Differing Dimensions of Virtual Parameters: The Talmud on inadequate walls of a sukkah

In our previous lesson we learned about opposing schools of thought regarding the application of the halachik maxim “Gud Asik” (the theoretical extension of an incomplete partition into a fully walled area) thereby creating an “enclosure” that satisfies Sukkah requirements. Due to the opaque nature of the example illustrating the different opinions, one Sage (Rav Huna) uniquely defined the nature of the dispute. Here, the Talmud effectively disproves his supposition; ultimately providing remarkable clarity regarding the theorem of these virtual partitions. (Talmud tractate Sukkah 4b)
