Let me rephrase and hopefully not bumble:

They are different aspects but the Son is God, not of a lesser order 
and there are not two Gods, or three including the Holy Spirit.  It's 
God as the Father, God as the Son, and God as Love, but always the big 
G.  Not Zeus, Apollo, and Eros(first one to my mind) though I guess GW 
is tying all gods to the Godhead (isn't that CS Lewis' argument? 
Paganism paving the way?).  But that's the analogy I was shooting for 
and the only way I can see that working in the corporeal world is 
through Pas, Typhon and Silk having the same base identity.
