The Division Between Upper and Lower Waters
The separation between water and water became the separation of the upper heavens and the lower heavens. Certainly Scripture is telling us something of our physical reality, but even more about our spiritual reality. Heavens in Hebrew is shamayim, which it is taught means "there is water", "fire and water", "loaded with water", etc. (Breishit Rabbah 4:7). Water, that which makes our planet unique in the ability to support life.
At a physical level, water is made of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms bound with strong ionic bonds. The atomic number of oxygen is 8, that of hydrogen is 1. The sum of the atomic numbers in one molecule of water is 10.
Thus the very essence of water is bound in the completeness of the number 10, the number of sfirot in the Tree of Life. Through these 10 sfirot the spiritual power of Infinity is filtered down to this plane of existence. The Zohar is considered by many to be the most important work describing the interactions of these sfirot. Of the mystics who taught and interpreted the Zohar, the Holy Ari, also known as the Arizal, was one of the most innovative in his understanding of the Tree of Life. Many today consider his teachings to be almost revelation like in their innovative interpretation of the Zohar.
