In one of the nocturnal visions in which the Tzemach Tzedek saw the Alter Rebbe (his grandfather), during the Thirty Days of Mourning for the Alter Rebbe, the latter recited for him the maamar, Al shlosha dvarim. After the maamar the Alter Rebbe said, "If the man emits seed first, she bears a female"1 - that is your mother; "if the woman emits seed first, she bears a male" - that is you.
