Tasty non-fruit-based candy is unlikely to be healthy.

comment Does Bishul Akum require intent?
Well, they didn't have opposite intention (like getting rid of the grass). Perhaps their intention is for whatever the owners want, which is cooking.

comment the four foundations - fire, wind, water, earth
@R.S. I said it is Aristotle's view, not that he was the first to have it. That said, perhaps not all of our Sefer Yetzira is original material or in its original formulation and perhaps also it is only pseudepigraphically attributed to Avraham. Whichever you think, it doesn't really matter.

I'm going to take the admittedly unpopular but unfortunately true position that cheesecake is not delicious.

@Menachem Perhaps "remote controlled Bishul Akum"?

comment How does this math work out?
Do you see now how the green area is 6000^2 square amah - 4000^2 square amah, and you don't have to subtract the city part again?

comment What kind of cleanliness is required to put on Tefillin?
If it's just that, then frankly I don't see what is so hard about avoiding those things while wearing tefillin for an hour. Nor any reason why we shouldn't expect women to be able to handle that or even to expect they would have any difficulty at all. Nor why Elisha is all that impressive.

I never met Elisha. In what ways was he so clean?

comment What kind of cleanliness is required to put on Tefillin?
The quoted Magen Avraham himself already brings the same point about overriding chiyuv. Can you elaborate on what defines "cleanliness"? Women then probably weren't falling asleep uncontrollably either.

You answered your own question: there is an inyan to eat cheesecake because everyone does it and they don't know why. That's what an inyan is!

It cancels. G = G' - O - C and O = O' - C so G = G' - O' + C - C = G' - O'
