ETA: Thats why I love the movie Titanic so much, the three classes were segregated aboard the same ship. Back then people were less offended by that so we can look back and see what accommodations were respectively.
Nowadays the wealthy elite aren't on the same ship airline, subway or freeway, they fly overhead in Lears, drive in Limos, They don't eat the same food, drink the same water or bump elbows with ordinary folk anymore.
Just as the five skandhas are transformed into the five dyhanna buudhas; with meditation practice... so the three lalo's a single buddha can be born out of them in the shambogakaya, dhammakaya and nirmanakaya or body sppech and mind or form feeling and perception; respectively. While I understand people learn on different levels of being in awareness of such; reducing such into personifications is even more conceptual load to being itself or mind itself, simply being does not require a mind and when it does there's minfulness and just body... volition which is what we are speaking of here; his kamma how does it cut? Well look at all the responses... it ripples out and cut individually, in those held beliefs and concepts as reality... so the question is are they going to add to peoples conceptual load or reduce it? So saying his ego; does not seems to need; that may very well be the case... is he wanting to leave a legacy for his ancestors to benefit from? That is a possibility, as the head deals with ego and heart deals with the latter, where the black heart deals with the latter and then lashes out from expectation later when head thinks it does not add up. lol not seeing thus clearly a vicious cycle develops... So I agree personal egoistic gain? No. To support his family by what may arise out of it? Perhaps... as there is also maybe he sees it as a burden he is tired of carrying and the nondisclosure business is his way of unbinding as other have pointed out too old to have anything to lose by breaking silence... as if they did anything to him... that would edge it to even more true than speculation. hearsay, etc. not doing anything can allow manipulation of what arises out of it twisting opinions heard or seen towards agenda. So true speech can even become false speech given enough time... but that matters not in the various hoots and howls we translate in the mind as illuminati etc. what matters is the right now message. If it points to freedom who cares? Such is a nature of noble sacrifice... or greater good business others often speak of. Of course that does not give free license to lie and backbite but where larger kamma than the individuals involved are concerned? Who knows as time will tell as that kamma and volition arises in fruition.
