Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov - Ge'ullat Yisrael
Type of Spiritual Experience
Creation and destruction of the universe needs a plan, as such the Great Work - the Torah - incorporates a plan. This plan defines what is going to happen, then what happens next is that it is rolled out - executed.
The plan becomes actual.
The plan, the 'software' of the universe and so on are all written in the Word.
A description of the experience
Rabbi Yisrael Baal Shem Tov - Ge'ullat Yisrael Ostrog 1821 1d-2a
Indeed it is true that the holy Torah was originally created as an incoherent jumble of letters. In other words, all the letters of the Torah, from the beginning of Genesis to the end of Deuteronomy, were not yet combined to form the words we now read, such as 'In the beginning God created' or 'Go from thy land,' and so on.
These words, on the contrary, were not yet present, for the events of Creation that they record had not yet taken place. Thus all the letters of the Torah were indeed jumbled, and only when a certain event occurred in the world did the letters combine to form the words in which the event is related.
When, for example, the Creation of the world or the events in the life of Adam and Eve took place, the letters formed the words that relate these events. Or when someone died, the combination 'And so-and-so died' came into being. So it was with all other matters. As soon as something happened, the corresponding combinations of letters came into being.
If another event had occurred in its place, other combinations of letters would have arisen, for know that the holy Torah is God’s infinite wisdom
