Naruto must be part of the Senju Clan
According to my last theory that was Kishi's Hokage Selection (http://www.narutobase.net/forums/nar...selection.html) I predicted Naruto would become the 7th Hokage because of the following:
Now... since the crown chakra is the chakra of a thousand petals as mentioned above... Kishi must have been relating the thousand petals to the thousand hands/techniques of the Senju clan since Senju means a thousand skills or a thousand hands. So in order to make it so the 7th Hokage has something to do with the number a thousand, the 7th Hokage is probably a descendant of the Senju Clan.

The thousand hand statue is the embodiment of the enlightened being named Avalokiteśvara who is a bodhisattva (an enlightened being who compassionately refrains from entering nirvana in order to save others) that embodies the compassion of all Buddhas.
One prominent Buddhist story tells of Avalokiteśvara vowing never to rest until he had freed all sentient beings from samsara (the cycle of reincarnation or rebirth). Despite strenuous effort, he realizes that still many unhappy beings were yet to be saved. After struggling to comprehend the needs of so many, his head splits into eleven pieces. Amitabha Buddha, seeing his plight, gives him eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering. Upon hearing these cries and comprehending them, Avalokiteśvara attempts to reach out to all those who needed aid, but found that his two arms shattered into pieces. Once more, Amitabha comes to his aid and invests him with a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering multitudes.
The Bao'en Temple located in northwestern Sichuan province, China has an outstanding wooden image of the thousand armed Avalokiteśvara.
So anyways... Naruto has a lot of compassion. His actions are because of his compassion. He gets strength from his compassion. If Kishi picks Hokages in the way that I predicted, then the 7th Hokage must have something to do with the number a thousand, and most likely that means they must be a descendant of Senju, and therefore Naruto is most likely that descendant.
