Re: Ki is Kindness.

Red is banana.

No, that's not what I meant. Oh, yeah...

All bananas are atheists.

No...

Electricity is kindness?

Hmmmm... Something is wrong here...

What was the old example... A guy is watching a cricket match for the first time after having the game simply explained to him. He sees the bowler, the batsman, the fielders. But then this newcomer asks if someone could point out the player who is the team spirit. Because all teams have bowlers, batsmen, fielders and team spirit.

My latest thought has been that the understanding of "ki" for most in Aikido is what is called a category error. Or maybe better an instance of reification.

Justice is blind. Therefore we should only trust blind judges...
