Question: All of creation is a desire to enjoy. The desire to enjoy for my own sake is called female part and for the sake of the Creator the male part. What does this mean?
Answer: The female and male parts were not initially manifested in the created being because the created being had to develop.
This is similar to how our universe was created from the smallest particle of energy but energy of the highest class, the highest level. There was enough of it to create everything there is in our space, which we still do not know about yet. It is billions of times bigger than what we might imagine today, with everything that fills it.
It was all born from a small particle of energy that broke through the upper degree to our degree.
This particle included everything in itself: all kinds of positive and negative qualities that later expanded, developed, and become opposite to each other. Yet, all of them came from one point in which these qualities were in a potential state with no difference between them.
Therefore, if we are talking about a man and a woman, then their prototype is such a point, such an image called Adam in whom there were practically neither male nor female parts. They existed in potential and gradually developed from this object.
In our world, this was manifested as a gradual development of the matter of creation: inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature and man.
As it is described in Kabbalah, this occurred through intermediary stages from inanimate to vegetative, from vegetative to animate, and from animate to human, who developed from an ape.
