1. Stay calm
Stay calm if you get lost. Do not get PANiC. While you panic, the possibility is you will just run or walk without direction. So don't. Stay calm and try to remember how you got there.
2. Use your compass and maps.
However, it's much more better than you walk without guidance. Recall where you come from and remeber if you make a turn and what direction the turn was.
3. Mark your way.
Whenever you move or leave your first place, give a mark, so that you can return to your first place. And it has possibility for people who looking for you could find your mark.

Art of War

Chapter Two: Doing Battle
Sun-tzu said: Generally, the requirements of warfare are this way: One thousand quick four-horse chariots, one thousand leather rideable chariots, one hundred thousand belted armor, transporting provisions one thousand li, the distribution of internal and on the field spending, the efforts of having guests, materials such as glue and lacquer, tributes in chariots and armor, will amount to expenses of a thousand gold pieces a day.
Only then can one hundred thousand troops be raised.
When doing battle, seek a quick victory.
A protracted battle will blunt weapons and dampen ardor.
If troops lay siege to a walled city, their strength will be exhausted.
If the army is exposed to a prolonged campaign, the nation's resources will not suffice.
When weapons are blunted, and ardor dampened, strength exhausted, and resources depleted, the neighboring rulers will take advantage of these complications.
Then even the wisest of counsels would not be able to avert the consequences that must ensue. Therefore, I have heard of military campaigns that were clumsy but swift, but I have never seen military campaigns that were skilled but protracted.
No nation has ever benefited from protracted warfare.
Therefore, if one is not fully cognizant of the dangers inherent in doing battle, one cannot fully know the benefits of doing battle.
Those skilled in doing battle do not raise troops twice, or transport provisions three times.
Take equipment from home but take provisions from the enemy.
Then the army will be sufficient in both equipment and provisions.
A nation can be impoverished by the army when it has to supply the army at great distances. When provisions are transported at great distances, the citizens will be impoverished.
Those in proximity to the army will sell goods at high prices.
When goods are expensive, the citizens' wealth will be exhausted. When their wealth is exhausted, the peasantry will be afflicted with increased taxes.
When all strength has been exhausted and resources depleted, all houses in the central plains utterly impoverished, seven-tenths of the citizens' wealth dissipated, the government's expenses from damaged chariots, worn-out horses, armor, helmets, arrows and crossbows, halberds and shields, draft oxen, and heavy supply wagons, will be six-tenths of its reserves.
Therefore, a wise general will strive to feed off the enemy.
One bushel of the enemy's provisions is worth twenty of our own, one picul of fodder is worth twenty of our own.
Killing the enemy is a matter of arousing anger in men; taking the enemy's wealth is a matter of reward. Therefore, in chariot battles, reward the first to capture at least ten chariots.
Replace the enemy's flags and standards with our own.
Mix the captured chariots with our own, treat the captured soldiers well. This is called defeating the enemy and increasing our strength.
Therefore, the important thing in doing battle is victory, not protracted warfare.
Therefore, a general who understands warfare is the guardian of people's lives, and the ruler of the nation's security.


Sun Tzu : Art of War

Sun's The Art of War has influenced many notable figures. Traditional histories recount that the first emperor of a unified China, Qin Shi Huang, considered the book invaluable in ending the Age of Warring States. Japan was introduced to The Art of War c. 760 CE, and the book quickly became popular among Japan's generals. The publication also significantly influenced the unification of Japan. Mastery of its teachings was considered a mark of respect among the samurai, and its teachings were both exhorted and exemplified by influential samurai such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.Historians popularly recount how French emperor Napoleon studied Sun's military writings and used them to successfully wage war against the rest of Europe.


The Language of Nature

Sunday, 14 June 2009

Seeing and watching little thing surround us can give a big thing that you never realize before.But sometimes we get usuall with just a "big stuff". What i mean is our nature, our surroundings, that i would like to call "Languange of Nature". The behaviour of animal, plant, wind, cloud and many other things around us. They won't say "Hey, it's gonna rain" or "Today is a sunny day" or maybe "Watch out, a storm will catch us".No...but these language just leave a sign for us to discover it self, while the sign just left behind if we ignored it, but when human become more sensitive with this untold language, when we discovered what they are trying totell us, then I should welcome you to another amazing world, "The World of Universe, The Language of Nature" that actually already be there, but waiting for us to discover. For example, some trees have leaves that are very sensitive to changes in humidity and will curve upward when it becomes more humid. Increases in humidity are usually associated with rain, so the trees usually curl up their leaves before it rains.
