"War is an area of uncertainty; three quarters of the things on which all action in War is based are lying in a fog of uncertainty to a greater or lesser extent. The first thing needed here
is a fine, piercing mind, to feel out the truth with the measure of its judgement"
- Carl von Clausewitz
We all live our lives in a Fog of War, but it is a different war. One we are not often aware of fighting. One that uses our mind as the battlefield, never resting, not even in our sleep. A war beyond our field of vision. A war within ourselves.
When you leave the room, there is no way of truly knowing what happens after you depart. Your mind begins to dance with the possibilities, your thoughts begin to wander. We use our observations and deduction skills to build an image of what's happening when we're not there. But sometimes our observations are off, biased, deformed, and we end up making the wrong choices. The depths of the minds of others are not so easily ascertained, and often we find that our trust in our instincts was misplaced. We operated in a fog without sufficient data, and made the wrong calls. Your perception is the only true reality you will ever experience, but sometimes you wish your reality was different.
Our entire lives are built on the collection of this information, where you have been the one scouting, devising the battle plan, and fighting in the front lines. There are no winners in war, and
even if we cannot always choose our own battles, we have to keep moving and come out the other end standing. Sadly, most of the time the enemy lies only within ourselves.
