The physical universe is a mixture. It is a meeting-place where G‑d meets together (as it were) with man, the select of all creatures; yet it is also ginat egoz,1 "a garden of nuts," the word egoz having the numerical equivalent of cheit, "sin." G‑d gives man the capacity to choose freely, that man may choose for himself a path in life.
