I'm getting from a lot of the posts a fealing that the journey is all important - a view I share.

However, lets say the pill got us up to let's say Shodan level - what then. Personally I do not equate mastery of technique with mastery of Aikido in that the internalization and spontanious generation (takemasu) are more than the sum of techniques.

Human lives being finite I would rather spend my time working at the higher levels than grubbing around in the dirt.
