The rest of this section touches on the other major Kabbalistic concern here: the creation of the worlds of Atzilut, Briah, Yetzirah, and Assiyah. But let’s retrace our steps now and see some of what we’d learned so far in this section.
After spending some time discussing other things that Klach does (see the précis here), we began to discuss the major Kabbalistic themes expanded on in this section. We began with the classical explanations of the Breaking of the Vessels (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), going on to offer Ramchal’s own (here, here, here, here, and here).
Then we went on to speak of the repair that took place for the meanwhile (here). We come now to the formation of those other worlds.
