The Ancient of Days has three heads. He reveals himself in three archetypes, all three forming but one. He is thus symbolized by the number Three. They are revealed in one another. [These are:] first, secret, hidden ‘Wisdom’; above that the Holy Ancient One; and above Him the Unknowable One. None knows what He contains; He is above all conception. He is therefore called for man ‘Non-Existing’ [Ayin]'”[42]

Source (Zohar, iii. 288b).

Commentary : Non existing does not mean nothing (ayin). Rather this unknowable one is the essence of all things. The unknowable is the secret hidden wisdom, is the holy ancient one and of course unknowable. The three are names of the one. While this seems far away, it is not , it is as close to you as your next breath.
