When the Light of Binah left the vessel of Malchut without light, the vessels of the entire level formed in Malchut. This is the aspect separating the upper, male waters, and the lower, female waters.
When Malchut wish to draw the upper light it needs to express the desire in the lower vessel. This is ‘awakening’ of the vessel on the lower level in order to draw light from Binah. This process is called ‘elevating female waters’, which connects to the male waters, light, above.
The study of Zohar activates and draw male waters directly because of the high level connection of the study. This light has greater potential of manifestation than the light drawn by our desires.
Keter and Chokmah of each level is called ‘head’. It is separated from Binah and the lower seven with a ‘curtain’. The ‘head’ controls and nourishes its lower levels.
“וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים יְהִי רָקִיעַ בְּתוֹךְ הַמָּיִם וִיהִי מַבְדִּיל בֵּין מַיִם לָמָיִם”
“Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
The ‘head’ is the holy level and lowest is the unholy level. The lower levels have greater distance from the Light and that makes them unholy because they have greater lack of light.
