Humans have always existed in a collective context. After Eden, the world became ‘fixable’ and Tikkun Olam became applicable as a cause that would last indefinitely. Why is the ‘fixability’ of the world indefinite? Because the world will never be fully fixed. Inherently, humans are flawed for eternity, i.e. imperfect. With the Messiah, however, perfection becomes embodied on Earth, and the world is fixed –allowing for global peace while remaining humans.
Is that really so? If you dig deeper into the prophecy of the Messiah, a tragic yet realistic message is there to be found.
The Messiah –as a singular entity– will never ‘manifest’ itself in our corporeal world. In the case of the Messiah coming, I prophesize that the Messiah –in fact– will be a singular person: The last person of the world. The last person that will ever exist is the Messiah, and the ‘world peace’ that it’s supposed to bring will be the product of the absence of more than one person –the mere existence of one living human.
I would say that the Messianic prophecy of the Old Testament is, in actuality, an ironical allegory. Its goal is to explain the impossibility of a perfect world as long as humans exist through the myth of the hypothetical Messiah that will allow for ‘world peace’ to happen.
