The body is a perfect representation of what a human being is.
Above this form is called Torah. Torah comes from chochmah.
And we focused on what is chochmah. We looked at the difference between mind and emotions.
A human being is not a reaction to external effects. He is an essential presence. Without him the world has no significance. He provides reality. How does the moach/brain sense the neshamah? It is the pure sensitivity to life itself. It is not a response to a stimulus. It is close to its source – atzilus. It is soul at the bodily level.
