@DoubleAA Hmm. I guess I never viewed true empricism as a real valid opposition to Rationalism. Even the empricist must beilieve in the appeal of an idea to the mind.

comment What is Ruach Rah
@Yehoshua He made no mention of another source. However, I was just thinking about the premise of your question for a "Makor". Any source that would explain Ruach Rah as a currently identifiable physical phenomena like germs would have to be pretty recent coinciding with medical/scientific discovery. If that were the case the "Mekor" I would imagine would be equally as qualified as Rav Soloveichik to provide an explanation. Therefore, wouldn't really add much other than having another great mind agree.

comment How did Vashti grow a tail?
@MonicaCellio That is an interesting point Monica. Thank you for sharing that. So, you are suggesting that the issue revolves around whether she was punished, and therefore deserved the consequence or the tail just prevented her from listening to Achashveirosh. Perhaps merely to set the stage for Esther, but not necessarily a punishment

Can you elaborate? Perhaps it is a broader discussion then we can have in the comments. I would probably have to show many examples to demonstrate my point.

comment How did Vashti grow a tail?
Thank you for your comments. The comment got cut off, I am curious about what you were going to say. Also, to respond to your comment. She was by nature a prutzah and under normal circumstances would have done this without hesitation as the Gemara indicates. However, the answer of the Tail is suggesting that with the help of the Hashgacha she had a realization that she normally would not have. That is implied by Gavriel. This was out of the ordinary that she was able to see this idea. The Hashgacha helped her to see how she was being perceived so to speak.
