In Which Key Did The Creator Create The Universe?

When we wish to be creative, we need to put all the rest of things that interest us aside and focus on one.

This process of putting things aside and focusing on one is named in Hebrew Tzimtzum צמצום, which in English is known as reduction, or decreasing.

In the same way, our world was created. The divine one decreased himself to a middle point, on which he could later focus, and from it, he created our world.

The Hebrew verb צמצם which means to decrease has the value of 260, which is ten times the value of the Tetragrammaton, His name in love and mercy (יהוה). In other words, the act of decreasing created a space in which the tree of life with its ten spheres could exist with love and mercy.
