so if i understand you properly this oversoul or overself is
the same as what is called Adam Kadmon or ADM KDMN.

very clearly stated. from your understanding, therefore, are
there reliable ways to get into touch with, and become more
aware of what this path includes? if so, what are they?
is there 'more than one route' to this touch with universal
self? i.e. if one misses a part of the path to move closer
are there likely to be other opportunities to make headway
toward the same progress?
also, is there a way that these paths may conflict or in
some way intersect so as to obstruct one another? can two
true wills be at odds with one another? is there anything
about true wills that are destiny-like in character? i.e.
is what Crowley wrote about the true will being somehow
unopposable because the force of the universe is behind
you accurate, from your understanding?

could you explain more about what this 'branching' is and
how people might be on 'different branches of the same
neshamah'? is it related at all to genetics? or is there
some other more complex relationship between people such
as is described by karma or the intertwining of lives?

how does the psyche (mind?) of an individual differ
from or relate to a person's neshamah?

I lost you here. what is a sitra-achra? where does this
term come from?
