This is the initial stage of material from nothing. I believe that both the Big Bang and the Pearlman coincide here. The material is the whole universe the size of a pea and the temperature outside is absolute zero but the temperature inside is cooking like a pressure cooker it is so dense that light cannot escape. The inside temperature is 10 with 46 zeros Kelvin scale.
2 Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.
The internal thermonuclear compressed reactions are producing Helium, Carbon and other elements. One of them is the main composition of the planet earth, which is Iron. The reactions produce the elements in clusters of the same element that could be Silicon, Iron or Nitrogen. Oxygen is combining with Hydrogen as part of the fiery heat in this complex compacted steam. G-D is by this in HIS contracted form called Tzimzum in the Kabballah.
Here is where I differ with the Pearlman theory. I claim that since the earth formed and condensed on the first day so did the stars and galaxies. His original theory was the 4th day.
3 And God said: 'Let there be light.' And there was light.
This is the Big Bang spewing out the light and the elements from that pea sized universe and G-D expands with it.
4 And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
This is where the Pearlman Theory is better than the conventional theories of today. He has the expansion going out by the heat even faster than the speed of light. They also expand faster than the speed of light but take very long to form stars. He has stars form at 2,000,000,000 light years on the first day. They take very long and go out to a diameter of 93,000,000,000 light years needing mysterious unmeasurable dark matter and energy. He claims that a smaller universe does not need this mysterious dark matter and energy, which has never been found or measure. He has one big bang in the year zero and they have many different expansions that are faster than the speed of light. His theory of the heat pushing the matter out into the zero Kelvin world makes a lot of sense to me. National Geographic had a series on some mysterious happens from NASA one of them was a photo from the Hubble Telescope of Galaxies moving away from earth at faster than the speed of light. Did the release of the pressure and heat cause space to warp. Recently, there has been some indication of galaxies forming earlier than the previous calculations.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
How long was the first day? Was it a 24-hour day? A year or like the Psalm: 90:4 For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past? The Lubavitcher Rebbe insisted that it was a 24-hour day that we know.
6 And God said: 'Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.'
Not part of his theory but Pearlman mentioned to me in an e-mail that Angels were created on the second day based on the Medrash quoted by Chabad. http://www.chabad.org/parshah/article_cdo/aid/974948/jewish/When-were-the-angels-created.htm
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters, which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
We learn here that the initial earth was created as a ball and the planet was completely watery. The Pshat here is that water on earth and in the clouds are separated on the second day. Water in comets and other heavenly bodies were also separated on this day.
9 And God said: 'Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.' And it was so.
This can only be if the original ball has tectonic forces uplifting land mass or masses to get to heights about sea level. So the dry land appeared on the third day.
10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called He Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said: 'Let the earth put forth grass, herb yielding seed, and fruit-tree bearing fruit after its kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth.' And it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herb yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
How is it that grass and trees can form on the third day, without the sun? One there is still excess photons of light floating around the universe. Secondly, the stars are much closer. KEMA or the Pleiades was very close and Adam saw over 100 stars so he named it in Hebrew “like one hundred” that is how Gemara Berachos the Sages knew this and I always wondered but if Adam could actually see them closer by 5788 light years with the naked eye (or maybe more if they were still in a space warp faster than the speed of light), then they would appear brighter as if one had a six inch telescope.
14 And God said: 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years;
Here is where Pearlman initially figured that the stars were created. However, in my opinion, this is where the constellations were fixed for our viewing when the sun captured the earth as we see below.
15 and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.' And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
This was the day that the solar system formed and the earth-moon combination went into effect. The combination allowed us to establish an accurate lunar calendar for when seasons would come into effect after the change in the earth orbit at the flood. At this point there were no seasons and the earth’s orbit is a 12 hour day and 12 hour night. (Although a Medrash on Adam states in tractate Avoda Zara that on Dec. 21st he recorded the shortest day and then when the days did not get shorter on Dec. 25th, he was very happy and he noticed the days getting longer on Jan. 1st and started the holiday of “Calendar”. It is a nice Medrash but the Pshat after the flood is the effect of seasons first mentioned.) In fact there might not have been even rain before the flood as prior to man there was an Ayd that watered the garden. 2:5 No shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground; 6 but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
[Medrash – When Metushalah died, the world took on the light like that of the six days of creation. Velikovsky theorizes that this was a planetary or large asteroid encounter that glowed like the seven days of creation during his seven days of mourning. After which the flood occurred. For look at the calculation of years at the end of Beresheis Chapter 5. Metushalah died in 1656 and that is the year of the Mabul aka Deluge aka Biblical Flood.]
