Questions and comments:
The root and source of the light: let's understand this... a dining room table is different from a table in a park... If not for the dining room there would be no dining room table – it is made to fit the room...
And the table has a place of honor.
Light is not a presence of its own. It exists only because there is an essence.
The sun gives off light... and 'day' is when the sun is present... Why is day dependent on the presence of sun? Because sun is and essence, that does not battle or recognize darkness...!
Ownership is a reflection of the original owner – a reflection of Him.
Ownership on earth is from the source of ownership. So this light is rooted in the root and source of light.
The sun cannot be extinguished. It has a Godly mandate to illuminate.
In the concept that their master gave Shamai and Hillel, chessed/kindness and gevurah/severity were inherent.
