The figure is resulted from an ongoing study on the dynamics of power. Each colour represents a local group that is fighting with others to gain control over a limited area. As the graph shows, sometimes one group becomes the dominant power and is able to suppress others, while in other occasions there is a struggle between two or more groups to become the leading force.
