Petach 97

From Atzilut downwards everything follows the present world’s governing order in the course of which things cycle until they achieve perfect benevolence. But from Attik upward everything is as it will be in eternity.

Attik is the central byway between one system of governance to another. And Adam Kadmon is comprised of the whole of existence and of all times.

מאצילות ולמטה הולך הכל לפי ענין ההנהגה של העוה”ז, שבה סובבים הדברים עד שמגיעים אל שלמות ההטבה. אך מעתיק ולמעלה – הכל הוא לפי מה שיהיה בנצחיות.

ועתיק הוא המעביר באמצע מהנהגה להנהגה. א”ק – כללות כל המציאות לכל הזמנים:
