comment Does learning Torah or doing Mitzvos protect others from enemies?
@DoubleAA If one of these sources do demonstrate that learning Torah or doing mitzvos protect others from physical harm and that this works geographically, it would be an interesting question if we should transfer people to an area of active danger and harm. (I.e. that would be an entirely different conversation).

comment The Chofetz Chayim's system of the olamos
@ray The system explained there is Atzilus, Briyah, Yetzira, Asiyah. There is a fifth, above these, Adam Kamon (Tzachzachos) but I don't see any reference to the Chofetz Chayim's hierarchy.

comment What is the Zohar referring to when it speaks about 'Zer Anpin' (ז"א)?
@preferred I'm currently learning the Nefesh Hachaim and looking up the Zohar's that he quotes. I'm not looking to understand the Zohar's whole system or any single concept too deeply but I have seen Zer Anpin so many times I'd like a basic idea of what he means.

comment Is the Nefesh HaChaim truly representitive of the Gra's position?
Very interesting. Do you know which nefesh hachayim I can find this at on hebrewbooks?

comment Are there any late-Achronim who wrote like a Rishon (or early-Acharon)?
If I recall correctly, Rav Wolbe himself writes in the intro to Alei Shur chelek alef that he went through a few versions of the book over many years until he was satisfied with what he finally had published.
