Re: Poll: Is the spiritual component of aikido inherent in the physical techniques?

Sorry about the double entry, but I thought Don Modesto made a word up when he wrote 'synesthesia'.

"the transformation of physical training into a...metaphor (into synesthesia?)" - Don Modesto

Anyway I looked it up at dictionary.com:
Synesthesia:
A condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a color.
A sensation felt in one part of the body as a result of stimulus applied to another, as in referred pain.
The description of one kind of sense impression by using words that normally describe another.

Interesting. Don't limit what you might experience from training.

Maybe. But there's a reason i say i don't believe in God - how can i discover what i already know for certain?
