yeah, that's how I see it. Except, I kinda think Thanos pulled Loki from this void, opposed to Loki stumbling onto him. Other than that, I do agree with you on this
though, the whole "if the tesseract is kept from us, you think you know pain" that whole bit wouldn't that threat sorta of get into your head that, okay, I am being mannipulated
