bava batra 75

the ship of future dreams.

following the discussion about the legendary aspects of the sea, including the Levithan, this page explores various visions of the future, including what will happen to the Levithan, Jerusalem, and the stature of humans. These stories finish, and the talmud picks up the original mishna topic - how to buy a ship. And the need for the acquisition to be completed by an action of pulling. It brought to mind that all these future dreams and wishes are bundled together, and can only be kept alive by the scholars and dreamers pulling them into the future.
