    Chrstine's numerological beliefs

    At first I was rather shocked that literally one of the most powerful women in the world that runs literally the most powerful institution in the world would so unabashedly express her occult beliefs in a public forum. But strictly from a theological sense, I'm not one bit surprised. Her numerological hokum is at 7:20 of the video...

    I'm not sure she intended this to be taken literally. Her point seemed to be that no progress will happen randomly but will only come about by adopting good policies. But, yes, it was pretty bizarre. Is she a professed Wiccan or neo-Pagan of some kind?
    βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον
    ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

    Posted it here because I didn't know where else to post it. Didn't seem quite as relevant in the civics section.

    No, that was the theme she argued after her numerological spiel. The numerology was totally out of context to that theme.

    It's not at 7:20, it's at 7:44. Moreover, she goes on to refer to the numerology gibber-jabber as "magic" at 8:23, and I would imagine she defines "magic" as silly playfulness.

    OR

    I could be completely wrong and she's a witch. Neither of these possibilities seem all that significant though..

    You created a false dichotomy. I don't know if she's a witch, or if she even has to be... I don't know what even constitutes being a witch, but that's irrelevant. As far as it being significant... say you were being trained to pilot a plane. It was just you and the professional pilot. Just before you get into the plane with him, the pilot starts openly spouting off astrological signs and interpretations to you that he believed had occurred and was occurring, implying it might affect the flight somehow. Even though you have no idea what he's talking about, how eager are going to be to get into the plane with the dude? It's significant because she's head of the IMF.

    I think you might be reading too much into this. Ms. Lagarde was still in the introductory portion of her talk and therefore a whimsical, comical remark was not exactly out of place. She even transitioned by stating "moving on"; in other words, joke-time is over and now on to serious business.

    She never said "moving on," Derrick. At least not as a transition from her numerology spiel to the global economy. It looks like YOU'RE clearly reading things into it she never actually said

    Well, it seems to me that she transitioned out of her more silly, introductory stage onto a progressively more serious note. This is highly usual for a professional speech/talk.

    She said "carry on" in the middle of her "7" spiel, not as a transition lol. "Is this wishful thinking" at 9:44 was the transition, dude. If you want to dismiss it, fine, but don't try and interpret things she said in a way she didn't say it just to support your case.
