Was just wondering...
So we know tht everything in the works has a significance
Gd made it tht way for a distinct reason even tho we often dont understand it
Is thr any reason brot down any where
Of why the Torah, is written the way it is (the format(
For example the right to left
Or even the top to bottom?
Idk cud b a stupid Q cus i guess its visually easier bt i was just wondering

Good question.


The Torah goes from right to left because right is Rachamim and strength and goodness, and left  is Din and weakness and in Hashem's cosmic plan for the world, Right conquers left.


And as far as the way the letters themselves are written, the Zohar in Achrei Mos mentions that the way each letter in a Sefer Torah is formed is influential to ensure the world is run in the proper way - everything we do influences the universe, even the way we form a single, little "yud."
