Myth of Vegetarianism
Part 3: Meat Eating as Superior Spiritual Moral than Vegetarianism

Dr Ong Hean-Tatt Ph.D.

The surprising perspective from the ancient cultures' scriptures and philosophy is that meat eating is a superior moral and practice as compared to vegetarianism! There is a crucial reason why vegetarianism is not only scientifically unnatural and unhealthy for Man, but it also subjugates the true worship of God and the uplifting of the spiritual status of the Soul!

In ancient times, animal sacrifices and eating of meat were superior to vegetables offerings. The ill-understood reasons are revealed here.

Only the Spiritual Eats Meat

Despite what vegetarians would like to say about the moral merits of vegetarianism, the ancient sacred scriptures of the Hindu Vedas and the Holy Bible surprisingly present vegetarianism as an inferior, if not dangerous, moral belief.

  • This ancient attack on vegetarianism proves correct in light of modern medical evidence that the vegetarian diet is unhealthy owing to serious deficiencies in health components.

Scholars in all ancient cultures have tried to explain why there were all these "barbaric" animal sacrifices (see Annex). An ill-understood theme is that the Jewish Kaballah philosophy enigmatically and remarkably portrays that eating meat actually lifts the spiritual status of the person:

  • Similarly, our sages have said that "a boor is forbidden to eat meat" (Talmud, Pesachim 49b). The license given to man to consume the creatures and creations of the world and subjugate them to serve him is not unconditional. It is contingent upon his sensitivity to the spiritual essence of God's creations, and his commitment to serve them by making them component parts of his sanctified life. It takes an individual with broad spiritual horizons to properly relish a steak. (Chabarorg. Lubavitcher Rebbe. 2017. Meat. › ... › Re'eh › Parshah Study › Chassidic Masters)

    Rabbi Yitzchak Luria (the Ari) felt that "only a Torah scholar who is God-fearing and eats with proper intent can elevate the sparks of holiness within animals." There is also a Kabbalistic concern about the spiritual effect of meat eating on the person. The Breslover Rebbe stated that only a person who has reached a high spiritual level can be elevated by eating animal foods, and the opposite is also true: a person who lacks this high spiritual level may be further debased by eating animal foods. (JVNA. 2017. What about the Chassidic view that.

The Jewish Kabbalah philosophy is that whether a person should eat meat or not depends on his spiritual level. If a person does not have a high spiritual level he should not eat meat. The enigmatic concept is that the vegetarian actually is of a moral and spiritual level much lower than that of a meat eater. The vegetarian would be of higher spiritual and moral level only over a meat eater who is not spiritual.

Well, that is what the ancient Jewish Kabbalah philosophy says. This should ring the alarm bells in our thinking.

Note that these comments mean that meat eating will elevate the spiritual status of the person. As we shall see later in this discussion, in support of the above Jewish Kabbalah philosophy stance, the Hindu Vedas also portray animals sacrifices and eating the animal meat as a necessary part in spiritual uplifting.

This introductory discussion also warns you to try to understand one significant indisputable fact about the ancient cultures. Right from the dawn of human history around 4000 BC, the ancient cultures were full of animal sacrifices and there would be feasting upon the meat of the sacrificed animals. Vegetarianism arose much later only in the 700 BC. There would be no true worship of God or the deity or the subsequent spiritual uplifting without these animal sacrifices!

The Holy Bible shows that the Jewish Mosaic temple system, originating in 1458 BC, was fundamentally based on animal sacrifices of cattle, goats and birds. The Holy Bible state that animal sacrifices were for remission of sins.

  • And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22

    In mimicking the Jewish custom, the Roman Catholic Christians would participate in the eating of the Eurachrist "holy bread" every Sunday. This "eating of the holy bread" symbolises "eating the flesh of the Lord Jesus Christ". Not just an animal sacrifice but actually a "human sacrifice"!

What these ancient cultures are trying to tell you is that you have to eat meat to uplift the moral and spiritual status of your Soul!

Meat Eating as the Elite Meal Fit for the Gods

In ancient times, meat eating was not a common thing, as animals for eating were not plentiful. As such, in ancient times, meat eating was a higher class meal.

