No one can understand … other than what’s revealed … in the Partzufim (1)

Petach 87 explores the difference between how things are governed in Radlah and how they’re governed in the Partzufim.

We’re taught here first that everything that has already been done or that’s now being done in the universe is subject to these connections, i.e., to the connections between MaH and BaN [1]. For there is nothing here that isn’t rooted there in Radlah, be it a repair or a flaw.



[1] In his comments to this Ramchal indicates that this touches upon the whole issue of God’s foreknowledge. See our discussion of that in Section 14.
