comment What is so special about the 613 mitzvos?
"But if the mitzvah is in the list of the 613, then it is most definitely d'oraisa." I was asking for a list or examples of mitzvos mentioned in the Gemara that were not clear if they are d'oraisa or d'rabanan that a Rishon's list would demonstrate how he ruled (or more specifically that the inclusion of the mitzvah in the 613 is itself the demonstration/proof that it is d'oraisa)

comment What is so special about the 613 mitzvos?
I have wondered this for some time as well and your answer makes me feel alot better about all the work that the Rishonim did. Do you know of anyone who gives a list of such mitzvas or examples?

comment How does one calculate how much time to devote to torah learning and how much time for livelihood?
I understood his point to be less technical (in the sense that the koach hatziur is not bound by choshen mishpat). I think that when most people read his eitzah they say "I guess I don't really need as much as I think I do". It's a mussar point.