  • While it is difficult to believe that certain meats, such as fish and wild poultry did not show up fairly frequently on the tables of common people, we are told by Egyptologists that it was for the most part only the rich who regularly feasted on most meat. The poor ate geese, ducks, quails, cranes and other species, and from the New Kingdom onward raised domesticated fowl. Most edible fish from the Nile were consumed, though some fish, such as the genera Lepidotus and Phragus and a few others were forbidden because of their connection with the myth of Osiris....
    Beef from cattle was frequently eaten by the rich, but appeared on the tables of common people usually only during festive occasions, when a sheep or goat might be slaughtered. We also see from tomb paintings, the preparation of wild game such as antelope, ibex, gazelles and deer. Pork was eaten, though the animal was associated with the evil god Seth. Early on it was widely consumed in Lower Egypt, but rarely in Upper Egypt. Yet we know that pigs were later bred and pork widely eaten throughout Egypt. (Jimmy Dunn writing as Sarah Phillips. 2017. The Diet of the Ancient Egyptians.

    There were special farms for the fattening of oxen for slaughter. The long horned breed of oxen were fattened then adorned with ostrich feathers and displayed in processions with their owners before ritual sacrifice to the gods. Under Ramses III 16,000 cattle were sacrificed per year, just to the god Amen!
    Although cattle were raised, beef was a luxury item because much of the meat of the cattle was used for religious ceremonies and offerings. Pork, on the other hand, was eaten regularly but was not used in the Egyptian religion. Goat meat, too, was eaten throughout Egypt, and even by upper class Egyptians. The skin of the goat was used as water containers and floating devices. ( © Caroline Seawright. June 4, 2011. Avatars of the Gods: The Animals of Ancient Egypt)

In ancient Greece, meat was rarely consumed, particularly in special occasions such as religious ceremonies. Rich people had the possibility of maintaining herds of sheep, goats or cows. Poorer ones rarely ate meat because it was too expensive to buy

  • Based on osteological evidence from Greek sanctuaries, this article explores the notion that all meat eaten by the ancient Greeks came from sacrificed animals. Cattle, sheep, goats and pigs made up the bulk of the meat eaten but wild animals, dogs and horses were also consumed, though rarely sacrificed at the altar. Most meat eaten at ritual meals seems to have been boiled, a cooking method eliminating distinctions in origin and status between the animals and transforming all their meat into sacred meat. Different degrees of sacred meat can be distinguished and all animals killed and eaten in sanctuaries are not to be considered as sacrificial victims. (Gunnel Ekroth. 2007. Meat in ancient Greece : sacrificial, sacred or secular ?

The rich would more commonly consume meat. As meat was a higher level of food than vegetables, meat was offered as a higher spiritual offering to the deities.

Figure. Cain Slew Abel.
Peter Paul Reuben 1600

Abel offered animal sacrifice to God. Cain offered a vegetable sacrifice which was rejected by God. In jealousy Cain murdered Abel and was cursed by God. As far back as around 4000 BC, animal sacrifices were far superior to vegetables offerings

The higher status of meat offerings than vegetable offerings had been noted in the Holy Bible.

  • 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
    4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
    4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
    4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
    4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
    4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
    4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
    Genesis 4:2-8

The Holy Bible records the one incident, as narrated above, where God cursed Cain for trying to substitute an animal sacrifice with vegetable offerings. This was around the time of Cain and Abel in about 4000 BC.

From as far back as around 4000 BC, the Holy Bible shows that animal sacrifices were far superior to vegetables offerings in the worship of God

Figure. The Hindu Veda

The ancient Hindu Vedas dated before 1700 BC and contain verses showing there were animals sacrifices and eating of animals sacrificed. Even sacrificed cattle were eaten! The doctrine of vegetarianism was not inherent in Hinduiism and arose only in 700 BC.

The Hindu Vedic scriptures, like the Jeiwsh Kabbalah, show that meat eating uplifts the spiritual status of the Soul!

Hindu Scriptures about Meat Eating Uplifting the Soul

Several Hindu Vedic scriptures indicate that meat eating will uplift the spiritual status of the Soul.

  • "Yagnena Va Deva Divangatah" – "Only by means of sacrifice, the gods attained heaven"

    Let us also see what the Bhagavad Gita says: Slo. "Sahayagnah Prajasrushtva Purovacha Prajapatih Anena Prasavishyadhwam Eshavvostvishta Kamadukh" – "In the beginning alone, along with the creation of man, God instituted the sacrifice, and told them, "May this grant the desires of your heart"
    "Yagnakshapitakalmashah" – "Those whose sins have been effaced by means of sacrifice"

    In Rig Veda, we read, Sru: "Atmada baladah yasya chhaya-mrutam yasya mruatyuh" – "He whose shadow and death become nectar shall, by his shadow and death, confer the spirit and strength".

