We are talking of 2 types of faculties – revealed and hidden.
Revealed functioning faculties have a root. They are rooted in the concealed faculties.
Your faculties and abilities (writing, walking, talking etc) were not born at the level where they function. They originate at a level closer to the essence.
The hidden faculties are beyond process. They are drawn from the essence of the soul.
They have no gradations. They all are equal representatives of the soul/nefesh.
On the revealed level there is a sequence – there are gradations. First comes the revelation of mind/mochin.
What is so unique about mochin that it facilitates the revelation of all the other faculties? Mochin/mind is like sight. It is knowledge of the reality, in contrast to the faculty of touch. Sechel/mind has to do with how things are unto themselves.
