We are talking about ohr/light. Light is intangible. Its effect is profound. You can be in light, but you cannot grasp it.
Then can be levels of less and more light.
Chochmah/wisdom has more light. bimah/understanding has less light and more keilim/vessels.
The vessels affect the light. More vessels, mean less light.
Chochmah receives the light from above - from ratzon/will - which is not affected by keilim//vessels at all.
When there’s an increase of vessels the light is reduced.
The bimah/understanding covers or hides the chochmah/wisdom. Chochmah/wisdom it the point - and when you have the point, there is nothing more to be said.
Thought also uses language. And references. it is not the reality itself. In thought the language is referring to the real thing. but in speech you have to be descriptive… you can’t speak on the level of light/ohr. Malchus corresponds to speech and epitomizes keilim/vessels.
This is why speech has a special challenge. A well structured and presented speech might obscure the point. in thought that is not possible…
