Hi, I am James Barton an independent truth seeker and the author of the free book: "Inner Medicine" which contains some of my discoveries on the nature of character and the virtues plus practical techniques to heal our character and boost any quality/virtue within ourselves. This site contains a wide range of interesting topics so please explore deeply. Search over 4000 pages!
In a personal self defence situation, a wider conflict, an inner exercise to become free of a bad habit and in many other situations *Advance Forwards* is a basic elemental option. It is therefore very useful to focus our attention on the concept of Advance. Such attention will illuminate the concept and free us from false views about it that may have been limiting our strategic freedom. Remember to see each elemental concept as having endless depth. In other words it would be possible to pick one concept and contemplate it for a life time and it could still reveal more and more useful truths. Simple lists are only the first step. Try and uncover symmetrical patterns etc and group together related concepts. Study Conceptual Science.
Here are some elemental tactical reasons for Advancing:
To show strength and break enemy morale
To attack weak point
To end battle before unfavourable time
To not allow enemy time to observe
To not allow enemy time to recover
To not allow enemy time to plan
To pretend strength
To start conflict at favourable time
How does the above list compare with the Reasons for Retreat List? What is th value of conceptual symmetry?
