Answer: Spiritual parents are Aba ve Ima (Father and Mother), qualities, Sefirot Hochma and Bina.
The upper Light descends from the world of Infinity and builds five worlds: Adam Kadmon, Atzilut, Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya, which can be represented in the form of circles. Another additional Partzuf called Adam is being built inside of them.
Adam HaRishon was born in the world of Atzilut, which consists of the following Partzufim: Atik, Arich Anpin, Aba ve Ima, Zeir Anpin, and Malchut and they are called ZON (Zeir Anpin and Nukva).
Partzuf Aba ve Ima is Father and Mother from which Adam HaRishon is born. After his birth, he descended to his place, to Malchut. All this happens due to the influence of the upper Light.
Then the desire called Adam wants to rise to its final state, the complete correction, which is complete similarity to the Creator (green arrow), which is also called Infinity. However, when Adam makes an attempt to rise to this state, the lurking serpent in him is immediately revealed.
Usually the serpent sits deep inside the desire and nothing interests it. However, as soon as it is influenced by the upper Light directed against it, it wakes up immediately. We have a very interesting picture: on one hand, there is the upper Light, and on the other hand, there is the serpent. That is, we have two opposites.
As a consequence, the entire construction of Adam falls downward (the blue arrow) into the states that are called below the Parsa, where pure the worlds Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya exist and against them also impure worlds Beria, Yetzira, and Assiya (egoism, Klipa).
The soul that is born from its lowest state called the “fall of the soul” comes to the space between pure and impure worlds.
Thus, a soul is a desire—there is nothing else in it. It was born from its parents Aba ve Ima and is called Adam from the word “similarity” (Dome) with the Creator, which it must attain in the future. The moment it wished to ascend and become like the Creator, a serpent was revealed in it in relation to the upper Light, and therefore it fell into the created pure and impure worlds and began developing in them.
From here we have three lines: the left (blue line on the drawing), the right (green line), and the most important middle (red line).
When all three lines work with each other, they are called a soul (yellow color on the drawing). One cannot exist without the other.
Question: Must the dark worlds necessarily exist against the pure worlds?
Answer: Yes, and moreover, everything exists precisely because of the impure worlds. We underestimate egoism. It would be impossible to do anything without the serpent. Thanks to the method that is called the Torah (from the word “instruction,” or “light” (Horaa, Ohr), we can isolate the separate correct parts from the serpent, correct them, and move on.
