003* If you can talk & cook, then, you already know PaRDeS!

Dear Friends of Dialogue:

Please allow me to start this brief by dispelling certain legitimate concerns you may have regarding having a good handle on the core notion of PaRDeS. This matter is of prime importance, for our whole Campaign message hinges on this key concept. Herein I will demonstrate in plain English that you already have a good handle on this key concept PaRDeS from get-go.

If you can talk, if you can cook, then you already know it. The reason is simply because it’s built-in, written in stone as it were, in our very hearts. If there’s a single word, compound word, sentence, or concept, that best describes the essence of what makes us what we are, what makes us humans, humans, then this acronym is PaRDeS.

Let’s start this adventure with a trip to the kitchen, one of my favorites places of a house. I eat, you eat, we all eat. One can get used to anything, except to not eating. That’s how important it is. And of eating, there’s dessert, what ends a good meal.

Let’s do a hands-on thought experiment. Let’s bake a cake.

Where to start? Let’s for the sake of expediency, go to the cupboard. Therein we find the ingredients. But before that we need a recipe. And, don’t forget, let’s actually start by mentioning the obvious, the cook. Together these three, baker, recipe, and ingredients, make up a fourth, the cake!

Let’s move on, that I hunger to take a bite and accompany it with coffee, or tea, or maybe you would prefer a glass of milk. So, then, say, I go to the Internet, or to an actual cookbook. There is says, “How to Bake a Cake”, followed by the Methods for making each of the four types mentioned: Vanilla Pound Cake, Chocolate Cake, Apple Cake (Pie?), Following Cake Recipes, and Community Q&A.

Let’s take it from the top with the easiest of the three cakes to bake. It numbers the steps, starting with Method 1 Making Vanilla Pound Cake. Heading the list comes, 1 Gather your ingredients…, 2 Preheat the oven to 325 oF …, 3 Grease a cake pan…, 4 Cream the butter and sugar…, 5 Add the eggs and vanilla, 6 Stir in the cake flour…, 7 Pour the batter into the pan…, 8 Bake the cake for an hour and 15 minutes.

Then it goes on to mention Method 2 Making Chocolate Cake. This is three steps up the ladder of difficulty, taking 12 steps, including number 12 Enjoy! Next comes Method 3 Making Apple Cake. By the number of steps, I would conclude it to be one bit harder, same number of steps, no mention made of enjoying. The last one isn’t actually a recipe, rather general guidelines, Method 4 Following Cake Recipes.

If by now you’re thinking that perhaps this guy hasn’t actually ever baked a cake. Let me tell you that your suspicions are not well founded; maybe not a cake, but I have baked bread, back in the days. And, now that I’m thinking about, I may actually try it sometime in the near future. And, yes, I have had plenty of cake slides in my time.

Well, back to the thought part, of the hands-on thought experiment. Though all is thoroughly mixed, one can, nonetheless, tell certain elements apart. Just like in a chemical compound, with proper care and procedure, you can distinguish its constitutive elements. Even quite ordinary common table salt, is actually the mineral Sodium Chloride (NaCl), made up of the elements Sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl). Technically it is an ionic compound made out of sodium (Na+) and Chloride (Cl) ions, as found in the Periodic Table of the Elements. So much for Chemistry 101A.

The point in the above is that, after all is said and done, all the elements in the 8 or 12 steps can be put into four catch-all sacks, imaginary of sorts. I will put these four sacks in quotation marks, to highlight them.

Let’s start with: Method 1 Making Vanilla Pound Cake. I would put it in the “Cake Sack”. Following is: 1 Gather your ingredients… This one is tricky, for there is an embedded one, implicit, in the explicit mention of the ingredients. I would detect as embedded the Recipe set of instructions notion. Thus, I would put it in the “Recipe Sack”. Next, I would single out the actual mentioned step, and put it in the “Ingredients Sack”.

The next step is 2 Preheat the oven to 325 oF … This one is tricky as well, and would require making an argument. From science, again, we have the equivalence of matter and energy, in various forms and levels. But keeping it simple, it would likewise go in the “Ingredients Sack”. The remaining steps, 3 to 8, or else 3 to 11, I would again dip them in “Ingredients Sack”.

