Even though torah comes out in the form of chochmah, it is rooted in essence. Chochmah takes oneg and reveals its content. Torah does this, but it is rooted in atzmus.
We looked at how everything has a body and a soul of a soul. In the world each level is maintained by the level above it. Each thing in the world doesn't stand by itself – it refers to the leve above it. This is the case by torah – what makes it really be is the inyan of atzmus itself.
About torah it is said, “a gift of good have I given you” - good is Him – essence is good. Essence is nothingness, but it is goodness itself. The essence of goodness.
We said torah is chochmah, so how can there be forgiveness, which is above chochmah. The answer is that torah talks of tshuvah, indicating its root in essence. Torah contains something that is beyond chochmah.
