There is a great amount of light in the point that is the origin of chochmah/wisdom. The impact of the light is overwhelming. You see the truth even though you don’t fully understand it.
When the light comes into binah it reduces itself - the light becomes obscured…
Comprehension [hasagah] is exclusively at the level of bimah [understanding].
In binah the light continues to shine - it shines broadly - not as a bright point.
Sechel/mind [in contrast to the midst/emotions] is self-effacing and seeks the truth.
The emotions experience reality via a window - it has to do with one’s experience. The light is present, but reduced and the self is an active element.
