I will not touch the relationship between Aiki and the Force, but I would like to point out that the ideas in Star Wars were not those of Lucas, but instead those of Joseph Campbell.What Lucas has done with the original vision of Star Wars is shameful, and he has not produced anything even remotely as inspirational as the original trilogy since Campbell passed away.
?????.. I think you missed the point
I love the comparison between Aikidoka and Jedi!!!!
Just last night we were talking about using the Force. (The lights in the Dojo went out just before bokken practice.)
