Under certain conditions of society inferior values may predominate. A sustainable policy cycle of superior values is wise to accept this phase of events calmly rather than vainly attempting to counteract it.
  
Sub-conditions
  
  
: 1. Those of inferior values may initiate schemes to undermine the position of the sustainable policy cycle by intriguing against its supporters.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Support
  
  
)
  
. 2. The sustainable policy cycle, isolated by the initiatives of those of inferior values, may be destroyed unless it can rapidly adjust its position.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Inexperience
  
  
)
  
. 3. Provided it is able to enhance the expression of its superior values, the sustainable policy cycle may disassociate itself from those of inferior values, who will then oppose it actively.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Inaction
  
  
)
  
. 4. Events can deteriorate to the point at which the sustainable policy cycle is unable to avoid misfortune.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Progress
  
  
)
  
. 5. Those of inferior values may be attracted by the superior values of the sustainable policy cycle and voluntarily accept its guidance.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Recognition
  
  
)
  
. 6. As support for the sustainable policy cycle increases, the strategies of those of inferior values become progressively more self-destructive.
  
(Resulting in:
  
Receptivity
  
  
)

Transformation sequence
