The Power Derivatives

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely- But how? It all depends who is in power and how the power is being used and for what purpose it is being used. It is good to have a giant’s power but it is tyrannical to use it like a giant. Power in itself is neither good nor bad, but how it is being put into use, can only justify its nature and behavior.
The meaning of “Power” varies with respect to its types, uses, and users. There are three major types of Powers which affect our soul, mind and body rest are its ramifications. These are;
1. The Ultimate Power. (Divine Power)
2. The Super Natural Power. (Giants, Ghosts)
3. The Mundane Power. (Power used by Humans)
The Ultimate Power (Divine Power)
The concept of Ultimate Power is more sublime and a bit difficult to conceive but it has a permanent everlasting nature. It does exist and no one can deny its existence and the role it plays in our lives. It is the only Unique Power having no parallel in this entire universe because he is one in nature, unmatched, and we call him God, Allah and Eeshwar in various language or dialects. He controls rest of the power exists in this universe, he is unbeatable and nobody can destroy him. He holds absolute controls over all powers of the universe, not a single movement of micro seconds can be done against his will and wish. He holds absolute control and command of all powers at work in this universe.
He is the creator of everything in this universe, stars, moons, planets, earth, galaxies, suns, solar systems, atoms, humans, animals, matter and elements, space, dark matter, black holes, nova, super nova, galaxies, galactic clusters, cluster groups, space, air, insects, reptiles, micro orgasm, brain, soul no matter you name anything you will find this power at work. His every creation is unique and different in nature even under the same class and category. Let us take humans first; all humans are genetically different all over the world and not a single human match with other in habits, in behavior, in appearance, in color and complexion, and all are having brains but everybody thinks differently. Similarly you consider any class, group or category you will observe similar varying properties in each class or category.
He has his own hierarchy and a unique system of reporting with all its checks and balances which is necessary to run a mega organizational structure. He is all knowing and nothing is hidden from him. He has a team of workers, deputed to perform various activities, known as Angles. The chain of commands begins from the top which is being executed by the deputed workers accordingly and there is no concept of disobeying the orders. It is always a “YES” and there is no concept of “NO” there, because it is an absolute “Chain of Command” of an Ultimate Divine Power ruling the UNIVERSE.
The Super Natural Power (Giants, Ghosts, Spirits)
Just like humans this class or category is also submissive to Ultimate Power (Divine Power). It has its own working domains, colonies, ways of life and working methodology not visible to every human eye. Although they are living among the humans but due to their special appearance with different body chemistry and formation, our mind is unable to conceive them. They are more powerful than humans and can maneuver their power skills, tactics and commands in a more versatile manner in order to capture their enemies or opponents. They excel in numbers than humans and residing not only on the earth but also occupying air and space, which a human brain cannot even imagine.
They do have positive and negative interaction with humans and the later uses specialized means and sources to control and harness this Super Natural Power which can be utilized in both ways to benefit and to destroy any thing existing on this planet. This domain of power usually remains defensive and repulsive unless an act of aggression is being committed against them or any act interfering and violating their jurisdiction or space, usually by humans not knowing their location or populating area. Some of us do not believe in their existence but our holy books like Quran and Bible do mention of this class and the practice of exorcism has further substantiated their deniable presence in this universe.
The Mundane Power (Power used by Humans)
This is the third tier of Power troika where power gets derived by the humans in most practical and applied manner. The concepts like “Power Corruption” and “Absolute Power Corruption” can be best observed and tested within this class where absolute power corrupts absolutely and giant’s power is used like a giant, these concepts are almost non-available in the first two tiers of Power Derivatives. The reason is, perhaps the concept of “Choice” among the humans and the “Brain” they possess, which can work in both way, the positive and the negative with all its complexities and thinking ability. The brain does play a role in the second tier but it is found more refined and tilted towards positive nature which works in a less destructive manner as compared with human brain. With choices and options the human brain has become more flexible in opting out for the right and wrong methods to succeed in life and its hunger for Power has reshaped it to adopt aggressive attitude to get Absolute Control of the things on this planet earth.
The rapidly changing power structure under this domain is reshaping itself in a more progressive manner and the various concepts of power management have transformed into a new version, giving Power a new meaning in the 21st Century. The renowned Chinese revolutionary leader Mao Tse-tung once said “Power grows out of the barrel of the gun” and with the Industrial Revolution the concepts like “Money” and “Wealth” became the base line for every existing power structure and now “Knowledge itself is a power”. The power vortex seems to be shifting over a period of time and a new system of creating wealth based no longer on muscles but on mind is taking place.
Sir Winston Churchill once said that “Empires of the future are empires of the mind” and today that observation has come true. The Power of Knowledge has superseded all other powers disintegrating their old structure which previously held the world together. This disintegration process is taking place at every level of our human society and one can observe it happening in the markets, shopping ares in schools, in banks, in offices, hospitals, corporate sectors, labor unions, and homes. The office managers and supervisors have observed that the workers no longer take orders blindly; they ask questions and demand answers. Military officers are learning the same thing about their troops. Police chiefs are having similar vibes from cops, and the teachers facing the same issues from their students.
Knowledge, violence (muscles power) and wealth are the major sources of power in human society and relationship among them or various combinations of these, define the role of power in our society. The manner these sources are put into use to achieve the desired goals weather negative or positive, decide the nature and behavior of power at work. Not a single micro unit or mega unit is protected from power play including every individual, companies, corporation and governments where power is used ruthlessly like a giant to achieve the absolute control and management of the afore mentioned respective power structures and concerns.
The use of knowledge, violence and wealth to make people perform in a given way and its application to control behavior will be a never ending activity from cradle to cremation and none of the human society is escaped from it.
All powers will be destroyed at the end, in the similar manner it began with a Big Bang.

