Translation:

When these five kinds of spy are all at work, none can discover the secret system. This is called “divine manipulation of the threads.” It is the sovereign’s most precious faculty.

Commentary

One of the most secret types of knowledge is about your spies. This should be known only by a very few at the top.

If word leaks out, your enemy will be extra cautious and may put out false information. If they catch your spies then they may be tortured for information, may be turned against your and will likely be killed.
