The faculties come forward in a defined manner. So on the functional level it may appear that the difference is due to the particular situation...
Really the faculties themselves relate to what they are doing... the hand has a different faculty of movement from that of the foot... The hand senses a different vitality of the soul, to that sensed by the foot.
The variety of faculties is enormous and they are not superimposed on their environment – they operate in a living context...
And all our actions are illuminated by ohr and chayut (light and vitality) of the soul.
And the hand has a different level of this soul light, than the foot.
The soul provides vitality and light in a distinct way for each limb and faculty.
