Eventually with the rise in population the number of people living grew to where they had to do it seven times to every soul and that's why there are seven people around the world that looks like you . I think this fits in to this reincarnation subject . Personally I don't hold much truth in this wisetail but food for thought I guess .
I don't know anything either . I've read in scripture where G-d told Moses to make a menorah only for the temple and it was to have 7 candle holders to represent his 7 spirits.
I also heard a story from a rabbi when we come to this Earth to pass through the matrix we make a promise not to remember where we been.
More food for thought.
I don't know and don't have any personal comments.
The original menorah was
A.) Not mentioned to do anything with 7 spirits (and nothing outside of Kabbalah says that)
B.) Not a candle holder
C.) Not for the temple because the temple didn't exist at that time
We don't remember where we've been because memory functions develop over time (most people can't remember anything from before they were 5).
You can find a Rabbi to say just about anything, so that doesn't lend the idea any credence
Malicious, wouldn't that mean there are 13 other people like you? Also this sounds like a pure ripoff of a story in Plato's symposium where Zeus chopped the original people in half and we're all looking for our counterparts
Fyxe, I earlier said I guessed there was an 85% chance forceuser was being cheeky, which he apparently isn't; hence in the other 15%

What isn't, though? If I give you seven spirits, it's the seven worlds above. If I give you the eight chakras, it's this world, and the seven above. If I give you ten or eleven dimensions in string theory, you'll make three or four to be space or space-time respectively, and the remaining seven will be the ones above. Name me a number there is any association with something vaguely unintuitive that you couldn't squeeze into this pre-drawn conclusion of yours? I bet if there was some coupling of five things, one could spin some natural ying-yang dichotomy onto it just to make it seven, just so as to make it fit once more with this pet theory.

Oh, so that's what it refers to, is it... And what is this complicated process like, then? Why would they refer to it as "matrix" also? Who would you go on to blame for the profoundly poor word choice, seeing as matrix in just about every other context refers to a grid-like arrangement of objects all drawn from the same field, like
its all poetic interpretation in the terms. the matrix refers to the process of ascending the worlds through choice. Its actually quite a complicated process.
But yea, seeing as you know a thing or two - or at any rate enough to find it "actually quite complicated" - about this process, would you care to share with us lay folk?
If you're looking to find what's wrong with everybody you will find it.
if you look at just one sentence , or paragraph you may lose the whole meaning unless you read the whole book and many other books.
Just a simple question What was the color of the 10 commandments the Lord 1st gave to Moses.
Hint if you've only read one sentence or verse I'm sure you're going to miss it.
Dig deeper you'll easily find the answer.
Sure, if we look for a specific meaning, we can twist and bend the words and their usage and the usage of the translation of the words and reinterpret the already ridiculously garbled result just enough to get the thing we wanted to hear in the first place. That point is made.
Perhaps soon we'll learn more details of this actually quite complicated process - if worthy of such knowledge or something, that is - and what it has to do with matrices that may or may not be wombs but at any rate and by what ever translation a reference to the process.
In Hebrew it is “rechem” (translates as “matrix” 5x and “womb” 21x)
The corresponding Septuagint reference in every time “matrix” is mentioned is “ mḗtra” (womb) which has its root in “mḗtēr” meaning “mother”. Clearly the word is intended as “womb”.
There are various theories on what the 7 spirits are, but no one is for sure. It’s an obscure reference in Revelation that is repeated no where else in the Bible. Seven is a common number in the Bible, it doesn’t mean there is an intent to have 7 of everything. 12 is also a common number on the Bible too, and so is 3. I can see a need to create the idea of 7 doppelgängers, when you all finally merge you become a spiritual whole- but it’s not supported by Jewish tradition.
