In atzilus we said there are lights and vessels.
Another notch to this: 'wisdom/chochmah comes from nothing' – this is to say it is a new presence, not a revelation of something already there.
The ohr/light is infinite/'bli gvul'. This light draws from the infinite light that precedes the contraction/tzimtzum.
The human being has a basic simple presence in the world. He is invited here. He owns part of the world. He has a dwelling – this is his simple presence – no-one asks him what he is doing here?
And the human being has all kinds of talents and faculties. And all these details have an element of simplicity/pshitut – since they carry the truth element. Yet there is a difference between the simplicity of the man's home itself and that of all the amenities.
