For some years my mind has been copulating with the concept that forward ukemi is actually ikkyo performed on a shomenuchi strike perpetrated by the whole of the earth. Do any of you find yourself infected by a similar notion? If this is the case, what tomfoolery can we assign to the act of rear ukemi?

Similarly, I've though of it more as blending to the outside of a mune tsuki, as in kotegaeshi. I can't think of a sensible analogy for back rolls.
