Answer: A word is a set of forces that combine with each other in certain ways, passing from letter to letter and word to word, forming a specific order of forces that, by changing and mixing with each other, create words out of letters and sentences out of words.
In general, these are the forces of the universe, which includes still, vegetative, and animate natures, and us—all of it together. That is, words tell us about what is happening in this world and in all of the worlds.
Words are a record of vectors, a record of upper forces. Thus, when we read the Torah correctly, as it is explained by The Book of Zohar, we are talking about the entire program from the beginning of creation to the end, with all of its sequence, how it passes through all the matter of the universe, dividing and creating it.
It is as if it sculpts the universe and kneads it, as dough is kneaded, from the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human parts. In this case, all the parts are connected to each other, and each of them develops. This is what the Torah talks about from the beginning to the end.
