According to this understanding as applied to the Trinity, rhe first dialectical move is God the Father's showing of himself in creation, an act in which the fundamentally miraculous appears commonplace; the second is the begetting of the incarnate Son, in which that ordinariness is monstrously (prodigiously) disfigured and thus transfigured by way of a death; and the third is the sending of the Spirit in which everything returns to normal, but with the death remaining at the dialectic's crux. Where Zizek identifies the economic Trinity with the immanent Trinity (once you have accounted for God at work in the world, you have finished accounting for God), Milbank keeps the two aspects of the Trinity in tension.
