Question: The Creator, being omnipotent, undoubtedly could create a person, as well as the whole world, as perfect. However, He clearly did not. In other words, we see that the creation does not correspond to the Creator at all. How is this possible?
Answer: Therefore, it is also a creation, since it is opposite to the Creator. It is thanks to this oppositeness that it can begin to feel and appreciate the Creator. Like the contrast between black and white, if there were no black, then white would not be felt either.
Therefore, on the one hand, the Creator originally created the creation opposite to Himself, so that, on the other hand, we could perceive and create His property in ourselves. And then, possessing these two properties, we can literally feel the entire creation, the entire universe, all the worlds.
