Gemara: Where was tying done in the Mishkan? Rava said: They would tie things to the stakes that held the tent in place.



Ein Ayah:Tying, in addition to being done in order to bring together different parts, also connects that which is movable with that which is set in place for the long term. This also has a parallel in the philosophical world. There are thoughts that are fleeting and do not have a firm status, and these [can be salvaged] by connecting them to ideas that are set and eternal. These greater ideas that are connected to all thoughts have divine thought at their basis. The place that secures all the ideas is spread out like a tent in the breadth of the soul and its deep ideas. This is hinted at by the gemara’s observation that they would tie things to the stakes of the tent.
