The Refinement of the 12 Ethical Stages of Perspective Growth

Yesterday, I located my Perspective’s lesson, and am shifting into the 11th of the You of I.

(The 10th Ethical Perspective of the You of I is to become consciously aware of the… Consciously Aware… There is the key I have been looking for… Consciously Aware of the Allowance of Others without Interference from you. It is Valuing The Prime Directive so as to not force premature Evolution onto others… which is exactly what has been done in our society: as the 4th Perspectives often force “growing up” on the 1st and 3rd before they are ready.)

At this point, it is undeniable, the levels of patterns within patterns visible within the 12 Ethical Stages.

The most obvious of this is the 2 Groups of 6.

The first 6 Perspectives follow a pattern, which is repeated from 7th to 12th.

1st and 7th – Silent Observer

2nd and 8th – Active Adventurer

One could say that “Wallflower” or “Introvert” is the 1st Ethic, while “Extrovert” is the 2nd Ethic. And these are stages we are supposed to pass through, not cozy down and get comfortable in.

3rd and 9th – The Wise Student of “Trial and Error.” I love the wisdom of the 9th, and there are many elements about the 9th that I enjoyed. The 3rd and 9th embraced “The Chemist Mind.” In both cases, I could feel the joy of both previous Perspectives and consciously sought to have “both” integrated, but I also enjoyed the challenge of integrating both.

At the end of the 3rd and the 9th, an overwhelming sensation of Community, People, and the joys of wanting to indulge in others drew me into the 4th and 10th, which gave me a wave of a new feeling, “Self-Preservation” with Self-Rule and Self-Law. When in doubt, default to Self-Law.

4th and 10th – The Perspectives of Allowance. Our instinct in the 4th and 10th is to Control. But Allowance battles with Control. Unchecked, the Control gets projected outward. The battle is won when we learn to use Self-Control to relax and permit Allowance.

5th and 11th – Power of Choice and Navigation. I liken these perspectives to a car. You have found the gas and the steering wheel. And you are going. But the skill to Navigate and steer, is not the same as slamming the gas and trying to keep the car on the road.

6th and 12th – Prioritizing Others equal to the Self. Self-Value, Self-Reflection, Purpose. This is the moment where you want to put all of your lessons to work for others. In both cases, I could see how all the lessons prior required integrated application.

But now I’m seeing another pattern emerge. The compatibility between the Perspectives. For instance…

2nd and 4th are highly compatible.

3rd and 5th are highly compatible.

4th and 6th are highly incompatible

The divide that occurs at the 5th and the 6th is fascinating to me. The conflict occurs only when the Ethical Value of the Perspective is seemingly violated and/or not respected by others.

The 2nd Values the Law and Order of the “Tribal Leader.” In many cases this is God, a Head of the Household, a Mob Boss, a Gang Leader, a Tribal Chief.

The 4th values the Law and Order of the Written Law of the Land. “Ours is not to question why” governs both the 2nd and the 4th.

The 5th and the 3rd question why. Their Ethical Value is Trial and Error, Learning, Peer-to-Peer and DIY Learning. The 3rd and 5th Agenda is to push boundaries, question the system, expand the mind, challenge everything. “What’s in it for me?” and “Live and Let Live” are both, very much the core Value of both the 3rd and the 5th.

The 6th admires and reveres those within the 7th+. They look on ahead, aspiring to enter the Metaphysical and grow on. They look on to the “Awakened” minds of the Omniscient (for the record, I *loathe* the phrase, philosophy, and concept of “Awakened” and I do not condone this condescending mindset of superiority).

The 7th and 9th, the 8th and 10th, and 9th and 11th, and 10th and 12th. Once again, the compatibility soars.

The 7th and 9th share the Value of Inner Reflection.

The 8th and 10th share the unharnessed freedom of “Natural Flow.” “Why should I hold back if its truth?” wonders the 8th and 10th.

The 9th and 11th share the challenge of Mindfulness toward Others and Community. A desire to Preserve others while seeking to empower the self. But the desire to preserve and empower others is the higher priority at this point.

I am fresh out of the 10th of You and need more time to reflect on the connections between 10th and 12th as I am currently sandwiched between the two.


I also see a pattern between the 4 Groupings. This one, I see the most of.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd; 4th, 5th, and 6th; 7th, 8th, and 9th; 10th, 11th, and 12th, of course.

But also the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th as the Foundational Minds.

The 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th as the Cultivator Minds.

The 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th as the Visionary Minds.

I see patterns within patterns, moving forward and up exactly as one can expect from the perfection of the Fibonacci Sequence.
