Also, I have the impression that the dialectic (that I saw in 3-74) represented two processes at two levels:

(1) The disintegrating "splitting" of entropic time. This would be world and would pervade all creation.
(2) At the same time (so to speak) at a higher level it would be God versus Satan, with God as the wiser horn who always wins through enantiodromia.

Now, this winning through wisdom points to the Cosmic Christ, since Christ is Holy Wisdom, St. Sophia, Hagia Sophia, Wisdom personified. Also Christ is God ("Kai Theos en ho logos"). Therefore, if this be true, perhaps although I did see world in 3-74 I saw world as Christ; world becoming the Cosmic Christ (the macrometasomakosmos). Then Christ combatting Satan in the dialectic is God Himself: the Christian God of love, combatting Satan. This would explain why one horn of the dialectic was wiser than the other, and, despite the power of the other, always won (through its wisdom; this is what produces the ceaseless enantiodromia). By the way; this fits in with Jakob Bohme's vision of the Yes-No dialectic of God who passes through stages, and that the negative or "No" sides are what we experience as evil. In my opinion this is God as the Cosmic Christ.
A Trinitarian view of God and Christ being of one substance must be held in order to understand this.
The arguments for Valis being the Cosmic Christ are not conclusive but they are compelling. I call my own attention to the typed pages of 11-16-80 which preceeded by only a short while the theophany of 11-17-80. They were in fact the last thing I wrote before the theophany.
