As Miriam van Reijen clearly continues to point out: Spinoza was not a fatalist. Determinism does not imply that the outcome will be negative. But of course you know that Eric.

It seems a core point of the work is the creation of a ethical space that is created by council. This council is outside of a strict necessitarian causal chain. Even if we do not interpret Spinoza as a fatalist, an error I have made in the past, the issue still seems to be making a procession of neutral phenomena , a kinda base actuality open to things from the imagination. This is done not in the current moment but over time through the action of council that is determinant. This determination seems to be treated as a creative act, maybe a dialog?
