I’d forgotten that we’d already gone into the subject of the Chariot in some detail in 3:3 above (see here and here). Suffice it to say that what we’d discussed at this point should be read in conjunction with what’s said there, earlier on. Note, too, that Ramchal also speaks of it terms of Divine governance in Pitchei Chochma v’Da’at 1.
