The Creator purposefully erected gates through which one can penetrate into the spiritual world. And we have to put judges and officers so they will direct us and control our animalistic (corporeal) state.
They form the animalistic essence of a person and gradually elevate him; otherwise, we would not be able to pass through the gates of elevation.
A person himself has to appoint judges for himself because it is thanks to this that he begins to understand what steps he has to ascend.
