Questions and comments:
We are being shown a principle.
A faculty from the soul level is imbued into a body so that the body absorbs it and the soul faculty functions at the level of the body, while retaining a soul quality.
What facilitates this correlation and descent of the soul faculty?
This is due to the fact that in its origin state where it is exclusively a soul faculty, where there is no precariousness, it is a particular faculty.
The soul knows itself not by its own identity and experience, but by what the chochmah tells it. This is the concealed chochmah.
Chochmah is 'what am I from His perspective' and this can come down and be revealed at the moach/brain level.
In the soul where there is no darkness it is also called chochmah, because it is knowledge from above it. The soul says, 'it is not from me, it is from Him Himself'.
