If any of the above conditions are breached, I reserve the right to terminate our discourse forthwith, if Iso choose.That being said, I will attempt to answer your questions as honestly and openly as is permissible for me.I will check back and respond as time allows.
: How many generations back does your bloodline extend, or, perhaps more accurately, who doesyour family consider its earliest ancestor in a position of power?
: Our Lineage can be traced back beyond antiquity. From the earliest times of your recorded"history", and beyond, our Family has been 'directing' the 'play' from behind the scenes, in one way oranother. Before the rise and fall of Atlantis. (Yes, that was indeed perfectly real). We are 'born to lead'. Itis part of the design for this current paradigm.
: To what extent has selective breeding been used to preserve the purity of the line? and whatbecomes of children of unapproved unions? (They would naturally still be raised with privilege, but not,perhaps "given the keys to the castle" as it were?)
: The breeding is generally case specific, dependent upon the role that the Family members inquestion are due to grow into. I will touch more on this in answer to the next poster's question that yourephrased.There are no unapproved unions. Our Family will always intermarry between lines, or, what we wouldterm 'Houses'. Marriages are arranged. In all my years alive, I have never seen or heard of a Family
member breaking this code, as far as marriage goes. You do as you are told. One cannot 'join' the Family.One is 'born', or incarnated into it.On the rare instances of a child being born that could be seen as bringing 'difficulties', you are correct inyour premise, that it would be raised as part of the Family, though would not grow up in the house orcommunity of either of its parents.
: If one were to imagine a scale, perhaps as a triangle with Political, Religious and Corporate powerat the three points, how would you categorize the power your family yields? (Balanced? Leaning moretowards one or two than a third? Heavily favoring one of the three above the others?) And has thatposition shifted over time?
: You need to first understand the structure of the Family. In the grand scheme of things, the Line isnot as important as the House, the House, is not as important as the Family. The Family is all. No matterthe House or Line, we are One (truly international) Family.Imagine if you will, a
body. A House would represent a vital organ or body part within the Body itself.Each part has an important role to play in the functioning of the whole, and to each of us, the 'whole'has our undivided loyalty. As I say, many lines, (far more than you are aware of), One Family.Our realms of influence do not fit as comfortably into the three boxes of your triangle as you mayimagine. There are
six disciplines of training within the Family
, and each member of the Family is
