Questions and comments:
We are discussing God's response, “Silence! This is how it came up in thought...”
The meaning is that it is beyond being able to be put into words.
It may look like a ratzon/will without taam/sense. At the level of conscious mind it cannot be understood.
It is beyond the context of the vessels of wisdom and mind (chochmah and sechel).
Mind relates to dimension and definition.
Ratzon is a reflection of the essence itself. Chochmah reflects the essence on a graspable, definitive level. Each does not explain itself, but ratzon is beyond any explanation of what it is.
The difference between ratzon and chochmah: any shape can be balanced on its center of gravity and you can sense how it works. Put any shape flat on the ground – it lies there, it is not 'balanced by the ground', it is one with it. Chochmah is the point. Ratzon is the union.
