Kamchatka belongs to “Mother Russia” – a punning affirmation of its “Yin” nature. As well it is a place very little touched by human beings, in which drastic changes of ecology and terrain occur on a regular basis. It contains many unique plant and animal species, thus representing the way in which Binah is unrestrained by the “status quo” of the lower spheres.
