Answer
Yes, for the kabbalistic concept of 600,000 souls represents the Nation of Israel, and that's the topic in discussion, the national redemption of Israel, and subsequently, the world. See for example Shulchan Aruch Or. Ch. 224, that when one sees 600,000 Jews in one place he makes a special blessing.
