English: Malva class.
The name Malvidae or Malvids is used in different ways. Originally in Apg2 it was for the Orders Brassicales, Malvales and Sapindales. They were then called Eurosids 2. In Apg3 the small Orders of Crossomateles, Huerteales and Picramniales were added. The name Malvidae is used for this group in the restricted sense now. Geraniales and Myrtales are associated with Malvidae. They are seen as a sister group, allied with Malvidae but not belonging to the core Malvidae. Sometimes they are also called Malvidae, extended Malvidae.
In the Plant theory the name Malvanae is used for the Class and Malvidae for the Subclass. The Order Santalales is added to the Malvidae. Saxifragales is added to the Class Malvanae. The Family Halogaraceae is split off from the Saxifragles and placed in its own Order Halogarales.
Series of the Malvanae
1. Hydrogen series: Haloragidae, Halogarales; unable to act, to be creative, artistic or imaginative.
2. Carbon series: Saxifragidae, Saxifragales: have a conflict between being just a normal person and having a high society pretension.
3. Silicon series: Geraniidae, Geraniales; they have a conflict between their normal family and their own special, unique and artistic qualities.
4. Iron series: Myrtidae, Myrtales: they have a conflict between the community, their work and their own special, unique and artistic qualities.
5. Silver series: Malvidae; they feel special and unique and want to bring that into the world with art, science, sport, becoming a celebrity.
The main theme of the Malvanae is that of the Silver series. They want to be special, unique and wonderful, so that they will get a higher position in society. They try to become special in art, science, sport, politics, religion or management, or whatever makes them special and acknowledged.
Culture is an important issue. They can be contributing to culture in the form of art and science, philosophy and politics, religion and sport. That makes them distinguished.
But it can also be in a situation where culture puts limits on them, where they feel put down and restricted due to cultural rules and obligations. They can be a victim of cultural or religious systems like the caste system in India, the women’s position in the Islam, Christianity or Confucianism.
They have a need for show, performance. They have an aversion to showing their weakness. This often makes it difficult in consultations to find out what the problem really is. It gives the doctor a feeling of confusion, not knowing where he is. It also shows in their aversion to being on video during the consultation. They do not want their case to be shown. This is an expression of the Silver series quality.
