ענין חיברר מ”ה עם ב”ן לפי הבירורים שנעשו – ודאי שאינו דבר לבטלה. אלא אדרבא, נותן בפרצופים איכויות גדולות, אלא שהם נעלמים בהם. ואין נראה אלא מה שנעשה אחר הבירור. והסדר שניתן בהם לפעול – לפי הצורה שקבלו כבר כולם בהשואה אחת:
The fact that MaH is conjoined with BaN in the various Partzufim by means of the selections that were made was certainly for no reason. On the contrary, it gives the Partzufim important qualities. It’s just that those qualities are hidden within them, and what’s visible is only what was produced after the selection process. And the order in which they were placed to function depends on the form that all of them assumed equally.
