As a recovering Catholic, please forgive my ignorance here:
Can someone explain the significance of the "Filioque" as relevant to this discussion?
Genuinely interested. Thanks.
This is a very deep topic, but to me a way of seeing it is to think in terms of sacred geometry, and the addition of the filioque means a turning of the triangle - instead of the upward point and the lower two coming from it (Father on top, unmanifested, and Son and Holy Spirit manifested), you have the base up top (Father and Son), from which a single point proceeds (Holy Spirit).
