Petach 76


 גם מציאות האחוריים, שהם מה שהאורות מתחשכים ואינם מאירים שם, אינו נראה בעתיק, כי כולו מראה פנים לכל צד.

ובחינת האחוריים נבלע בבחינת הפנים, שהם השולטים שם, רק שיש פנים מצד מ”ה, ופנים מצד ב”ן, ואותם של ב”ן נחשבים כמו אחור לשל מ”ה

 Another thing unique to Attik is the fact that the phenomenon of a “reverse side”, where the lights are darkened and don’t irradiate which is found in all other Partzufim, isn’t found in Attik. For Attik manifests a “face” on each side.

Its aspect of a “reverse side” such as it is, is subsumed under the aspect of the “face” there that governs. It’s just that there’s a “face” when it comes to MaH and a “face” when it comes to BaN, and that BaN’s “face” is considered MaH’s “reverse side” relatively speaking.
