This is an interesting follow up on your previous post in line with this issue and along with the other posts you have made on Spinoza. It reminds me of Issac Ibn Latif's Sha'ar ha-Shamayim. In it he separates between a level of speculation and a level of true tradition. Eliot Wolfson in Linear Circularity and Kabbalistic Temporality partially explores his claims. Your reading of Spinoza seems to a little bit similar except unlike Ibn Latif's timelessness as strict necessity of representation that is dependent on time, here it is the necessity of the representation of emancipation. Both acquire what seems to be an atemporal function and exist in relation to discursive relations with others but both are seen as verdical.
