Thus, the present system of justice and judgment that must exist before the end of the universe as we know it is a consequence of the ultimate goal of complete and utter beneficence itself, even though the two seem to contradict each other. Since the judgment process will ultimately allow for perfection and the revelation of God’s Yichud. And Ramchal adds in his comments that we must keep this apparent anomaly in mind as we explore the purposeful progression of the worlds from Atzilut downward.
