You’re about to read an Encantadia theory.
We already saw the tease of DMR: a part of his riddle states “5+2”.
The number seven is important in literature. “Symbol of eternal life for the Egyptians: it symbolizes a complete cycle, a dynamic perfection. For the Indians in the prairie and the “Pueblo” Indians, the number seven represents the cosmic coordinate of the man. In Africa and for the Bambaras of Senegal, seven is a symbol of the perfection and the unity.”
It indicates the sense of a change after an accomplished cycle and of a positive renewal. It is a symbol of completeness.
What if in preparation for the conclusion of Encantadia, the FIVE new Gem Keepers plus BOTH Lira and Mira are to be the ones that complete the book?
We already know PaoPao and Deshna are part of the 5 new Gem Bearers (Episodes 160 and 161).
Some people say “But what about Lira and Mira? Don’t they deserve the gems too?” Both Sang’gres do not necessarily need the gems to be powerful forces. One is a mage and one is a warrior. Daughters of a Queen and the Redeemed. There is strength in that.
Therefore, in this theory, Mira and Lira do not, in fact, get any of the gems.
This number 7 illustrates completeness, a sense of learning from past mistakes. Mine-a did not necessarily expound why she chose her daughters to take care of the gems – whether Emre told her we do not know. She just distributed them out of motivation from Pirena’s actions. But was it really the “correct” way of doing it?
As recently revealed, the Gem Sigils can find its own worthy bearers. And if chosen, the gems are stronger in power when utilized. Shouldn’t this have been the chosen course of action from the start?
The 5 New Gem Bearers can end up being the Protectors of Encantadia (imagine Amihan I) while Mira and Lira can properly rule and execute their duties without having to tend to their Gems. There is a separation of Leadership and Duty to the Gems. Something that evidently became an issue with the 4 Sang’gres.
This theory demonstrates a sense of learning from the past and a sense of a new chapter, just as the Number 7 signifies.
