Re: Poll: Is "ki" as used in aikido a metaphor for you?

A metaphor is like a symbol, an illustration, not to be taken literally. "ki" is living energy.
And "living energy" is what, precisely? Can your ki, or mine, be measured in kilojoules (the SI unit of energy)? Or does energy in context mean something else? If so, what?

Maybe a symbol and an illustration that is not to be taken literally?
