Chapter 4 and 5

The reason why specific and limited entities can exist within creation is because G-d joins a power of contraction with this infinite engendering power. This contracting power is associated with name Elo-him. It does not truly contract the infinite creative power (or "light"), but screens it out from the perspective of the creation.
