Rather, the main difference between spirituals is in their qualities—praiseworthy or blameworthy—and the composition, since a mind that calculates astronomy will not cling to one that contemplates natural sciences (Baal HaSulam, “The Acting Mind”).
The comprehended object becomes a connecting link between the one who acquires it and the Creator. Therefore, the Creator created all of creation and the person, so that the person will recognize the Creator through the creation,; and through the creation, the Creator can influence the person. What this means is that the creation is a connecting link that connects us with the Creator. Otherwise, we would not have any possibility of communicating with the Creator.
Question: What do you mean by the word “creation”?
Answer: It is everything. It is everything that exists other than myself and the Creator. I want to see the Creator by gazing intently and searching: Where is He to be found in all of creation? Where is the acting mind that created the creation?
