We are looking at the faculty that joins words and letters together to represent an idea/sechel. These letters/words are not caused by the sechel itself. They come from a force, a faculty, superior to the sechel itself.
One may think sechel is a subject of investigation that is in the hands of the individual. But it is always involving master and student.
The proper way to learn is to always remember, 'I am being taught by the one who wrote these words.' You will get it, not on your own, but due to your master's presentation to you.
The higher faculty is the one that causes the formulation – the presentation in words. Why would that be? This is like 'something from nothing'. Only He can do this. It is unprecedented. World knows only procedural levels, but to present sechel/mind externally is a superior faculty – wondrous.