However, the last one in Method 2 Chocolate Cake poses a problem, namely, step 12 Enjoy! This one I would dunk in the “Baker Sack”. Of course, there’s a lot more to baking than meets the eye, as any experienced cook knows full well. But even allowing for missing steps, like the proofing pin, or kitchen cookware, and the like, one would find, nonetheless, that all else likewise falls into one or other of the Four Categories, of “Ingredients Sack”, “Recipe Sack”, “Baker Sack”, and “Cake Sack”.

Now, momentarily, hold your judgement. I promised “talk and cook”. Let’s now deliver the first one, “talk”, having actually skipped the order, for “cook” comes second. For convenience sake, we will reserve the double quotations for the Sacks, and the single ones for the wording.

Without straying too far, let’s continue by eating the cake we just baked. The thought that comes to my mind is, ‘Family and friends enjoyed my chocolate cake for dessert’. Same as above, let’s come up with our Four Sacks, catching all there is, leaving nothing unaccounted for.

My suggestion, being the case that we’re herein talking about words, is: “Sentence Sack”, “Subject Sack”, “Verb Sack”, and “Adjective/Object Sack”. My claim is that we can fit all of the contents of the sentence in the above-mentioned set of sacks.

Starting with the whole sentence, ‘Family and friends enjoyed my chocolate cake for dessert’, I would place it in the “Sentence Sack”. Now let’s break it up for analysis, employing basic English 101A grammar. ‘Family and friends’, being the subject in the sentence, I would keep in the “Subject Sack”. Following the subject normally comes the verb. This case is no exception, I would place the verb ‘enjoyed’ in the “Verb Sack”. Lastly, I would safeguard ‘my chocolate cake for dessert’, in the “Adjective/Object Sack”. More precisely, it is direct object, not adjective.

But we could just as well have come up with a sentence such as ‘Family and friends enjoyed greatly my chocolate cake for dessert’, in which case ‘greatly’ would likewise fit in the same bag, properly distinguished.

Now, don’t press me too hard, after all, I am a science, not an English, teacher. But you get the general idea. Well, if I’m not mistaken, that pretty much takes care of all said. All is accounted for, the sentence, as a whole, in the “Sentence Sack”, as well as the sentence chopped up into the respective grammatical parts, namely, “Subject Sack”, “Verb Sack”, and “Adjective/Object Sack”.

Now, let’s hold it back no longer. Let’s jump straight to the conclusion, and do two things at once, for both are essentially the same.

Without any further ado, let’s cut to the chase. Since you’re probably a firm believer in saving time, and being the case that a visual is more user-friendly, I will go ahead and rollout both in the same synoptic figure.

Allow me to fleshout the above synoptic, tightly-packed, figure in an economical number of words. The top row of two refer directly to our core notion of PaRDeS. I just spelled out the acronym PaRDeS = PeshatRémezDerashSod, then translating it into English, as PaRaDiSe = PlainRemiteDiscoverSecret, underlining letters so as to highlight the acronym.

In the second and third rows, each of the four categories have different set of brackets for coding purposes, namely, {}/ [], (), and <>. The heading immediately below the ellipse corresponds to Sod Secret, namely, {Cake}, [Sentence], (Whole), and <Being>. Right underneath it, would correspond to the right triangle, the triad of parts, made up of DerashRémezPeshat DiscoverRemitePlain.

If you will, on the one hand, the whole ellipse of parts, and on the other, the triad parts of the whole. We’ll have more to say about this later on, suffice for the present. As is self-evident, all we did was spell out the acronym PaRDeS PaRaDiSe, from the whole ellipse, into its constituent triad of parts.

Once past this hurdle, nothing to fear: PaRDeS is just pure unadulterated common-sense. Now I must let you go, and trust you will have no problem moving on to catch the spirit of my campaign message in the previous slides as well as those to follow moving forward.

Once you’re convinced that the virtue of things is PaRDeS: PaRDeS is just ReConstitution.

We can now proceed with repairing Washington DC, and the whole wide world, while we’re at it, starting from District 21.

Hence, the lemma, join the Cause and help the Movement, PaRDeS Universal ReConstitution for Washington Repair.
