The still immature One is mirrored in his own superficial ego, like a child who develops detached from his mother and becomes aware of being alone and that is an individual detached from his surroundings. Feels the instinctive need for self-preservation and gives maximum attention to its survival.
Evolving this need, it becomes the setting of objectives, to affirm itself also in the social context where it lives and works and develops its own individuality.
Second evolutionary step the evolution of the One is to make contact with the outside world and identify its strengths and shortages, its thoughts rise up becoming ideal, the action is triggered and the warrior works to bring justice and to improve external reality. At this stage the ego component is still active, which lingers in the awards for its commitment.
Third evolutionary step the One understands that the external component is a mirror of itself, that which is not part of its shadow, with this awareness operates the transmutation of the ego.

Facts About Number 1
The One symbolizes the Good, the absolute harmony, the first abstract manifestation of the ineffable Zero. Its shadow is the first activity of the point on the circumference. In geometry it is related to the point as an entity lacking dimension, from which all forms originate.
According to the dictionary of symbols of J.E.Cirlot, the one equals the center, to the point, at the beginning of the not manifest creative power or “immobile motor”. Plotinus identifies it with the Good or the moral end, the One-Good, while assimilating the multiplicity to the evil, with which it is in full conformity with the symbolist doctrine.
According to others, the one is the symbol of standing man, the only living being who enjoys this faculty, to the point that some anthropologists see in verticality a distinctive sign of man, more radical than even reason.
This symbolism of verticality is also found in the images of upright stones, present in all the cultures of antiquity, the staff of command or the erect phallus, which represent the active man, the work of creation.
Apart from the general and universal characteristics of the figure 1 as a base and as a starting point, this figure presents some peculiarities in the literature and folklore of the peoples.
In Iranian folklore, for example, the one represents the One God and is written with the first letter of the Arab-Persian alphabet, which has the value of one.
In the chivalric legends of Islam, the hero arrogantly affirms his belonging to a culture spread throughout the East, whose motto is “there is no other god but the One God”.
The hero stands as a defender of the religious thought in which he has been educated and when he enters a court, he declares in an attitude of defiance: “My greeting in this court goes to the one who knows that in the eighteen thousand universes God is one”.
This unifying symbol would be, according to C.G. Jung, charged with an extremely powerful psychic energy. Man is able to assume all the energy of this unifying symbol to consummate in him the harmony of the conscious and the unconscious, to realize the dynamic equilibrium of the opposites, of the concrete and the abstract, of reason and imagination, of the ideal and the everyday.
The whole is unified in its personality and it blossoms into the whole.
