Context. I brought it up to show how a story develops into a different story.

Now you want a different discussion. And I already explained my position. Read the Kojiki and compare it with the classic Yin - Yang image. Make up your own mind if there is a difference or not.
Well, the problem here is not just the Kojiki, but the fact that the Omoto-kyo interpretation of the Kojiki is somewhat different than the standard - and that Ueshiba's interpretation is often different from that.

What I was interested in was whether or not Kono had any specific comments on the differences, or whether that's your own personal assumption.

And no, the transmission of Aikido did not break down somewhere down the line. It is a matter of finding the right teacher.
I spent a lot of time in Japan, and I saw just about everybody (including Hikitsuchi), and I'll have to disagree there, but I suppose that YMMV.
