Metaphysical meaning of Zedad (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Zedad (mbd)
Zedad, ze'–dad (Heb.) a side; turning aside; turning one's side to another; opposition; aversion; steep place; hillside; mountain side; coast; border.

A place on the north border of Israel's inheritance in the Promised Land, as mapped out by Moses (Num. 34:8).

Meta. A phase of consciousness in man wherein he can go no further in his human–reasoning processes. He must accept divine inspiration and ideas consciously, and so be raised to spiritual understanding, the mountain top, or else degenerate into purely material thinking, which will lead him down into chaos and confusion (a side, turning aside, opposition, mountain side, steep place, hillside, coast, border). It is a place in mind where one can either go up, or go down with the downward tendency that is the result of limited, material reasoning and belief.
