefully uses linguistic tricks or 'spells' to separate "The Wisdom" from the masses. After the strategy of doublespeak a person is likely to have lost any rational inclination, or at least abandon any desire to publicly question Laitman's claims, for fear of being accused of provoking nature's most destructive wrath and causing a major natural catastrophe. So here is the moment to establish a position of authority, by marking a difference between the body of mass followers, and the head, the enlightened wise authority that must guide them, so finally Laitman states: "This approach is unthinkable since it is totally opposite from nature and doesn’t lead to correction." What beautifully crafted combination of undefined "foggy" meanings, doublespeak, and self-appointment to world lordship!! Here Laitman artfully secures his position as the ultimate authority, by separating himself from those who are "opposite from nature" and uncorrected, because... For whom is this approach unthinkable if not for one who is already "corrected" and in consonance with the nature that must be obeyed? And who could that be but the very messenger bringing these news to the people, like a Moses bringing the Tablets of Commandments?

 

Laitman accomplishes such sophisticated mind control techniques in only two short paragraphs. Can we now imagine what it does to people when all they do, all day long, is unquestionably following Laitman's words processed through Bnei Baruch committees and managers and implemented with direct orders in The Group?

--When did Laitman state that the "Environment" is the artificial environment created by Man, and that we need to submit to "external social authority"? These are words that YOU are putting into his mouth based on your confused interpretation. It appears to me that He is stating the complete OPPOSITE. --

Johntron, your comments in fact confirm your own "confused childish understanding." See "The Good Environment for the World" (Laitman blog post June 25, 2012)
Question: For us the environment is the group, the books, and the teacher. What is the right environment for the general population?
Answer: We are. A good environment is the level that is higher than me. If I turn to the environment from below (1) and value the friends by seeing them as greater than me (2), I receive the right impression from them (3).
Today the upper level for us is the teacher, the group, and the study. For the "nations of the world" it is us, the Bnei Baruch organization, in other words, mutual guarantee.

*For the record, I am not proud but sad that the seriousness of this matter compels me to call out your "confused understanding" here.
Jewish law and ethics specifically prohibits misleading people though dishonest misrepresentation or deception. The term for this is Geneivat da'at in Hebrew, which literally translates "theft of the mind", from גנבה "stealing" of דעת "understanding". The origin of the term, in the teaching of the Talmudic sages, is related to the biblical figure Absalom the third son of king David who through deception and false impression "stole the hearts of the men of Israel" in order to promote himself as the new king, which resulted in disunity among Israel.

Truth=Emet=Creator The truth can't hurt you EVER...only Lies can hurt you. Truth may taste bitter...it may feel bitter...but it can't hurt you. Truth can set you free. But a lie? A lie confuses you. A lie can hurt you or make you hurt others without knowing it. What needs to be corrected is perpetuation of the lie.

What is Truth?

http://www.lawofone.info/synopsis.php


What can be seen with your eyes or rationalized by your angular brain? What someone else says that fits with what I feel? What if my feelings are completely wrong? What if my judgements are totally off and what I deem as "truth" is some idea that was shoved into me by other people?

Everything has its distortions.



Your claims against BB are founded in a personal bias and belief based on some lack of satisfaction you've received from this organization. There are millions of others who would argue until they're dead that Bnei Baruch is not anything of what you say it is.

My claim is emperical observations. There are far more people that leave BB than stay- millions I highly doubt that.




Are they really brainwashed like you claim they are?

Yes and you are a great example keep talking so people can make up there own minds.


Aren't their claims equally as just as your's?

No you follow a man how would nuke Palestine.



Based on their personal sensation and rationale?

There is no Rational with Liatman it is a Dictatorship and you are one of his minions.




One thing is for sure- I can't judge others, because I'm not them. That's right. Even Dr. Laitman is a separate individual outside of my consciousness- so any assumptions made about this man, what he says, and the intent of Him and this organization is MY PERSONAL BIAS- NOT- "Truth" as you so arrogantly proclaim.


You can minimize all you want about Laitman but there was a Hitler watch someone words and actions this we give you a reading on there intentions.

You want to teach people to be as loosely self- critical as you are? Trusting everything you assume and feel to be true?

NO we want people to get the inside info on this organization there lies and deceits from the beginning- after that it is free will whether one wants to join this group.



Go ahead. However realize that people don't learn from staying who they are, from sticking to their beliefs and opinions about life and the world.

That's right change is the process. However while in BB I see no change but a controls system based on a man who has deviated from Kabbalah.



Good students are constantly changing and actually look forward to that change.

There is no student there is no teacher there is only remembering.

typical condescending comment from a BB minion -keep talking so people can see what BB produces as an advanced human being.

How can You tell "Truth" from a "Lie" Kim? Does the "Truth" make you feel good and a "Lie" makes you feel bad? If so, we've already got some distorted contributing factors involved in your "analysis". You entered Bnei Baruch expecting one thing and got something totally different- like a child who went to a vegetable store demanding a specific kind of candy, somehow thinking she could bribe the clerk to give her the candy she was expecting. Now that little girl is upset and decided to make a blog against the corrupt, lying vegetable store that promised cookies. Well it turns out you were looking for the wrong thing the entire time. Something comfortable that doesn't require effort, self-scrutiny, and objective criticism of yourself. Tough luck.

Freedom of expression requires that we put ourselves on the line. Whatever the personal reasons we each have for addressing the issues that we do, we comment here because we reason that our experience will benefit others. If we allow ourselves to be censored and silenced, does our experience have any real meaning?

As my posts on this website confirm, I consider freedom of expression and citizen journalism vital to all other freedoms. Maybe you heard of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, that: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

I recognize the degree to which the right is upheld in practice varies greatly and that Censorship occurs in different forms (see Propaganda Model, Wikipedia). I also recognize that Censorship is the goal of Michael Laitman and the Bnei Baruch Integral Education program. According to Michael Laitman, There Is No Education Without Censorship. "So there should be a system that selects good and right programs from the ones that exist today, and it should be clear and accurate. There should be a special filter, censorship." (Posted on Laitman.com Oct. 1, 2012 from KabTV's "The Integral World: The Formula of Integral Society," 7/1/12)
