Positive Mitzvah 107: Impurity of coming in contact with a Dead Body
Numbers 19:11 "He that touches the dead body of any man shall be unclean"
Contact with a dead body makes a person impure.
G-dliness is everything is the path of Abraham. Abraham understood that there is a Reality beyond all realities, before which no existence is true. Therefore he smashed the idols and declared to all people and in all places that there is only One. Everything is G-dliness is the path of Isaac. Isaac saw that the world is in truth G-dly. Therefore, Isaac dug wells, in the earth and in the people. He dug away the darkness and found the spark of G-dliness within each thing. Jacob struggled with the darkness.
