Aviut is a selfish desire that separates a person from the Creator. This desire must be overcome and not destroyed. One has to rise above it by using it correctly as a lever with which you can turn the Earth upside down.
Therefore, egoism in the usual state and when it separates us from the Creator it is called Aviut, the thickness of a desire. When we use it correctly, then Aviut turns into Zakut, to brighten, and, conversely, help us recognize, study, and approach the Creator.
