Question: Is there a connection between the term “Masach” (Screen) and “Kisuf, Kesef,” which means “covering”?
Answer: Yes, there is such a connection because the screen is a special covering of egoism, which allows a person to be above egoism, that is, above his inherent nature.
To the extent of this covering, he begins to feel something that is outside of our world, outside of his egoism. And in his egoism, he feels only this world.
Thus “Screen” and “covering” mean the same thing.
