Connection is the condition in which there is nothing related to you or to me, rather it is only “ours.” In this connection it is impossible to distinguish anything that belongs to either party. It no longer exists. It is as if they pour dye into water and they mix.
And this is not a precise example, for there still remain molecules of water and dye.
Whereas, here it turns out there is something with no recollection of the previous components and division. Something completely new is created.
Even in an infant we distinguish the different facial features which he inherited from the father or mother. The same thing happens at the time of the descent of the worlds from above to below. Part reaches the Zeir Anpin from Abba and part from Ima. But after that, when we begin to pass from below to above, then everything is united in the Creator.
There is an action or intermediate state through which we reach unification. And unification indicates that there is only one, the two sides disappear. In our world unification like this doesn’t exist, for today a couple is connected and tomorrow there may be a divorce.
