    Chapter 13 is exclusively devoted to the use of spies. Basing itself on the centrality of knowledge to victory, it argues forcefully that:

      Foreknowledge cannot be grasped from ghosts and spirits,
      Cannot be inferred from events,
      Cannot be projected from calculation.
      It must be grasped from people's knowledge.
