The Iranian Nuclear Threat As For-told By The Sages
How did the Rabbis foresee the Iranian Nuclear threat and its rise to power as the Third Temple is about to be rebuilt. A deep connection between ancient Persia and modern-day Iran. The players have changed, however the message is the same.

Selfology: The Study of Self Consciousness, Its Permutations and Variations
This is a very fascinating lecture delving into some very deep philosophical concepts of Self Awareness, its different variations and how they connect to the macro attributes of Justice and Mercy. The concept of Nahama Dekisufa is discussed on a very deep level and how it aggravates Self Awareness itself. The lecturer then demonstrates two different lenses of how one can observe reality: Organismic Reality vs. Separatistic Individualistic Reality. This lecture also identifies the key features of the soul and the body, spirituality and physicality, the consciousness of the world to come (Olam Habbah) vs present-day consciousness.
