>> First, you have said that the Greater Selves project and condense their awarenesses into Individual Selves, who inhabit the time-space realm which results from the projection process. I assume that every Greater performs his projection "by himself" (the other way around would have no difference between that joint Gathering of Greaters acting as one and Kether, somewhat eliminating the need for their existence). <<
Well, yes and no, it's not quite that simple. :) Each Greater Self is responsible, so to speak, for the Individuals that it projects and each of the projected Individuals is an aspect of a specific Greater Self. However, the Greaters exist in the non-sequential eternal realm. This means that even though their projections experience separateness, the Greaters themselves (in addition to experiencing separateness *through* their Individual projections), experience togetherness, commonality and an integrated awareness that is infinite and which includes the Unity/Kether. To say that the Greaters are just one thing or just one level of awareness is to underestimate how infinitely encompassing their awareness truly is.
>> So, if each Greater Self performs his projection individually, and each projection results in the creation of a time-space universe, how come the time-space realm all the Individual Selves descend into is the same one (the one all of us currently inhabit)? <<
All of the infinite number of projections by all of the infinite number of Greater Selves, cause *one* time-space universe. As I said, all of the Greaters are just as interconnected as they are discrete. Their Work is a collective or group work.
>> Second, by the principle of correspondence, would a very advanced person be able to mentally mimic the process of creation? What I mean by that, is to project from himself new Greater Selves (not stemming from Kether or his own Greater/Individual Self, but from his Personal Self), having them project Individual Selves into a new time-space realm (created from/within that person's mental level), who will manifest as autonomic Personal Selves in that new physical world. Those Personas will exist in a level of time-space "one notch" below the one of that creating person, so that from their perspective, that creating person will be infinite. Essentially, to create a new Tree within, using Malkuth of the Main Tree as the Kether of the new one. <<
An individual cannot create a Greater Self. The only entity that can create a Greater Self is The One Self or Unity. Thus when a magician wishes to create as you suggest, an eternal mental body which will then condense to the level of physicality, the magician must first merge their awareness with The Unity. Of course, this means that the magician's actions are no longer *personal* and "wanting" to create an eternal mental body is no longer a part of the equation. :)
