OK, thanks. So maybe now I have a better feel for what "Aiki-age" is. The idea of many jins all coming from one jin is, unfortunately, not just my idea. It is a ancient core tenet that's fairly obvious once you begin to pick up skills. It's part of the whole cosmology bandwagon that permeates Asian martial arts and, as such, is part of what Ueshiba was referring to cryptically (but using the standard cryptic phraseology) in the douka.

FWIW
