Answer: No. We perceive only the upper light but not its source. We speak about the source of the light according to the light that we attain, but we cannot say anything else about it.
Question: Does this mean that the light is between us and its source?
Answer: Yes. But we cannot understand its source, feel it, or reveal it. We can only say that it radiates good because this is what we feel.
We give names to the Creator according to our perception of what comes from Him and not any other way. It is the same in our world where we give names to anything that we feel according to our feelings. For example, if we are talking about a person you say he is good, someone else calls him evil, the third says he’s dumb, and the fourth that he is smart. Each one depicts him in a different way, which is also how we relate to the Creator.
