We have covered the distance from ratzon/will all the way down to emotions/midot.
In chochmah/wisdom there shines an overwhelming amount of light…
All the human functions and activities are in fact there because of man’s identity… he lifts food to his mouth, not our of convenience, but because he is a human being.
This is called ohr/light.
And the real difference between a man and an animal is at the chochmah/wisdom level.
Chochmah is a state that lacks vessels… there is no ‘grasp’ and translation. It is a direct apprehension.
And any vessels that exist are in proximity to the light…
The level of binah has more vessels and less light.
Yet still it looks for what is higher than it. Binah appreciates the point/light and brings it down to a functional level.
