The final Petach of this section, 69, sums up the great theme of Tikkun with the following.
The Tikkun is brought about by the balance-scale that all the lights need to repair each other , with just enough “openings” and just enough “closings”, i.e., interactions between the parts, to produce a rectified form of Divine governance with all the great orders in place and able to work in conjunction with each other.
That would enable there to be a single cycle of creation in which everything will eventually achieve a state of goodness without anymore wrong and of utter perfection.
We’ll turn next to Section 12, Partzuf.
 See Petach 59, referred to in 11:2 above.
