Answer: “Secret” means hidden and nothing else. Everything that is hidden from me is called a secret, and the moment it is revealed, it becomes a reality.
“Angel” is a force. Any forces of nature are called angels. For example, the force of gravity: if now something falls to the floor, it means that the Earth has a force that attracts everything above it. This force is called the angel of attraction. “Angel,” in Hebrew “Malach,“ stems from the word “Malchut.” We call any particular properties of Malchut, angels.
Question: How is the hidden force that Adam attained different from electromagnetic waves and the force of gravity?
Answer: Adam revealed the common force of nature, which governs the whole universe, all of creation, our world and the upper world. He called it the Creator, “Boreh,” which means “Creator.” That is, he realized that this force creates. In addition, Boreh, means “Bo“ and “Reh“: come, discover, and see, attain. Adam experienced all of this himself and described it in the book The Secret Angel.
