Response to Yes...
..How do you understand the proper usage of word Echad- collective one?
No doubt about it, Moses was correct in his usage of ECHAD by applying it to TWO BEINGS becoming one. But you are introducing a new usage by applying it to only ONE BEING - based on your immediate post!????
Echad does NOT applied to a distinctions WITHIN one entity. Example: You may draw ONE circle with three distinct colors WITHIN but that can hardly be called collective one because the entity (ie., circle) remains one.
Collective one or compound unity can clearly be applied to at least TWO BEINGS as did Moses and not to ONE BEING as you wish to. If so, then that would be a misapplication of your own view. Unless of course you will agree that there are three separate persons in the Trinity or there are three beings in the Trinity then a collective one is possible. But in your view, the Trinity is only ONE BEING, neither the persons are separate. Therefore, you continue to misapply the proper useage of the word "ECHAD" as Moses had shown you otherwise.
