Structure versus significance

The final point about the structure of the letters of the Tetragrammaton is that they represent the Partzufim and more, as we’d already discussed at some length (see Petach 17; 3:1 and especially 5:5; also see R’ C. Vitale’s Sha’arei Kedusha 3:1). But here’s much more to be said about the significance of the Tetragrammaton as opposed to other Divine appellations, as we’ll see.
