My network analogy was simply an attempt to show that incoming energy does not have to be channeled in a single linear manner - maybe it was not such a good analogy for aiki after
It is a good analogy.
The fascia is a network of connective tissue that involves all parts of the body. Modern medical research shows the body uses this network as a means of distributing incoming and outgoing energy, stresses and loads throughout the body. It also shows that it is a mechanical communications network and possibly a electrical communications network that supplements the nervous system.
