    The gemara in kesuvos says (111b)   לבן שנים מחלב ... דאמר ר' יוחנן טוב המלבין שינים לחבירו יותר ממשקהו חלב the siman one has reached the level of ahavas tanugim is that he is aligned perfectly with hkbh that the ahava has hispashtus throughout all his aveiram that it naturally overflows the ahava to others

    We must chew up the food to separate the parts so its fully usable

    But, there are people in a coma unable to chew, unable to separate and fully utilize the beneficial parts of the food.

    Perhaps we are a comatose generation. 

    With a comatose patient, we take a liquefied form of beneficial nutrients and inject it directly into the comatose patient via intravenously (directly into the blood bypassing the gi system). 

    Perhaps today we need the pure extract of ruchnious nutrition directly injected into our blood, our life-force.

    We must chew up the food to separate the necessary parts

    From the unnecessary waste parts.

    But.....wine needs no chewing.  It is all good, all necessary and all pure.

    Yakov blessed his son with the wine of Torah, the inner secrets

    Although we know Avraham wrote Sefer Yetzira, and there was already a menorah of the inner esoteric parts of  Torah, why did it take another millennium until the Rashbi wrote the Zohar and then another millennium plus until the Arizal, the Baal Shem Tov  and the entire Chasidic lines afterwards to write down and disseminate the inner esoteric parts of Torah. 

    Is this comparable to the oral transmission of Torah Shem b'al Peh for a millennium until the Mishna was written, then another period of  time until the gemora,  then more time still until the shulchan aruch,  and all the chazal until today?

    Both the millenia long slow unpeeling onion of the revealed parts of  Torah and the inner esoteric parts of Torah seem to marching along in parallel towards the ultimate time when its all unravelled and the innermost core and purpose abd meaning  is obvious to us all.

    Drinking much wine causes bloodshot eyes

    EYES enable us to see, to appreciate,  to understand a thing. Without eyes it is obviously much more difficult to "see" and understand.  "A picture is  worth a thousand words" and to see a picture requires eyesight.  So, the inclusion of "eyes" in the Bracha included the ability to see and comprehend.  A great brocha.  

    BLOOD SHOT means the blood has come full force  to the eyes. We know that the life of the living being is in the blood.  Added together this means to use the gift and great ability of eyesight to see the true inner meaning and purpose of  life,  and not just the outer form, the chitzonious of the item seen by the eye.
