Action is described
without denoting it
as if it is whole.

The first form is 'radiance' but requires 'differentiation' to be understood as such.

the second form is 'love' but requires 'power' to be understood as such.

the third form is 'foresight' but requires 'knowledge' to be understood as such.

Makes sense. But we must alter the first two to exclude the intellect.

Malkuth
Earth
(senses, perception)

Yesod
Base
(feeling, self-relating)

and tentatively:

Hod
(interpretation, clarification)

Netzach
(imagining, bestowing value)

So the intent is to create a devil?
Gees, we already have the Semitic-devil and the more recent White-devil, do we really need another?

It seems like you think that the devil is implicit, inherent in the senses and in self-relating. Is this what you've been saying all along? If this is so, your purpose is exorcism. A driving out of the very mechanisms whereby the world has come to exist.

Value ontology does the reverse -- it values/estimates/interprets nature and the mechanisms whereby it has come to exist in the terms whereby we understand the human virtues -- in terms of values, valuing, bestowing value. In this understanding, valuing as a wise king or artistic genius does it, is not fundamentally different from what an atom does, it is only a more multifarious and complicated form thereof. Similarly, the "blind instincts" do nothing but valuing in terms of self-value, where this self-value is established by the very root of their being, their self-valuing. It is this root that is represented in the tree of life by both ends, Kether and Malkuth, Crown and Kingdom.

The Tree is a circular abstraction of life, not a linear one. It can be interpreted and used as linear -- in both directions -- but even then only with the understanding that the alpha carries in itself the omega, and vice versa.
How else could the omega result from the alpha, if it was not already implicit in it? This is the case with all definitional logic, all logics where one step follows naturally out of the other.
