Synopsis for "Love and the Law"

Sophie Bangs and Barbara Shelley continue their journey and enter Netzach, which is an underwater realm or an ocean of emotion. They both become overwhelmed by memories of the past, Sophie with her own birth and Barbara remembering the death of her husband.

With such strong emotions they both surrender to "Love." By doing this, they are able to swim back to shore, however, once they're on land again, they encounter Death who quickly dismembers them. They realize that they have experienced only a "metaphorical death" and continue, once again, down the path.
