Makif is that which cannot be contained in a vessel. It is surrounding and not grasped.
Makif gives the feeel of an inexhaustible resource.
The makif that is related to through ohr chozer is not that which is contained in the revelation, it is cognizance of the makif as it is in the mashpia.
This is like a ball bouncing off a wall. The ball hits the wall, is not absorbed by it and bounces back. There are two elements, a) the flight of the ball is not limited to one direction and b) the wall says, “i don't accept this, I push it back”.
From the mashpia side the koach is not limited to the specific direction.
When the mushpah reaches bottom it says, “i don't want to be here, and there is the presence of the mashpia...”
the Baal Shem Tov says “why does He hide from us?” This is like a father playing hide-and-seek with his son. The child recognizes that even though he doesn't see his father, he is around and watching him. This is the element of hiding. Nothing is revealed, it is a recognition of the reality.
