CPR is taught by the American Heart Association using task segmentation . Each component of the process in isolation , then in small sets , then the entire process in succession . Simple.

The 5 links in the adult Chain of Survival -

• Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system
• Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compressions
• Rapid defibrillation
• Effective advanced life support
• Integrated post-cardiac arrest care

So first you practice : Man is Down ! Hey , Hey , are you okay ? Shake the person . No response .
Then : No breathing . Find a pulse . No pulse . Initiate chest compressions . Initiate rescue breathing .
Then : Using the Automated defibrillator .
Each of the above broken down into simple steps.
Then stringing it all together.

This forum is like that . Try to learn permaculture from the designers manual and it seems way too complex . Break it down into simple parts and then start to build a more complex process . Eureka !

Comfrey : Easy to grow plant with many uses .
Apple trees : Say no more . We talk about them aplenty .
Chickens : Volumes of chicken talk around here .

Now , plant your comfrey around your apple tree. It's a guild .
Now add the chicken . It's a system .

I think the largest impediment to permaculture going mainstream is its complexity . This forum is the best way to see its working parts and how to build on those .
