We are looking at the principle leading to recognition that there is some kind of message/formulation in the lights themselves...
We are saying that the vessels are limited and thus the light must be limited to get dressed into the vessels.
In the level of atzilus, the light through the vessels is infinite in its expansiveness, but it has a designation of type – eg chochmah or chesed.
In the level of atzilus the vessels are not inherently limited since they are working in a context of, 'there's more where this comes from'.
And the human being has this atzilus quality. He is fully alive! He has the ability to really own part of the world by Godly decree. If man becomes to worldly he loses the infinite element.
If not for the limiting quality functioning in atzilus, then the lights beyond atzilus would be infinite, also after they go beyond atzilus. (לולא כח המגביל שבאצ׳ הרי היו בבחי׳ בל׳ג גם חוץ לאצ׳...)
