It is the only a Partzuf by means of which the Light can shine in our world.
We do not see or feel this Light, but it shines and drives us forward.

It should be noted that the Partzuf Atik spreads not only to the Parsa, in
order to pass on Light to other Partzufim of the World of Atzilut, but below
the Parsa as well.
Since Atik is in Tzimtzum Alef, this Partzuf is able to spread everywhere, and
when it is below the Parsa it lights up the souls of the righteous who want to
ascend to the World of Atzilut.
Being in the Worlds of BYA means “giving for the sake of bestowal,” while

Abba ve Ima (Bina) is born, then Partzuf Zeir Anpin, and finally Malchut is
