We have been looking at the words from the Tanya that when letters are joined together a supreme faculty is employed.
It unifies and associates the letters to create a word.
The power to do so is not due to further elaboration of the same sechel/mind. It is from a higher, removed faculty that stands aloof from any kind of container.
This is chochmah/wisdom – 'mind of father'. Father has the ability to initiate and to create from nothing. Mother develops that which is presented.
Having a concept clearly in mind does not mean necessarily that it can be communicated to another – this requires a higher faculty.
The mentor goes into 'nothing' – the level of the student – and creates there the sechel – this 'father mind'.
Reality is rooted in nefesh/soul.
