I disagree with your descriptions of Ueshiba's list

Your redefining without enough information. They clearly do not line up with say; the eight jins of taiji, though we can make similarities.
Hi Dan,

you are probably right - I would love to spend more time with Chris to look at some of the other interesting passages to make more of a case.

But I thought it was an interesting intellectual exercise if nothing else as to why he chose the specific Kanji that he did.
