We're asking, 'how can the 10 hidden sphirot be there in a state of simplicity, and yet they have definition?'

Notes by Ron Hershcopf:

In addressing the question of how we can say the 10 Sefiros Haganuzos are bpshitus/unified in a simple unity, we pointing out that they are NOT the koach of gvul (faculty of limitation) in Ein Sof.

This means they are not a distinct entity or ability like the ability to walk a physical distance to a place is a distinct ability and almost a different realm from the perspective of ratzon/will of the person about which the Baal Shem Tov says, "where the ratzon of the person is, that is where he is", meaning ratzon does not recognize the physical distance.

Regarding, the point about Ratzon ruling over the other faculties by force/fiat, this was said in conjunction with the point that the other faculties do not come from the ratzon. Is the point that if they did come from ratzon, then there would be no need for force, and they would follow automatically and willingly?
