Questions and comments:
Sight and hearing have fundamental differences. Sight relates to the primary reality of what it sees. It sees, 'why is it here'.
We look at the sky... What is the primary reality of this observation? It is not 'what it looks like'. It is that it is the sky for the earth. That it surrounds the world and gives it the sense of being encompassed and defined.
When we wake we need to look up at the sky (Shulchan Aruch), and we see 'what the reality is'.
Sight is like wisdom/chochmah at the physical level. And the wisdom is encompassed by ratzon/will which is like sky.
