The three heads of Keter
Please watch teh video to help you understand the following Zohar paragraphs.
The world of Atzilut began to form itself from the Keter of the concealed head of the unknown/face of Atik.
Then the creation of the ‘skull’ that is Keter of Arich Anpin followed with the concealed Chokmah of Arich.
The three are one light that was revealed in the three levels of the head. The higher level ‘owns’ and protects the level before it.
The Keter of Atzilut is called ‘Atika Kadisha’, ‘Holy Ancient’ and also ‘אין’ ‘Ayin’, which means ‘nothing’, a name related to the ‘Endless’. It is a level that we can’t grasp ad for that reason it is called ‘Ayin’. From Ayin came Chokmah and the
“וְהַחָכְמָה מֵאַיִן תִּמָּצֵא וְאֵי זֶה מְקוֹם בִּינָה.”
“”But where (Ayin, אין) can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?”
From Chokmah we start seeing the formation of the three columns. Each columns has Chokmah, Binah, Zeir Anpin (Tiferet) and Malchut. That is 4 times 3 equal 12 and the Keter above makes 13 for the 13 attributes of God.
