Hebrew translation:

32. עַתִּיקָא דְּכָל עַתִּיקִין, סְתִימָא דְּכָל סְתִימִין, אִתְתְּקַן וְלָא אִתְתְּקַן. אִתְתְּקַן, בְּגִין לְקַיְּימָא כֹּלָּא. וְלָא אִתְתְּקַן, בְּגִין דְּלָא שְׁכִיחַ.
33. כַּד אִתְתְּקַן, אַפִּיק ט’ נְהוֹרִין, דְּלַהֲטִין מִנֵּיהּ, מִתִּקּוּנוֹי. וְאִינּוּן נְהוֹרִין מִנֵּיהּ, מִתְנַהֲרִין וּמִתְלַהֲטִין, וְאָזְלִין וּמִתְפַּשְׁטִין לְכָל עִיבָר. כְּבוּצִינָא דְּאִתְפַּשְּׁטִין (דמתפשטין) מִנֵּיהּ נְהוֹרִין לְכָל עִיבָר. וְאִינּוּן נְהוֹרִין דְּמִתְפַּשְּׁטִין, כַּד יִקְרְבוּן לְמִנְדַּע לוֹן, לָא שְׁכִיחַ אֶלָּא בּוּצִינָא בִּלְחוֹדוֹי. כַּךְ הוּא עַתִּיקָא קַדִּישָׁא, (הוא) בּוּצִינָא עִלָּאָה, סְתִימָא דְּכָל סְתִימִין. וְלָא שְׁכִיחַ בַּר אִינּוּן נְהוֹרִין דְּמִתְפָּשְּׁטָן, דְּמִתְגַּלְּיָין, וּטְמִירָן. וְאִינּוּן אִקְרוּן שְׁמָא קַדִּישָׁא. וּבְגִין כָּךְ כֹּלָּא חַד.

Zohar Ha’azinu

Idra Zuta – Continued

In the process of Creation the world of Atzilut (world of Emanation) the Endless Light performed the first Tzimtzum by restricting its Endless Light and creating an empty space (Darkness, בורא חושך). The Tzimtzum left an impression in the empty space that is called ‘Adam Kadmon’ (AK). This impression is like the blueprint of the four worlds that followed. Adam Kadmon is like the Endless for the world of Atzilut that is below him.

The Zohar uses the term עתיקא דכל עתיקין, “Ancient of all ancient” and refers to the first step that was ‘copied’ from the Endless to Adam Kadmon. The root word for ‘Ancient’, ‘עתיק’ is עתק, which means ‘copy’ or the action of copying. This step of Creation is the beginning ‘head’ that is concealed and not known, like a seed of a tree that is transformed into a tree. This ‘DNA’ of the seed can be found present in all parts of the tree. We can see the outcome but not the seed.

Keter is called Atika Kadisha, “Holy Ancient” and was ‘copied’ from AK.
