As seen from a traditional-Jewish viewpoint
Let’s see and discuss which candidates there are, in no particular order.
- Duality, Plurality
G^d is radically One. His Creation is not. It’s full of contrasts, opposites, divisions, differences, details, and nuances.
G^d doesn’t change. But Creation can’t stop decaying. Life can evolve. And humans can try to inflict less hurt, be more ethical, and become eternal.
- One of Us
G^d is Unique, but He still managed to have ‘one of Us’ enter the scene who can tell good from bad too, and to whom He could be an example.
- Imperfection and Very Good
G^d lacks no perfection but made a very good world that yet needs work.
G^d reigns effortlessly. He still created us better than animals that can only go by feelings, while we can go by principles, tempted by contrary feelings, and can spend time and energy (Free Will) to resolve to do what’s best.
- Give and Receive
G^d lacks nothing, but He created a world that can receive and life able to give. He can satisfy needs, grant requests, and reward efforts to improve.
G^d is unstructured and lacks nothing. But He created a world where the whole can be something besides the parts, or spring higher qualities.
G^d has no limits. Still, He managed to make space for us.
Which do you see as the most radical? For me, it’s 4. The world and life are imperfect but still very good. Also, 2, 3, 5, and 6 have quality in them.
