“Sechel/mind is way above the level of thought… and definition. It is an emanation from the soul. On a lower level it becomes thought and speech.”

World by definition is defined and the light is reduced to allow it to surface.
There are 3 worlds in this process… briah is the highest world - it still has the light of the impact of essence.
It is the first creation… Everything that exists relates back to its source, since nothing exists on its own.
And there’s a difference if the source you relate to is something finite, or the infinite Source.
Briah is a world that relates back to the Godly nothing… this provides a great inspiration, which is like darkness to the worlds below it.
Briah and yetzirah correspond to thought and speech.
Sechel/mind is way above the level of thought… and definition. It is an emanation from the soul. On a lower level it becomes thought and speech - they are creations of the soul in a worldly environment…
Thought becomes speech and enters the realm of time and space - an environment of many vessels.
The letters of thought are spiritual. They are not sensed on the outside.
The world of yetzirah tends towards an increase of vessels/keilim.
Isiah and Ezekiel spoke of the same thing - the Divine Chariot. But Ezekiel elaborates at great length… that’s because he saw it in the world of yetzirah [Isiah by contrast saw it in the world of briah].
Regarding light, it is the opposite - there is greater light in briah, where there is a scarcity of vessels.
