“Revolving from below to above; her braided chariots whirling” (Zohar 1:233b).
“Come and see: When it arose in the will of the blessed Holy One to create the world, He generated a single flame of a lamp of impenetrable darkness and blew spark against spark. It darkened and ignited. From the recesses of the abyss He generated a single drop and joined them as one, thereby creating the world.
The flame ascended, crowned on the left the drop ascended, crowned on the right. Culminating in one another, they exchanged places, one to this side, one to that, the descendent ascending, the ascendent decending, both intertwining. Between them issued רוּחַ שְׁלִים (ruaḥ shelim), perfect spirit, so those two sides turned into one; it was placed between them—they were crowned with one another. Then שָׁלֹם (shalom), peace, prevailed above, peace below, and the rung stabilized. ה (He) was crowned with ו (vav), ו (vav) with ה (he) then ה (he) ascended, bound in a perfect bond” (Zohar 1:87a).
“Behold שֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר (shesh mashzar), twisted linen (Exodus 26:1), are the שֵׁשׁ (shesh), Six, Days of Creation which include the Ten Utterances and the thirty-two paths which are the thirty-two [iterations of] אֱלֹהִים (Elohim) in the Work of Creation” (Tiqqunei ha-Zohar 12b).
