Question: What is it when a person creates something from materials as the Creator, if everything is an illusion?
Answer: We do not create anything as the Creator. Only if we begin to receive the upper light, then with its help we will be able to work on our essence, on our egoism, on our desires. We will then be able, in some way, to the extent of our similarity to the Creator, begin understanding His actions, but not His essence.
