In binah there is understanding/apprehension - this implies grasp. The topic is grasped by the person - in a worldly setting…
Chochmah is higher than this. it is above grasp - above understanding. Yet, still there is indeed the level of knowing [yediah].
A metaphor for this is sunlight. Objects are ‘just there’ when illuminated in sunlight.
In the world of understanding/binah the light is reduced, and things are there by means of proof and definition.
This is like a legal ruling [psak din].
And inside, the practical level of ‘what do I do’, and the legal ruling, and practical comprehension, light persists.
