THE CONTROL OF CONDUCT IN THE EVERYDAY WORLD

The art of stalking takes place within the reality of the everyday world.  It is practiced in right-side awareness, that is, it consists of an extremely careful and specialized handling of ordinary reality, with its final aim the penetration into this separate reality. The stalker is a consummate practioner who makes the everyday world a battleground in which every act, every interaction with fellow humans, forms part of the strategy.

Stalking is the strategic control of our own conduct. Its field of action is the interaction that takes place between human beings (warriors or not). Therefore the stalker, far from fleeing from the social scene, immerses himself or herself in it, using it to temper the spirit, gain energy, and carry the self beyond the limits of personal history.
