Technology and the Return to Eden (Tikuney Erev Shabbat Kodesh)—On the transition from profane technology to sacred technology in preparation for the advent of the Great Shabbat. Probing deeply into the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, focusing especially on the character of the Nachash (serpent, snake, sneak), the author explains that we are presently in the period of history that corresponds to that fateful Friday in Eden. He shows how the teachings of the Torah are the antidote that allows us to finally stop making the same mistake and begin the process of tikun (repair) that will bring healing to our world. He pinpoints the problems with modern technology (and the mindset behind it) and how the inner, prophetic, sacred technology of the Torah can help us make a major paradigm shift away from the path of destruction to true redemption..
