“Having discussed the Partzuf of Attik in general terms” in the previous section, Ramchal begins, “we must now examine Attik’s function in (God’s) overall governance” of the universe. And we’ll “begin by explaining those fundamental aspects of (Divine) governance that require Attik” and what it’s comprised of and implies.
We’ll thus wax philosophical again here before laying out some more of the Kabbalistic details.
