David, Level-3 thinking is *very simple* to attain. All that is
required is to be subject to a situation [for a few weeks] where many of
your previous mental coping techniques *generate obvious garbage*. [For
me, this was my current job.] For optimal results, the blasted
techniques should include all of your time management skills.

Under these circumstances, Level-3 thinking will be acquired as a *vital*
survival skill. I believe Richard Brodie picked up Level-3 this way.
