The 10 sphirot point to the issue of illumination within limitation.

In contrast to how it is within its source.

Yes, it is 10, but it is still in a status of pshitus/simplicity. It is within the gilui/revelation – that is, it is inherent.

When we look at the world, we see reality. This is what you see with your chochmah. There is beauty itself, that precedes description of 'how it works'. He made it with beauty for a reason. It says, 'this beauty points beyond what you are looking at. It indicates the Maker'.

We must be unafraid to accept what our eyes show us. And on top of that layer we can develop an understanding of how it works.

  1. Are we saying that the appreciation of beauty (or a specific type of beauty) is an element in Chochma?
