What does "spiritual" mean?
by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman
Physical things are instances of Creation we measure and define. Spiritual things are what is there before we define them.
The vast majority of the cosmos remains spiritual, inherently eluding definition. The material world that objective science deals with is a miniscule set of instances that allow a certain degree of defined measurement.
There is an ontological hierarchy of spirituality, working from absolute nothingness through successive stages of resolution and form until reaching our world of perception. The final result is our physical world, where objects are so sharply defined as to be incapable of sharing space and time with one another.
