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.
