so im writing a paper for seminary on the cosmology of St. Maximus, and I am confused about the thought-wills and the logoi. some sources say they are the same thing, and some sources make a distinction between the two. but if there is a distinction i cant understand what it is. any Maximian scholars out there? thanks.

what's "thought-wills"?

I always considered "logoi" as blueprints of our being.
