In :

thisLayer.content("Group 2").content("Rectangle 1").transform.opacity;

you "get down 6 times" to go from the Layer to the Opacity.
(Layer --> Contents ---> "Group 2" ---> Contents ----> Rectangle 1 ----> Transform ---> Opacity

Hence, the other way round, you need to climb up 6 times to go from the Opacity to the Layer.

One thing to know is that every Shape Group inside a shape layer has a "Contents" and a "Transform"
(similarly to the layer itself having a Contents and a Transform)
The "Contents" step is hidden in the UI though, but it is still there somehow and must be accounted for.
