In the spirit of the original Four-words puzzle by Prem, and all those that followed.

My first completely overshadows anything you see.
My second's used extensively to mean extensively.
My third are pithy aphorisms commonly dispersed.
My fourth's what you'll be feeling if Deusovi solves this first.
My fifth's predominantly white, though legend says it's golden.
My sixth is what will keep the world consistently unfolding.

My whole's a square that's six by six with letters in each cell.
There is no difference in the words read flat or vertical.

How about

D W A R F S
W I D E L Y
A D A G E S
R E G R E T
F L E E C E
S Y S T E M

EDIT: Mooooooooooom, do I have to explain every line? FINE.

My first completely overshadows anything you see.

aye, something that dwarfs everything could be said to overshadow it

My second's used extensively to mean extensively.

widely, even. Judge I object to having to explain this one, res ipsa loquitur

My third are pithy aphorisms commonly dispersed.

adages is another word for aphorisms

My fourth's what you'll be feeling if Deusovi solves this first.

well, yes, I would be regretful if the god of false-egg-plurals had beaten me to it, but they did not

My fifth's predominantly white, though legend says it's golden.

fleece is white, but there's that whole Jason thing

My sixth is what will keep the world consistently unfolding.

systems are the logic by which things can be said to run

    $\begingroup$ I was hoping @Deusovi didn't solve this first, since it might invalidate the clue for #4... :P $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 20 '16 at 20:41
  • $\begingroup$ I'm curious which one you got first; I thought a couple might be too easy. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jan 20 '16 at 20:44
  • $\begingroup$ @GentlePurpleRain 5 came to me really quickly, then either 3 or 2, and the rest unfolded from there. $\endgroup$ – question_asker Jan 20 '16 at 20:45
