The Keter of A”k (Adam Kadmon) is simple unity. It has no relationship with any Divine names written in the Torah. Out of it unfolds a multitude of aspects. Keter of A”k is a vessel of Ayn Sof. It is as the parchment of the Torah is written on before any letters are inscribed. A”k is before all eminations. From the 10 sefirot of A”k are eminated 10 sefirot of Atzilut. The sefirot of A”k and Atzilut are all renewed completely. Its as lighting one candle as another. “kav Yosher” dresses in A”K. Light decends from A”k to Atzilut. There is a portion of Ayn Soff in A”k and not by “histosholut” (gadual unfolding), but only the Ayn Soff has power to create “yash-miAyin” (Create from nothing). The Ayn Soff renews Atzilut, but to the Ayn Soff there is no changes or renewal. Ayn Sof is will. A”k does have the aspect of vessels but they are of very fine light. With A”k is no aspect of “Zachor” or “Nakavah”. Also with Atik of Atzilut is no “Zachor” and “Nakavah” only face and back. Keter of Arich is Zachor, Chuchmah of Arich is Nakavah. Zachor and Nakavah do find their source in ע”ב Chuchmah and ס”ג Binna of A”k. These give birth to מ”ה of A”k. The “penimi” and “Atzmut” of A”k we do not have permission of discuss or to be occupied in. Only what He eminates flowing through wholes and windows. These being the Ears , Eyes, nose, mouth and other parts of the head of A”k. In Ayn Soff and A”k there is no form at all. The Vessels of Atzilut have no limit or Measure, not a physical one. Their only restrictions are according to intellect. Before there was eminated A'”k there was Nothing. There was no aspect of time. The sefirot of Atzilut are above “sedar Zamanim” (order of times). The sefirot themselves do not have the Existance of time “mammash”. Ketter is The Torah before creation of the world. This is Z”a. The 2000 years before creation are Abba and Imma.1 From Yosher of A”k went our many lights going out from the ears,nose, mouth. Lights of the mouth of A”k are called “olam Akudim” (Malchut A”k). These are the lights of “yosher” alone, they do not have a aspect of “Iggulim”. There are lights from the eyes of A”k called “Akudim” these do have aspects of “Yosher” and “Iggulim”. These lights stand from the back of A”k until the feet and are called Nh”y A”k. (Light of the eyes of A”k is Chuchmah its ע”ב of A”k, but at the feet its Nh”y from chuchmah of A”k)2
“Botzina kardinutah” (the shining lantern of darkness) measures the flow of light, there comes out from it a line, a hidden spark, it is like this ם, at first it is a closed מם. A the line comes forth from it which is a ו by measurement it is opened and made into a בּ. And this is בראשית. (Tikunim)

Open your mind your lungs your mouth and speak out these Holy words given by Elijiah the Prophet to the Holy Ari. let them fill your being ask God to explain them to you and raise you up. Read it again and again , this is the meaning of Mishna.
The beginning of measure of all measurements is from Botzina Kardinita (dark
lamp). It is hidden of hidden. Making things in their level.
This firmament does not spark sparks from it to below. But the firmament spreads
out to illuminate its sparks. She is close to who wants here. These are the
supernal sefirot. They spark from hashem of all. Making work spreading out in all
worlds, and these are the sefirot. It makes all in Chesed din and rachamim.
In these it guides worlds. Its like this rekia (firmament) sparks out colors making works
in the world of rachamim or din, but the sparks are all one level called
keter. Botzina Kardinita is before revelation of the sefirot. Revelation of
sefirot is only after Tzizum, after there is revealed the chillel panoy (vacant space).
Changing of the first existence is sefirot. This is keter which eminates Ayn-soff. The
second emination is רצון (Divine will). All this is before revelation of any
sefirot. Which is called Bina. From Bina is emminated vessels, which is reshimu.
Sefirot go out from A”k to malchut of Assiyah. The tzimzum of the reshimu
is from A”k to Malchut of Asiyah. The פרגוד (curtain) is the מסך (screen-
filter) from Ketter to chuchmah. The reshimu is Ketter above the פרגוד. The פרגוד
allows what is proper to illuminate. Sefirot exist without borders,
till assigned actual work.1 From the light of lightening of Hod of
Bina there is from “Botzina Kardinita” 12 illuminations given to recieve the 22
letters of the Torah in Hachel “Atzom Shamayim”. The Botzina Kadenita is Rashb’y.2
“Botzina Kardinita” illuminates Chassadim from above to below.3
There are 310 lights given by keter to Abba and Imma. 310 are drawn from
Chuchmah 10 from Binna. In Ketter are 620 pillars ש“י of Chuchmah and ש“י
of Binna. This is Abba and Imma in Arich. These 310 lights of Imma are in Chaga”t.4
י ” ש (310) lights go over from the 620 of Arich to Abba and Imma, They
are 320 Sparks of the “Botzina Kardanita”. These are 315 sparks of
“Botzina Kardanita ” and 5 Sparks of the Givurot of מ נ צ פ ך
. These sparks were the first to be nullified. now they return to their
place being elevated by tikunim (corrections).
When these sparks become associated with Z’a they are called man of war.5
They are the 32 א ל ה י ” ם (elokim) of “misa Barashit ” (wisdom), 32 paths
of Chuchmah (creative power) each path containing 10 sefirot
being 320 sparks. There are 16 paths to Abba (source of creative power) and 16 to Imma
(source of Divine understanding-Nashama). Likewise 16 to Z’a (source of “ruach” the
emotional soul) and 16 to Malchut (source of Nefesh the animal soul).6
