In real life, we can see only small parts of the huge puzzle of the open universe. And the moments that it’s possible to have access with it are very rare. This is exactly the reason why we had to be prepared not only for seeing them but also to make them longer in Time. The practice of exercises has this aim. In a mate or a tsumego you don’t see the game but just a part, a pattern that will be useful in the phase of recognition. You can see the same thing when you study ancient texts. You don’t see them in their ritual but you can reconstruct a part of it. The flashpoint is to believe that this is possible, the rest is history of the future.
