Re: Basic elements of Aikido
It kind of becomes a Chicken or the Egg thing. I guess I just have trouble with the idea that manifestations of these princples could have come before the philosophical underpinnings. Did China have their own verision of kotodama? Would it really be considered Chinese? They have a word for "air" which probably came before the English word for "air" but I don't think of "air" as Chinese or Mesopotamean either...
