    Not really. As I understand it, it had to do with Justice and Mercy.

    In the future, the universe will return to the Divine attribute of Justice, with Mercy concealed within, thus uniting all apparent opposites.

    I had a Rabbi look at this and he was confused. Another Jew who teaches Hebrew said: That certainly doesn't come from a plain reading of the Torah text

    It said:

    “Initially, God intended to create it with the attribute of Justice. But then He saw that the world cannot exist [with only Justice], so He gave priority to the attribute of Mercy, and joined it with the attribute of Justice.” (Pesikta Rabbati 40)

    If God is omniscient, he would have realized that the world cannot exist with only Justice all along. There would be no "but..."

    So it is presupposing that God didn't know everything and made a mistake which he then corrected.
