Short Summary


Long Summary

Energy and container work together in one symbiosis, with the containers channeling the energy to shape existence, and the energy directing the function of the containers, which in turn is possible due to the subjugation (bittul) of the container to the energy.
Atzilus thus serves its true purpose as the interface that reveals and expresses the divine into existence (just as it serves to create existence). Without Atzilus we would have no knowledge of and feelings toward G-dliness. The first and primary revelation of Atzilus is in chochma (wisdom), the first of the ten attributes.
