Questions and comments:
We are looking at a rich principle... despite the fact that the lights are beyond definition and definitive presence they are the lights of the 10 sphirot – they are not 'neutral lights, without any design'.
That is to say that in the lights there are actually the element of the 10 sphirot present.
That is very challenging. It is simple and beyond definition and yet at the same time there are 10 actual defined sphirot!
The 10 sphirot are possible only in the element of the line and string (kav ve chut).
This is what you have after the contraction, and the original light is withdrawn... then this line and thread is drawn from the infinite light, but it is not the infinite light itself. And since it is from it and not it, thus there is room to speak of the 10 sphirot.
