Re: extension and ma-ai

Maai is like when you are driving and need to make a left turn but there are a couple of lanes of oncoming traffic with right of way. The experienced driver doesn't have to work out complex speed, distance, velocity equations; she pauses the car, her brain processes the incoming info and sends muscles the message "go!" or "wait...." and just watches the entire scene calmly until it changes to "go now!"
