I first came across a book on 36 stratagems in my teenage years. At that time I felt disgust towards the book, as it looked to me more like a collection of dirty tricks and villainy tactics, than a book on the art of war, even less so as a book on business, politics or social communications.

 

Because of the frame I put the work in back then, I never really paid attention to multiple mentions of the work in relation to business and other activities I’ve been involved in.

 

As a side note, around 8 years ago I got interested in a martial art called ILiqChuan, and has been practicing and even teaching it since. The art is based on the principles of Tao and Zen, and with years of practice I started to appreciate how simple principles of yin, yang and their balance can be applied at different levels and plains and lead to very interesting results.

We often think that some things are the same for everyone, but when we discuss them in a group, it turns out they’re not?

Here at SpatialNote we have the most interesting discussions inspired by the application we’re working on. The driving force of excellent memorization with SpatialNote is the power of spatial metaphors. It seemed to me that the most simple and common example of a spatial metaphor would be the flow of time: what is behind us represents past, what is in front of us represents the future. The rest of the team disagrees. To them it’s quite obvious that the past is on the left, and the future is on the right. May somebody be wrong in this case? Not really. Spatial metaphors are individual, and your own perception works to help you remember better.
