Philosophy – Drawing on Wisdom of the Masters

Robotron has survived the decades as a brilliant game because success requires an intuitive understanding of offense and defense in battle, coupled with full mental focus.  If your head isn’t in the right mindset or your body isn’t relaxed, even a seasoned player will struggle.

  • Some players liken it to a Zen moment when they are “In the Zone” (click here to learn more about The Robotron Zone)

Know thy opponent.  Know thy self. And you will fear not the results of battle. -ancient wisdom

Invincibility is in the defense. Possibility of victory in the attack.  -ancient wisdom

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory.  Tactics without strategy is the fastest route to defeat.  -ancient wisdom

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness and indecisiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too … Whatever you can do … begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin in NOW.
– Goethe

Further in your Robotron training, the genius of this ancient poem will resonate with clarity-

  • Do not be angry.
  • Do not worry.
  • Be grateful.
  • Work with diligence.
  • Be kind to people.

Cho Ku Rei, Sanskrit symbol of power
