A “Thing’s” Identity is what it was when it came into Being. Ancient African Sages said the ‘Self’ of a human—meaning ones Self-Identity or ones absolutely unchanging “sameness” which answers the question of: “Who I Am”–is ones conception imparted Divine Consciousness. To be ones Real Self is to allow ones birth gift of the ‘Self’s’ Ultimate Background—ones Self-Identity (i.e. the ‘Divine Mind’ behind ones Foreground of ‘Matter’)–to orchestrate ones life. Such is done by remaining within and cultivating ones Spiritual Elements ingredients. If one chooses otherwise, then ones Selfhood has a self-designed Conscious False Self as the Background governing ones awareness of oneself. It determines what one is to do and guides what one is doing as one goes through life. European psychologists and psychiatrists pick up at this point and deviate from African Tradition by defining Self-Identity as a unified sense of sameness characteristics, especially the Self-Image (i.e. the self one believes ones personality, character, status, body, and bodily appearance to be). Such is embodied in a Being with historical continuity distinguishable from all other Beings. They add this is synonymous with Self-Awareness, a Personal Identity, and ones Ego. If this represents the tip of a triangle, it is built upon a chosen system of Values–the type of thinking method used to maneuver and manipulate those Values–and the nature of ones thoughts and emotions. Since these three determine ones goals and give direction and meaning to ones life, one experiences ones values as an extension of oneself—as an integral part of ones Identity—as crucial to what makes one oneself.

Whereas such, for Real Self humans, are formed out of their ‘Self’ Ultimate Background, for False Self humans all of these by-pass their ‘Self’ so as to be formed out of an Ego directed Occult Background. The Ego, by nourishing ones Sensory Conscious with Non-Rational Thinking, produces anti-Spiritual Elements lifestyles. Together, these constitute a “Killer” police’s “Philosophy of Life” (POL). A POL is structured like a skyscraper building. Its Base, equivalent to the Ultimate Background, is behind/below ones main patterns for living. For “Killer” police, the Base is an Occult Fantasy created Supernatural “Air Castle” mindset. Out of that ‘Base’ arises an Underground Foundation, from which emerges ones System of Values—i.e. “Air Castle” versions of success, as with social power, status, riches, possessions. The Above-ground Foundation upon which the skyscraper rests is the Power Approach of the Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism (IHES) Complex ingredients. The building Frame is ones Attitude—the Fetters—which determine the nature of ones thoughts and emotions for carrying out the Seven Deadly Sins—pride (arrogance), covetousness (greed), lust, anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth (lazy). The Frame’s Covering is Kill/Take/Destroy methods for living. The skyscraper Floors are “Non-Rational/Emotional” thinking used to deceptively maneuver and manipulate ones POL Values by overt, tempered, masked, or concealed means. The ‘Penthouse goals’ of ‘sick’ pleasures are controlling people’s minds + inflicting pain, suffering, and misery + acquiring recognition, status, and fame from fellow IHES mindsets. Out of this Sensory Consciousness Background (analogized to the part of the stage in a theater remote from the audience) springs ones Sensory Consciousness Foreground (like the front part of the stage on which the Play is performed).

The Background Values in the setting of policing are important because they represent to what degree to follow the beliefs and policies which guide the general perspective and mission of the department + the officers’ specific actions and performance as well as influence the officers’ occupational identity. These play out on the Sensory Consciousness Foreground. For example, certain perceptions or team members may lead a policeman to choose to have an orientation of serving the whole community with service or certain communities only or be at ‘war with the community’ or be a tool of the politically influential and rich, and/or engage in corruption. Another factor shaping the expression of ones POL may be the foundation of a structure and environment that does or does not support specific police values. For example, a disordered departmental philosophy driven in multiple directions or a weak leader can be confusing to and challenged by officers who then follow Police policy only when convenient.
