The gardens of Babylon are hanging gardens. Beautiful as they may be, they do not touch ground. They do not touch Earth because they do not have the wisdom to be able to bring Supernal Beauty down to Earth without sullying it, without getting it dirty.
Babylon is all of the “teachers” in all of the religions who think the contemplation of the spiritual, the remote, the un-actualized is the height of Godly experience.
Not so Israel.
The Land of Israel is precisely on Earth. The Wisdom of the true Teachings of Torah are the actualization of the forms of Supernal Beauty, making them really real, making them actual, making them Earth – without making them dirty.
