a little late, and a little "off-topic"

In light of the Rav's shmuz, perhaps he can answer to what Noach did AFTER the flood. That is, before he left the /Taiva/ he sends out birds (the raven once, and the dove, three[?] times.) Where is G-d in this picture? Noach was speaking directly with G-d prior to the Flood. Is this ALSO a tiny lack? Was this an example of doing his (Noach's) part? What was going on here?

why else he may have waited

noach as a tzadik possibly did not want to enter without who so ever would - and by inference who so ever may change his mind and the last minute to join him and his family. ?

Constant drilling leads to indocrination

If something takes so much reinforcing through over learning and one cannot trust one's observations,experience, instincts and intuition it is not real. It is in the realm of imagination and can only perhaps be bridged through repeating the knowledge base.I wonder?

Excellent Commentary

I have see two installments in this series. Your insights about parts of the Weekly Parsha help me learn one bite at a time. For me, it's the best way to learn and retain a little from each week. Todah Rabah
