    Cool Wisdom from the Tao of Underwater Survival

    In preparation for possibly taking an IANTD technical course I purchased the (big, fat, heavy) required "Exploration and Mixed Gas Diving Encyclopedia". I have a few initial questions:

    Should Butchers Broom be combined with Pine Bark extract on an herbal regimen?
    Is "focused mind" or "empty mind" the preferred form of meditation?
    If it can turn aside a sword can I learn to use my "Chi" to turn the valves that I otherwise can't reach without dislocating my shoulder?

    I have no questions on the technical portion which is well explained (especially by Joe Dituri in his chapters but they were probably written before he went rogue and grew out his hair)

    Just asking

    LOL - but both forms "focused" and "empty" are excellent for meditation. The preference lies with you.

    No. If you feel tempted use horny goat weed or slippery elm.

    Focused mind for cave and saltwater wreck.
    Empty mind for freshwater wreck or ice.

    You can't use your chi to reach those valves. But you can use your sword. Or (at the advanced level) a set of nunchucks.
