A foundation tenant of the art we study is that it's "natural". Okay then, lets look nature where you find all flavors and stripes of cooperation, symbiosis and yes, even altruism. But all that happens in the context of unrelenting pressure if scarcity----scarce food, water, light, heat and so forth. That pressure externally fuels the competitive urges within to overcome. In my mind, we have similar forces at work in our training and our lives. The fundamental scarcity is time. As we grow in this art we see how much more there is to grow and how little time there's left. I don't view competition as good/bad but simply natural
