Questions and comments:
The light of sechel is beyond tangibility.
It relates to a higher reality.
Similar to the comprehension of the angels.
This is like comprehension in the area beyond time and space.
Space and time is the realm in the creation that allows for distinction and definition. Things are in one place and not another...
The human vagaries do no affect the soul. A person may be alert or depressed etc, but the soul is unaffected.
Angels don't know things by their limits. They only see the truth of things. They have no possibility of the end of their existence.
We also have sechel/mind. We have the vessel of sechel and the sechel itself. The origin of a simple thing like a table is in the source of man. And at that level you can grasp its essence – the human level. You don't have to put you hand to its edge...
We are intended creations. We are not here due to some kind of evolutionary process. Sechel/mind relates to 'what is the divine intent and what do things stand for'.
