    My only comment or question is where the author writes “it sparked the imagination of the commentators”. Did the commentators write from their imaginations? Wasn’t Rashi’s commentary divinely inspired (written with nevuah). Didn’t the Meforshim draw upon their vast accumulation of torah insight and creative minds to formulate their personal additions . Imagination is synonomous with not real, while the commentators inights where very real. Creative but real and true. “Eilu Veilu divrei elokom Chaim”. Any answerers?

    The divine proportions are created by the divine imagination which is real and true through its work of art represented by all human beings. So, if the person let the “flexible” mind to shape his/her body, where is the primary disorder?

    Your opening statement doesn’t entirely make sense. And I quote “I never quite understood……the farther removed one is from a given subject the more credibility and weight his observations seem to carry……”. It depends on what your looking credibility for… 1. if it’s depth of subject matter then you are absolutely correct. 2. If it’s validity, then you don’t make any sense. Simply put, If I want to know about wine, I’ll go to a connoisseur. But if he never tasted coke, there is no-way asking his opinion of coke will ever make sense. So it does make sense to… Read more »

    You mean, if you were to ask the connoisseur which is better coke or wine(?)….. He hasn’t had both to know.
