2. If you actually have gotten hands on with someone who has aiki to a decent level and can use it proficiently, then all debate is over. Period.
This one is interesting to me. So NO ONE
who has met any of these people has disputed what they are saying? Who gets to be in this club, and how much is membership? Because it sounds like a pretty done deal the way you are describing it here.
What is the control? How can one with what you call "Aiki" show that they have it, other then through opinion? I guess what I'm asking here is, how can one "prove" they have this ability you're calling "Aiki", other then your peers simply saying that you do?
What is a sound way to test for what you call "Aiki"?
