For those of you who are in a Teacher city or business, I strongly suggest you review the basic teaching since I will be using our shorthand going forward. I can’t stop and reteach everything I reference.
The Redemptive Gifts of Cities and Seven Principles lay the foundation, and they are to be found in Free Audio. Also there is The Redemptive Gift of Hungary which portrays the dynamic of a Teacher city in a Prophet nation.
One of the defining characteristics of the Teacher gift is that throughout the fractal of seven in Scripture, the Teacher’s position (third) always has a duality. For example, in creation week, God created two things that day and called it good twice. On the cross, Jesus spoke to John and His mother both.
This refers to the fractal of two which foundationally is about gender, but is broadly expressed as receiving/giving, rights/responsibility, acceptance/initiative or love/holiness.
With that background, I asked Julie about the gender of Chaim. K Street divides the city. The general populace who knows nothing of the redemptive gifts refers to east or west of K Street when describing characteristics of the community.
East seems to be male since that is where the manufacturing sector of the business community is. The west side is where retail and upscale housing. To say it differently, production is on the east side and consumption is on the west.
The city as a whole seems to be male. It was founded with a very aggressive vision of dominance, although things shifted over time.
Now here is the kicker as described by Julie in an email to me.
“It seems like the eastern half of Chaim has been skewed/rotated counterclockwise by a few degrees. This has created a slim triangular shaped overlap in the north. Although I’m not seeing it, by extension that means that there must be a slim triangular area in the south where there is a gap.
“I think the axis of rotation runs right through the center of Chaim, meaning that it does not follow the east/west division of K St.
“No idea what all this means. Do you know?”
Nope, I have no idea what it means, but I think it is excellent data that needs to be looked at. Any time there is an aberration, we look at it to see if there is a soft spot that can be exploited, or if it reveals something about the core design.
I find it hugely interesting that the culture divides the city at K Street, but if Julie’s discernment is correct, God divides it at some other point. It is quite common for man’s political or economic boundaries to not quite parallel God’s original design.
Second, I wonder what the spiritual dynamics are of the two small triangles at the top and bottom. In the north, there is overlap of both genders, in the south, possibly some androgynous land.
So, Julie, your next assignment is to drive to those two spots when you get a chance and see if there is anything you can tell us about them.
Second, where is the main Masonic temple in the city? Is it east or west of K Street, and is it between K Street and the center line of the city in terms of the rotation?
Also, where is city hall or whatever your governmental cluster of buildings is called – scattered around, or all in one clump?
