The Zohar says that the truly transformed individual (The righteous) will inherit his or her own world when the Messiah arrives. The Zohar says that each star (sun) in the heavens is a world unto itself and each has its own camps (planets). The Kabbalistic sages say there will be at least 18,000 truly righteous transformed individuals who will attain their own world. Well, this spiritual truth must be reflected in the physical world as well.
Today, New Scientist Magazine reported the following:
On 10 May, scientists from NASA’s Kepler mission announced that they have more than doubled the number of confirmed planets the spacecraft has found around other stars.
The announcement bumps 1284 planets from “candidate” to “confirmed” status, adding to the previous 1041 confirmed worlds Kepler has discovered. Combined with planets discovered through other methods, there are now more than 3200 confirmed worlds outside our solar system….The new planets include 9 worlds around the size of Earth that may be in the right range of temperatures for liquid water, and therefore life. That brings the number of confirmed, potentially habitable Kepler planets up to 21.
Natalie Batalha of NASA says: “Doing the math, you’re talking about tens of billions of potentially habitable earth-size planets out there in the galaxy.”
An updated figure is expected before October 2017.
Here is part of the quote from the Tikkunei Zohar:
324. As each and every star is considered as a world of its own. And this is meant by, “And Alamot (Eng. ‘maidens’) without a number count” (Shir Hashirim 6:8). Do not read, Alamot (Eng. ‘maidens’) but, Olamot (Eng. ‘worlds’). And because the righteous are like stars, and each has his own star, therefore the earlier sages have set, “Each and every righteous has a world on his own.”
