Comment: Chemists who study the brain describe different chemical reactions for different desires. In fact, they have understood that it is possible to describe everything except intention. It is specifically this which differentiates a human from a beast.
In a beast, intentions and desires correspond, whereas in the human, the more he develops, the more his intention is separate from his desires.
Light is the origin of external energy. Desire is what already acts within my substance. If I want to achieve a new state, then the desire itself becomes intention. In the wisdom of Kabbalah, I don’t associate the intention with matter, but with the upper Light that changes me.