Modification – Knowledge, Power, Wisdom

By now, if you actually read past the title, you probably are already familiar with some of the specifications for a loan modification. You probably understand the basic guidelines and standards in order to qualify. You are probably facing a financial hardship, money is short, while you are scrapping by month to month (maybe “scrapping by” is under exaggerating your circumstance). According to your present knowledge and understanding for a modification to be offered you qualify on all accounts. Then, why has it been so difficult to receive or negotiate with your lender? This article will appear very elementary, however it is not to insult anyone’s intelligence but to make sure there is no misunderstandings with what is being written.
For common ground let us define the terms “knowledge,” “power,” and “wisdom.”
1. Knowledge: the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association or the fact or condition of being aware of something accompanied by the range of one’s information or understanding
2. Power: the ability to act or produce an effect. Power also can be defined as possession of control, authority, or influence over other.
3. Wisdom: knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.
Let us focus on Knowledge for the moment. Our knowledge in any particular field will determine our efforts, our frustration and ultimately our success or failure. With any endeavor the more knowledge we have the more confident our approach. Let us not though equate knowledge with conceit or arrogance. The first question you must ask yourself is, “What is my knowledge regarding the qualifications for a modification? The second question I should ask, “What is my knowledge regarding the process of a modification when contacting my lender?” Another question a person could ask themselves is “How long does a modification typically?” If a person is unable to answer these question confidently then the next question is obvious, “Where do I get more information regarding the standards, process, and procedures of a loan modifications?”
Power. For this article let us focus on the italicized portion of the definition previously mentioned, “influence over others”. When applying for a modification an individual will need to exercise (wisdom remember is the judgment as to action, or putting our knowledge into action) their familiarity pertaining to lender processes for a modification. This relates to the first question mentioned for individuals to assay their knowledge regarding a modification. People can only act according to their knowledge, even if that knowledge is just contacting your lender for more understanding.
A loan modification is a great benefit to a struggling homeowner in dire needs, while many persons have benefited from their mortgage being accepted and having their monthly mortgage payments reduced. This is not the case for everyone. As such, if you find yourself needing more knowledge to act with power and wisdom, there are choices available to assist. Either you can contact your lender directly; you can hire a professional firm to assist and use their knowledge; you can also seek more information by utilizing ebooks written for home owner’s benefits providing more knowledge regarding consummating a modification.


Business Architecture – The Power of Knowledge Standardisation and Re-Use

One thing everyone on our team has noticed is that whilst the concept of business architecture is not new, it is not exactly in common use either.

We have also noticed that where it is practiced, to a demonstrably good effect, tends to be in the larger national or international organisations, who are often the leaders in their frequently means that, as they have deep pockets and ‘special’ needs, that they typically build their business architectures completely from scratch and to employ expensive consultants to help them do it.

There is nothing what-so-ever wrong with this, but not that many organisations in the grand scheme of things can afford the luxury of doing this work from scratch such that it is tailored 100% to their exact needs. This is a shame as we believe most organisations would benefit from the coordination and common understanding that building and having a business architecture makes possible.

Too many organisations feel that this sort of up-front outlay on ‘thinking things through’ is something they cannot all too often the truth of the matter is just the can’t afford not to do it!

The situation as we see it is simple. The largest, best and most profitable organisations can afford to build business architectures and they benefit accordingly. Smaller or less profitable organisations who could arguably benefit even more from the discipline and structure a business architecture can bring cannot or don’t feel that they can afford it and suffer accordingly.

So the problem from our perspective seems to be how to bridge this affordability gap.

We feel the answer, as has been the case in many other business contexts related to timescale and affordability issues, is to pre-package and re-use the knowledge through standardisation.