This year I am not covering the creation of Man but one can look into Tractate Berachos 61B (google “come and hear Berachos 61B”) for the creation of man.
Already after Adam and Seth died, people began forgetting HASHEM and worshipped HIS servants, the stars, planets, and other natural phenomena. Kings and princes took on the role of demi-gods and had the right to the first night or to take any woman they wanted. (This continued throughout the Middle Ages long after the flood perhaps not as gods. I don’t want to go into what ISIS did with captured women, girls and using boys although theoretically homosexuality is forbidden by Islam.)
The people before the flood were guilty of bloodshed, sexual improprieties, idol worship and Hamas or violence that was thievery and bullying.
3 And the LORD said: 'My spirit shall not abide in man forever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'
In 120 years when Metushalah shall pass on, I will no long have a Tzaddik in the world that can atone for their sins and I will destroy the world.
4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.
Nephilim has a number of means in the commentaries. I have seen the names of two angels. I have seen commentaries that these are princes who were demi-gods and lastly, I have seen claims of them being giants. I saw some “photographic proof” which turned out to be false and a film of claims about people all over the world being between 9 to 12 feet tall. An average man or woman had no power against these extremely tall bullies who would talk by force any woman any time.
5 And the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
IF YOU THINK THAT WE ARE BETTER TODAY, THEN CHECK AGAIN. THERE ARE THOUGH MORE RIGHTEOUS IN OUR GENERATION AND ABOUT TWO BILLION PLUS WILL SURVIVE THE WAR OF GOG AND MAGOG BUT THE WICKED WILL PERISH.
6 And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart. 7 And the LORD said: 'I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and fowl of the air; for it repents ME that I have made them.' 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
The L-RD decided that a brand new world would have to be created. At this point, only Noach as his family, a handful of animals and fish would survive.
Pearlman’s Theory is called: Stars Proceed [proto-stars proceed] cosmic Inflation cosmic Red shift Attests to Lagging Light. Alternatively, in short SPIRAL (L). Which is part of his Recent Complex Creation Framework. Also a revised book by the author that I have not read. Torah Testimony and Ancient Civilization Alignment Authored by Roger M. Pearlman
This is the first of the Mitzvos of the Bnei Noach.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, and upon all wherewith the ground teems, and upon all the fishes of the sea: into your hand are they delivered.
Similar to Adam HaRishon in that respect.
3 Every moving thing that lives shall be for food for you; as the green herb have I given you all. 4 Only flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
There is a possibility that Adam was a vegetarian and received from the primeval earth enough sustenance. Now Noah no longer had the good earth to grow things. He therefore had the right to eat animals. In fact every animal but now with their blood as we shall see.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it; and at the hand of man, even at the hand of every man's brother, will I require the life of man.
This is the second Mitzvah of the Bnei Noach.
6 Whoso sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God, HE made man.
No murder and the third Mitzvah for the Bnei Noach. You cannot murder for you are destroying the living image of G-D.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; swarm in the earth, and multiply therein.'
A repeat of the previous command or blessing but this is specific for mankind as the above was for all creatures including man.
8 And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying: 9 'As for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the fowl, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that go out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. 11 And I will establish My covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.' 12 And God said: 'This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I have set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth.
One day it may be so that the earth deserves to be destroyed and all mankind again. This time, one will see a rainbow and repent his ways. We make the blessing “KING of the Universe who remembers his Bris and is loyal to carry it out.”

The story that I would like to tell you transpired some four months ago.
A few families had gathered in Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv with our children. The younger children were playing on the jungle gyms, the older ones were riding bicycles, the women were talking and us, the men, were barbecuing.
I want to point out, and this isn’t really connected to the story, well maybe it is somewhat connected, that all of us who were gathered there are secular, but we respect religion.
Our group of friends has known one another since childhood and we try to head out together for a picnic once in a while, usually sometime in the middle of the week.
