Phase 7 is a very special state of being.
Most politicians have an aspect o it. As the ability to lie with a blank face seems to be essential to be a politician. At first sight that looks like a contradiction. At second sight it has a logical aspect. To keep everyone content is essential. Deny your mistakes, hide your true motives as leading principle.
The connection between leaders and phase 7 is central in the the theme of the kings of the animals kingdom: the lion. Or more in general the cats are the kings of the world. But the cats are the carnivores, the ones who kill and eat others to survive, which are Phase 7 qualities.
In the past the idea was that kings should be in Phase 4, the ones at the top, feeling responsible for the world. But in our culture the symbols for kings are lions and eagles, the carnivorous animals, which are in Phase 7.
This quality is in agreement with the phenomenon that leaders tend to be hard and often psychopathic. W only have to think of leaders like Stalin and Hitler. But these days more subtle forma are also present
It looks as if political power needs criminals to do their dirty jobs. It looks as if criminal need too give from their profits to get protection from powerful institutions and governments. The movie the Godfather is a nice example of this connection. The situation in Italy where the maffia is connected strongly to the catholic church and politics is another example.
This edition is about the Boraginales, a very special order. The classification has been difficult and is still in development. The theme is that of special people who have a problem to take their own point of view, but are too pleasing.
We wish you a much reading pleasure,
