    ...is like describing riding a bicycle using words associated with pizza:

    First you need to sit on the dough, while holding on to the two sauces. Then you put your feet on the cheeses by your feet and press down first on one side then the other. Build up speed and then your off baking all around the neighborhood.

    You see, words related to pizza are already used for pizza. Why use them to describe your bike riding? Why use kaballistic terminology to describe qaballistic concepts?

    * Note (from an alternate scholar)
    "The Hebrew word Qabalah or Kabbalah, which roughly means "Received (wisdom)," has many alternative spellings. It has become an accepted practice to make these spelling differences meaningful by letting Kabbalah refer to the system of strictly Jewish mysticism with it's Hebrew texts, letting Cabala refer to the school of interpretation by Christian mystics and letting Qabalah refer to the Hebrew interpretation plus the complex extrapolations of Western Hermeticism. The actual spelling is Qoph Beth Lamed He or QBLH."​

    And it could really get contentious if someone wants to know if your bike is a Chicago or a New York style pie.

    I think the Western interpretation of the Jewish textsl, not the Jewish interpretation of them.
