We saw a dialogue brought from the Zohar, between Hashem and torah.
The point here is that where Hashem answers, “am I called erech apaim (super patient) for nothing!?” is to say that Hashem has something beyond what the torah has.
This was the intent of torah, that He reveal this attribute.
The light that is in torah bring one back to the good. That is to say that in torah itself is an element that is above chochmah/torah. This is the meor in torah.
This element of return corresponds to the second tablets that were given on yom kippur.
The first tablets were higher from the criteria of revelation, but the second tablets came in a quiet hidden way and represented a much deeper origin.
Tshuvah is a simple scream, without words, and the working with words of torah, when you don't have the light, has a similar theme.
The real reason the world appears so real is not because of the reality of the world itself, but because of what it represents, the koach eloki that creates it. This is like seeing the words without yet discerning the meaning.
