A Reader Comment on The Competing in the Info. Economy with the "Sunzi's 'Victory Temple' Model" Post

Reader Comments From a Previous Post
the Singularity: Definition taken from a publicly available online dictionary. The State, fact quality or condition of being singular. Synonyms = uniqueness, distinctiveness.

I think the singularity behind the chart might be awareness. Awareness that stems from Assessment in your model. I think that awareness recapitulates several of your blog's main points. Mindfulness, the interconnectedness of things, the Big Tangible Picture, being centered and many more. My understanding of this was gained by reading your site, the Seven Classics and Sawyer's Sun Pin and some unique experiences I've had in my life.

One must be aware of one's emotions and control them. One's response to the opposition must be calculated, controlled and any decision must be acted upon only after careful consideration of potential outcomes. One should also be aware of the weather; weather = heaven? and be mindful of the terrain. I think the 8 classic strategists, however, believe that one should not over-rely upon any supposedly auspicious conditions. I think they believe that one should be aware of any situation in which the opposition failed to do so; additionally I think they also believe the Enlightened strategist should be aware of whether the opposition does not fall into any discord to weather conditions or supposedly ill fated terrain. I think that is why the 8 strategists variously discuss what Man can do in certain situations.

think that awareness relates to Positioning and Influence in that one must have one's intelligence gathering resources out there to gain info on whatever it is you need to know. Only by properly knowing things (gained from Man) and not omens, astrology and so forth can one properly know how to proceed. Think that the Enlightened strategist is one who does and creates something to force the other side to make a move and ideally a poorly decided one at that. think that such a strategist should be creative.

 ...  Think that if one unaware of any particular internal or external condition, the proper response is difficult to find. think that the proper response can be faster than Observe Orient Decide Act if it is habit based.

Enjoy your discussions!

Thoughts From the Compass Desk
Mindful awareness is a part of the macro process that leads to the answer of singularity. Think about that point and you might redefine the definition of singularity

That exotic skill originates from a meta-physical state of self being. We presumed that you and the other readers are able to perform that act with minimum inertia.  It is not that difficult. Some of my associates and I have centered themselves through solitary standing while another associate preferred the act of walking the circle.

Whenever the center state is achieved, you should then carefully study the Victory Temple diagram. After an period of time, you might be able to see the Dao within it.  (There is a process and an unique back story to utilizing this diagram.) 

My associates solved the puzzle of the above diagram in eight minutes. while drinking green tea.  With the given clues, you should be able to do it in six minutes or less. 

Some portions of the array of clues could be found in this book.

The Clue

So, what is the singularity?  It is the context of the process that operates behind the Greater Dao. 

Understand the order of everything and you will know the theory of everything.

Other Thoughts
Once the comprehension is achieved, you should be able to solve this problem.

Side Note 

Based on our constant experiments, we discovered that our strategic process model of Assess, Position and Influence (API) is one step faster than the late Colonel John Boyd's OODA model.  In some situations, rapidity is the essence to the act of thriving. 

We will explain more on our concept in a future post or in our future book. 

In the field of observation, fortune favored the prepared mind who implements a more efficient operating model. (Knowing the relative factors and technical qualifiers for each complex situation is the key.)

Preparing oneself and having a better operating model is a challenge that most people are facing each and every day. 

Moving and grinding is their normal modus operandi. Grounding and pounding is all that they know. Somehow they succeeded with no mindful regard of what would happen on the long run. These people just "kick the can" forward.

Some aspects of the API model can be found in certain Taiji classics.  You just got to do the research on that matter. 

Good luck!
