To bring to light the perfection of His deeds, His names, His appellations,
Which was the cause of the creation of the worlds,
Then the Ein Sof restricted Himself, in His middle point, precisely at the center…
(Ari, The Tree of Life)
The Creator wished to create created beings that would feel the need to reach His level—the level of the Creator. In other words, they would discover absolute emptiness in their original state and would want to be on the level of the Creator.
The Creator gives them the opportunity to rise from the state in which they found themselves at the beginning of creation to His state, the most perfect one, which means the end of correction.
In order for the created beings to gradually reveal the levels of the Creator, they were created in the lowest state and must slowly attain the Creator, that is, the more and more elevated state. Therefore, it is said that the creation of the worlds is a manifestation of His perfection.
