Before the tzimtzum all the sphirot were mixed together and were not identified by their own existence, but rather by their source...
Let's associate the light/ohr of chassidus and the way we use 'light' in common parlance...
Light shows us the reality of the way things are. Things are visable. This is like 'day'. Day is revelation – it is essentially other worldly, since the world per se is dark.
There's wisdom and faith. Wisdom/chochmah correlates to sight – it a faculty. Faith/emunah is not a faculty – it is the revelation of the neshamah/soul itself. You cannot close your eyes to faith/emunah. It does not consist of any activity. It is not a faculty.
