Psychic being evolving from within the manifestation

The perception of Atman and the experience of Psychic being evolving from within the manifestation are quite different:
“The true being may be realised in one or both of two aspects—the Self or Atman and the soul or Antaratman, psychic being, Chaitya Purusha. The difference is that one is felt as universal, the other as individual supporting the mind, life and body. When one first realises the Atman one feels it separate from all things, existing in itself and detached,… When one realises the psychic being, it is not like that; for this brings the sense of union with the Divine and dependence upon It and sole consecration to the Divine alone and the power to change the nature and discover the true mental, the true vital, the true physical being in oneself. Both realisations are necessary for this yoga.” V

That’s nice, but the phrase “the Son of the Purusha” needs qualification; the psychic being is not the son of, say, the manomaya purusha, the mental being, unless you mean the Divine Soul is the father of the psychic being, “directly descended from the Father”. But even then the psychic being is the projection of the central being who supports the evolving psychic being. If the psychic being evolves, does the Son of God also evolve?
