I completely agree !!!

A Dutch professor in Greek philosophy always gave the same text to translate by his first year students;
translated it goes; One should not eat to many beans, for they contain a lot of psyche. Psyche meaning wind ! (and breath, life, soul, spirit).

Psyche is a good translation of ki.

But gas is more profound!

So then we can translate aikido as synthesis gas path!
