Petach 86 is finished with the statement that it’s important to know, too, that the way these combinations govern up above in Radlah determines what happens in the Partzufim below, in Atzilut. It’s just that this, i.e., which combination is governing at any point, simply can’t be grasped or seen.
Yet understand that when variations in the Partzufim come about in different states of being and when certain other changes suddenly occur in them, we still and all know that they derived from Radlah, though in fact no one can see them for what they truly are.