    Satapadha Brahmanam says, "Tasya prajapatirardhameva martyamasidardhamrutam" – God became half mortal and half immortal". This means that He united in Himself the human and the divine. In the Purusha Sukta, we read that the God Brahma is sacrificed. What is evident from the above teachings is that the true and great redeeming sacrifice would be the one performed by the Sovereign Lord of this world, who putting on both mortality and immortality and becoming incarnate as God-man, would Himself be the sacrificial animal:

    This is what the Rig Veda says about the sacrificial animal. It must be a goat without blemish..The "balusu" bush must be placed round its head.It must be bound to a sacrificial post. Nails must be driven into its four legs till they bleed. The cloth covering the goat should be divided among the four priests. None of its bones must be broken. The goat should be given a drink of Soma juice. After it has been slain, it must be restored to life again. Its flesh should be eaten

    In the Satpatha Brahmanam, we read, "Prajapatir yagnah" – "God Himself is the sacrifice".
    In Tandya Maha Brahmanam of Sama Veda, we read, Sru: "Prajapatir devebhyam atmanam yagnam krutva prayachhat" – "God would offer Himself as a sacrifice and obtain atonement for sins"

    • This passage is reminiscent of the Holy Bible's presentation that the animal sacrifices will atone for sins. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22

    The adjective Aghnya applied to the cow in the Rig Veda means a cow that was yielding milk and therefore not fit for being killed. That the cow is venerated in the Rig Veda is of course true. But this regard and veneration of the cow are only to be expected from an agricultural community like the Indo-Aryans. This application of the utility of the cow did not prevent the Aryan from killing the cow for purposes of food. Indeed, the cow was killed because the cow was regarded as sacred. As observed by Mr. Kane: "It was not that the cow was not sacred in Vedic times, it was because of her sacredness that it is ordained in the Vajasaneyi Samhita that beef should be eaten." (Dharma Shastra Vichar in Marathi, p. 180). That the Aryans of the Rig Veda did kill cows for purposes of food and ate beef is abundantly clear from the Rig Veda itself. In Rig Veda (X. 86.14) Indra says: 'They cook for one 15 plus twenty oxen". The Rig Veda (X.91.14) says that for Agni were sacrificed horses, bulls, oxen, barren cows and rams. From the Rig Veda (X.72.6) it appears that the cow was killed with a sword or axe.
    As against the statement of the Apastamba Dharma Sutra, the following points may be noted. First is the contrary statement contained in that very Sutra. At 15, 14, 29, the Sutra says: "The cow and the bull are sacred and therefore should be eaten".(Ambedkar. 05 March, 2015. Ambedkar On Beef-Eating And Hinduism.

A Scriptural Insistence that People Must Eat Meat

The Hindu Vedas show that animal sacrifices provide something essential in the worship of God:

  • vi.3.9. When the beast is offered in sacrifice, pain seizes its vital airs. 'Let thy speech swell, let thy breath swell' he says; verily he removes the pain from the vital airs. From the vital airs the pain enters the earth; (with the words) 'Hail to the and night!' he pours it down; verily he removes the pain of the earth by day and night. (Yajurveda Book VI) [the sacrifice releases something called "vital airs" from the animal. This is the "qi" in Chinese culture and "prana' in Hindu culture]

    The "vital airs from the animal" was something vital to the effectiveness of the worship.

Some Jewish scholars have realised the spiritual necessity of eating meat.

  • After the flood, God laid down a new world order. People needed to recognize the moral obligations and divine purpose entrusted to humankind. To make this clear, God told Noah that humankind can — indeed, must — eat the flesh of animals. Our dominion over animals highlights our superiority, and reminds us that we are charged with divine responsibility to perfect the world. To minimize its negative effects on the human being, when the Torah was given, God forbade the flesh of those animals that have a coarsening influence on the soul. Baruch S. Davidson. 2017. Judaism and Vegetarianism. › ... › Questions & Answers › Jewish Ethics & Morality

    • Judaism does permit the eating of meat. Some scholars feel that it is obligatory to eat meat on Shabbat and holidays, as according to the Talmud (T. B. Pesachim 109a).

      The Torah teaches that humans are granted dominion over animals (Genesis 1:26) and that only people are created in the Divine Image (Genesis 1:26, 5:1). Vegetarians are promoting a philosophy inconsistent with these Torah teachings, hence potentially reducing the sacredness of human life and the dignity of human beings.

