Questions and comments:
The Rebbe is explaining that the root of the vessels is from the trace/reshimu, which remains after the tzimtzum/contraction.
There are 2 systems. The lowest of light is superior to the highest level of keilim/vessel.
A vessel has a means to hold onto it. A vessel has limits and definition. You can hold it. You can grap it. But you must not lose sight of the infinite content that is within it. You can hold someone's hand, but you cannot grasp the infinite talent that it contains.
The vessels are sourced in the reshimu which is what is left after the contraction. The orot/lights are sourced from a lower origin (from the kav).
