Fascinating post. I have several problems with the whole approach. First Lurianic kabbalah and for that matter even the one of the Rishonim of Ramban's school seem to be based on insights by great thinkers even if they claim it to be orally transmitted. In fact giluy elyahu is common in Lurianic Kabbalah but also extant in the earlier kabbalists (vide Ra'avad hil lulav - though that may be interpreted). That being a personal experience, I do not accept it as something to be disseminated and taught. It cannot be transmitted properly and when read and interpreted it becomes again a personal thing that should not be shared. Furthermore why is it seen as authentic and inviolate? It also opens up religion to personal interpretations and breaks down the system. In fact even Ramban was very reluctant to discuss his insights and felt quite guilty about it.

I think you see where I am going and wonder what your thoughts are.

Further to my earlier comment. Kabbalists look at philosophy as alien especially when we learn rambam - Gra in SA etc... In your presentation they are not in conflict as they deal in different areas. philosophy is more about our reality while kabbalah is about either about pre-reality - (Lefanim) or our inner psyche as it relates to our sense of the divine. Is this then again an interpretation of what you think Kabalah sholud be rather than what it is?

I meant Ramban not Rambam.
