    Smile translation

    Hello,

    I'm new to this forum.
    I translate English texts to Dutch. I use many english online dictionaries and have an English aquaintance who helps me now and then, but she's not always able to help. Many writers are American so I thought it might be useful to subscribe to this forum.

    I read the forum rules and I hope my question is appropriate. The question itself has nothing to do with politics. It has something I encountered on the internet.

    Can anybody explain what political envelope means?

    Thanks in advance

    Summer

    Well, yes. It comes from an astrology report so I really hope this is ok.

    Once Exopolitics (extraterrestrial life) becomes our largest political envelope, then war, genocide, and planetary destruction end, and cooperation with all life begins.

    Ok, it appears to be talking about spheres of influence, that is to say once we are under the influence of a greater power than that which exists at the moment things will be better. Political envolope = political sphere of influence.
