Questions and comments:
We are looking at a principle. Although chochmah or any faculty, functions through a vessel, it has a basis on an essential level, which is way superior to that which is manifest through the vessel.
The essential level is beyond grasp and definition.
For example speech is the expression of thought in sounds... but the faculty of speech is superior to that functional level... infact human beings are called medaber/speaker... indicating a soul expression...
