The birth of the five worlds:
(i) Adam Kadmon
Part II
(ii) Atzilut
(iii) Beria
(iv) Yetzira
(v) Assiya
is actually the realization of the five Sefirot: Keter, Hochma, Bina, Zeir Anpin,
and Malchut, which were in Malchut itself.
The spreading of the worlds from Above to Below matches the progressive
increase of the Aviut of the four desires or phases from 0 to 4.
The worlds are like a sphere surrounding Malchut. As an analogy, you can
picture a man surrounded by spheres and using his organs of sensation to
perceive only the sphere that is closest to him: the World of Assiya.
