I’ve always held the belief that the amount of spiritual purity in the world is equal to the amount of spiritual impurity. I think I heard this idea before, however, I do not know the source. My question is, if this idea is true, what is the earliest source that states this fact?

    Ze Leumas Ze Asah Elokim?

  • Perhaps the 50 gates of tumah / 50 gates of kedusha?

  • I don't think that's true. Our task is to increase the purity and decrease the impurity.
