Learning in Yamos Hamoshiach

Came across the following in the sicha of Acharon shel Pesach, 5746. Perhaps it will spark a discussion. But even if not, it is truly something to whet the appetite for geulah...

Acharon shel Pesach 5746

And so the subject matters of the future Torah study taught by Moshiach will be the esoteric teachings of Torah.

But there will be another distinction. The intellectual pursuit of the esoteric knowledge will not follow the temporal pattern of a teacher imparting knowledge and comprehension, instead it will take the form of visualization:

They will comprehend with the visualizing light of the supernal wisdom, to the degree that they will all perceive with the vision of the innermost wisdom, the reasons, and the heretofore, utterly sequestered secrets.... This is what is meant by the prophet: "He will be permeated with the spirit of the fear of the L-rd" (Yeshayahu 11:3) he will judge by the "spirit" of G-d; "He will not judge by the sight of his eyes" (Ibid.), but by the sight of his mind's eye. He will "Not decide by the hearing of his ears" (Ibid.), the listening of understanding, only with the power of the vision of Chochmah. (Likkutei Torah, Ibid.)

And since the study will take the form of seeing, he will be able to teach tens of thousands at once. It will be unnecessary to explain the meaning in lengthy logical discussions or lectures, rather the knowledge will come instantaneously, grasped in its full depth and breadth by seeing.

In Pri Etz Chaim we are told that the Arizal was able to perceive and comprehend in one instant the deep secrets and esoteric teachings of the Torah, at a "glance." If he had had to teach that knowledge in the conventional manner of transmitting wisdom, in speech and writing, it would have taken 60-80 years of discourses.

In dealing with esoterics we must remember that there were earlier sages who did learn the secrets of the Torah. Moshe, the Rashbi and others who were mentioned in the Zohar, yet in this field of learning -- there is the level of "secrets" and then "secrets of the secrets" and so on, ad infinitum. Moshiach will teach the highest levels and it will be transmitted in a manner of seeing.

When Moshiach comes, Moshe and Yehoshua and the Elders will all teach large schools of students the revealed aspects of Torah. Each will teach according to his personal system of learning which could differ from another system.

But the secrets of Torah will be taught only by Moshiach, who symbolizes the "Yechidah" of the Jewish people, the innermost aspect of Jewish souls.
