Essence makes a choice. This is not due to any identifiable quality. 'Not due to your greatness, did God choose you – in fact you are the smallest of the nations and you make yourself small'. This is the unique quality of the souls of Israel - humility.
Faith has no content.
The souls have the power to identify and separate between the inner and the outer.
This is because the souls of Israel are the choice of essence. They are not only rooted above, but chosen.
They don't stand for 'what they are', they stand for the fact that they were chosen.
About one of coarse spirit God says, 'I and he cannot share the same dwelling'.
