Daniel asked about darkness and light. The answer: Darkness is world. It representative of world. World is that which comes into being.
It is a presence that 'came into being'. This means that is does not have a fundamental presence. You know about it by discovery, by touch. This means it is primarily in the dark.
We experience light, but don't realize what it is. Light is added onto the world. The difference between light and dark? That which you know by touch, is not fundamental. Light brings out in the creation, or brings to the creation a fundamental reality. Not just that 'it affects you'.
An animal is a living body. You are life in a body. We have to see life in everything. This means the reality, the Godly element. And this is the only thing we relate to and enjoy – find delightful.
This is the principle of light, which is an add-on to world.
Inside the text: the light is contracted, till a point remains. This is what can be used to influence the mentee or create the world. The point contains everything.
The point gives it solidity and relates it to reality. It is like a pivot. Everything in the human being depends on the center, his brain. But the brain alone, cannot do anything, yet all the faculties are derivatives from it.
The point represents the entire truth, but is not it. It is insignificant in comparison to the infinity (ohr ein sof, she lifnay hatzimzum).
