(2.2) 0:1.2 DEITY is personalizable as God, is prepersonal and superpersonal in ways not altogether comprehensible by man. Deity is characterized by the quality of unity — actual or potential — on all supermaterial levels of reality; and this unifying quality is best comprehended by creatures as divinity.
So there is Deity that is personalizable as God. That almost makes it sound like Deity is antecedent to personalized God??
The Supreme seems to be the finite personalization of Deity.
(2.11) 0:1.11 The finite level of reality is characterized by creature life and time-space limitations. Finite realities may not have endings, but they always have beginnings — they are created. The Deity level of Supremacy may be conceived as a function in relation to finite existences.
Interesting that they call it the "Deity level of Supremacy". This paragraph seems to suggest that the finite level is the Deity level of Supremacy. So than perhaps because the fundamental characteristic of Deity is unity this would mean that unity in the finite level of reality is the Deity of Supremacy? So if the finite unity of our planet and of our world is related to the Deity level of the Supreme, than do we not have a responsibility to not disrupt that unity? Hmmm
(2.9) 0:1.9 6. Supreme — self-experiential and creature-Creator-unifying Deity. Deity functioning on the first creature-identificational level as time-space overcontrollers of the grand universe, sometimes designated the Supremacy of Deity.
(3.2) 0:1.15 Deity is the source of all that which is divine. Deity is characteristically and invariably divine, but all that which is divine is not necessarily Deity, though it will be co-ordinated with Deity and will tend towards some phase of unity with Deity — spiritual, mindal, or personal.
(3.3) 0:1.16 DIVINITY is the characteristic, unifying, and co-ordinating quality of Deity.
It seems that the goal for all organism is to attain cosmic unity, and for us perhaps we attain unity with the Supreme and each other?
15 - (58:6.8) Through almost endless cycles of gains and losses, adjustments and readjustments, all living organisms swing back and forth from age to age. Those that attain cosmic unity persist, while those that fall short of this goal cease to exist.