There are many examples through history of the winning ways of standardisation, including:

Language, spelling and punctuation so we can communicate more readily;

Mechanical fasteners (e.g. nuts & bolts) to be interchangeable across uses;

Railway lines to enable trains to run on one another’s networks;

Controls of automobiles so we can safely drive different models of car;

Electronic chip modules so that they can be easily used in many different designs.

We could list many more examples, but the above are probably sufficient to make the point about the benefits of pre-packaging and re-use through standardisation!

Yes, standardisation and re-use does mean accepting an approach that is not 100% tailored to you from the outset……although you can still work in this direction if you really feel the and more importantly can cost-justify it.

However, it also means you can get off to a running start, can take only what you need, can modify / extend only what you need and then get on with the business of the knowledge that you are starting work within an integrated structure in which all the key actors fit together and know their respective roles.

Also, for the benefit of our more skeptical , in our experience, depending on personal initiative and serendipity for this degree of coordination and control is not an equally good alternative!

Therefore we strongly support the use of a generic, cross-industry ‘starter’ business architecture. An architecture that to be sure all or most users will find a need to modify to their needs – i.e. delete parts, add parts, extend parts, modify parts, ignore parts, etc – until it is what you need it to be.

But the difference with this approach is that you now will have to hand a solid foundation on which to construct your own business architecture and not just some blank sheets of paper (or screen) with some modeling rules.

The latter being infinitely where to start, where to stop and how do you know if you are doing it right?

Further, we contend, as we do in most things, that the 80/20 Rule (i.e. Pareto Principle) strongly applies to business transformation initiatives.

When you really think about it why should most organisations, other than out of a form of conceit that they are so ‘special’, need or even want to re-invent the wheel of widely accepted business good practice?

We would argue that roughly 80% (give or take) of what most organisations do can be adequately accomplished in fairly standardised ways……think running a payroll system for instance. So re-creating those things falls into the camp of adding only 20% (or less) of the potential business typically just makes it harder to do things like outsource non-core activities or buy standard software!

Then there is the 20% (again, give or take) of what organisations do that are, and should be, unique to them……think ways particular to you through which you achieve high customer satisfaction rates. You DO NOT want to standardise is what sets you apart and differentiates you from your competition. This is where the 80% (or more) of the potential business value lives.

To us, common sense dictates (or, more accurately, shouts) that you should spend as little time, money or effort on bedding in the standard 80% of things you do every day as you reasonably can. This is so that you can spend as much time, money and effort as possible on the really important 20% that makes your organisation unique and special to your customers and other key stakeholders!

This is, by the way, quite a powerful argument for NOT undertaking to do 100% tailored business architectures as brought to you by very expensive consultants. It does in fact (surprise, surprise) support our view that starting from something that is already pretty in some cases good enough, and modifying it as your situation and opportunities dictate is a very pragmatic, cost-effective and attractive way to proceed.

We truly and sincerely believe that the only thing most organisations really need to give up to benefit from our approach is any conceit they may have that everything they do is ‘special’ and cannot be standardised or based on the re-use of knowledge to any significant extent.

We have news for those who think this by the way.

In our extensive experience of advising on business transformations and business architectures to organisations around the just ain’t so. Not even in the largest and most specialised of global players!

The Power of Satan is Dismissed

Lets begin with knowledge. Why? Because Jesus built his church upon knowledge. As a matter of fact this is the only church that Jesus built. OK. So now you can understand that knowledge must be a primarily important  factor?  But wait. Is there such a thing as secret knowledge? If so, Where is it and how do you get it? God is all knowing. God teaches man through man. Man is the teacher of man. God sent prophets, who were men of flesh and blood, to show man the path to eternal bliss. Jesus was a man. By his own words the son of man. Wait. Does that mean we are like the prophets? Are we like Jesus? Yes. We are all Children of God.

” Of All Men, Born of woman, From Adam Till John the Baptist, No One is Greater Than John. Although I Say to You, He Who Finds the Kingdom of thy Father, They Will Become Greater Than John the Baptist…”        – Jesus  –

“What You Do to the Very Least of Your  Brothers You Do to Me…”  –  Jesus  –

Jesus spoke of unity, a brotherhood among men. Gods light is in all men. ” A house divided cannot stand…” The evil is that which keeps men apart from his soul, and his brother. You have a choice. You can allow evil to control your life, or you can control your own life. God has given you a mind, which is controlled by you and no one else.

Feel the power that God has given to you. Reach for your soul, let it grow and let it show. You will see all your earthly challenges diminished and eventually disappear. Earthly sins will no longer exist, as they are born from fear. At this point man will be a great contribution to the Universe”
