I’d searched for a long time trying to figure out what I wanted but even after years never really figured it out.
I have, though, found many examples of what I didn’t want.
Some of these things were for me closer to what I did want, some further. Mapping them all out, I’m starting to get a better idea of what it could be that I’m searching for.
I think it’s analogous to the game minesweeper – you click on the cells that you know do not contain the bomb. Some indicators tell you you’re close, but nothing directly tells you you’re there.
You mark the periphery, and deduce the location of the mines.
In the end all you’re left with is the tao and you find what you it is you’re searching for.
