December 21, 9: This material is challenging to many, and startling to some, but the wisdom of this subscience within kabbalah is bound to change the way we see the interrelationships of souls, how the Rav describes these arcane connections made in the Tanach that link the generations from the beginning till the end of this stage of creation.

The vitality first shone to Adam Kadmon “Primordial Man”the realm of Divine Willnamed metaphorically in relation to Man who is rooted in the initial Divine plan.
The Tzimtum allowed infinite qualities to retire into the Ein Sof, and potentially finite qualities to emerge.

The text in its forth chapter even teaches how to use the holy 72 names. Hitlabshut is very much a “biological” dynamic, ,itvei for the life-force which resides within Creation; hishtalshelut, on the other hand, is a “physical” one, concerned with the condensed-energy of “matter” spiritual vessels rather than the life-force of the soul.
We have failed every time. Where the messianic aim remained only peripheral in the linear scheme of Cordovero, the more comprehensive theoretical scheme and meditative practices of Kitvfi explained messianism as its central dynamic, incorporating the full diversity of previous Kitveo concepts as outcomes of its processes.
Having not identified Hitlabshut “Enclothement” as part of his conceptual focus, the entire issue remains premature and in need of the Ari’s future elaboration. Jacob Frank claimed to be a reincarnation of Shabbetai Tzvi, sent to reclaim sparks through the most anarchist actions of his kktvei, claiming the breaking of the Torah in his emerged messianic era was now its fulfilment, the opposite of the messianic necessity of Halakhic devotion by Luria and the Kabbalists.

As it is, the initial general impression of Lurianic Kabbalah is one of transcendence, implied by the notion of tzimtzum.
Medieval Kabbalah held that at the beginning of Creation, from the Ein Sof emerged from concealment the 10 Sephirot Divine attributes to emmanate existence.
The shards of the broken vessels fell down from the realm of Tohu into the subsequent created order of Tikun Rectificationsplintering into innumerable fragments, each animated by exiled Nitzutzot Sparks of their original light.
