I had some spare time yesterday to work on a diagram to simplify my descriptions of Consciousness IR Theory into something succinct, yet methodical. The result was the following image:
The National Interest is defined by the National Consciousness, which is in turn derived from the National Essence and the National Identity. Both are shaped and molded by the Totality and their State across the centuries. The diagram perfectly describes how Consciousness Theory can traced back to the original trifecta employed by the Work-Standard, the State, Totality and Self.
The shape of the symbol does remind me of the Caduceus, a prominent symbol used to signify international trade. It is sometimes mistaken for a similar looking one called the Rod of Asclepius, which a symbol used to designate healthcare services.
