These three do not equate with the Kabbalist theosophy, as 'Thought' is
not itself 'Wisdom' and 'Understanding' is passive, not active in relation
to 'Wisdom' but active in relation to FOUR, "Chesed" - equivalent to
'Mercy' 'Justice' and 'Love'. Each Kabbalistic downward spiral into
manifestion is the effect of that which precedes it, and the cause of that
which follows it.
