When the Zionists call their country, “Israel,” please be aware that it is not the biblical Israel we tend to assume. So, rather than speculate about what Moses might have known - let's turn to Kabbalistic scholarship to find the answer about when "real" Kabbalah started. Giogio's writings also elaborated extensively on Pico's theses. Man becomes a "channel" of the divine, and every action has metaphysical effects: "As below, so above."