A religious young man came nearby to where we were having our picnic, he had a very young child with him and they were playing with a ball. We didn’t pay them much attention.
One of the guys in our group, Tomer, headed to the car park in order to get some extra pitot that we had left in his car. He came back rather annoyed saying that a motorcycle had parked very close to the door of one of his car. “I couldn’t get into the car,” he exclaimed.
Tomer is the natural-born leader of our group. He’s tall, strong, and has a very short fuse. He usually has a very big heart, until someone gets on his bad side, and this motorcycle certainly annoyed him. “Who does the motorcycle belong to?” Tomer shouted at the world as if there was a chance that among the throngs of people in the park the owner would be near enough to us to hear him.
Miraculously, the modest religious fellow asked, “Are you talking about the United Hatzalah motorcycle?”
Tomer replied. “Yeah, the big one that is red and white with a big box on the back. Why is it yours?”
The man replied, “Yes it is mine.”
Tomer growled, “So get off your backside and move it for God’s sake.”
The man answered, “Why do you need to speak like that. Speak kindly.”
“Speak kindly?” Tomer replied “Very soon you’ll feel the kindness of my fists without any words whatsoever. Now move your damned motorcycle before I come over there.”
The religious man looked at him, was visibly hurt by his words and remarked. “Would you like it if people spoke that way around your child?”
Tomer walked over to him menacingly. It looked like he really wanted to hit the fellow. But I and the other guys gathered and stopped Tomer mid stride. We told the gentleman, “Leave it alone. Please move your motorcycle and leave it alone. Tomer is not a guy you want to get into a fight with.”
In truth, I didn’t support Tomer’s actions and I believe that neither did the rest of our group of friends, but he was our friend, and this other fellow we didn’t know at all. According to our rules of conduct, that meant that we supported Tomer. The other gentleman, why would he interest at all? The gentleman took his son and walked away rather embarrassed. A quiet fell over our group. The silence screamed at us regarding what we all felt in our hearts. Why did Tomer have to embarrass this man so thoroughly, and why at all? So he could take the pitot out of the other side of the car, why did he have to treat this man so poorly. But this we only felt in our hearts. To Tomer, no one said anything. But we all felt guilty that we were part of the cause of this man’s embarrassment.
The man came back after a few minutes and continued to play with his son. What happened a few moments later changed everything.
Suddenly we heard a scream. Hagit had fallen off of the ladder on the playground. Hagit is Tomer’s daughter. She is six years old. She was playing with the rest of our children as well as dozens of others on a rope ladder that was part of a jungle gym. She simply collapsed from the top of the ladder and fell. All the other kids began screaming that something happened to her. We ran over to the jungle gym as fast as we could. Hagit simply lay on the sand, completely blue. It was clearly visible that she was not breathing.
Tomer ran over to her and began to shout, “Hagit! Hagit! Wake up! Help, Help, Somebody, help her! Someone call an ambulance.” His shouts were heard throughout the entire park.
Suddenly, the religious man appeared by my side and gave me his child. “Please take care of him, I’m coming back to help.” Before I could say or do anything he was gone as he dashed off in a crazed run.
It is hard for me to describe the next few moments. There were dozens of people who were watching a painful tragedy unfold and not a single one of them was able to do anything about it.
I can’t begin to explain the sensation of helplessness that we all felt. I simply can’t. And amid all this chaos and confusion, we heard an ambulance’s siren. We couldn’t figure out how an ambulance was arriving without anyone even calling for one. When suddenly the answered appeared before us. The siren was coming from the motorcycle, the big red one with the huge box on which it said United Hatzalah in bold words.
The young man who was sitting on it got off the motorcycle in a hurry, and with steady hands opened the box, pulled out a number of items and went up to the girl.
The whole situation was incredibly surreal. Tomer, the strong man who was always steady, was shaking like a baby, and this soft spoken man suddenly changed into the commander took charge of the situation. He began to give instructions to the gathered crowd. “You hold this… You bring me that… You run to the motorcycle and bring me the blue bag… Now tear it gently... “ Simultaneously, he called for an ambulance on his 2-way radio, “Send an ambulance to my location we have a case of a child suffering head trauma, not breathing who has lost consciousness.”
