Answer: It is a direct connection. The Creator created the levels of the still, vegetative, and animate nature and man, and He manages all these levels. The first three levels function only in order to sustain and to support the existence of the human nature.
The human nature is also divided into four parts: still, vegetative, animate, and human levels in a person.
The last level, the human level in a person, feels the need to reveal the Creator, whereas all the other parts, which means all the other people in whom the last part of the development of the desire has not been revealed, don’t feel the need to reveal Him yet and it does not concern them. They live a peaceful animate-level life.
Those in whom the desire to reach the human level in a person has already developed begin to feel the need and the necessity of attaining the force that manages them, the force that is above us. On the whole, such people come to study the wisdom of Kabbalah.
