Netzach: Victory/Eternity

Wikipedia: "Netzach is paired with Hod and composes the third group of sephirot, the "tactical" sefirot, meaning that their purpose is not inherent in themselves, but rather as a means for something else.

Understanding the attributes of Netzach and Hod gives us a new perspective into understanding what is happening in the world. No longer do we merely look at face value, and attempt to understand it as such, but we must look at it also in terms of a means to an end.

These sephirot mark a turning point. Where the first two groups of sefirot deal with God's intrinsic will, and what it is that He desires to bestow upon man, these sephirot are focused on man: What is the most appropriate way for man to receive God's message? How can God's will be implemented most effectively?"
