Essence is infinite. A human has this element. He has an essential truth that is 'stand alone' and present only because he has a Creator, and is not the product of evolution.
Sechel/mind gives a sense of reality. It is an inner understanding and not reactive.
And sechel brings a reflection of the essence to the human being. The essence is not 'downloaded'. Essence cannot be defined on a functional level.
Essence is not a worldly concept. In the framework of world there is no essence.
