The apparent inconsistency of this account had been assigned, by earlier thinkers as Maimonides himself, to the fact that God is beyond the knowable and all comprehension, and nonetheless creation was ex nihilo, especially in the Zohar. According to Sarug, the Platonic conception of the emergence of conferred existence, that involves some kind of presence in the original unit, is based on an act of the divine will, a tenet that endures in Gate of Heaven, even if Luria openly manifested his rejection to a Neoplatonic procession, in order to introduce the clues of a scarcely veiled acosmism.

The ṣimṣum or shrinking, prior to the emanation, is also conceivable as metaphorical, as well as the production of the multiple that struggled to reach restoration after the breaking. Unlike some other disciples of Luria, Sarug wanted to state, through the demonstration of the intelligibility of the move from simplicity to multiplicity, that this was linked, according to Luria, to divine will. Sarug inherited the doctrines of the rupture of the vessels and their reestablishment as parṣufim or humanoid countenances, and Luria’s closeness to acosmism is linked, according to his disciple’s teachings, with a Neoplatonic conception of the emanation.
