If you look up the technicalities of lightning, you'll find that electricity from the upper atmosphere creates steps to the ground in sections called 'leaders', and when contact is finally made with the earth a lightning bolt appears.
This process is not dissimilar from the way earthly leaders come to power. They chart a course through a series of unique steps from their past-before-politics to the point where they find themselves at a country's helm. Once there, what goes on in their lives becomes a complete mystery and most will not divulge details even after their term is complete.
Today I visited Ackeelover Chronicles, where Peter Williams writes, simply because I'm a big fan and I like to see what he's thinking from time to time. Peter is the man behind Stargate's famed bad guy Apophis, highly favoured System Lord, who struck me down with unbearable delight when he became Quantumology's 100th follower.
In his post Buffalo Soldier, Peter alludes to a faint likeness between Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela. Now I can see his point, to a point, but his reference to a "fascinating arc on the global-collective timeline" was what brought me to this train of thought. In keeping with the general swim of universal forces, patterns are created under the leadership of cause and effect, and one of the patterns I've been noticing over the past couple of decades is the speed with which world leaders go grey. This pair of photos shows what happened to Obama in just five years. The same thing happened to John Major, Tony Blair, and Gordon Brown, and it's happening to David Cameron.
Now it's clearly not in Quantumology's quarter to be making comments on politics, so I'll stick to the electromagnetic spectrum instead. There are synergies to be found. In the making of white light, all the colours we can see (and a couple we can't) converge to make a colour that isn't really a colour, it's an amalgam of every colour that is. We see this amalgam as 'white' because this array of colours is reflected, producing an optic of very bright appearance. The opposite optic, black, is exactly the same only in reverse. Instead of reflecting all the colours known to man, black absorbs them.
At the centre of our country's political hearts, we have what are known as 'seats of power'. These power bases are not in the places where politicians gather to debate issues of the realm, but in armed and guarded fortresses where ultimate decisions are cast in stone. The men at work within these fortresses are not public figures, they're not elected and we've no idea who they are. Our public icons take their information from that source. It's fairly evident that some of what our leaders learn is not particularly pleasant, but that's the price you pay for being a country's President or Prime Minister. You don't get to choose what you do when you're supposed to lead a country. They know where you live.
In the USA, you have the White House. In the UK, we have Whitehall. Where aspersions are cast to be whiter than white, it's a fair assumption that the shadows beneath mirror the darker aspects of truth. Such burdens of truth to be carried by elected leaders may be heavier than we can possibly imagine, given that in all disciplines, including science, illusion is all we have to work with in determining reality.
