Re: Techniques are dead: Living movement vs dead technique

In terms of "dead or alive" (that's how I always bring them in :-) ) I'm of a mind with Matthew: if I or my partner is half there or disengaged, if I'm thinking even 10 seconds ahead at a goal, it's "dead." If I'm able to be processing my structure, my place in the universe, and my partner Right Now, I may still screw up but things are very much alive and I have screwed up in a way I can learn something meaningful.