      One Rabbi would say: As a rabbi, I feel that I must point out that if Jews do not eat meat, they will be deprived of the opportunity to fulfill many mitzvot (commandments).

The Jewish insistence about eating meat is alike to what the Hindu Vedas say:

  • As against the statement of the Apastamba Dharma Sutra, the following points may be noted. First is the contrary statement contained in that very Sutra. At 15, 14, 29, the Sutra says: "The cow and the bull are sacred and therefore should be eaten".(Ambedkar. 05 March, 2015. Ambedkar On Beef-Eating And Hinduism.

    I have always believed that Lord Rama was a vegetarian, but after reading certain blogs I found out that there might be certain verses in Ramayana (like the one below) which indicate quite the opposite.
    idam medhyamidam svaadu nistaptamidamagninaa |
    evamaaste sa dharmaatmaa siitayaa saha raaghavah || 2-96-2
    Rama, whose mind was devoted to righteousness stayed there with Seetha, saying; "This meat is fresh, this is savoury and roasted in the fire."
    Yes. Rama is a kshatriya and kshatriyas are sanctioned to eat meat. For, meat increases rajas and tamas in the body which are required in warfare. Ramayana (Aranya Kanda) clearly states that he hunted for a deer and they offered it as naivedyam (offering to God made during ritual worship) when they first set up their hermitage. In Sundara Kanda also, Hanuman tells Sita that Rama has taken no pleasure in meat or madhu since being separated from her.

All these ancient scritures say that meat eating enhance the spiritual status!


Figure. Your Body of Light, an Independent Intelligent Entity

The ancient scriptures indicate that the Photon Matrix in Man derive some form of vitalisation from photonic energies of animals which they could not get from plants.


The Photon Matrix Perspectives

Vegetarianism will become an evil thing should it obstructs animal sacrifices and eating of the meat of the sacrificed animals. For this, the particular reason has to do with the existence of the Photon Matrix in Man and the need to revitalise the Photon Matrix. In understanding that Man is based on a Photon Matrix we may need to understand how the Photon Matrix feeds.

Our DNA-protoplasm feeds on biological food composing of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Likewise, the Photon Matrix has to feed on something. Being made of photons or "Light", the Photon Matrix actually feeds on things like thoughts and feelings.

  • The Yajurveda Book VI vi3.9 says that the beast has "vital airs". The implication is that this "vital airs" can be taken up by Man who eats the animals! So, when we eat meat, this meat provides proteins, carbohydrates and fats for us. But what we do not realise is that the meat also provides "vital airs" for our Photon Matrix!

    The Photon Matrix and "vital airs" are electromagnetic quantum waves things, and the former feeds on the later.

Eating vegetables will also allow us to obtain both proteins, carbohydrates and fats as well as "vital airs". However, eating meat as compared to vegetables has differences in how the proteins, carbohydrates and fats as well as "vital airs" are made available to us. There is no doubt that proteins, carbohydrates and fats in animal meat are more easily digested by us, as plant materials have cellulose which is not easily digested by us.

But, there is another important difference. You would notice that carnivores are fierce animals. This is likely due to that the "vital airs" in animals are more vibrant than the "vital airs" in plants. This means that the "vital airs" from animals have greater capacities than "vital airs" from plants to vitalise our Photon Matrix.

With this insight, we can begin to realise why the Holy Bible state that animal sacrifices were for remission of sins.

  • And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22

"Sin" is not a biological quality but a mental or spiritual. "Sin" represents a "damaged part" in the Photon Matrix. This "damaged part" or "sin" can be overcome by "vital airs" from animals or plants, but much more so from those of animals rather than plants.

For normal people, the Photon Matrix will especially require vitalisation from meat of animals.

The Photon Matrix in Man can, however, derive vitalisation from other methods. These methods include worship, prayers and meditation. The vitalisation should come straight from God. But where the vitalisation could not come from God, then Man has to use the temporary method of eating meat.


Doctrine of "Emanationism"

The ill-understood Oneness concept of all ancient cultures is that "God is everywhere". The Spirit of God is everywhere. God's Life is everywhere. Hence, the equally ill-understood principle is that there is sacred Life everywhere, in Man, animals, plants and even stones.

Not only Man has this "sacred Life", but also other animals, plants and so-called inanimate objects. How this God's "sacred Life" is found throughout the creation is expounded in the ancient concept of the "Emanations of God".

