You asked at the end of your attached message: What is the spirit? That which gives wholeness?
The spirit is what is normally not seen, the connections in the darkness, the now's past, or the realization of how we are so dependent on each other - the 'why' behind statement; love your neighbor (and enemy) as yourself. If it is left unconnected, we all experience the loss of the potential which is everpresent but hidden, we are left without the love that we can find peace in.
The wholeness is both the spirit and the flesh, the forms and their connections.
In the 'unfolding =..= cohering' list, the connections are the spirit perpetual working to unfold Everything's structure into God's will.
BTW, this suggests a slight rearrangement in the last two on the list: Everything's structure = God's will Everything's choice = God's command
Closer semantics, from my view... The reason for this is the subtle difference in 'will' and 'choice'; where the true structure of everything is God's will and everything's truest choice is God's command. In reality, most people do not have the spirit with them, they miss the many connections that make everything possible. I'd even go as far as to say: God's will and command brings forth God's truest Love, in the unfolding between them and in their coherence humans can experience the peace and glory of Love's true nature... Quality/Potental is manifested (coherence) as glory found only in Love.
I think the blindness to reality (seeing the spirit=connections, God=whole, love=want-of-coherence, etc.) comes from our fear of losing it all and the danger inherent in change... The only thing I wanted was to find/create something 'new' and with my single 'want' I had lost the want for anything else; thus I have nothing to lose and can see - since I had already lost everything and am just lost searching for everything's new beginning through every old connection.
Haplessly... They are just words to me, verberated harmonics within an empty mind.......... I hope you can gain something from them!

This is what I find so troubling; my goal was to reach into the deepest depths of knowledge and bring everything to light, regardless of any person's purity or clarity they would be able to see and use it all... At this very point I have always been lost between oblivion and paradise; the coherence of humanity seems so capable and ready, yet I am so weak and so easily lost.

I have hesitated for many reasons; sometimes because my own designs had flaws and I sought even more potential from better designs that could handle even more extremes, other times the hesitation was only from fear, the locked path which stood gated and far away my mind, until I let thoughts settle and worked on other problems which let me find the keys and wander back.
Luckily, I still see progress in the world and in it I see hope, slowly and in the right direction but ever so painfully slow.
I guess its all apart of my perspective: Within language and metaphors we can share the world of hope, beyond them we can barely dream of better days and of more sanity. All I ever wanted was to create something *new*.

I find the divisions almost impossible now, they seem so "fake" to my mind; I say that because the moments that separate them also connect them, at least in my mind. Having zero perspectives, to me, is like sitting on the inflection point of time; everything is, everything accelerates, everything connects, every last piece that is viewed as 'separate' is the only wrong, and humans currently cannot see that they do that to almost everything - they are apart of our growth and in them we hide, until we see something and form connections, creating life where once only barren voids were.

Yes, very close to this... The 'zero perspectives' twisted my mind to its braking point several times, already, and in some ways I think I'd be happier if I'd never found it. Maybe, ever so improbable, I'll get away with leaning every perspective towards the good and letting humans learn the rest only after knowing where it all leads, no matter how impossible the odds of getting there are - progress forwards is after all the only direction to go...
Its amazing how improbable our own existence is, though only because of perfection it is possible at all, and to think that we sometimes value it so little and forget so easily of its enduring qualities... I hope it works out for the best!
