Doomsday, the World’s Destruction, and the Afterlife


This chapter consists of an introduction and four fundamentals.

Introduction: If one were to claim that a city or a palace will be destroyed and then reconstructed firmly, one would be asked the following six questions:

  • Why will it be destroyed, and is its destruction necessary?
  • Can its destroyer and its rebuilder really do these things?
  • Is such destruction possible?
  • If possible, will it really be destroyed?
  • Is such rebuilding possible?
  • If possible, will it actually be rebuilt?

The world is equivalent to a palace, and the universe to a city. Both can be destroyed, and there is a necessary cause for their destruction. Their destroyer and rebuilder can do both.