Life permeates throughout the different levels of living and non-iving things. The vegetarian's "respect for life" misrepresents this Oneness concept.

Emanation, from the Latin emanare meaning "to flow from" or "to pour forth or out of", is the mode by which all things are derived from the first reality, or principle (Wikipedia 2017. Emanationism. All things are derived from the first reality or perfect God by steps of degradation to lesser degrees of the first reality or God, and at every step the emanating beings are less pure, less perfect, less divine. Theosophy teaches that human beings and all organisms including animals and all matter "flow" from a pure spiritual formation in the absolute to a material one over time to become materialised but later will return to the absolute after the cosmic cycle of life. Samael Aun Weor had taught emanationism from his studies with the Kabbalah and Gnosticism. He mapped out a complex esoteric cosmology with matter flowing from different planes of existence all existing in the absolute. Kleinham (2007) writes: "Underlying the worldview of traditional cosmology is the idea that the universe is an emanation of a unitary divine principle".

  • It is believed that a series of emanations of God's essence progressed into the world. The series of emanations progressively manifested in the different levels of creation. These series of emanations are often equated with the ten sephiroths, which form the "Tree of Life" pattern and also "Jacob's Ladder".

    The highest level is Man.

    The next lower level is that of animals. The further lower level composes of plants. Even lower levels manifested as physical matter on Earth.

All the manifestations are considered as contaminations of God's matter. That is, the lower emanations have greater base contaminations. So, animals are more contaminated than Man, plants are more contaminated than animals and so on.

The God's energies are trapped at all lower levels of emanations. When plants consume the minerals of the soils and air, they are said to transform back the trapped enegies in the minerals to the higher levels. When animals eat plants the animals transformed the God energies in plants back to a higher level.

You can guess. Man is the ultimate top level. It is at Man's level that all the emanations will find their way back direct to God. But, for one level to ascend back to God, it must be "eaten" by a higher level and so on.

There is a pronounced tendency toward pantheism. God is essentially identical with the universe insofar as He gives it the power of being.


Misunderstanding of What the Holy Bible Say

In understanding this concept of Emanationism, there is a need to recognise something which the opening passages of the Holy Bible reveal.

Generally, most things originated automatically through serial emanations from a First Principle, as illustrated in the Genesis 1:1-31 legend of the "7 days creation by God". But, at times, this First Principle would intervene directly to insert something into the serial emanations. One of these rare insertions or interventions is the installation of "God's breath" into Man:

  • And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7

This breathing of "the breath of life" by God was done only with respect to Man, and not to all other emanations and certainly not to the other animals. This rare intervention by God distinguishes Man from and as superior to all other emanations.

  • And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
    Genesis 1:26-27

It is thus a great mistake for vegetarians to regard animals on the same level as Man. The Genesis passage continues as:

  • And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
    And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
    And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
    Genesis 1:28-30

Verse 29 clearly shows that plants will serve as food for Man. Jewish and Christian vegetarians have often appeal to Genesis 1:29 as proof that God originally wanted Man to be a vegetarian.

But once the context of the passage Genesis 1:28-30 is taken, the meaning is very different.

  • It is true that Verse 29 clearly shows that plants will serve as food for Man. But Verse 30 actually shows that plants will also serve as food for animals.

    Then you must ask what happen to the carnivores? What about plants which eat animals? We know, however, that many animals are carnivores and have to eat meat - have they to be only vegetarians? Absurd.

    These carnivores have to prey on lower animals, especially ungulates which eat plants. There are also carnivorous plants would prey on small animals like insects. They are all God's creation, and this makes the idea that God wants us to be vegetarians absurd.

    Genesis 1:28-30 is merely pointing out that the primary source of the food chain are plants. What God is saying is "I give you plants for food (verse 29) which also serve as food for animals (verse 30). But there is no insistence that Man and animals must eat only plants. For, in the food chain in Nature, the primary plant source also become the primary source of food even for carnivores.


My dear, according to the Talmud passage Pesachim 49b, the wise eat meat, while idiots don't.


We have examined the issue of vegetarianism along these aspects:

  • The Scientific Evidence

    Modern medical science shows that the vegetarian diet has serious nutritional deficiencies, especially in B12. Surveys show that vegetarians have higher risks of serious diseases, like allergies, cancer and mental disorders, as well as lower IQs.

    God-created Nature is full of food chains where animals eat animals. God also created carnivores, which include plants which eat animals. God does not have that kind of "respect for life" envisaged by vegetarians.

