Re: Taisabaki and Ueshiba

I think it was Josh Lerner here or somewhere else who said in the West everyone agrees that they experience the universe the same way, but disagree on the best terminology to describe it, while in East everybody uses the same terminology but each person believes that only they really know what the terms really mean. A generality, of course, but with a kernel of truth in there, I think.
