There is a Godly flintston and a physical stone.
There is the view of a man as he is physically and then there is his Godly form. The Godly qualities are an 'add-on' to the human being?! No. It is all part of the term 'man/adam'.
Yet there is the reductionist view, that can reduce man to the physical systems and organs. All these systems do not add up to what the human being is. The human being is a Godly definition.
The term man/adam includes all the qualities of the human being is.
We are not smart, because we have developed wisdom. We are endowed with wisdom. Nurturing sechel/mind does not create it – it only draws it from its source in the soul.
The world is a Godly creation, not a worldly presence.
We have been talking about the flint stone and its spark to get the sense in inclusion without the presence of a secondary entity... This is a contradiction in terms and possible only due to it being a Godly creation...
We have also been speaking of original man – supernal man (adam kadmon). This is also a self-contradictory term. Man is a creation, but kadmon mean 'original'.
