Originally, power was scattered in one place, aura and miasma.
Then it was joined in Melchizidek, priest and king.
Then it was divided between a priest and a king.
Then it was joined in a king.
Then it was divided between a king and a law
Then it was joined in the law
Then the law was divided into many rules.
Then the rules were scattered everywhere.
