Regarding lights, the higher you go, the greater the number… which is odd… but this is not a number indicating numerical form… rather it indicates greater quantity.
and the lower the level the less is the amount of light that is revealed.
Regarding vessels/keilim by contrast, the higher you go the fewer vessels are found. Lower levels have an abundance of vessels/keilim.
An example is when the master bestows sechel/mind to the student. [This is the case where the rav/master gives his student something that he would not have seen on his own.]
Sechel/mind is a soul/neshama element. It is not an accumulation of information or experiences. It comes from above. It starts with chochmah/wisdom, where the concept is viewed as a reality. It is a view of the world as the soul sees it.
You’re in a body, but nevertheless the soul brings its perspective and formulates it in such a way that you can sense it while you are in a body.
The master opens the student’s mind. He enables him to see things from a higher perspective, using qualities he has not experience before. The student has to labor to absorb what he is told.
