I have not followed all of this, but Kabalistically I would
perceive Be-ness as the first plane *per se* - it cannot *form*
itself. Be-ing is a condition of *existence* where, from the
Latin [I think] to ex-ist means to stand out (as in bas-relief,
analogously) from a background, in this case, the "ground of
Be-ness" which IS the "Eternal Now."

Confusing, sometimes, I agree .....
