The Petach then ends with the following, which underscores our role in the great Tikkun. But other levels of BaN that weren’t connected to MaH remained behind in Atzilut, Briah, Yetzirah, and Assiyah, so creation wasn’t complete given that there were still a number of deficiencies. Nonetheless this will eventually be rectified step by step  to the point where everything will be repaired and in a state of perfection.
 See 9:5 above.
