We are talking about light in contrast to transfer/shefa.
The light has a superiority.
This is due to its representation of the luminary itself. It brings the luminary into proximity with the recipient.
By virtue of its presence the luminary gives off light. There are no additional steps.
Contrast this with sechel/mind. There needs to be thought and speech to communicate a topic of sechel/mind.
Light is not a derivative of something else. It is a creation in-and-of itself. It is not a derivative of fire.
An essence is not a worldly element. An essence is a direct creation from God Himself. Like light. An essence by its truth encompasses the entire environment.
