Chief of Staff Bill Daley: Obama’s “man in the center"
By Bernie Quigley
For The Hill on 5/23/11
As photography goes, this one brought the perfect moment. President Obama had ordered the SEALs to descend on the den of Osama bin Laden and kill him. 12 are framed waiting pensively in the War Room, waiting to hear the code phrase, “Geronimo E-KIA” indicating that bin Laden had been killed and the assault successful. And spontaneously and naturally composed by the moment, it was the perfect photograph.
It is always 12, as in Leonardo’s “Last Supper.” The full deck of the zodiac; six yin (three water, three earth), six yang (three air, three fire). But this photo, with the President dressed casually to right of “man in the center” was even more holistically balanced. To the right of “man in the center” - the “power” side, sat the three: Vice President Joe Biden, President Obama and the Air Force general running the show at the computer, which could almost be seen as Captain Kirk’s starship. To the left of “man in the center” are the advisors, including Hillary Clinton and the wise Robert C. Gates; the “spirit” force.
This illustrates the most primary of psychological relationships; three left, three right, with the Transcendent Seventh in the center. This is how a menorah presents the universe and the many Buddhas and Brahmas in the east do as well. In the Hindu, the right hand represents advancing karma, like the positive numbers in math (Vishnu). The left represents receding karma or the negative numbers (Shiva). The “man in the center” is not a man but Brahma, neither man nor woman, neither left nor right, neither one nor the other but all and none.
And in this historic photo, the key ‘three and three’ are balanced, sitting on each side, sloping downward; the world partial, in its parts, made whole by the “man in the center.” Only Brahma/”man in center” is fully awake, aware, fully dressed, the center of the six, like a Templar in action.
But in this picture, the Transcendent One, the Brahma mind, the “man in the center” is not President Obama like it is supposed to be. It is Bill Daley, the President’s Chief of Staff.
So what’s up with that?
