1st Rule - that everything that surrounds us is an unfathomable mystery.
2nd Rule - we must try to unravel these mysteries, but without ever hoping to accomplish this.
3rd Rule - that a warrior, aware of the unfathomable mystery that surrounds him and aware of his duty to try to unravel it, takes his rightful place among mysteries and regards himself as one. Consequently, for a warrior there is no end to the mystery of being, whether being means being a pebble, or an ant, or oneself. That is a warrior's humbleness. One is equal to everything.
