"In all practices with the Seventy-two Arts in the beginning principle theory is studied and only then work outs are done. At first those who practice the arts train the softness of these sinews and bones and try to make agile all of their joints and articulations. Then they set into motion the principle breath ZONG LI, strengthen the interior organs FU, improve blood state, consolidate body strength, control the cinnabar field while keeping your focus energy inside it, overcome their desires and requirements. The strength spreads for the four extremities and also the hundred joints and articulations, now a fighter is command of unlimited power and the man can move off 1000 jins. Your arm weighing only ten jins can move anything weighing ten thousand jins having a stroke. Your arms are a head, your legs really are a tail. Everything is permeated with a single movement, one's body moves being a dragon. Teachers said: “Shaolin exercises develop forces with the whole human organism, all joints and bones; you are competent at striking with all areas of the body. " There is another saying: “The fist will be the method to obtain all arts and the leg may be the base, the root with the fist. " Ordinary practice of pugilism consists of 70 % of leg training and thirty percent of fist training. If you acquire pugilism, you can use eighteen types of weapon. If you resort to all ruses of pugilism, you can fight ten thousand fighters. " /Secret Shaolin Treatises about the Pugilistic Art/ The study of geology also encompasses Earth processes which can affect overall civilization. An earthquake can destroy a large number of lives in a few minutes. Also, tsunamis, floods, landslides, droughts, and volcanic activity may have an enormous influence on civilization. Geologists study those processes and can recommend action plans to minimize damage in the event that such events will occur. For example, by studying flood patterns of rivers, geologists can recommend areas to stop when building new cities,towns, and residential neighborhoods in order to prevent future damage. Earthquake science, although a very difficult division of study, might help minimize problems for life and civilization by estimating where earthquakes are likely to occur (referred to as fault lines) also to recommend the technology to use within the construction of buildings over these vulnerable areas.
