Petach 86

כל מיני החיבורים שהיה אפשר להמצא בין מ”ה וב”ן – באמת נעשו. ועל פי כולם היא ההנהגה העיקרית הנעלמת. ויש חיבורים הפכיים, ואף על פי כן שניהם נמצאים, כי הפרצופים מורכבים כך, ומשניהם נמצאים איכויות בפרצופים.

 ולפי שליטתם למעלה – כך נעשה מה שנעשה בפרצופים, אך אינו מושג ונראה כלל. אלא שהשינוים הנמצאים בפרצופים בכמה מיני מצבים, ומקרים אחרים המתחדשים בהם – ידענו שהם יוצאים מזה. אך אין שום אחד רואה אותם מה שהם באמת:

All the possible combinations of MaH and BaN did indeed come about in Radlah, and the primary order of covert governance came about thanks to those combinations. Now, there are other ways of combining MaH and BaN too, and both sorts exist within Radlah because that’s the way Partzufim are combined, and because both produce particular qualities in Partzufim.

It’s important to know too that the way these combinations govern up above in Radlah determines what happens in the Partzufim down below, in Atzilut. It’s just that this, i.e., which combination is governing at any point, simply can’t be grasped or seen. Yet when variations in the Partzufim come about in various states of being and when certain other changes suddenly take place in them, we know in hindsight that they derived from Radlah, though in fact no one can see them for what they truly are.
