How does sechel/mind sense and see?
All the faculties in their original state rooted in the soul, and all the sphirot as rooted in the infinite light, have no other source, but for the soul and the infinite light.
The faculties you have are present due to what the soul is. They are reflective of the infinite truth of what the soul is.
Since the faculties and the sphirot are significant, thus they originate in the soul/nefesh and in the infinite light respectively. This is to counter the idea that they are created of overcome certain obstacles. Rather they are indicative of the fullness of the soul and of the infinite light (ohr ein sof).
Their is no rationale for the faculties in the soul.
The initiator of the faculties is the soul itself.
And thus all of the faculties are one and totally united within the soul, although they contain aspects that oppose one another.
This cannot be understood, but and be sensed by the feel/chush of sechel.
