I’m trying to understand why Malkuth is called Assiah, the lower trinity Yetzirah, the middle trinity Briah and the upper trinity Atziluth.
1. I thought that in each of the four worlds there are 10 sepiroth, how come the four worlds are represented by 10 sephirot only and not 40 sephiroth? (That is, 10 spheres in each world)
2. To ascend, would one need to attain all the 10 spheres in each world?
3. If yes, how does one combine this with raising the 7 serpents of fire, light and the logoic initiations? Shouldn’t there be 40 ascencions? (That is 10 for each world)
