Jewish symbolism is a whole-cloth (tallit) and not a makeshift fabric sewn out of leftover parts. Therefore every single symbol or ritual is a necessary part of the whole-cloth every thread of which is required if the unwinding of each and every thread is going to faithfully reveal what lies beneath. Remove even one symbol and you can destroy the whole world. Which is what secularism has in mind. A Freudian desire for non-being.
Me-tzitzah מציצה comes from tzitzit תציץ. ---- A mem prefix means "from," such that "m-tzitzah" means "from the tzitzit."
As Rabbi Hirsch makes perfectly clear, "tzitz" ציץ means "sprout." -----The tzitzit represent sprouts growing out of the whole-cloth given as a covering by God (see R. Hirsch and R. Kaplan on the relationship between the tallith and the garment given to Adam and Eve as their covering).
The tzitzah is a divine-(techelet) sprout-(tzitz) growing out of the whole-cloth (tallit) given to cover up man's nakedness. Rabbis Hirsch and Kaplan are explicit that the tallith implicates itself as a representation of the clothing given by God to cover man's nakedness after the sin. The tallith is a gift from God designed to represent, in some manner, the covering lost through the sin. -----It's a sign of God's grace and mercy to mankind that even though we gave up our spiritual heritage willingly, God knew we would, and had already provided a mechanism to fix what was broken.
