On Passover the redemption was only through an upper awakening (meaning that G-d had to wake us up) for we hadn’t yet received the Torah. Even though we are taught that on Passover we receive tremendous new insight, nevertheless we still do not merit to receive the light of keter* which arranges and straightens out our intellect.
*The G-dly crown and highest level of 10 sefirot or Divine emanations.
** Because essentially leavened and unleavened bread contain the same ingredients, only that leavened bread had time to rise, this extra air represents G-dly concealment.
