One day a friend of mine asked me to teach him how to hunt. I politely refused, saying that I could offer him more.

In view of the fact that he had a whole month ahead of him in Sloboda, I did not want to deprive him of the opportunity to master the technique of self-study. After all, this is much more fun and useful. Incomparably more rewarding than just hunting someone's life. The ability to be a pioneer, discoverer, explorer and experimenter is what anyone who wants to experience genuine satisfaction with life needs.

The ability to study the world around us, extracting knowledge from our personal practice is the key to the survival of a person deprived of the support of civilization. Here it is - the true school of survival, it is in the formation of systems thinking, and not at all in silly recipes "how to make a fire with a condom and a chainsaw."

To hell with stupid erudition, it only clutters the memory with a heap of useless information. Life will one day ask a question to which you will not have a suitable answer. The answer to be found with the flair and intuition of a tracker.

Systems thinking is the bow of the hunter, which is always with him. The force of his tension is the force of the mind, capable of sending a thought, like an arrow straight to the target. This is what allows you to return home with your loot. Always.

According to Indian legends, the life of an onion begins with a sprouted seed. The one that, after many years, will give a tree of the required quality. The Master will find it, find it among thousands of others in the Dark Forest, and the Spirit Tree will become a Bow. By the one who sends the arrow to crush the Beast.