    Man teeth is that of the omnivore. That is, God made Man to eat both plants and animals.

    The Ancient Scriptural Evidence

    The ancient cultures, as indicated like by the ancient scriptures of the Holy Bible and Hindu Vedas, all advocated animal sacrifices and eating of the meat of sacrificed animals.

    The Holy Bible especially shows that God does not favor vegetables offerings but insist on animal sacrifices.

    The ancient cultures scriptures also present the enigmatic concept that meat eating uplift the spiritual status of Man. The Jewish Talmud portrays that the wise eat meat but the idiots are not allowed to eat meat!

The discussions show that the vegetarian diet is unscientific, unnatural and medically unhealthy. The vegetarian diet also has no support from the ancient cultures which, instead, univocally advocate animal sacrifices. Enigmatically, and most telling, the ancient scriptures show that meat eating uplifts the spiritual status of Man.

So, the Talmud is right, allegorically putting it as "The wise eat meat, the idiots eat plants."

  • Important Advice

    "Oneness Metaphysics" encourages people to celebrate worship rituals. Make sure to have delicious meat, as the ancients had always done, for this will enhance your spiritual status and draw you closer to God .


Jewish Kabbalah Discussions over Enigma of Animal Sacrifices

The Holy Bible is so obviously full of animal sacrifcies. The Biblical scholars agonised over trying to explain animal sacrifices which appeared so barbaric. Why did God allow them?

  • Q: But the whole thing doesn't make sense! Charity, prayer, study . . . all those I can understand. But why on earth would G-d want us to burn animals on an altar?
    A: Now, don't get the idea that you're the first one to have difficulty with this. It puzzled the students of Maimonides in the 12th century. It puzzled the students of the rabbis of the Talmud. In the Zohar it's written that the secret of the sacrifices reaches to the secret of the infinite. It's one of those things that if it doesn't puzzle you, you just haven't gotten the facts straight. I think we need to look at this from a very different perspective to make sense of it....
    A: Rabbi Isaac Luria, the Arizal, explains that the sacrifices were a way of elevating the matter and vitality of this world up to a higher plane.
    Q: You know, I read a story about some tzaddik who would meditate and carry his consciousness up to higher places.
    A: Actually, anytime someone meditates and prays with focus, he or she is doing that, to some small degree.
    Q: So we're back to square one: Who needs the barbecue?
    A: Because that elevates only the human soul. The human soul has many layers. The G-dly. The rational. The animal within. The sacrifices in the Temple elevated those, plus a whole real animal. It touched not just the spirit, but the body as well.
    Q: So the animal became holy?
    A: Thereby having a general effect on all the animals in the world—plus the flour and wine that was used with it, which pulled along all the vegetable world; plus the salt and water, which pulled the inanimate realm along with it . . .(Tzvi Freeman. undated, downloaded 2017. Are You Really Planning to Bring Back those Animal Sacrifices? › ... › The Holy Temple › Readings & Insights)

    In the Hebrew Bible, sacrifice always involves transformation . One of the most common ways to transform something as a "sacrifice" is to destroy it., Destruction removes the animal from the ordinary realm to a transcendent one. Biblical texts tell us that what God received from a sacrifice was the smoke of the burning, as a "pleasing aroma" (see, for example, Lev 1:13). By receiving the smoke, the transformed sacrifice, God enjoyed a fellowship meal with human beings. This meal took place at God's dwelling—the temple...
    The theme of God's positive response to sacrifice is strongly present in the brief account of Noah's sacrifices after the great flood (Gen 8:20-21). There, God smells "the pleasing aroma" (New International Version) of burning sacrifices and determines never again to bring destruction on the world. (William K. Gilders. undarted, downloaded 2017. Sacrifice in Ancient Israel.

    • Leviticus 1:13. But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

      Genesis 8:20-21. And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
      And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

      Note. The term "sweet favour" appeared several times throughout the Old Testament and was exclusively associated with meat offerings. Where vegetable offerings are associated they were always with meat offerings.

The expanations seem ambiguous and unsatisfactory, illustrating that these scholars may not fully understand why there were animal sacrifices. However, there is a recognition that some substance was released from the sacrificed animal, which was like a "sweet savour" to God and which was capable of enhancing the spiritual status of the person who eats the meat.

For God to be able to "smell", the released substance belongs to the realm of God and the spiritual. In the light of the Photon Matrix concept, this "released substance" is some form of Photonic energy. The Photonic energy in the "released substance" can uplift the spiritual status of the person.
