There are no destinations only directions
The story is told by Professor Gerber who was inspired to return to Judaism from the following one minute idea.
A Chabad Lubavitch young man was giving a lecture in a university when Professor Gerber just popped in and he heard the young man saying “Two people are on a ladder, one higher than the other, who is higher?” “What a moron” thought Professor Gerber. “If the ladder is infinite then whoever is higher is no closer to the end, rather we can only say that one person is going up while the other is not or going down or perhaps both are going up, but neither can be higher.”
Likewise as our destination, G-d, is infinite, no one is higher than the other, rather it is only the direction we are going in that counts.
