Answer: Of course. After the breaking additional elements emerged related to the revelation of the egoistic system, which also expands from above downwards. We all originate from the breaking. Thus, we never attain the state before the breaking, our root.
Question: What is the transformation that happens to the roots after the breaking?
Answer: After the breaking, the true desire is revealed having been concealed from creation beforehand. When the desire became revealed, it manifested in its true form: There is no screen on it. We have to attain that screen. Before the breaking, the screen descended to Malchut from the first nine Sefirot. During the breaking, Malchut itself manifested, but without the covering of the first nine Sefirot. Now together with the first nine Sefirot we must find the covering precisely for that Malchut. Therein lies all of the correction.
Question: Why does the breaking multiply the number of elements?
Answer: The first nine Sefirot intermix with Malchut and thereby give us the opportunity to see how to balance them. Without balancing the elements it would be impossible to do this because it is necessary to connect every particle to the one that corresponds to it. To do this, it is necessary to check with what intention, desire, and in what order I have to build the corrected world with the help of various details that are at my disposal in the form of a Lego. That is why I have to check the combination of every detail with every other detail, which is only possible as a result of the breaking and intermixing.
