The lights land up being vested in keilim/vessels and thus have an element of up and down…
The lights unto themselves don’t have ‘up and down’ - each light is a source.
When the light of the soul is dressed into the body, the faculties have an orientation of ‘up and down’.
Chochmah/wisdom is primary and receives light from the source.
It is a source of error to think that intelligence is based on experience. It is the living soul that provides intelligence.
Essential love is not an emotion. it is higher than that. it is ratzon/will.
The soul appreciates certain things - this is a way to understand will/ratzon.
And what does the soul want/appreciate? The soul wants what he is. Not selfishly. He is a Godly creation.
Man appreciates the reality of the world.
