The u.b seems to give a new definition of what this word really means. Here is one quote about it. I am just going to throw out some of my initial thoughts on this subject, this is not meant to be gospel or anything like that.

(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.

Nice essay. Not disrupt? Yes, of course. Even help! :)

Isn't the unity of the Supreme a future occurrence of evolutionary growth? How can you disrupt something that hasn't happened yet? I would rather say that we have a responsibility to contribute to power-personality synthesis which will one day grow into the unity of the Supreme Being.

116:1.1 The experience of every evolving creature personality is a phase of the experience of the Almighty Supreme. The intelligent subjugation of every physical segment of the superuniverses is a part of the growing control of the Almighty Supreme. The creative synthesis of power and personality is a part of the creative urge of the Supreme Mind and is the very essence of the evolutionary growth of unity in the Supreme Being.

This quote seems to indicate that there is still unity, but that it is growing. It would seem that we are contributing to the growth of unity.

This is a side topic but it would seem that this unification of power and personality has already taken place in Havona. The Supreme is probably the trickiest aspect of the whole book IMO.

14:6.23.4. The Supreme Being—the evolutionary unification of experiential Deity. The Havona creation is the eternal and perfect proof of the spiritual reality of the Supreme Being. This perfect creation is a revelation of the perfect and symmetrical spirit nature of God the Supreme before the beginnings of the power-personality synthesis of the finite reflections of the Paradise Deities in the experiential universes of time and space.

14:6.24.In Havona the power potentials of the Almighty are unified with the spiritual nature of the Supreme. This central creation is an exemplification of the future-eternal unity of the Supreme.
