  • Idea:
Left the older generation of investigators, and filled the world heritage (investigator), but an ongoing investigation on a new way, not - certainly - the way those adults, or close to it. If we sought the excuse that the investigators (new) do not have the knowledge, the petition is contained in the splitting process of investigation, a splitting method which should be adhered to by the investigator, and derived by considering the tests first, since this method can rise much investigation to a level not provoke, Prior to that, does not spoil the texts and distorted.

Institute begins a series of sessions of this course combines theoretical lectures and "workshops", Applied and look at the "investigation" as a holistic process start thinking in the selection of the text, and ends directed in a printed book. With the ultimate goal to achieve the rehabilitation of the texts as a high-level scientific work, not an act of the second degree.

Is a cycle of rising on the idea of ​​aggregate (summed up the process of investigation in six days) and overall not necessarily mean the boot, which will be followed by - God willing - the sessions stop at the vocabulary of the investigation process, hoping that establish this system training adoption of those who attended by serious "investigators" are able to deal with the provisions of the heritage and serve.
