comment How do we know that the God we encountered at Sinai is the single, infinite God?
there is a midrash which says God opened the seven heavens and showed them in prophetic vision that there is no other.

comment How do we know that God exists?
@YEZ yes, exactly. hence intelligent design is a valid proof because ultimately it's either random evolution or God. once you eliminate the former, you prove the latter.

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
place is in Him not the other way around. kind of like thinking of a blue orange fruit. it's "space" exists in your mind despite that you don't take up space in it

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
never meant that He occupies space ch'v. Just that He must be everywhere, i.e. there is nowhere devoid of Him. you could say this is like the baal hatanya regarding the tzimtzum.

comment Two types of forgetting?
I have heard from Rabbi Uziel Milevsky zt'l that there are no exact synonyms in hebrew. so according to that, yes there must be some difference in meaning

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
obviously... space is His creation as the Midrash (Bereishis Raba 68:9) expounded the verse "place is by Me" (Shemos 33:21)

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
G-d being everywhere in space never meant exclusively in space. obviously He transcends spacetime because it is His creation.

@YEZ just semantics. you cant take it literally. He is everything including time and space.
