The relation of מצוות עשה (White fire, White hair) and מצוות לא תעשה (Black fire, Black hair) to עתיק.

In the previous shiur, we identified the source of מצוות עשה as ו-ה and that of מצוות לא תעשה as י-ה of Shem יהו-ה.

In this shiur we will learn that ז״ת דעתיק (Middos) are invested in א״א (Ratzon) in response to מצוות עשה. The ג״ר (Mochin) of עתיק, on the other hand transcend א״א, and are paradoxically expressed, in a hidden way, at a far lower level as שערות ז״א.

Believe it or not, all of this is not as incomprehensible as it looks and hopefully, the shiur will provide a clear explanation of the subject as well as its relevance. Bear with me.
