Thank you very much for sharing your insights on the Kohanim's Blessing.There is an explanation of the Sages which states that there are two grades of unconditional love, where the 1st one is the unconditional love, which still depends on our perception of what is Good and what is Evil, and there is the Highest grade of unconditional love, which is independent from our understanding of what is Good and what is Evil, so the 2nd and the 3rd parts of the Kohanim's Blessing, as brilliantly is explained in the article, DO correspond to this two grades of the Unconditional Love.There are some "problems" with the pictures used in the video though:1. While a child is in the womb of the mother, at the beginning he/she is the head up and before the birth he/she turns head down, the picture in the video shows a pathological case of a child coming up his/her head before the birth.2. trying to depict the Light of the Creator is a very difficult task and should be thought over not to look like any known to many of us objects from our earthly life, though the color of the disk depicting the Light of the Creator is presented in different colors, its FORM DOES resemble the sun and it may be misleading for some viewers.
