We are looking at the difference between sechel [mind] and midot [emotions]. Sechel relates directly to the ‘Source of sources’.
Sechel [mind] is not created in the worldly environment. It comes to the world, but is not a product of the world.
A worldly reality is created - a divine reality is not contextual - it is unto itself - it stands entirely on its own truth.
Sechel reveals divine reality. It draws from the divine and bings it to a world platform. and this is where the topic of vessels/keilim comes about… [unto itself sechel/mind needs no keilim/vessels]
A keili/vessel is something made in a worldly environment and yet it communicates its purpose - it serves a higher purpose.
So too with ‘vessels of mind’ [klei ha-sechel].
