Sechel/mind strives upward. It does not seek to grasp physically - it strives to unify with truth. Emotions by contrast are based on one’s own identity.
While the reality of mind/mochin is bright, there cannot, at the same time be an arousal of emotions.
Human sechel/mind goes to the ‘what is this about’ element. Being shown something is reality itself. The question of ‘do I want to buy this?’ is a matter for the emotions.
The light of mind has to be present in the emotion, otherwise it is insignificant.
The arousal of the midah/emotion is due to the mind, which says, ’this is worthy’, or ‘this is not worthy…’
