Questions and comments:
How is it that something so supreme, the light of sechel can descend and be present in the brain which is in the body?!
The wisdom dressed into the physical brain is in a physical setting, yet it has perceptions beyond the physical limits.
It has perception beyond the framework of what can be measured. The mehus/essence is thus within time and space...!
The physical level is a Godly creation and retains that miraculous element. Even though there is a tendency to limit the world to what can be measured and counted...
There is a super-worldly light that is dressed into the world.
The light of chochmah/wisdom presents us with a sense of the reality of the world.
Chochmah is the presentation of what you see, as the soul sees it; in contrast to how the body sees it.
