The paths of Jacob and Esau had to be divided into two directions since they interfered with each other. If they walked together, they would not be able to comprehend the Creator. Therefore, the Creator satisfied them by giving Esau Mount Seir and lowering Jacob to Egypt so that he could gather all kinds of desires there, heavy and selfish, which he lacked for a serious movement toward the goal.
Question: It turns out that Jacob seems to be developing, but Esau is not, right?
Answer: Esau does not need to develop. We are talking about a desire that practically should not develop. But it is strong and serious. This is an egoistic desire to attain the Creator without correcting oneself.
