We are discovering how at the level of ‘original concept’ the vessels are superior to the lights.
The light precedes the vessel. it is superior to it.
But the concept of vessels preceded the light. It is only at the level of revelation that the light comes first.
The earth is first in intention. The heavens are first in the process of creation.
The world begins with the kav/line - the line of lights that establish that there is something ‘higher and lower’ - there’s a sequence and distance. If the flow of creation had come directly from Source and not via the kav/line there would not have been the element of ‘up and down’ in worlds.
If not for the kav/line each world would be equal to every other world. There would be no distinct sphirot.
‘Upper and lower’: the line cleaves with the infinite light above. And extends down into the world.
