We are looking at how in the human reality, that in order for the light of the soul to extend beyond atzilus, (which is permeated with a sense of the essence,) into the realm of action a light from above sechel is needed.
Just the powerful reality of it, itself.
This powerful reality is emunah/faith. 'it is not me, it is He that is doing it. He put me into the world and gies me function.' This is above sechel/mind.
Emunah is the level that precedes the existence of the human being. Chochmah is represented by the letter 'yud' and emunah by it's tip. A non-dimensional presence.
Israel came out of Egypt. They come as representatives of God, not of creation, and thus you see 'the splitting of the sea' – a disregard for the 'rules of nature'.
What is it that tell you, 'you have to be an adam/human?' The answer to this is contained in in a level beyond the human being. I will be a man due to the Creator, who makes man. Nothing within the human being compells one to live up to his human stature. It is the presence of his Creator within him, that 'forces' him to live up.
The most devastating element resulting from the evolutionary theory is the perspective that there is no Creator!
A person realizes that his activity is 'greater than himself'.
