Think of the Oversoul as the Qabalistic Adam Kadmon; a holographic archetype from which humanity generates male and female beings. The Adam Kadmon is the Divine having taken on etheric substance with humanity fully taking on material substance; divided into male and female forms. The Divine itself, first manifests as Kether (the Crown) on the Tree-of-Life. This is also referred to as the L.V.X. or light, which Emerson refers to as the Oversoul.
