The where and what of The Unfathomable Beginning (2)

Ramchal adds that what happens there in Radlah is highly significant because it affects a great deal of the governance within the Partzufim as was explained in Petach 84.

He then begins to enter into this section’s major theme — the inscrutability of Radlah — with the remark that while neither The Unfathomable Beginning nor its offshoots within the Partzufim can be at all grasped or known because of various anomalies, it’s nonetheless true that at times certain movements can be detected in the Partzufim themselves which will be highlighted in the very next Petach whose sources are unknown but which still and all actually derive from The Unfathomable Beginning.