We looked at this man as a saving angel. He acted with professionalism, efficiency, and with a sense of purpose. Within less than a minute, Hagit, who was unconscious and not able to breathe began to move and cough. He succeeded in resuscitating her.
People all around began to cry. All of the women were in tears and many of the men as well. The man was focused, he continued to care for the girl and kept an open line of communication with his dispatch center. A few long minutes later that felt like an eternity, a stretcher arrived. A paramedic and two other men carried the girl to a waiting ambulance.
Tomer walked up to the young man and said, “I’m so sorry…. So very very sorry,” and broke down in tears. The man told him that “There is no time. Get on board the ambulance and go with your daughter It will all be okay.” He climbed on board and the ambulance left in a hurry.
We all approached the young man. We hugged him, and kissed him and thanked him profusely. We apologized profusely for our part in his embarrassment. I can’t express the outpouring of emotion that took place there. The man almost crumpled into himself due to the sheer amount of hugs and kisses he received. We were overwhelmed with emotion and we understood that something had occurred here that had never occurred to any of us ever before. We asked the young man for his name and number and promised him that we would keep in touch.
We headed to the hospital. Hagit had pulled through and was no longer at any risk. Tomer was shattered and pitiful. He was so embarrassed by his actions towards the man who had saved his daughter’s life. Tomer called him the next day, cried and begged for forgiveness. Tomer offered to pay the man money but the man calmed him down and said, “It’s okay, I forgive you.” He simultaneously tried to downplay what he had done. “We at United Hatzalah do these things every day. That is our reward. God forbid I should take even one penny from you.”
Tomer pressured him and pushed him to accept financial compensation. The man refused and said, “If you insist, you can make a donation to the organization, but I will not take a single cent from you.”
Hagit was released from the hospital three days later, but Tomer had not calmed down. His soul was burning. He told us that he wanted to throw a thanksgiving party and invite the young gentleman as the guest of honor.
He set the date for a week later on Saturday night and got the young man to agree to attend. He promised the man that he would make a donation to United Hatzalah as a sign of thanks. To this, the young man agreed.
This should be the end of the story, right?
However, none of us could dream of how this story would actually end. I recommend that you, the reader make sure you are sitting before I tell you the end of the story.
On Thursday night, the eve of the 23rd of the Hebrew month of Iyar, two days before the thanksgiving party for Hagit was set to occur, at3:30 in the morning, the young man was called to an emergency. His name was Effi Gadassi. While he was en route, on Menashe Ben Yisrael St. in Jerusalem, he was hit by a taxi cab while heading to save someone else’s life. He was killed on the spot.
You’ve most likely heard of Effi Gadassi, the United Hatzalah volunteer who was killed four months ago. He was the man who, with God’s help, had saved Hagit. The news reached us, and our lives were forever changed. Each and every one of us went to the funeral. We cried like babies. We held Tomer, who was close to fainting. I cannot express the pain he felt or the feelings of guilt that consumed him. We comforted him by reminding him that he had asked Effi for forgiveness and Effi had indeed forgiven him. But he felt that part of his heart had died with Effi.
However much we came back to find religion in the aftermath of these events, Tomer drew even closer to the religion that he had once overlooked. He now wears a very large Kippah on his head, he prays daily and he keeps all aspects of the Shabbat to its fullest. All because of, and in remembrance of Effi.
Tomer organized a fundraising drive amongst his friends and raised enough money to donate an ambucycle to the organization, the same kind of motorcycle that blocked his car and was used for saving his daughter’s life. The ambucycle will be dedicated in just one month’s time.
This is one story of Effi Gadassi, may his memory be a blessing. The story also represents the thousands of volunteers from United Hatzalah all of whom are doing holy work and without any regard for receiving benefit from it. As our story testifies, sometimes this holy work is not always looked upon favorably, and sometimes it even has its challenges and uncomfortable moments.. It comes with lack of sleep, and many times people even deride or chastise them. But they do it anyway.
May this story and the messages it contains be a remembrance for the dedicated volunteer Effi Gadassi and may they help his spirit rise and soar in heaven.
What I would like to see is either the leaders under Rav Auerbach should be arrested or to find out who they are and protest at their apt.
