That's fine as a description of the Emperor outside of the context of the Tree of Life. But what does any of the above have to do with the 15th Path and the relationship between Chokmah and Tiphareth. How does the Cosmic Will of Chokmah influence the sephira Tiphareth via the Emperor?

Bear in mind that the 15th Path is still way above the sphere of the personality.
