The only way to move as you describe, and be non-random, is aiki.
If I see it right, you understand timing as an aspect of aiki?
It really depends on your perspective. I can easily see why Morihei would have said timing was not a factor.

It has nothing to do with anticipating or strategizing, but there is a certain time in which you must be moving.

I think it is more of a question about what moves you.
